Basic Flea Control

Fleas get everywhere and in terms of running a store, we know that pets are the most common cause. Having had fleas infest a number of different garments, we know that basic control does not involve bombing the store and letting god sort them out. Because we deal with delicate clothes, we understand that a more delicate approach needs to be taken before you resort to flea bombs. We start by cleaning the entire store top to bottom and laundering every piece of upholstery.

What a lot of people do not know is that fleas often hide in clothing and upholstery and lay their eggs there. Now this may sound like basicĀ home remedies to get rid of fleas, but simply cleaning these things using hot water or steam because the eggs and the fleas cannot survive very high temperatures, will kill most of them no problem. In most cases if you just clean a few things with really hot water, the fleas will be done for.
