Steps to Remove Fleas in the Home

Steps to Remove Fleas in the Home

Fleas can be very annoying pests to have in your home. They are microscopically small but can cause a lot of trouble for you, your pet, and the entire household. Fleas are tiny parasitic insects that feed off mostly pets for their blood. Animals who have these pesky fleas can go through some behavioural changes depending on how bad the infestation is.

Pets can be very restless, irritated, and can scratch themselves too much if the itch keeps persisting. For pets, it is recommended to take the animal to a specialist, or you can remove the fleas yourself by running through the dog’s or cat’s fur with special pet shampoo and with a comb that has its teeth close to each other. But what are the other ways to remove fleas from your house entirely?

If you suspect a flea infestation, contact the professionals from Exterminator Peterborough for affordable and quick flea control.


Believe it or not, the old trusty vacuum helps a great deal with keeping your floors clean and keeping fleas away! Fleas hide in cracks and crevices. By vacuuming regularly, you will suck out the adult fleas and flea eggs from the floor, the carpet, and other surfaces they regularly hide in. It’s a benefit that kills two birds with one stone. It gets rid of fleas and keeps your floor clean!

Clean Your Pets’ Bedding and Yours!

We all have pets that use our bed as theirs. Sometimes people just can’t get around it and they just spend the entire night. You wouldn’t know if your pets are infested so you wouldn’t know if your bed is a nest now. As a precaution, run your bedding through the hottest temperature possible. Fleas can’t withstand high temperatures and will kill them. Make sure to put your pets’ bedding also in the washing machine. Preferably these are all done at a laundromat since the risk of reinfestation can be big.

Use Natural Products

Natural products can be a very good alternative but can have varying results based on how and where they are applied. Some great natural products are :

  • Salt
  • Vinegar
  • Baking Soda
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
