Oxi Fresh Expanding Arkansas Footprint
Husband-and-wife team opening eco-friendly carpet cleaning franchise to service northwest Arkansas.
July 09, 2020 // Franchising.com // LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, is continuing to expand its presence in Arkansas. Oxi Fresh announced that it has signed a new franchisee that will bring the brand’s unique eco-friendly carpet cleaning service to Fort Smith, Arkansas.
The newest Oxi Fresh location is owned and operated by husband-and-wife duo Luke and Mandi Erickson. The Erickson’s location opened on July 1.
“We were looking to get involved in a business where we could work for ourselves while also providing a necessary service to our community,” stated Luke. “After learning more about Oxi Fresh’s eco-friendly carpet cleaning process, its franchisee support, and its proven business model, we knew that we wanted to bring Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning to Fort Smith.”
Prior to becoming an Oxi Fresh franchisee, Luke has spent the last year working as a business coach for an Oklahoma-based business consulting firm, where he helps clients with search engine optimization, as well as streamline their processes, and strengthen their systems. Luke has also served as a pastor for the last 12 years at various churches throughout the country. He plans to use his business background and the dedication to his community he learned from being a pastor to help make his new Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning of Fort Smith location a success.
“I knew I was looking for a business with systems in-place and a track record of growth,” said Luke. “Oxi Fresh’s unique, oxygenated carpet cleaning process, combined with its dedication to providing a high quality service were a perfect fit with my values. Especially during these unprecedented times, access to powerful cleaning services like Oxi Fresh are paramount to creating a clean and safe environment in one’s home.”
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Oxi Fresh has been providing important services in markets across the country, such as their carpet sanitizing service or their hard surface disinfecting service that meets the EPA’s benchmark for use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. While providing these important services, Oxi Fresh operators are required to maintain social distancing guidelines, wear the proper personal protective equipment, and follow the CDC’s guidelines for cleanliness and hygiene.
Since 2006, Oxi Fresh has been an industry leader in the carpet cleaning space. The brand’s proprietary oxygenated cleaning process uses about two gallons of water to clean a home, while traditional steam cleaners use 40-60 gallons. Because the process utilizes less water, carpets cleaned by Oxi Fresh usually dry in about an hour, far less than the 12-24 hours that other cleaners require. The brand estimates that its unique cleaning process has saved the planet tens of millions of gallons of water.
“We are thrilled to add Luke and Mandi to the Oxi Fresh family,” stated Oxi Fresh CEO and founder Jonathan Barnett. “As demand for our cleaning and sanitizing services continues to rise, dedicated franchisees like the Erickson’s help us continue to grow and provide customers with a high quality carpet cleaning experience. We look forward to seeing the positive impact that their Oxi Fresh location will have on their community.”
