Your carpets and other soft floor coverings are the one area in your home that fleas and their off spring will make a bee line for.
Used the borax on my carpets but left it for two days then vaccumed. Took apart my upright cleaner and washed all the filters and housing after. Was stunned to learn I had fleas when there was no animal in the house. Do we actually track flees in our homes ??
Hi Susan! It sounds like you also have a flea egg problem. Remember that while salt, DE and borax can kill both adult and baby fleas, it cannot reach those unhatched fleas which can often only appear much later. Before you use a flea bomb, I recommend placing the DE or borax on your carpets and then give it a good brush with a grass broom (or a hard bristled equivilant) so that the fleas become active and you have an improved chance at killing them. Good luck!

First off, find an area in a room; say behind the sofa that you could ask the cleaner to do a small test patch before he starts the main task. This way you can be confident that a good job will be done. It is most important that a thorough clean is carried out, followed by rigorous vacuuming. This involves moving all furniture out so no areas are overlooked. If any eggs or larvae survive your onslaught, it will only be a matter of time before they hatch and jump straight back on your pet. And the vicious cycle will start all over again.Your most effective weapon of choice should be your vacuum cleaner. Fleas hate vacuum cleaners and in the first instance try vacuuming each and every day; once you have everything under control every alternate day should suffice.Fleas and their off-spring are pretty adept at slipping the net, so take care to seal tightly all full vacuum bags until you can dispose of them properly off your property.
