- THE MAGAZINE
Since 1954, the Carpet & Fabricare Institute (CFI) has grown to include Arizona, California and Nevada. We are one of the largest regional non-profit inspection, cleaning, remediation and restoration associations in the country.
Joining CFI benefits you and your business. It allows you to attend practical classes learning new techniques in higher profit margin areas such as tile and grout cleaning, and stone care. Membership gives you access to discounts on training, tools, materials and chemicals. You will also get CFI pricing for the Connections Conventions and Trade Show (held twice a year), WFCA scholarships and access to a members-only area on our website.
