Once your dog or cat brings fleas into the house, it can be challenging to get rid of them. Fleas on your pet might be picked up from the outdoors or other animals. It is necessary to treat the house, the pets, and the yard (if appropriate) all at once, whether you try to get rid of them yourself or hire a professional service.

In the case that you have decided to hire a pest control company, there are things you can do to get ready. Professional pest control operators will typically present you with a detailed checklist of things to do in advance of their arrival before doing this or any other service. We've compiled a list of valuable tips to ensure that you and your house are ready for treatment.


Pet Bedding
Give all pet bedding a hot wash, or toss it out. Ensure your pest control expert knows all the indoor and outdoor spots where your dogs like to hang out. Toss in the washing machine with hot water all the sheets on beds where the dogs have been lounging.

Cleaning 
Clean the carpets, hardwoods, and tiles thoroughly, including the edges and inside of cabinets. Move the furniture outside and give it an excellent sweeping or vacuuming, paying careful attention to the crevices between the cushions and the base.

Take Caution On Vacuums
Secure the vacuum bag before throwing it away in a public trash can. Take the vacuum outdoors, remove the canister if it is reusable, and pour the contents into a container that can be sealed before being thrown away. Warm water is fine for washing the reusable container.

Visit The Veterinarian
The best action is to get rid of the animals and have the vet treat them for fleas. If you treat the animal yourself, read and strictly adhere to all label instructions and use only products intended for the animal in question. However, pets must be treated at the same time as the home to prevent reinfestation.

Objects That Might Interfere
All pet and kid toys, food dishes, and other objects left around the house or yard should be picked up before cleaning the outside. This includes cleaning the flooring of outdoor pet homes and the contents of closets and beneath beds.

Food Should Be Covered
Any dishes or food items that have been left exposed should be covered and put away before service begins. It will be contaminated if left open.

Other Pets
Before we begin any work, and for the waiting time outlined below, please ensure that all caged animals (birds, reptiles, hamsters, etc.) have been removed from your home.

During The Extermination
Everyone living in the house, including dogs, must find alternative accommodations for the next four hours after the treatment. Depending on the treatment, drying time might range from four hours to five. At this time, keeping children and pets away from the treated areas is crucial.
