LAKEWOOD, Colo., April 24, 2013 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning(R) has received the Carpet and Rug Institute's (CRI) Seal of Approval for its low-moisture cleaning system. The certification was awarded after Oxi Fresh passed numerous tests and met the stringent requirements of the CRI.
The Carpet and Rug Institute is the authority on carpet manufacturing, installation and maintenance in the United States. Since its foundation, the organization has been advancing the industry through research, legislation and maintaining a strict set of standards and practices for each aspect of the carpet industry.
For service providers, these standards include a series of difficult tests. Conducted in a private laboratory, these tests examine every aspect of a company's cleaning system, from the pH levels of their products to the stress it places on carpet fibers over the course of multiple cleanings. If a company can pass the CRI's examination, they become an Approved Service Provider.
Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning officially passed these tests on Friday, March 8th. Robert White, the Director of Cleaning Systems at Oxi Fresh, said that "the CRI's testing policies are among the strictest in the industry, and passing them can be a challenge. Oxi Fresh has an incredible system, and we're thrilled that the CRI awarded us their Seal of Approval."
Jonathan Barnett, the company's president, was equally satisfied with the results. "I can't tell you how pleased I was to hear about the CRI's decision to list Oxi Fresh as one of their approved vendors. We take great pride in both the power and safety of our cleaning system, and to see it recognized like this is a great honor."
