About CFI « Carpet and Fabricare Institute

CFI is dedicated to you, the cleaning professional. Our founding fathers, Gene and George Jansen, had a great idea. They believed that if area cleaners shared experiences and information as a group, the industry (and consumers) as a whole would benefit. That was in 1954, and the same stands true today..

CFI is a Non-Profit Trade Association for professionals in the inspection, cleaning, remediation and  restoration  industry.  We maintain  Shareholder Group A status with the IICRC and are an affinity association of the World Floorcovering Association. (WFCA)

CFI Gold Member benefits include discounts on IICRC approved certification and continuing education classes, discounts from our Associate Members (suppliers, distributors and instructors) discounts on registration to  Connections Convention and Trade Shows and free local Chapter Meetings and Regional Educational Days (RED’s).

CFI Platinum Members receive all of the above and full WFCA benefits including access to the WFCA scholarship fund.

Please read our Code of Ethics to learn  more information about our committment to professional conduct and excellent service as leaders in our industry.
