A monthly jamboree featuring more than 300 vendors, the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival is an eclectic bazaar of both modern miscellany and well-worn curiosities.

Ian and Ann Marie Kelley, owners of CitruSolution Carpet Cleaning, and their technicians purge carpets and upholstery with a dry cleaning fluid process that removes residues, odors, and dirt. After they extract loose particles with a Lindhaus vacuum, they don a 5-gallon backpack sprayer full of their exclusive citrus-based solution that they distribute over carpets in a fine mist. This concoction utilizes the cleaning powers of lemon, orange, and grapefruit to repel stains without harming children or pets. Once rugs have been thoroughly doused, they use a Dirt Napper system to scrub carpets and capture ground-in debris. They finish by vacuuming a second time to dry out the moistened fibers and prevent odors from forming.
For more than 30 years, the licensed and insured technicians at Tint King have been covering windows with tinted film to help homes and cars fight the negative effects of sunlight.
