An Ounce of Prevention

Categories: Residential Carpet Cleaning, The Guide to Carpet

I was looking out of my office window today and I saw an abandoned restaurant. From a distance, the building looked like it hasn’t opened up for the day. When I got close to it, though, I saw that the sidewalk was full of shattered bricks, there was broken glass beneath a boarded up window, and decaying phonebooks were stacked outside the entrance.

If you leave something alone too long it will eventually fall apart – it’s one of the few guarantees in life. This is true of carpets as well as buildings. Without proper maintenance, they swiftly fall into disrepair and while emergency restoration can work, it’s far better to schedule regular carpet cleanings.

Yay! Sofas!

Upholstery Cleaning with Oxi Fresh

You can’t know everyone. There are just too many people and not enough time. Heck, most of us don’t even know everyone we work with. Yeah, we can spend eight or more hours a day sharing a building, a floor, or even a row of cubicles, but unless work causes our paths to cross or we make an intentional effort, we may not interact with them more than the occasional “Hello.” Sometimes we really don’t even know the people with whom we spend a good amount of time. It’s just easy to forget that Bob from Accounting has a life outside his job.

And no, I’m not being critical – every day we interact with lots of people and remembering all the details would be nigh on impossible. The same is true of businesses. You may go to a certain store every day to pick up one item and therefore miss the wide variety of products they offer. And if you’ve only just heard of Oxi Fresh or perhaps used them in the past, you may not know much about us. Hopefully, though, you know that we provide high quality carpet cleanings that dry quickly and are safe for the environment. But carpets aren’t the only thing we clean. Just like Bob from Accounting, we have hobbies outside of our chief job. Continue Reading post – Beyond the Office

All Year Round

Categories: Residential Carpet Cleaning

One thing most of us are used to at this point is round the clock service for, well, just about everything. Many of our grocery store chains are open twenty-four seven, Wal-Marts almost never close their doors, fast food restaurants are either open at all hours or are open so late that they’re practically open 24/7. And even if a store isn’t open at all hours, generally they’ll close pretty late in the day, giving you more than enough time to get what you need done. This, of course, isn’t true of every business. Carpet cleaners generally don’t schedule 2 AM carpet cleanings.

But even though Oxi Fresh isn’t doing around the clock carpet cleanings, it does do cleanings all year round. Okay, maybe that doesn’t sound terribly impressive. It’s sounds a bit like saying, “Not only does my car have wheels, but it goes too.” So let me clarify: Oxi Fresh cleans year round, giving you that fast drying carpet cleaning even in the dead of winter. Ah, now that makes the difference. Continue Reading post – All Year Round

As You Like It – Convenient Carpet Cleaning

Categories: Carpet Cleaning Tips, Oxi Fresh News, Residential Carpet Cleaning

Let’s all be honest, we like it when things are incredibly convenient. Cooking every meal was once the norm – as was doing the heavy preparation of things like baking and canning – and now we can, without getting out of our cars, get hot food for an entire family in a manner of minutes. It’s really nice to be able to do that, isn’t it? Of course, making a meal for your family isn’t something we’d want to stop doing, it’s just nice to have an easy alternative in case we don’t have the time to cook. So, if we have such convenience when it comes to food (and hundreds of other areas as well) why are carpet cleanings so annoying and inconvenient?

To start, a lot of carpet cleaning companies do not book for specific times, but rather windows. That means they can say “We’ll be there between 2 and 4″ and you’re stuck waiting for them to arrive. Wouldn’t it be nice to know exactly when your cleaner was arriving? That way you could schedule the cleaning into your day rather then your day around a carpet cleaning. Well, if you schedule a cleaning with Oxi Fresh, that’s just what you can do. Rather than making you wait, we book appointments for specific times and strive to always be there right on time.

What We Do Differently

Categories: Residential Carpet Cleaning

So what does Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning do differently than our competition? Well, just about everything. To begin, Oxi Fresh provides a fast drying carpet cleaning. That means, unlike the hot water extraction method – “steam” cleaners – our method doesn’t depend on soaking the carpet. Since we know that type of cleaning  fails to provide the most thorough job, we see no reason to repeat what they do.  Instead,  for our carpet cleaning services, we will use just a small amount of water, combined with our oxygenated booster and our encapsulator, and spray that over the carpet.

The booster begins breaking up the dirt and stains in the carpet, and then the encapsulator forms microscopic crystals around those stains (both are non toxic carpet cleaning solutions) making them easy to remove from the carpet.  This two step process is extremely effective, and can take care of most stains in the carpets with relative ease. What’s more, since Oxi Fresh is a fast drying carpet cleaner, the carpets dry in about an hour after their sprayed. Continue Reading post – What We Do Differently

The Competition – Part II

Categories: Carpet Cleaning Tips, Residential Carpet Cleaning

Now I’m going to tell you about dry cleaning, a method used by some carpet cleaning companies who compete to Oxi Fresh. Unlike steam cleaning, which tries to use a lot of water in order to break up and then suck up the stains,  dry cleaning uses no or very little liquid.  Instead, they rely on a scrubbing system.  They use a machine called a “Spinning Bonnet,” that is supposed to break up the stains in the carpet and then absorb them.  The idea sounds good in passing, but if you examine it closely, you’ll find major flaws.

The first problem with this professional carpet cleaning arises with the machine itself. The “Spinning Bonnet” is, in essence, a floor buffer with an absorbent pad attached to it.  Floor buffers are excellent for cleaning floors – but floors like tile & grout, hardwoods, and linoleum. Why? Well, they scrub downwards and in circles, so they only work on flat surfaces. Because carpet has depth, though, the the bristles can’t clean the entire carpet. Their downward scrubbing motion only cleans the surface while compressing carpet fibers and pushing dirt and stains further down. Continue Reading post – The Competition – Part II
