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

I had my carpets cleaned by a different CitruSolution in NC years ago. I purchased a product from them and just recently ran out. That franchise is no longer in business so I did a google search and found this CitruSolution. I spoke with Diego and he was very helpful in shipping me the product that I needed, although this is not common practice. Thanks for the help CitruSolution!

Diego and his assistant did a great job for us today. They cleaned the carpets in 4 rooms and also cleaned a large sofa, love seat and 2 recliners for us. They were professional and the difference is amazing. We will definitely be regular customers of CitruSolutions and will refer our friends to them!

They did an amazing job. My carpets are super old and had stains that had been there for years but they are gone now. Definitely going to be a returning customer and I’ll be referring people to them!

CitruSolutions recently cleaned all the carpeted areas in my workplace. Diego was personable, professional and a pleasure to work with. And most importantly, our carpets look really good!

Diego at Citrus Solution went above and beyond. We had a quick turnaround for a Senior Living move, and my parents couch and chairs needed to be cleaned before it. Not only did he show up for a tight schedule, but he spent more time on them than expected in order to make sure the job was done well. Thank you to Citrus Solution!

Diego went above and beyond moving furniture and scrubbing a stain with his hands. Highly recommend.
