Some of the next steps to take after flooding damages your home.
The woman behind the bar Is rude and cannot do her job right. She gave my husband and I attitude since we walked in. We are from another state and she asked what brought us here. When my husband said work she didn’t believe him right off the bat. After giving her our id’s, she threw them back at us and said nice try as if they were fake. First off, I am 30 and he is 29 so no need for a fake Id. Secondly, we are military so we could have shown her our military Ids as well but because she was so damn disrespectful we decided to take our money somewhere else. Our friends who were meeting up with us that night blew mad money at shamrock instead. Moral of the story... if the place is as crappy as the people, it’s a dump.
Really good tacos and everything is handmade and fresh. Service is good quick, have a lot of seating areas inside and outside. They also have a big selection of real fruit drinks. Definitely going back!
I would not buy from this company,I spend $2000 on multimedia navigation system,it lasted 39 months they told me they do not repair That I would have to buy a new one buyer beware Emery M
Service is awful! We didn't get all of our orders. We waited so long for the food. We asked for the bill and they bought beer instead!
I have been to citrus city grille several times with family, the service & food was wonderful. I have been there 3 times by myself and I guess you don't cater to single customers, because each visit got worse. The first time I went their in the evening & waited for a host/hostess for quit a while even though the bartender saw me waiting he couldn't call the host/hostess to let them know someone was waiting.The final straw was yesterday i walked in there about 3pm, the person at the hostess counter apparently wasn't the hostess and seemed baffled by 1 to be seated. Finally the hostess showed up and I asked to sit on the patio. I was seated at a table that was not at all ready for anyone to be seated, then I waited about 10 minutes for a server, she finally came out & I gave her not only my drink order (water with lemon) but my meal order also. A good 10 minutes went by before I received a glass of water (no lemon), between that time frame another waiter asked if I had been served, because there was literally nothing on the table. I told him I had been served, but my issue was 2 tables behind me someone was smoking, when I brought that to his attention he said that was okay because it was out on the patio. I was a little stunned by that, because I thought Dos Logos was smoke free environment, I actually saw a sign on the premises & I thought in California even on a patio at a restaurant you couldn't smoke, so I asked to move to another table. I never saw my server until she came out 2 times to tell me my meal is almost ready, the 2nd time I asked for some bread because I was waiting sooo long. She finally brought the bread with another server bringing my meal. The final straw was I had to ask for silverware to eat my meal.This was a very bad situation, although I love your food, I did drive from west covina, I don't think I will waste the gas, because it doesn't seem like you care about a single customer. Very disappointed.If you do care & want to contact me, via email "firstname.lastname@example.org"
THE WORST!!!!! I will never come back. The service is was outrageously horrible... I came to have a nice dinner and some dancing with my brother and sister-in-law for their birthday. We were very excited to be there for their celebration. Myself and the rest of the party left very disappointed how bad you were treated. First: the host was very nice it was her first night with citrus city Grill. She couldn't seat us until half our party showed up which was totally understandable. Since we had a party of 10 people. This was the only enjoyable experience we had. SAD TO SAY!!!!Second: The waiter was unbelievably terrible. I wish I can recall his name all I can remember was the way he smirked at us when we ordered because the majority of the party ordered appetizers and salads. He rudely explain to us that we cannot get into the dancing part of the restaurant and less we ordered a entrée. I told him it's fine we have no problem paying $10 than he basically laughed at me. I couldn't believe someone would make me feel as unwelcome as he did. Third: The manager "Bill" was so rude to my brother. We ended up staying for dancing because we were already there. My Brother complained to the manager Bill about the service we experienced and told him that he was going to leave a review on yelp the manager bill told him "go ahead" so he did. About 20 minutes later Bill came outside and yelled at my brother for leaving a bad review on yelp. I couldn't believe how unprofessional that was. Bill said if we had a problem we should call the owner Steve. Obviously Citrus City Grill/Owner Steve needs to make serious changes with the customer service of the staff. I hope the best for this place but I sure will not be coming back!!!

Mistakes happen, and when it comes to owning a carpet or rug, mistakes usually mean stains. The plush softness of carpet and rugs comes with a price: the time and care required to clean them. Cleaning your carpet or rugs can require some extra work and special techniques that differ from typical hardwood or tile floors. In some cases, you may even need to hire a professional to get the best results.
For minor stains or routine cleaning, it's possible to effectively treat a carpet or rug yourself. If a thorough vacuuming doesn't get rid of dirt in certain areas, here's how to tackle them on your own.
A number of liquids can stain carpet or rug materials, including wine, coffee, nail polish, or blood, to name a few. Depending on what caused the stain, the carpet or rug's material, and how long it's been there, you may need to use different techniques or cleaning supplies to get rid of it. In general, though, keep the following ground rules in mind for stain removal:
Take these steps to remove a stain as soon as possible to prevent drying.
Some stains may come out with little more than water or a mild soap. More serious stains may require a solvent to make removal easier. The best solvent to use depends on what caused the stain.
-Water-soluble stains: These include berries, cola, food dye, jelly, mud, washable ink, or wet paint. Mix a solution of 1/4-teaspoon nonbleach detergent (or white vinegar) with 32 ounces of water.
-Dark water-soluble stains: Chocolate, coffee, mustard, tea, wine, and bodily fluids often stain much more readily than other water-soluble materials and need a different solvent. Use 1 tablespoon of ammonia mixed in 1 cup of water first. If this doesn't work, try combining one part chlorine bleach with five parts water. These solvents may remove color from certain fabrics like wool, so check with the manufacturer for the best cleaning method.
-Oils and waxes: This would include glue, gum, nail polish, and cigarette residue. The best way to clean each of these varies - some may need to be simply scraped off or, if possible, frozen to make it brittle and then chipped away. Most glue can be dissolved and removed using a solvent like rubbing alcohol. Nail polish may also be dissolved using rubbing alcohol or with nail polish remover containing acetone.
Unfortunately, some stains may prove difficult to remove using household products. In any case, vacuuming and spot cleaning may not be enough to get your carpet or rug looking like new again. That's why many homeowners opt to hire a professional carpet cleaning service on a regular basis, around once every 12 to 18 months.
When it comes to heavy-duty carpet cleaning, you have many options to pick from. The two most common methods for cleaning carpets are steam cleaning and dry cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a common method for professional carpet cleaning, but the name is somewhat misleading. Steam-cleaning services use machines that utilize hot (but not boiling) water in combination with a vacuum. The water is heated inside the machine and sometimes mixed with detergent before being sprayed directly onto the carpet. At the same time, a vacuum sucks up the water almost immediately after hitting the fabric. The hot water extracts far more dirt and stains than would be possible by hand.
Cleaning machines using hot water extraction can be purchased or rented for home use, but they aren't always as powerful as what professional cleaning services use. Improperly drying the carpet may also cause bacteria or mold growth. Professional cleaners also employ a number of other methods to pre-treat the carpet and ensure adequate drying. For these reasons, professional carpet cleaning may be preferable to do-it-yourself methods.
Carpets or rugs can also be thoroughly cleaned using a dry-cleaning method. As the name suggests, there is much less water involved in dry cleaning, which means the carpet can be ready to use in less time. Using powerful solvents to break down dirt and stains, dry cleaning puts less physical stress on the carpet, and thus might be better in the long run. However, dry cleaning is usually more expensive than hot-water cleaning services. In addition, the chemicals used to dry clean carpets might irritate pets, people with sensitive skin, or anyone sensitive to strong odors.
Before choosing a professional carpet cleaning service, make sure you will be getting what you paid for by asking the right questions and doing your homework.
Again, there are pros and cons involved in using a hot-water-based cleaning service or dry cleaning. Take into consideration not only cost, but how long the process will take from start to finish, including drying time. Also take note of the material your carpet is made from, and consult the manufacturer if possible to learn about the best ways to clean it. If you or your family is sensitive to any chemicals, be sure to keep this in mind and ask about what chemicals are used.
You can find reviews of most professional carpet-cleaning services online, as well as information about a company's specific process, the chemicals used, and cost. It's also wise to ask friends and family members about services they've used in the past to get a recommendation. Don't always go with the service offering the lowest price, or hire a service who advertises door-to-door or over the phone, unless you have done thorough research on them.
Carpet cleaning services will be entering your home, potentially while you aren't there, so you want to feel comfortable with the business you trust with this responsibility. Ask if the company conducts background checks on employees, as well as if they are insured in your state. Without liability insurance, a mistake that results in damage to your home or furniture may be your responsibility to pay for.
If you've found a carpet-cleaning service you can trust, ask to get a quote. This may involve specifying exactly what services you would like performed, as well as the size of your home's carpeted area. Make sure you understand exactly what is included in a quoted price. Some businesses may charge extra to move furniture, clean stairs, or use special treatment methods. It's also common for businesses to sell customers on products and services they don't need. Don't hesitate to ask questions if any detail about the quote is unclear.
If you instead want to rent or buy a carpet-cleaning machine to use yourself, you have many options to pick from.
Since heavy-duty carpet cleaning isn't a frequent activity for most homeowners, many choose to simply rent one of these machines. Of course, renting is usually much cheaper than owning a machine or hiring a service, which is the biggest advantage in this situation. But not all rental units perform equally, and some might require extra drying time or the use of special solvents that will cost more. There's also the time and effort that goes into carpet cleaning - renting a unit means you must also move furniture yourself and pay close attention to ensure you're operating the unit correctly. Making a mistake could mean damaging your carpet or the unit itself. Also, improperly drying carpet could allow harmful bacteria and mold to grow. Before renting a carpet cleaner, make sure you're up for the task at hand.
Homeowners can purchase carpet cleaners ranging from compact units to full-size industrial-strength machines. Besides price, take note of the features of a unit and compare them to what you most need from a carpet cleaner. Some models specialize in removing allergens from pet hair, while others may work better on tough stains, for example. Another key consideration: Make sure you have room for it. Some carpet cleaners can be bulky and require ample storage space.
Other features you may want to look for in a cleaning unit include:
Make the right choice in carpet cleaners by considering all the options available to you and how they fit into your needs and budget.
