Those red marks on your legs and stomach are not a good sign. That annoying black speck of evil that is hopping around your house, procreating at will, and sucking on your blood needs to die, and you are determined to eliminate it. Unfortunately that cute adorable house pet you own was the culprit in this situation, bringing that terrible parasite into your house and now you have a full blown infestation. So what do you do?
There are so many carpets in your house and walking on them is now a death trap. The fleas are everywhere and unfortunately for you; your wallet is not as deep as you would hope it would be. Treating your lovable, pest harboring animal is already going to cost you, and thinking about the cost of a hiring a professional to come take care of the house infestation makes you nauseous. So you need an alternative.
Carpet shampoo for flea control is one of the best methods to treat an infestation in a heavily carpeted house, and one of the cheapest. So you can’t afford expensive foggers and professional exterminators, that does not mean you need to live with this horrible blood sucker. In fact carpet shampoo is a preferred method for those with a tight wallet. It is completely free of those dangerous chemicals that can harm your beloved pets. Its specific target is fleas of all life stages and will not hurt anything else, including your carpet itself. In fact the shampoo can also serve to help you remove all of those unsightly stains left by animals from things such as; urine, feces, vomit, and any other presents that they chose to leave on the floor for you.
Another great thing about the carpet shampoo is that you can use it not just for carpet. Fleas get in any tiny crack, crevice, or space that they can, meaning that if they are in your carpet, you can bet they will be on any other cloth material including bedding, upholstery, clothing, concrete, bricks, and anything else you can find. Flea shampoo can clean all of those, and should be used to do so.
Flea infestations can become out of control in a matter of days. The cheapest methods can be effective but you need to stay vigilant. If you did not completely eradicate all of the fleas the first time, they will come back. Preventative measures need to be taken at all times to keep those critters out of your house. If a first washing did not do a sufficient job, it may be necessary to wash your carpets and floors several times with flea control shampoo to kill fleas of all stages.
Also make sure to consult your vet on the best method for treating your animals. If you fail to fix the source of the issue, then the fleas will never truly leave your home.
