Council Helps Identify Insured and Certified IAQ Professionals 08/23/2007 | The American Indoor Air Quality Council's website will feature companies that carry professional liability insurance The American Indoor Air Quality Council has announced an addition to its website: a locator service listing insured companies that employ IAQ Council-certified professionals. Companies that carry professional liability insurance will be listed in the locator upon request, along with the names of IAQ Council certificants in their employment. The American IAQ Council has always encouraged consumers to inquire about professional insurance when hiring Council-certified professionals. Now the IAQ Council has done some of the legwork for them. "Professional insurance and IAQ Council certification are important marks of reliability and credibility in the indoor air quality industry," says Charlie Wiles, IAQ Council executive director. "Our locator service provides companies that have these distinctions with a powerful means of getting their message to consumers." "At the same time, the locator allows consumers to verify the quality and reputation of the firms they are hiring," says Wiles. "We believe [that] the industry as a whole will benefit from this service." The locator database is searchable by zip code or company name and will return all qualifying companies within 100 miles of the zip code entered. Listing in the locator is provided free of charge as a service to IAQ Council certificants and their employers. Listings include company name, certificant name, and professional insurance carrier. Consumers are encouraged to inquire further about coverage for specialty risks, such as mold. This information is provided by the American Indoor Air Quality Council, a non-profit certifying body founded in 1993 to serve the indoor air quality industry. The IAQ Council operates independent, third-party-accredited certification programs for indoor environmental consultants, microbial consultants, microbial remediators, indoor air quality administrators, and residential mold inspectors. The IAQ Council certifies more than 5,000 professionals in the United States, Canada, and overseas. For more information about the IAQ Council and its programs, visit (www.iaqcouncil.org).
