Will carpet cleaning kill fleas?

Ctenocephalides felis

I had a client ask me if carpet cleaning will kill fleas.  Well, you can find out more about it here. Unfortunately, the answer is NO!  Citrusolution carpet cleaning reduces dust mites and allergens but will not kill fleas.  Even steam cleaning will not get rid of the fleas!  You will need a pest control company to treat your home.  Ed Whiting with BW Pest Solutions suggests the following to clean your carpet and get rid of fleas:

  1. 1) Vacuum your carpets extremely well
  2. 2) Have Citrusolution clean your carpets since we scrub your carpets and then vacuum clean your carpet
  3. 3) Then refer to this website and have BW Pest Solution treat your carpet for fleas.

Vacuuming is important to remove the fleas and to stir up the larva.  Citrusolution carpet cleaning agitates the fleas and larva with the scrubbing and the vacuuming sucks them up.  Then the last step is to treat the carpet for fleas.  You want this treatment to stay in carpet for a while to make sure the larva die.   A reliable pest control company in Richmond, VA that I would highly recommend is: Ed Whiting at  BW Pest Solutions at 804.901.1218

Heard this company through the grapevine and thought I give it a shot. Only have room with a rug but my Ex had cats. And this service did wonders. I can finally keep the door open without the smell coming in and down the hall.
