The CRA is proud to be a founding member of the new national member organization, the ICRA (Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Association).

The CRA is proud to be a founding member of the new national member organization, the ICRA (Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Association). Working along with six additional U.S. regional trade associations, the CRA will promote and improve service and education for their members. This collaboration of ideas and resources will create new opportunities and benefits for CRA members as well as unify the industry. For more information about the ICRA, please contact the CRA office.

The CRA has been working to put together unique educational opportunities, such as the U.C. Davis Textile Tour hosted by Steve Marsh of Be Competition Free and Doug Kuehne of King’s Carpet Services. Attendees toured the college lab getting the latest information on new textiles and fiber development direct from UCD professors. Look for additional events such as this to be scheduled soon!
