Edge filtration

Have you ever noticed a dirty edge on someone’s carpet?  Most people would think that the carpet is not being vacuumed on the very edge but this isn’t always true.  Your carpet is a big filter and traps a lot of dirt.  The dark edge on the carpet is due to air movement under that wall.  Air is moving under the wall and could be moving in either direction depending whether there is positive or negative pressure.  The carpet fibers at the edge are catching the dirt and creates the dark edge.

When the houses are being built the sheet rock does not go all the way to the floor.  The base board is raised about a half inch off the floor to allow the carpet to be pushed under the board.  This looks a lot nicer but allows air to move under the wall.  The only way to fix this is to remove the carpet and use spray foam under the base board.  This will seal any openings that will allow air to move under the wall.

DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT.

They were prompt, and professional and made our furniture and carpet look almost brand new.  Their price was very reasonable for the work
performed and I would recommend them without hesitation. They confirmed our appointment and called to ask if they could come a little earlier than scheduled.  Cort explained the entire process before starting, did a great job and left a bottle of spot cleaner when finished. I  will use this locally owned business in the future for any upholstery or carpet cleaning needs.

“I am delighted with the results of having the carpet in my home cleaned with CitruSolution.  The fresh scent is wonderful, and certainly a welcome change from the heavy odors of solutions used by other companies.  Visitors even commented on the great citrus scent when they entered my home.  CitruSolution also left the carpets looking brand new.  As an allergy sufferer, I was thrilled to learn that CitruSolution also addresses the allergens that become trapped in carpet.  My whole home just felt like a healthier environment afterwards.  Another amazing feature of CitruSolution is just how quickly the carpet dries after cleaning.  No more waiting for hours and hours to return to everyday activities.  Finally, I’d like to commend James Key for his professionalism when explaining the product and his very respectful and friendly attitude.  I would highly recommend him and CitruSolution to friends!”

We have used Citrus Solutions – Mr. Key on multiple occasions over the years.  He does a fantastic job as well as reliable, on time and most important to me, knowledgeable.  As advertised, the smell is great.  Mr. Key has cleaned the carpets in the tenant’s apt each time we have a new tenant and the carpets stay fresh and stain-free.  We will always use Mr. Key to clean our carpets, both in the apt as well as our home.  Suburb service !!

I have been wonderfully impressed by the quality of work that is done by Cort Demmert of Citrusolution Carpet Cleaning.  He is extremely thorough with the cleaning.  He works very hard to get out the worst stains imaginable – stains that have been in the carpet a long time – that other  carpet cleaners have failed to remove.  He has done carpets and upholstery with the same fantastic results.  My carpets and upholstery look like new.  And I especially like the fact that the company uses organic/natural cleaners.  There is never a bad/chemical smell to my home.  The carpets can be walked on quickly.  I would – and do – recommend Cort to everyone needing their carpets and upholstery cleaned.  He has done the carpets at my house of worship as well as carpets and upholstery for other friends and neighbors – all of whom are thrilled with the results.”

Cort was very professional, courteous and friendly and did an amazing and complete job of cleaning the carpets.  He took his time and didn’t seem rushed at all.  The fresh citrus smell is very pleasing and the carpets dry quickly, in about two hours, since they are not soaked through with water.  He was able to get out all the spots, including pet stains, food spills and several of unknown origin and the carpets look new again.  I would highly recommend Citrusolution!

James and Cort were honest, fair and hard-working. All you would want in decent people trying to do a great job for a fair price. They even came back to my house after they left to tell me I was due some credit back….very honest. I recommend them strongly!
