The Tri-State Restorers and Specialty Cleaners Association (TRSCA) was founded in 1988 in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Association now is expanding across the USA and realized the Tri-State was restrictive and changed to The Restorers and Specialty Cleaning Association. The Founders of TRSCA thought the name did not clearly depict the current state of the industry and its advancements. That is when the name INDOOR ENVIRONMANTAL QUALITY PROFESSIONALS was agreed on and truly embraced the IEQ Industry.
The future of the IEQ Industry needs an Association that brings the Industry together for a common cause. IEQP will be expanding across the USA and one day will be a forum and source for the industry and the community to access for the most recent information and the best educated IEQ Professionals.
IEQP FL is an affiliate know by the State as TRSCA FL and doing business as IEQP FL. TRSCA is a voting Member of the IICRC and our voice can be heard when changes are made to the standard. IEQP FL's connection with Joe Hughes and Cliff Zlotnik and the IICRC should provide great opportunities for superior training
Indoor Environmental Quality Professionals Florida's Board of Directors are highly-trained, experienced and dedicated to the success of your business.
