There are many pests that can conceal them in the carpet fibers in your home; dust mites, carpet beetles, silverfish, roaches, bed bugs, and during the summer pets bring in fleas and ticks among others. In conjunction with your efforts, we at Carpet Care 2000 would like to share why steam carpet cleaning can help eliminate beetles and other pests from your carpet.
Steam Cleaning Kills Fleas & Ticks
Fleas especially and ticks are active in the summer. Pets are often the responsible party for bringing them inside. Most homeowners experience fleas inside the home at least in their life. By the time you realize your pet is enduring fleas, they have likely spread their eggs throughout the whole house. Not only are the fleas hard to eliminate, but the eggs are more challenging. Chemical pesticides may be solution, but when it comes to carpets, steam cleaning is a safer method. No matter what stage of their lifecycle, fleas are effectively neutralized. This option offers chemical-free solutions on your carpets. Steam cleaning wipes out the flea infestation from egg to adults from the carpets where it can be otherwise difficult to ensure thorough treatment. Steam cleaning is more powerful than vacuuming alone and has the ability to rid your carpets of fleas and most other pests. In addition to a more powerful extraction, fleas cannot handle the lethal temperatures that the steam carpet cleaning produces. Unlike chemical treatments, steam cleaning is non-toxic, and is easier on your carpets as well as safer for children and pets. In addition to eradicating fleas, ticks, and their eggs, your carpets are deep cleaned removing the soil and debris as well as any spots, stains, and odors. Treating your carpets to a steam clean to remove a flea and tick infestation has additional benefits.
Vacuum to Get Rid of Fleas & Ticks

Following a very thorough vacuuming, using a grid system, overlapping the lanes, and vacuuming in multiple directions, the edges and corners need to be vacuumed well the vacuum hose. Additionally, the areas your pet sleeps and wanders through should also be treated including any pet beds, furniture, beds, and so on.
