A: In California, a DIR (Department of Industrial Relations) number is required for businesses that perform work on public works projects. However, if you are a sole proprietor providing final clean services for construction projects, you may also need to obtain a California state license.

The specific license required will depend on the scope of work you perform. If your work involves general construction cleanup or janitorial services, you may need to obtain a C-61/D-63 license from the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB).

If you perform specialized cleaning services, such as carpet cleaning or floor waxing, you may need to obtain a separate license from the CSLB.

It's important to note that California state licensing requirements can be complex, and the specifics of your situation may affect which licenses are required. If you are unsure of whether you need a state license, you may want to consult with an attorney or contact the CSLB for guidance.
