Preventing Fleas in the Home
It’s easier to keep fleas out of your home than it is to get rid of them. Fleas can live in carpets, bedding, and other surfaces in the home where pets frequent. To prevent an infestation:
- Sweep or vacuum well and often. Vacuum your carpets and rugs as well as cushions on chairs and sofas. Be sure to empty the vacuum bag outside when finished.
- Clean bedding, especially pet bedding, frequently with soap and water.
