Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning with Carl & Teri Geiling

Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning uses a “low moisture” cleaning process to meet a variety of customer carpet cleaning needs. Natural eco-friendly cleaning products and a specialized counter-rotating brush machine are used in the process to generally remove dirt and other particulate matter, eliminate visible stains, and provide carpet sanitization and deodorization.

It is common for carpet to harbor dust mites, pet dander, bacteria and other assorted allergens. For people with allergies or asthma, this creates an uncomfortable living environment and the potential for serious illness. The combined use of the brush machine, together with the action of the Oxi and enzyme cleaning products contained in the cleaning solution and subsequent vacuuming, effectively addresses this situation.

A specialized, enhanced version of the basic cleaning method uses additional cleaning products and higher strength cleaning solution to remove pet urine deposits, stains and associated odor. The local Oxi Fresh franchise business has had good success in meeting this specific carpet cleaning need.

Carl Geiling, a long-time Williamsburg resident and local Oxi Fresh franchise business owner, takes pride in applying state-of-the art, thorough carpet cleaning methods to achieve excellent outcomes, which also extends to upholstery cleaning as well. He has built a business with an excellent reputation through honest pricing, top-quality work and exceptional customer service. In this area, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning is a name people have come to know and trust.

To learn more about the carpet cleaning process and/or book a cleaning appointment, you can go on-line to our website,, or view our local Google profile by typing Oxi Fresh Williamsburg or Oxi Fresh Newport News into the Google browser. You can also reach Carl directly via his cell phone at 757-585-6072.
