How to prepare your house for a flea exterminator

If you are thinking of hiring a professional to exterminate your home of fleas, there are a few things you can do to make the process go smoother. First and foremost, make sure all potential hiding spots for fleas are sealed off. Remove all furniture and rugs that could conceivably contain fleas, and vacuum all floors thoroughly. Seal any cracks and crevices in the walls and ceilings with caulk or silicone sealant. Finally, have all pet animals brought in for inspection and treatment if necessary.

When the exterminator arrives, have all windows and doors open, and let them know which rooms you wish to treat. They will use a variety of methods to kill fleas, including pesticides and heat. Be prepared to answer any questions the exterminator may have, and be sure to stay calm and relax while the process is taking place.
