Fleas in your home are an almost unavoidable reality if you have pets in the home. The two go together whether we like them or not. You can perform all sorts of methods to keep your pets free from ticks and fleas. But you may not be able to stop the pests from entering your home. If that does happen, no need to panic.
Having fleas in carpets, upholstery, or anywhere else in your home isn't just annoying, it's dangerous. Dealing with flea bites is bad enough, but these tiny insects can also transfer a number of diseases to your family. The quicker you can spot and get rid of fleas in your home, the safer and happier you, your family, and your pets will be.
There are some steps you can take to get rid of fleas once they appear and before they cause you any problems. The first step is to treat your pets with a powerful flea back or flea treatment. This stops the problem at its source, but it won’t remove the problem completely. You still have to contend with the fleas that are still in your home. Most of those are going to settle into the carpet, just waiting to latch onto any passing pets or people.
The best way to eliminate the remaining fleas is to have your carpet thoroughly cleaned by a professional. At Reviive, we offer the best in flea removal from carpets.
