Q: How can I control fleas in my home?

A: If you have carpet, vacuum regularly with that rotary brush or beater bar. It’s highly effective at reducing flea populations in homes. Wash your pet’s bedding weekly to break the life cycle. Steam cleaning carpets can reduce the problem as well. If you have hardwood floors, damp mop with detergent on a weekly basis.
