From Law Enforcement to Franchising


When life gets busy, keeping your home clean can fall behind. Before you know it, the floors look grimy and dingy. That’s when you know you need a carpet cleaning from Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning of Boone.


First opened in April 2022, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning of Boone primarily services the cities of Boone, Banner Elk, Deep Gap, Elk Park, Fleetwood, Sugar Grove, Todd, Vilas, Zionville, and more locations stretched across five North Carolina counties. Wade Colvard and his fiancée Heather own this Oxi Fresh location.


From Law Enforcement to Franchising

Mr. Colvard is a former law enforcement officer who proudly served his home community. After seventeen years as a police officer, he decided to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams alongside his fiancé. They turned to the world of franchising and found Oxi Fresh, one of the fastest-growing carpet cleaning franchise brands available.


Wade has effectively transferred many of the skills he developed from his long law enforcement career to his new business. His clientele has recognized him for his keen attention to detail, knowledge of local companies, and ability to effectively converse with and educate them on the advantages of Oxi Fresh.


What’s more, upon first opening his Oxi Fresh business earlier this year, Colvard realized that his 17 years of working face-to-face with the community as a police officer was helping him immensely. Thanks to his background, he was able to quickly establish connections with business leaders and potential clients, giving his Oxi Fresh business a head start.


For those in the franchising industry, Colvard and his Oxi Fresh business stand as a shining example of how one can utilize skills developed in real-world situations to operate a successful small business.


World-Class Cleanings with the Power of Oxygen

At Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning of Boone, Colvard and his team use eco-friendly solutions that are tough on dirt and grime but easy on the environment. But what, you may ask, happens during an Oxi Fresh cleaning? Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:


Step 1

First, Wade starts by doing a careful inspection of the floors for any particularly soiled areas.


Step 2

He then applies an enzyme-powered pretreatment to the most heavily soiled spots. This solution is able to break down stuck-in grime and dirt.


Step 3

Next, Wade will use the brand’s core cleaning solution across the floor. This two-part solution contains an oxygenated booster that breaks down dirt. As that works, the encapsulator in the solution traps debris in microscopic sodium crystals.


Step 4

Wade then breaks out his revolutionary OF1000 carpet cleaning machine. The OF1000 uses dual, counter-rotating brushes to agitate the carpet fibers and extract trapped debris.


Step 5

To wrap it up, Wade will vacuum and groom the carpet to leave it with a pristine finish.
