How to Get Rid of Fleas in Carpet
May 14, 2013
Were you aware that there is a “flea season” in Fresno? Mid March to mid November is considered the standard season for fleas. However some states, like California, are lucky enough to have milder climates that can extend flea season in such a way that it never ends. If you happen to live here and are unfortunate enough to have been infested by fleas, then you could be in for a very long battle.
There’s no shame in it. We love our pets and pets attract fleas. Waiting too long to do something about Fido’s little itch is where we, as pet owners, can get into trouble. Eventually, those fleas produce more fleas.
Carpeting is a perfect environment for fleas. It is warm, dark, and often just a bit moist. Once embedded in carpeting, flea eggs and larvae can be extremely difficult to kill. Flea larvae can exist and grow in carpets without being fed. The life cycle of the flea keeps them continually appearing, and appearing, and appearing again.
When it comes to ridding your home of lfleas, there are various options for you to choose from. Solutions range from bug bombs to natural powders to daily vacuuming maintenance. Of course we here at Aaron’s Quality Cleaners have our own means of ridding your carpet of fleas. Due to our high-powered equipment and deep suctioning tools, we can remove fleas, eggs and larvae all in one fell swoop.
Because our equipment is truck-mounted, we are able to heat our water up to 240 degrees. That is hot enough to kill anything living, or even just breeding, in your carpet. Then we bring in the big gun in the form of our Rotary Extractor. This powerful machine swipes the carpet 650 times per minute with specially made carpet paddles. Then, as if this wasn’t already enough, we extract it all back out into the holding tank in the van. Goodbye fleas.
So, de-flea your cuddly pet and then give a call to the best carpet cleaner in Fresno. Not only will you be happy to have those little buggers gone, but you may, once again, feel fortunate to live in such a nice climate.
