VetFran was formed to help men and women who served in the U.S. military transition to civilian life. The late Don Dwyer Sr., founder of the Dwyer Group, developed the idea. VetFran is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association member-companies to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans. To date, nearly 400 franchise companies participate in the program. Visit vetfran.com or franchise.org/veteran-franchise for more information.

In 2010, the EPA announced that one of Oxi Fresh’s core cleaning products received the Design for the Environment Certification, granted only to products that are safe both for families and for the environment. The testing process for these products is exceedingly thorough. Each chemical is examined by itself, then in conjunction with the other chemicals, they check to see if it masks anything else, and consider safer alternatives. To get a product approved is very difficult.
That’s why Oxi Fresh is proud that one of its chief cleaning products was approved by the Design for the Environment team. After undergoing rigirous testing, it can now use the Design for the Envionment logo – proof of its safety for people, animals, and the enviornment as a whole.
Wool carpets are very valuable, luxurious, and, unfortunately, challenging to maintain. Natural fibers simply react in different ways than synthetics do. What worked on one may not work on the other or may actually cause damage. That's why the WOOLSAFE Organization was created. This group examines various cleaning products to see if they are both safe and effective at cleaning wool.
Passing this international organization's test means your cleaning products are truly effective and safe for wool. Oxi Fresh is one of the comprises to earn their approval, and now our Encapsulator, Water-Base Carpet Protector, Odor Destroyer, Enzyme Spotter and Oxi Spotter can proudly bear the WOOLSAFE Organization's seal.
