In the Green
In case we haven’t made it clear, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning is all about being green. It starts with our emphasis on water conservation. Unlike many carpet cleaners, our cleaning system is not dependent on using large amounts of water; generally we use about two gallons to clean an average home. How can we do that? Because it is not the water that is doing most of the cleaning, but rather our oxygenated, safe cleaning solutions. This, in conjunction with our machines, leads to a cleaning that is not only extremely effective but also saves between 38-58 gallons of water per home (compared to traditional hot water extraction methods/steam cleaning).
Then there’s our energy conservation practices. You see, since we don’t have to pump in, extract, or drive around with lots of water, and that means we don’t have to use nearly as much energy than others. Plus, most cleaners have to leave their car on in order to power their equipment, and that means a lot of wasted gas. All Oxi Fresh needs is a wall outlet. And as an added bonus, our low moisture system means you don’t have to leave windows or doors open to help with drying. Your carpets will be dry after about an hour.
But, as I said earlier, we’ve already made it clear how our green carpet cleaning works – so why bring it up? Well, because Entrepreneur magazine published their list of important franchising trends for 2011 and, like last year, “Green” was one of their trends. They also cited a few examples of franchises who exemplify this trend and Oxi Fresh was one of them! This is actually the second year in a row we’ve been cited by Entrepreneur as an example, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. You can read more by heading over to this press release.
