Step 4: Flea Control/Prevention Tips
2. Fleas love the carpet so be sure to vacuum as often as you can since the previously applied steam cleaning can trigger any remaining eggs to hatch. Remember to dispose of vacuum bags immediately after use.
3. Provide a bedding for your pet that is easily removed and cleaned. Lay towels anywhere your pets like to lounge, and wash them all every week until the fleas are gone, and every two weeks after that.
4. Comb your pets daily with the special flea comb and record the number of fleas you find in the first 5-10 strokes so you can identify any surges in the population. Flick any fleas that are removed into soapy water to kill them and if a population spike occurs, bathe the pet.
