Ctenocephalides felis

I had a client ask me if carpet cleaning will kill fleas.  Unfortunately, the answer is NO!  Citrusolution carpet cleaning reduces dust mites and allergens but will not kill fleas.  Even steam cleaning will not get rid of the fleas!  You will need a pest control company to treat your home.  Ed Whiting with BW Pest Solutions suggests the following to clean your carpet and get rid of fleas:

  1. 1) Vacuum your carpets extremely well
  2. 2) Have Citrusolution clean your carpets since we scrub your carpets and then vacuum clean your carpet
  3. 3) Then have BW Pest Solution treat your carpet for fleas.

Vacuuming is important to remove the fleas and to stir up the larva.  Citrusolution carpet cleaning agitates the fleas and larva with the scrubbing and the vacuuming sucks them up.  Then the last step is to treat the carpet for fleas.  You want this treatment to stay in carpet for a while to make sure the larva die.   A reliable pest control company in Richmond, VA that I would highly recommend is: Ed Whiting at  BW Pest Solutions at 804.901.1218

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!

Top qualities:  Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity – Unbelievable results on what his product does.  We hired Citrusolution right before Thanksgiving just to improve the look in our house.  We have older carpets that had some difficult stains that some of the larger carpet cleaners could not get out.  Our carpets looked brand new, except for wear.  All but one stain were removed and you have to look hard at the area of the stain that was left to see it.  That was a full glass of red wine on sand colored carpet.  We have tried for years to get many of those stains out.  If you need your carpets cleaned, call them.

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 folks are super responsive. I was called back right away and they had availability to service me within 48 to 72 hours.  They arrived on time and on the right date. They were respectful to my property and took special care to not scuff wood flooring.  I have 2 dogs and they did an excellent job of cleaning 12 year old carpet and it looked like new when they were done.  They even were willing to clean an area rug that I had not included in the original quote.  The carpet was dry within two hours. No where near the soggy mess that is left by the major Carpet Cleaning groups.  The citrus concoction that they use smells clean not like a bunch of chemicals mixed with fragrance.

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.

“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.”
