  1. Keep your home clean. I know that you clean your house regardless of the presence of fleas, but this is just a reminder of how important cleaning your house really is. Pests problems can be avoided simply by just cleaning your house. Vacuum your carpets, rugs, and furniture regularly. Sweep the tiles and wooden floors.  Before you vacuum, set it to its most powerful setting and then put the brush at maximum. After vacuuming, empty the contents into a bag.
  2. Throw away the bag that may contain flea pupae.  
  3. Wash your pet’s bed every week. Bedding should be washed with hot, soapy water to kill fleas, and if your pets sleep on your bed, wash your bedding too.
  4. Use a flea comb. A flea comb with tiny teeth can remove the fleas from your dog or cat. Make sure to do this outside the house. Make sure to bring with you a cup of soapy water wherein you can dip the flea comb. This will drown the fleas.
  5. You may also use some flea home remedies. One is the use of baking soda. Spread some baking soda on your carpet and furniture, use a hard brush and then rub it into the fabric. Then you can vacuum your home thoroughly. Or you may use salt as a natural remedy. Sprinkle some salt on your carpet and leave it there for 1 to 2 days. After that, you can vacuum thoroughly.

After trying all these remedies and you still find the infestation too much of a problem, then it is time to call Go- Forth Pest Control.
