Carpet Cleaning: Can I get rid of fleas by cleaning my carpet?

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Will cleaning my carpet get rid of the fleas? Running a carpet cleaning business for over 20 years, I get this question asked a lot and the answer is usually no.

When dealing with a flea infestation, we recommend having a pest exterminator determine the best treatment for killing flees.

Once the fleas are killed than a professional carpet steam cleaning would help remove the dead fleas and eggs. If you have other textiles in the home such as upholstery, drapes, and pet bedding a good upholstery cleaning is recommended as well.

Having your carpet and upholstery cleaned using a steam cleaning process will flush out any dirt, contaminants and dead fleas and remove them from your home.
