- If you have dogs or cats, it is very important that they are treated with a quality flea control product before we arrive.

- Remove and wash any clothing, bedding, pet bedding, bed clothes and soft toys that may have been in the Immediate affected area. If washing of some Items is not possible, you may also put the items into sealed black plastic garbage bags and place them in the sun for the day, once the heat reaches over 50C all stages of the fleas’ life cycle will perish.
- Vacuum your carpets. Start at one end of the room and vacuum in strips until you have covered the entire carpet. Pay special attention to corners of the room and skirting boards using the nozzle attachment rather than the head of the cleaner.
- Fleas like to hide in dark humid areas so vacuum underneath furniture well.
- Vacuum any upholstered furniture paying particular attention to seams and folds, Fleas often jump on furniture, as do our pets.
- Empty your vacuum contents into a sealed plastic bag and bin it outside. If you have a bagless vacuum, put the canister into a sealed black plastic bag and leave it in the sun for the day to kill any fleas larvae or eggs that may have been collected in the unit.
