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.

Cort was on time, worked efficiently and effectively.  He’s trustworthy ~ I left him in my home alone while I went to carpool to get the kids. He finished up and locked the door behind him.  He took the estimated amount of time to do the job and at the estimated price.  He also told me he’s handy for lots of jobs in his slow season ~ January and February~ from tiling to putting in hardwood floors, and other home maintenance jobs.  I would definitely recommend Cort’s service and product.

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 !!

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.

These guys are the best at carpet cleaning!  I will recommend them to everyone.  I thought the carpet in the room was grey.  Turns out it was really blue.  Awesome Job!
From Start to Finish, and excellent job, fantastic technicians.

“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!”

“James Key used CitruSolution to clean two light colored wing chairs and a recliner for us and they look great!  Also there was no offensive odor and all dried quickly.  The same is true for the dining room rug.  Since he has worked in our home several times, I know James’ work ethic to be amazing.  He always want his customers to be perfectly satisfied – and we are.  In addition, James is punctual, thorough, dependable, and trustworthy.  His integrity, honesty and initiative are outstanding.”
