Carpet Cleaning and Frogs

Frogs and Carpet Fibers

Most everyone reading this post, myself included, have taken a biology class at one time or another. We studied cell mitosis, the structures of various microscopic organisms, how plants  draw water up their stems, and so on. We had to know the names of various kingdoms, phylum, and classes and what made them distinct from one another. But, one of the things people most remember about biology classes are the dissections. Whether we found them interesting, cruel, or gross, they are, if nothing else, memorable.  But what was the goal of those dissections? Simply to  see and really understand what physical life is made of. They didn’t, after all, need frog surgeons.

Likewise, we here at Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning want to help you understand what your carpet is made of – though we won’t make you dissect your carpets. In an earlier post we already explained the differences between the various carpet pile types – saxony, loop, berber, etc. – but now we want to tell you about the actual fibers themselves. There are four traditional fiber types used in most carpets: Nylon, Polypropylene, Polyester, and Wool. Continue Reading post – Carpet Biology

The Calvin Defense

Categories: Oxi Fresh News

Anyone up for a philosophical discussion while we careen toward that gulch?

Carpet Cleaning and Calvin

Although it’s been out of papers for quite a while now, Calvin & Hobbes still has a special place in many people’s hearts. Whether they read it as a kid, found it later in life, or are just discovering it now, these beautifully drawn comics are still entertaining and meaningful. Why am I talking about them though? Well, because one particular comic is relevant to many people who don’t get their carpets cleaned. Calvin was going through his daily chores – making the bed, bathing, brushing his teeth, and so on. But as he approached each task, stopped himself, and said “Why should I do ________. They’ll just get dirty again.”

Of course, to most adults that’s silly. You’ve got to keep yourself clean and brush your teeth, otherwise you’ll start to get foul smelling and loose your teeth (making the bed I can take or leave.) Yet we grown-ups make a similar claim when we consider having our carpets cleaned. We think, “Why should I get them cleaned. They’ll just get dirty again – and faster then before.” Unlike Calvin, though, this resistance to carpet cleaning is somewhat based on a fair conclusion. Continue Reading post – The Calvin Defense

Add Ons and Oxi Fresh

Categories: Oxi Fresh News

When someone is buying a car, they’re usually offered a plethora of features and luxuries that they can add-on to their car. XM radio, leather seats, specially tinted windows, an iPod dock, and much more. And while none of these features are strictly necessary, they certainly can be quite fun. That’s true of a lot of add-ons (you don’t need the extra large cup-holder, but why not?) but not the ones offered by Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning. If we suggest an add-on to you, it’s because we think it’ll help improve the overall quality of your carpet.

Let’s look at our Odor Destroyer.  This isn’t a product we throw around and recommend willy-nilly to everyone. The Odor Destroyer was designed with a specific purpose in mind – stopping smells where they begin – and it’s pointless to apply it to carpets that smell fine. You see, this product is actually comprised of active bio-enzymes that eat the bacteria that cause odors. Rather then just covering up the smell, it literally kills it. Offering an Odor Destroyer to someone who didn’t need it would be like offering to upgrade someone’s speakers when they’re deaf – it doesn’t serve any purpose.

Jonathan Barnett – The Man Behind Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning

Categories: Oxi Fresh News

Every great company usually has its foundation in one person. Sometimes they’re someone within the company itself who comes upon a certain idea and realizes the great potential therein, causing the business to grow exponentially. Sometimes it’s an investor who sees a business and realizes it has great potential and decides to give it the funds it needs to reach the next level. Often, though, it’s the person with the original idea. That spark that causes them to create a business from nothing and build it up until it’s an unstoppable force.  Jonathan Barnett, the founder of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, is one of the latter. His company is still young, but he’s in the midst of it all, working hard to make sure that Oxi Fresh never stops growing.

Jonathan started Oxi Fresh in 2006, but his interest in business goes back much further. As a matter of fact, one of his earliest business ventures was all the way back in Elementary school. Every year, his dog would have a litter of puppies, and every year he would start a “Puppy Business” selling them to other families.  Admittedly, it was a rather small scale affair, but it illustrates just how business minded Jonathan has always been. His college years saw no end to his drive.  He played on Oral Roberts University’s D1 basketball team, served as team chaplain, founded a charity called Crossover International, and opened up a chain of Johnny B’s Firework Stands – a venture that made enough money to pay for most of his college tuition. Did we mention that he did all of this in just one year? Continue Reading post – Jonathan Barnett – The Man Behind Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning
