Oxi Fresh is a revolutionary carpet cleaning system Advertorial

The power of oxygen is undeniable; Mother Nature has used oxygen to naturally purify the earth for thousands of years. Now let the power of oxygen clean your carpets! Oxi Fresh is a revolutionary carpet cleaning system that is committed to being green and environmentally friendly. Our carpet cleaning technology creates a powerful oxygenated cleaning system that breaks down stains so that they can be effectively removed from the carpet pile. Plus, the system is safe for children and pets, leaves no sticky residue, and has a fast one hour dry time! With our standard of excellence, we wouldn’t accept anything less Us vs. Steam Cleaning Steam cleaned carpets can take 24 hours or longer to dry. This annoyingly long dry time is a result of the large amounts of water and chemicals used to clean the carpet rather than brush agitation. And when carpets are that saturated for so long, mold and mildew can become a problem. Another problem that arises with steam cleaning is that the dirty, oily water left in the carpet after a cleaning sinks down to the bottom of the carpet pad. Then, over time, the oils begin moving back up into the carpet, causing stains to reappear. This process is called wick back, and it’s never fun to deal with. Oxi Fresh avoids these problems with its carpet cleaning services by using the power of oxygen to clean, rather than tons of water and chemicals. This means that you avoid over-saturation that can lead to mold and mildew, and instead have a fast, one hour dry time. Plus, our cleaning system doesn’t create dirty, oily water, instead it breaks up dirt and oils and makes them easy to scrub out of the carpet. This not only means that you don’t have to worry about wick back, but that you also get a thorough cleaning with amazing stain removal results. Us vs. Spin Bonnet Spin bonnet cleaning is a fancy way of say-

ing “floor buffer.” This cleaning method is great for cleaning tile, but when it comes to residential carpet cleaning, it is not able to pull the dirt and oily grime out of the carpet. Instead, the dirt and grime get pushed down deeper into the carpet pile. And although the top third of the carpet pile looks clean, the bottom portions remain largely untouched. When this cleaning method is complete, the technician must then rake the carpet back up, after having severely compressed it. This begins lifting stains back up. So rather than pushing dirt and oils deeper into your carpet, Oxi Fresh relies on its pile lifting technology to effectively remove the dirt and oils from the bottom of your carpet pile without compression. This produces a truly deep cleaning as opposed to just the surface cleaning most dry cleaners provide. You see, unlike spin bonnet cleaners, we pride ourselves on providing truly healthy carpet cleaning. The Green Difference Oxi Fresh stands apart from its competitors not only due to its extremely thorough cleaning system, but also because of its commitment to being green. Oxi Fresh’s environmentally friendly cleaning system is designed with the intent to conserve both water and energy, improve the health of your home, and employ green, nontoxic cleaning solutions. That means when you set up an appointment with Oxi Fresh, you can plan on getting a thorough, fast-drying, natural carpet cleaning. Not only will Oxi Fresh help make your carpets clean, but it will also help keep the world clean. All Natural, Environmentally Friendly Products At Oxi Fresh we pride ourselves on cleaning “The Way Mother Nature Cleans®.” As part of our green carpet cleaning standards, we are committed to using safe and green carpet cleaning products in our cleaning system. The solutions we use for our cleaning system are non-toxic and safe in all residential environments, including those with children and

pets. The natural carpet cleaning solutions we use are biodegradable and organic and are expertly applied by our natural carpet cleaners. In order to help protect and improve air quality, our products also contain low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). Using these products, which are gentle on fibers but tough on stains, is all part of our effort to provide a premium, natural carpet cleaning service. Promoting Healthier Living Through Green Carpet Cleaning Some of the health problems that originate at home can be the result of not getting a natural carpet cleaning. How so? Well, when a home gets steam cleaned, a large amount of water is used, up to 40 gallons, and getting this water out of the carpet is very difficult. The cleaners end up leaving 10-20 gallons in the carpet. This dirty water is then trapped in the carpet and the pad, taking 12-36 hours to dry. This long exposure to water not only causes dirt to settle deeper into the carpet, but it also greatly increases the chances of mold and mildew forming. If this happens, your carpet is extremely unhealthy, making abatement or complete carpet replacement necessary. Having to waste so much carpet, use such harsh chemicals, or get an entire second cleaning, though, is a real waste of resources, something we don’t like to see here at Oxi Fresh. Instead, you can use our green carpet cleaning system to promote a healthier indoor environment. By removing contaminants, dust, and allergens in the carpet, your entire home becomes healthier. What’s more, by maintaining your carpet with Oxi Fresh’s natural carpet cleaning, you’ll add years to its life, allowing you to keep it longer rather than having to wastefully replace it. Energy Efficient Carpet Cleaning System Oxi Fresh uses highly efficient cleaning equipment to lower the energy requirements needed for each green carpet cleaning ser-

vice, saving energy and preventing unnecessary waste. But that’s not enough for us. There are also three other important ways in which we provide energy efficient carpet cleaning. No Truck Mounted Machines Truck mounted carpet cleaning systems require their vehicles to continue running throughout the duration of the job. This is done to provide power to the machines being used to clean your home. The vehicles are often running for multiple hours for a single job, releasing large amounts of carbon monoxide and harmful pollutants into the air. To combat energy waste, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning uses a portable cleaning machine that is not truck mounted. Our energy saving carpet cleaning means no running vehicles which means no pollution. No Doors Left Open Truck mounted cleaning systems also require you to leave your doors open throughout the entire carpet cleaning process so that their multiple tubes and hoses can run into your home from the vehicle. This allows the warm air in your home to escape in cooler months and the cool air to escape in warmer months, requiring you to use more energy to re-cool or re-heat your home. Our portable, energy efficient carpet cleaning machines allow you to keep your doors closed throughout the entire process. No Wasted Energy Steam cleaning systems that saturate your carpet with multiple gallons of water require the use of machines designed to extract the wastewater. More energy is needed to power the extraction machines, which, despite all the energy they use, still leave your carpets wet -- often requiring 24-48 hours to dry. Because our carpet cleaning franchises use a low moisture system with green carpet cleaning products, your carpets will dry on their own in approximately one hour. It’s just another advantage of using Oxi Fresh’s energy efficient carpet cleaning.

Handmade Jetton Upholstery Hartford House is not in the upholstery making business, but it does offer what it considers to be the finest upholstery available today in this country. Charles Jetton and his family and associates have been making upholstery for almost 50 years in Taylorsville, North Carolina.The pieces are made of solid maple or oak frames with an 8-way hand-tied suspension. In other words, Jetton’s pieces are made the way furniture“used to be made”when it lasted a lifetime! In fact, all of Jetton’s pieces come with a lifetime warranty! Sofa, short sofa, loveseat, chair, and glider styles abound whether one is looking for very traditional or contemporary items. Customization options also are offered when ordering in any of Jetton’s 200+ fabrics or providing your own fabric. Handmade McNeilly Recliners Jack McNeilly has a furniture background which spans almost half a century, and he has worked with some of the “big guys” including Drexel Heritage. In 2006, Mr. McNeilly decided he wanted to establish his own venture in the form of handmade leather recliners. He started the business with his basic leather club swivel glider (the 231), and it has grown to encompass dozens of styles of recliners, wall huggers, ottomans, and sofas. All are made in his facility in Lawndale, North Carolina, and they come with a lifetime frame warranty. All the leathers used are either top grain or full grain hides. Full grain and top grain leathers are considered to be some of the highest quality available because they are not significantly treated with chemicals which can weaken leather. Full grain and top grain leathers also have greater“breathability” which lengthens their lives. The older the leather gets, the more comfortable it becomes!

Don’t Forget Our Saddle Stools! Mattresses by Jamison Some of Hartford House’s bestselling Hartford House carries a wide variety of pieces are the saddle stools made by Ohio Jamison Mattresses including both spring Mennonites. They are available in cherry, and Talalay Latex foam styles. Since 1883
