Why should I get my carpets professionally cleaned?


Most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, where pollutants may be at levels 200% to 500% higher than outdoors, even in cities with a lot of air pollution. The EPA lists indoor air quality (IAQ) as the 4th largest environmental threat to our country.

Dust mites in particular affect indoor air quality. Although they are invisible to the eye, dust mites live off the gunk that sinks down into the carpet. Every time someone walks across the carpet, dust mites and pollutants are released into the air.

Pollutants can stay airborne for an hour or more, so that the average home will always have these particulate in the air. This is especially harmful to those with allergies. This is why we believe carpet cleaning is foremost a health issue, secondarily an appearance issue.

When your carpets are cleaned using CitruSolution®, they don’t just look good. Our cleaner contains d-Limonene, a naturally occurring citrus product extracted from the peels of oranges, lemons, and grapefruit. D-Limonene has been proven to destroy dust mites and other common allergens that can cause respiratory problems.

How often should I have my carpets cleaned?

You wash your laundry after every use, and you don’t walk all over it! Cleaning with CitruSolution® every 6-12 months get’s out the dirt and allergens that your vacuum doesn’t. Pick a “reminder date” like the week before a birthday, Mothers Day, Thanksgiving or Memorial Day! The EPA recommends having your carpets cleaned once a year, or twice a year if you have pets or children.

One reason is that a carpet actually acts as an air filter in your home. As air is moving in your home, and it does move, the carpet fibers are trapping contaminants just like the air filter is doing. You replace your air filter every three months or more. How often do you have the biggest air filter in your home cleaned? Having your carpets maintained does more than improve their appearance, it promotes health. We can reduce the allergens in your carpet, and many times eliminate allergy problems for people.

How should I keep my carpet looking clean for longer?

Catch the dirt at the door. Remember that bathroom floor, gas station pavement, or muddy lawn you just walked on? A high quality door mat/carpet is well worth the investment. Leave your shoes at the door, and if you like to wear shoes indoors, keep an “inside only” pair.

And vacuum, vacuum, vacuum! We can’t stress this enough. Think of each grain of dirt as a carpet fiber’s enemy. By abrasion, they wear and tear the fiber, and leave it more prone to staining. Also, when you vacuum your carpets you remove live and dead dust mites, and also their source of nourishment — dead skin. Use a high quality vacuum with a HEPA air filter to prevent dust from running through the vacuum and back into your home.

Can CitruSolution® handle pet stains?


We love animals… and we know that they can make a big mess. Do you have a carpet, chair, couch or anything else that’s been ruined by your pet? It won’t be a problem for our team. Just give us a call at (321) 292-9753, and we’ll get the stain right out!

Why do the spots in my carpet keep coming back?


Spots reappearing typically are caused by one of a couple culprits. Either something sticky on your carpet is attracting debris and dirt, usually an off-the-shelf foamy or soapy spot cleaner. Resurfacing spots could also be caused by the soapy carpet cleaning products used by our competitors. They might even use extra soap to try and remove the stain, which ultimately only makes the problem worse. They also use tons of water, which helps wick up stains buried in your carpet. Though it rarely happens, if a stubborn spot returns after we’ve left, you can just remove it with the bottle of CitruSolution we leave at every visit.

Do you move furniture when you come to clean my carpet?


We request that you please move everything in an area you want cleaned. It’s a liability for us to move your property, though we are more than happy to help move a few items if you need a hand. We recommend moving items to a room not being cleaned, like a kitchen.

Why is there a dark area along my baseboards and closet doors?


This condition, known as “air infiltration” is caused by your carpet literally filtering the dirt out of the air in your house. Sealing your air ducts or installing air filters should reduce this dark area.

I just spilled all over my carpet! What should I do?

Remember, spills and soiling can be removed, stained carpet fiber is forever!

No matter what the spill or soiling, the MOST important step is to deal with it immediately. If you have a shop-vac, vacuum up the spill as soon as possible, if not, use a thick towel and stand on it until it absorbs as much of the liquid as possible. Then, pour some cool clean water on it, and repeat. Finally, treat it with CitruSolution® CitruSpotter: shake well, spray liberally, blot or wipe gently as needed, and repeat as needed.

Be aware that most store bought products are soapy or leave behind a slightly sticky residue, so you will need to rinse them out of the carpet with cool, clean water as well (use the shop-vac) to avoid getting a dirty spot attracted by that sticky residue.

If you suspect that the spill soaked into the padding, or your water did when you rinsed it, it’s likely a “dirty spot” will return because the dirty liquid in the padding will “wick” back to the surface of the carpet as it dries. This can usually be wiped up with a wet cloth.

I have always used Stanley Steamers for my carpet and furniture but decide to try CitruSoluction this time. Conner came out yesterday and cleaned my carpet, couch and loveseat. What a fine young man and hard worker he is. He did a great job and the carpet and furniture has looked the best it ever has. CitruSolution exceeded my expectations and I will use them for all my future carpet and furniture cleaning. Also, if you own a pet like I do with lot's of allergies it will not effect your pet since the solution they use is natural. I want to thank Stu the owner and Conner for a great job well done.

We had CitrusSolution Carpet Cleaning of Brevard clean our carpets at our new Condo in Cocoa Beach and Conner did a Fantastic Job. He arrived on time, was polite, explained exactly what he was going to do and went to work and made the carpets look brand new and the cleaning process left a wonderful citrus smell in the air. I would highly recommend this company for your carpet cleaning needs. FIVE STAR SERVICE. Susie R.

We had a very large oriental wool carpet that had never been professionally cleaned. Stu came and took the rug to his shop - worked his magic to clean and remove several years of ground-in dust and sand that no regular vacuum could ever touch. What a remarkable transformation! The colors are vibrant again and I dare say that it weighs at least 10 pounds lighter. CitruSolution Carpet Cleaning of Brevard provides a highly professional, efficient, and cost effective service. I highly recommend them.

I would highly recommend this company. A nice young man, Connor came to the house, he was very professional and got to work immediately. When he left you would never know he had been there except for a spotless carpet. I have a dog and had some bad spots on the carpet which he removed. I would use them again

We have 2 dogs and a toddler so carpets are a bit challenging. Loved their safe product and service! Our older carpets look so refreshed. Worked steady but quick enough and very thorough. Even gave a spray solution for upkeep. Stu and Connor are a great team. Highly recommend!

We had this company come out to clean our carpets at my works office. They did an amazing job. They come out first to give you the price of the cleaning. They showed up on time and the carpets look amazing! They even give you a bottle of the cleaner they use just in case you spill something later on.

Very pleased with the service provided to us by CitruSolution. Responsive to my initial inquiry, answered all of my questions and scheduled my upholstery cleaning promptly. On-site service was friendly and very thorough. I have never had someone clean all of my furniture by hand before! Would hire again and confidently recommend to others looking for a local, vet and family owned business.

After being in the Property Management business for over 16 years I have never experienced a better company and quality of work. I will no longer use another carpet company. I am amazed at what they can do. They bring the lie back into carpets that I thought were unsalvageable.

I'm not quite sure how I heard about this company but I was having a problem with carpet that is less than one year old having severe odor from some animal urine. I called and made an appointment and was given an estimate on the phone. The owner's son came out and was very timely very polite and very thorough. When he arrived I even added an extra area rug which he happily did for me at a reasonable rate. Also thank you for the military discount.we really appreciate it. I definitely would use this company again. My house has a fresh citrus smell to it now.

Thanks so much for the wonderful job on my classroom rugs! I love the smell and the fact that there are no chemicals on it that will harm my students! I really appreciate the bottle of solution for spot cleaning, which I'm sure will be needed after 20 students are utilizing the rugs throughout the year. The young man who came (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) was very friendly and professional. He is a good worker!! Thanks!

All the reviews are true!! Professional, Kind and Super Quick. The carpets look amazing and smell fantastic. 1 of the stains on that carpet had to be 15 years old. The boss was super impressed and we will have them coming back for additional office spaces. Outstanding work.

Very busy life required exact time, early AM show, show ready to get it done, and these guys fit this need perfectly! Wow! Prompt, clean, well dressed commercial cleaners of all carpet dirt, for house or office. I thought sections of carpet were needing to be replaced until Stu showed me the citrus cleaner they use with scrubbers and vacuums, buffers, and things that go "buzz-whirl", and they were done in great time with inspection. Highly recommend this crew, and company!! The smell is what I wish never ended.

100% satisfied. We had the carpet cleaned in our beachfront condo yesterday; it looks fantastic and feels clean. Friendly and professional company. The main thing that led me to try CitruSolution was that there are no hoses pulled through the home during the cleaning. Now that I've seen the whole process and the results, that is just one of the advantages. The carpet is really clean and dried extremely fast. I can't imagine ever going back to steaming or shampooing methods.

Used them for our office which had several coffee stains and dirty high traffic areas. The office looks like new and smelled good too. Did the work in a timely manner Impressed that the owner came to do the work. Professional crew was on time for work on Friday evening and Saturday morning Cleaned 8000 sq. ft. quickly and outside of business hours Office was put back in order - chairs, garbage cans and other items were moved, carpet cleaned and then put back in place Guaranteed the work. Came back without cost to deal with a few problem spots

Outstanding job, very professional and punctual. Stu did a great job on our carpets. He is very detail oriented and conscious. I like the fact that it is a Veteran owned business too. The smell of citrus is sweet too. We will have him back again as we highly recommend his service.

Love CitruSolutions! Professional and not overly expensive. Chris came out on time. We did a quick walk-through of my home and discussed the areas that I was worried about the most. He vacuumed everything before he even started, and again after he had finished cleaning all the carpet. After everything, he left me a bottle of their solution to spot clean when needed! My carpets look great and the entire house smells so good. Will be calling them again to keep our carpets looking good all the time. :)

Having owned this home for 15 years, I have had a number of carpet cleaners, but Stu is the only one I have invited back for a second time. He is head and shoulders above the rest. His system and his diligence resolved a pet staining issue caused by a very old, but much loved, Yorkie who had become incontinent. I thought it was beyond fixing but he did it. And if you get to know him, you will find his community involvement and ethics are just as sparkling and squeaky clean as his carpet cleaning. Thank, Stu for all you do.

Absolutely as good as it gets. Stu and his team are knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Two years in a row my small business has suffered water damage (resulting in stained, smelly carpet) due to hurricanes. Stu was able to fit me into his busy schedule, showed up on time as worked quickly leaving me with fresh, clean carpet that smells great and dried really fast. I have chemical sensitivities and their all-natural product causes me no ill effect. All around great service, great product, great experience. Thanks, Stu!
