Flea Treatment

Flea treatments – Customer Information

Before we arrive:

  • All pets & people must be out of house for at least four hours after we complete our work.
  • Put all bed and crib sheets in washing machine and run it.  We will not be treating mattresses but this will get rid of any fleas in the sheets.  Blankets/bedspreads can be piled on top of the beds (not hanging down sides of beds).
  • Pick everything up off of floor (including things such as clothing, toys, pet food &  water bowls, books, magazines, boxes, trash baskets…).  Best results will be achieved if we can access as much floor area as possible.
  • Have everything off of stuffed furniture such as couches & chairs.
  • We need to treat the entire house/apartment so we don’t end up just “chasing” the fleas to another part of the home.

 

Things for you to be aware of:

  • As we complete our work in each room, we will open windows to ventilate the rooms. (So please turn down heat or air conditioning).
  • If you have ceiling fans, we will turn them on to help ventilate the rooms.
    • If you have other fans, just leave them out & we will turn them on before we leave.

 

When you come back home:

Allow at least four hours for the materials we use to dry.  When you want to re-enter your home, do the “paper towel” test.  That is, put a paper towel on the carpet, step on it.  If it is wet, leave and wait to re-enter the house.  When the paper towel does not get wet when stepped on, you can come in & use the house as usual. Pets should be treated for flea control, and any bedding or soft toys washed regularly.

 

Expectations:

The fleas will not be gone right after our treatment.  There will be a reduction in fleas immediately but it will take 21-28 days for elimination of all fleas.  A second follow-up treatment will be made 21-28 days after the initial treatment to guarantee all fleas are eliminated.

 

After we are done:

Vacuum all carpets daily for 21 days. This stimulates egg hatching and will provide better and faster results. It seems like a lot of work but it really helps.
