How to get rid of Fleas

When fleas find their host, they get to live on their host, and also  lay eggs .  Flea eggs can fall off the host and can get on other materials, such as beds, clothes, carpets.

You will need to find out if you are infested with flea eggs everywhere.  Below are the steps on how to get rid of fleas.
Things to do :

1. Make sure you if you hany pets, you should quarantine them.   keep them away from everything and everyone.

2. Take all the bed sheets, rugs and anything you think fleas could get on and wash them all with soapy water.  Soapy water kills fleas in general.
3.  Get your vacuum and clean your home.  Everything from furniture, carpets, cracks in the floor, bare floors, corners, behind doors, and anywhere else that dust collects. This will get rid of the eggs, but keep in mind, larvae will latch onto carpet fibers and stick around. After vacuuming, immediately get rid of the vacuum bag outside to prevent any more infestations.

4. Call your neighborhood steam -cleaner to come get your carpets.  You must inform the steam – cleaner why they need to clean your carpets.  Or you could shampoo the whole carpet with insecticidal carpet shampoo.   You could also call a pest control professional to apply some infrared heat treatment to the carpet which kills all stages of flea. Beware however, this type of infrared heat treatment can cost a lot.

5. Clean all areas where your pets are usually hanging out and resting.  Clean those areas with again, loads of soap and water the area down.  Just to make sure.
