Health Tip: Keep Fleas Out of Your Home
Here's how

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If Fido or Fluffy have an unwelcome band of fleas on them, there are things you can do to control the problem.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency suggests:

  • Vacuum your home each day.
  • Steam clean carpets, especially places where pets sleep, to kill fleas and flea eggs.
  • Every two or three weeks, wash all family and pet bedding in hot, soapy water. Throw away and replace bedding if there's a severe infestation.
  • Brush pets with a flea comb, particularly around the neck and tail. Dip the comb and any fleas you find in a bowl of soapy, hot water
  • Keep pets indoors more often.
