A brand new carpet cleaner is now making its way into Canada.
The Organic Cleaner company said it made the announcement Thursday after conducting a clinical study of the cleaner.
“This is not something that’s a new product that’s coming out of China,” said company president and CEO Matt Taylor.
“We have done clinical trials for this cleaner in China for a long time, and it’s been proven safe and effective in terms of cleaning the carpet.”
The company said the cleaner, called Oxi, is made from a mix of algae and organic compounds, and is made using a special method that doesn’t involve chemicals.
It will cost $19 a can.
The company, which has an office in Ottawa, said it is looking into other markets.
In the meantime, organic carpet cleaning is not a new idea.
In 2016, organic furniture cleaning products were also on the market.
But the company has since announced it is scaling back its offerings, including the Oxi cleaner, and that it will only be available to customers in Canada.
“In Canada, there’s not much organic carpet product on the shelf.
We were really interested in bringing our product to market, and we are working on a number of other markets, but we are still limited in the size and variety of our market,” said Taylor.
He said the company is currently developing a pilot program in China, where the cleaner is being tested.
In a statement, the company said Oxi was the first of its kind in Canada and was designed to provide a clean alternative to traditional carpet cleaning products.
The cleaner uses a special chemical that is safe for people who live in residential communities and is formulated with natural organic ingredients.
“Oxi is designed to help people get rid of unwanted carpet in a convenient, affordable and environmentally responsible way,” the statement said.
