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!

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 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.”

The person who performed the service was one of the owners of the company.  He arrived on time, explained the process and got right to work.  He was very professional, polite and pleasant.  He was very organized and had everything that he needed at his disposal which made the entire process very efficient and quick.  The solution that was used smelled terrific, very orangie and it left my entire home with a very pleasant citrus scent.  We had a ceiling fan in the room and the furniture dried fairly quickly, maybe two to three hours.  I  was also left a spray bottle of the solution for future touch-ups.  I would not hesitate to use this company in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone.

This is the third time Cort has done our part of our house (we have hardwoods on first level) and we are super pleased every time he visits.  He is pleasant, professional and clearly enjoys what he does.  The product is excellent – orange is the only way to go, and carpets do stay cleaner longer than with soap-based cleaning services.  The house smells great and I think the service is well-priced.  I will never use another service.
