How to Get Rid Of Fleas In My House

Have you found fleas in your home? You may be asking yourself, how can i get rid of fleas in my house?

If you are a pet owner then you know that fleas are always a possibility. Fleas are sneaky little critters that can take over your entire home before you even realize that they are in your home or on your pet.

When you first see fleas and you have pets, you should check them immediately to make sure that they are not completely infested with fleas. This could cause them health problems.

You can follow the the steps below to get the fleas out of your home and to keep them out!

1st: As I said before, check your pets for fleas immediately if you have seen fleas in your home. If you see fleas on your pet, then you can be pretty confident thinking that they are probably what brought the fleas into your home, from outside.

You will need to treat your pet for fleas before moving on to the rest of your home. Your pet will spread the flea eggs throughout your home, allowing the fleas to continue reproducing.

2nd: You should use an in home flea fogger. The flea fogger will reach all the areas of your home that are not visible to the eye and were you can't reach with a vacuum.

The flea fogger reaches all of those spots that the fleas like to hide. A flea egg is the size of a grain of salt, just imagine all the places that it could hide and you wouldn't see!

3rd: After the flea fogger you will need to thoroughly vacuum your home. You will need to move furniture to get under it, it doesn't matter if you have carpeting or hardwood floors, you'll still need to vacuum your floors.

When you vacuum all of your floors, essentially your sucking up any flea dirt, or flea droppings, eggs, larvae and pupae stages of the flea life cycle. The flea bomb should have killed these stages of the flea cycle but you still need to get them out of your house.

4th: You need to wash all blankets and and animal beds that your pets have been in contact with. Wash them in hot water and dry everything on the highest heat setting that is safe for your blankets and bedding. If your pets bed isn't washable you can either steam clean it or throw it out.

5th: Vacuum all of your furniture or steam clean it. The fleas life cycle stages can hide right down into the foam inserts of cushions, so be thorough.

6th: The fleas came into your house from somewhere, most likely your yard. The next step you need to do is to treat the outside of your home for fleas with an outdoor flea spray.

There are many varieties to choose from, just make sure that the label states that it will kill fleas!

After you've completed the steps above your home should be completely flea free. Be sure to continue vacuuming every day for the a couple of weeks. You also may need to retreat your pet for the fleas. It's always possible to have a few stray fleas get away.
