Going Green: Oxi Fresh Ranks High for Eco-Friendliness
Places with Disney, Google, and Other Major Companies
Lakewood, CO – Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, one of the fastest growing carpet cleaning franchises in the world, has earned a top position in a listing of companies with outstanding green initiatives. In this ranking on Empress.io, an online resource that helps companies and entrepreneurs pursue sustainability, Oxi Fresh placed alongside companies like Disney, Google, Ford, and others.
“We built ourselves to be green,” said Jonathan Barnett, the company’s founder and CEO “From our products to our equipment to our process, we’ve made a concerted effort to reduce resource waste and ensure the eco-friendliness of our system. It’s encouraging to rank on Empress’s list, and doubly encouraging when we rank alongside true titans like Google.”
Empress.io cited several reasons behind the carpet cleaning franchise company’s #5 position. These include the company’s water conservation, energy efficient practices, and safe solutions. They also mentioned Oxi Fresh’s commitment to Water.org. “[T]his company makes an ongoing financial pledge to water.org each time a booking is made on their website using their scheduling tool. This cause is one which helps to provide safe, clean water to those who need it most in the world.”
“We’re very pleased with our position,” said Rob White, the company’s Director of Cleaning Systems, “We’ve made a real effort to be the World’s Greenest Carpet Cleaner®. Getting recognized like this shows people are paying attention to our green initiatives.”
Oxi Fresh's Green Initiatives
Those initiatives include the carpet cleaning franchise company’s suite of eco-friendly carpet products. They designed these solutions to increase cleaning power while also being safe for the planet. One of these products, their Encapsulator, has the Safer Choice label from the EPA.
Another initiative is their equipment – it only needs power from a normal wall outlet. This sets Oxi Fresh apart from many in their industry that use truck-mounted system. These cleaners have to leave their vehicle running during the appointment. This produces unnecessary air and noise pollution.
The last way the company helps protect the environment is through water conservation. Unlike traditional steam cleaning that needs 40-60 gallons of water to clean around six rooms of carpet, Oxi Fresh just needs about two gallons. This 95% conservation rate means the company has helped save tens of millions of gallons of water since 2006.
“Being green is part of who we are,” said Kris Antolak, the company’s vice president, “We want to help make our world a greener place while making our customers’ homes healthier, cleaner places. Thanks to our solutions, methods, and equipment, we can do just that.”
