The war between people, pets, and fleas will always wage on. Nearly every pet owner in the U.S. has had a run in with fleas. Typically fleas make their way into our homes via the family pets, and that’s the time to turn to professional flea control.

Difficult flea infestations can thrive overnight. This is why having professional flea treatment as soon as you notice a problem is so important. Here we are going to look at how to treat fleas and when it’s time to turn to expert flea control.

What To Do If You Think You Have A Flea Control Problem
Fleas are not always easily controlled with over the counter flea control products. If you have a very persistent problem with fleas, it’s better to seek out professional flea treatment from an expert.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to alleviate the problem. Treating your pets with a vet-approved flea control product is step one. You then need to vacuum your whole home, washing all the linens and remember to clean the pet beds too.

When To Get Professional Flea Treatment 
If over the counter products have failed you, it’s time to turn to a professional flea treatment performed by a licensed pest control professional. During the treatment, you will leave your home for a few hours while the technician uses a product that is suited to your lifestyle and home. The ingredients in these treatments help to control the fleas and also help to break the reproductive life cycle.

Professional flea treatment usually results in an immediate reduction in the number of fleas in your home. Within 7 to 14 days, all of the fleas should be gone. Daily vacuuming will be needed after the treatment to rid your home of flea eggs and dead fleas that will be in your carpet.
