We spray the carpets with a water-based insecticidal powder.
After we have sprayed:
- if possible go-out for one or two hours to allow the spray to dry
- do not sit on anything that has been sprayed until it has dried
- do not let children or pets, especially cats, on the carpets until they are dry
It will still seem as if you are infested for a while. This is because, even though the insecticide is killing fleas, more will be hatching-out. Flea eggs can take up to six weeks to hatch out in the home environment, so although you will find a lot fewer fleas after being treated, you can still expect to see some for several weeks.
To avoid re-infestation, try to avoid vacuuming for as long as possible after the treatment as the insecticide will be removed by doing this. We suggest you do not vacuum for ten days in order to allow the treatment to be effective. The member of staff will leave an information leaflet with you to explain this.
