The Calvin Defense

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.

A lot of carpet cleaning companies use excessive amounts of chemicals and soaps when they clean. Unfortunately, their extraction methods aren’t particularly thorough and they end up leaving a lot of soapy residues in the carpet. This mess then acts like a dirt magnet as debris gets stuck to the residue, quickly turning the freshly cleaned carpets filthy again. The customer is frustrated, the money is wasted, and they think that any carpet cleaning must get the carpet dirty faster. It’s not really “cleaning” that makes it get dirty faster, rather its “bad cleanings” that do it.

We here at Oxi Fresh recognize that this problem occurs with a lot of different carpet cleaning services and that it’s made people afraid to get any cleaning. But the good thing about our system is that it doesn’t rely on soapy chemicals. Our green carpet cleaning system uses a residue-free oxygenated booster to break up the dirt and stain, giving you an amazingly clean carpet that doesn’t get dirty quickly.  Our cleanings mean you don’t have to be afraid of getting the carpets cleaned and prevents anyone from using the Calvin Defense.

whoever thought cleaning your couch would be an uplifting experience? thanks to Todd whalon it certainly was for me. he was punctual, polite, very friendly and explained just enough about his product so that i was aware but did not glaze over with tmi. within 15 minutes the couch i was about to pay someone to take away (kidding but it was bad) looked absolutely brand new. no ink marks or water marks or dirt. nothing. and the water marks he warned me about (and was insistent that i call him immediately if i saw them) did not appear. clearly a proud family man, todd was not only absolutely professional and clearly knew what he was doing, but also very personable and i wish his son the best of luck.
