Oxi Fresh is Cleaning Up Southeast Michigan
Melanoma survivor turned entrepreneur brings sustainable carpet cleaning to Detroit suburbs
October 28, 2019 // Franchising.com // LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, the nation's greenest carpet cleaning franchise, is launching its newest location in Southeast Michigan.
The newest Oxi Fresh location is headed up by Detroit native Kevin Papke. His territory will service Clawson, Royal Oak, Pleasant Ridge, Huntington Woods, Madison Heights, Berkley, Lathrup Village, Troy, Warren, Ferndale, Oak Park and surrounding areas. The location is slated to open later this fall.
Papke, a Stage IV melanoma cancer survivor of over 11 years, left his corporate job programming industrial robots for GM, Ford and Chrysler to pursue a business venture that provided him with the opportunity to be more independent.
"At my previous job, I was traveling a lot and spending way too much time away from my family and friends. I've been through a lot in my life and I realized that I wanted to make my own rules and start a business that I know I’ll be really proud of,” Papke said. “Oxi Fresh has a great, sustainable service that I think a lot of people in the area will appreciate.”
Oxi Fresh, which has nearly 400 locations throughout the United States and Canada, prides itself on offering oxygen-powered, green carpet cleanings that dry in about one hour. The company achieves this via a cleaning method that uses safe carpet solutions and requires only two gallons of water per home - as opposed to the 40-60 gallons that other carpet cleaners use. This enables both the rapid one-hour dry time and, since the company started in 2006, has helped save millions of gallons of water.
“Everyone needs a carpet cleaner and Oxi Fresh is the right cleaner to choose. Our results, our fast dry times, and our green methods put us above and beyond our competitors,” said Papke. “In fact, it’s those factors that also helped me decide to join Oxi Fresh as a franchisee. Another reason I picked Oxi Fresh was the fact that the company donates to Water.org with every job scheduled online.”
In addition to carpet cleaning, Oxi Fresh cleans upholstery, hardwood floors and tile and grout.
