With spring and summer weather comes all types of pests, from those emerging from hibernation to those who thrive in warm weather. And some of them end up where they don't belong: In your home.

The flea is one pest that tends to stick around when it invades your home. The world has some 2,000 types of fleas, and they are found virtually everywhere. And when you spot one, you might notice how fast they increase. They are said to have an acceleration rate some 50 times faster in warm weather, and they can jump more than a foot in the distance. These flea species are most common in the Bay Area.
Fleas live by consuming blood as their main meal. If you have a dog or cat, which is a flea's best friend and food source, and your pets go outside, odds are you will face a flea in your home from time to time. And even if you have no pets, they can attach to you when you venture outside and come back in.

Professional carpet cleaning is one of the quickest and most efficient ways to eradicate a flea infestation without using pesticides. KMC Cleaners & Restoring Services use hot water extraction "Steam Cleaning" with the "MOST POWERFUL" truck mount equipment in the carpet cleaning industry. Our cleaning unit with Salsa Heat Booster delivers the highest heat of 235-degree solution temperature and 400 psi hot water for the most thorough deep cleaning and sanitizing of your carpets and upholstery furniture to destroy the flea life cycle.
Why Do Fleas Infest Carpet?
Fleas are tiny, parasitic pests that typically feed on common domestic pets like dogs and cats. Fleas have only two goals during their lifespan: to feed and reproduce. They feed by sticking a small beak into the skin of their host and extracting blood; this is similar to how mosquitoes and bed bugs feed.
Fleas are not initially attracted to a house, and human blood is not their preferred blood; however, fleas will bite humans. Fleas typically make their way into a house via your pets. Once inside, fleas living on your pets may decide to branch out into the home, and carpets are considered perfect spots for the deposit of flea eggs.
Once flea eggs hatch inside the carpet, an endless flea life cycle will play out right inside your home, with you and your pets providing the food for an entire colony of fleas. You must remove fleas as soon as you notice a problem because the longer the infestation remains, the more difficult it will become to remove it.
Fleas do not seek out carpets when inside of a home. Instead, the fleas will typically spend all their time living on your pets' fur. Fleas lay upward of 4050 eggs per day, with the eggs hatching in as little as a few days. Once the eggs have hatched, adult fleas will prefer to hide the larvae that emerge from the eggs. Adult fleas are attracted to the tiny spaces between carpet and upholstery fibers, making a perfect gestating ground for flea larvae during the weeks-long development process.

Does Vacuuming Carpet Get Rid of Fleas?
You can use a vacuum to eliminate fleas on the carpet's surface, but vacuum cleaners do not kill the fleas; the vacuum removes some of the insects. To kill fleas on the carpet, you will need something more potent than the suction of a vacuum. Professional hot water/steam cleaning extraction is the best method to take.
There are many ways to kill fleas infestations, but you have to kill the entire colony to eradicate the problem.

Can Fleas Survive in Carpet?
If not properly treated, these insects can survive on the carpet in a continuous cycle that can span many flea generations.
