The Calvin Defense

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.

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.

I thought you did a great job. I didn’t like the smell of the carpets afterwards but I don’t know if that can be changed JO. - Bend, OR - 09/14/2019

I was so grateful to not only have professionalism, but to experience perfection took it to a whole other level. Garrett was more than thorough in explaining the cleaning services and options, as well the procedures he followed when cleaning the carpets in 2 big rooms. I would love to have him back for the remainder of the house, but I'd also love to have my wood floors and some upholstery done so I'm hoping that will be an option at some point. Oxygenated cleaning is the way to go and I'm happy I went with it. What dry time? Jeez, I don't think there really was any.! Of course there was but it seemed like nothing and probably less than an hour. All in all I highly recommend Oxi Fresh and Garrett for truly the best carpet cleaning I've ever had. Many, many thanks!
