About Us

Cleaning & Restoration Magazine is the oldest trade publication specifically dedicated to the cleaning and restoration industry. C&R was founded by the Restoration Industry Association more than four decades ago, as a member-only benefit.

In July 2021, C&R came under the leadership of ongoing industry media partner, Michelle Blevins.

Today, C&R is available in print and digital formats for free, to the entire industry. This also opens up access to a library of historical content from early industry pioneers. As part of the refreshed C&R, a new industry resource website is now live at www.candrmagazine.com. This new website will include magazine articles, web-exclusive content, new podcasts and videos, the latest industry news, an up-to-date events calendar, and more.

Blevins has been part of the restoration industry since 2015, and is endlessly passionate about bringing high quality educational content of all kinds to contractors, through the expertise of industry educators, thought leaders, trainers, and peers. She lives in Metro Detroit with her husband and two sons.

Please feel free to reach out to Michelle any time with comments, questions, and topic ideas at michelle@candrmagazine.com
