How To Tell If You Have Fleas In Your Furniture
Fleas are not only a problem that is restricted to cats and dogs. They can also affect humans. If your pets have fleas, these fleas will soon migrate into your home. Even if your pets are kept outside most of the time. One of the biggest problems with this is when you have fleas in furniture. But how do you know if this is really the case, or if you’re dealing with another problem? To help you out, here are a few ways to know if there are fleas in your furniture.

Why do fleas live in furniture?

 Fleas enjoy living in places which are similar to an animal’s fur. This is why you often find them in places like carpets, your bed and in other furniture. The issue with fleas in furniture is that these biting insects are extremely small.

This means they can penetrate deep into things like your sofa. They are able to reach into the creases and base of the furniture and get to places where you cannot reach. This makes getting rid of them an extremely tough job.
So how do you know if there are fleas in furniture, or seating around your home? The most obvious thing is if you’re getting bitten. Some people confuse bed bug bites and flea bites, but if you get bitten every time you sit down, then you could have fleas. These bites will mostly occur on your ankles. They will also often be in a straight line.

What should you do if you have suspect fleas in the furniture?

 The thing to do then is to inspect your sofa thoroughly. Remove all cushions and covers. Tilt the sofa and shake it, if this is safe and possible. Although fleas are small, they can be seen with the naked eye. When doing this you may see them jumping about. What you should also do is wash all covers and vacuum your furniture. This might help.

If none of this works, then the best thing to do is get professional flea control with heat treatments. With this method, you can easily solve the problem of fleas in furniture. How this method works is simple. Fleas are not invincible and cannot survive extreme temperatures. The heat treatment machine basically heats up the room to the point where the fleas can no longer survive.
This is the fastest and easiest way to get rid of these pests. The best thing about this treatment is that it kills the fleas along with their eggs and larvae. This method is also free of all chemicals and pesticides. That’s really the nice thing about it. You won’t have to sit on furniture which has been treated with dangerous chemicals.
