How to get rid of fleas in the house was written by Elizabeth on another website. Enjoy, JaCi .

Little is worse than showing a house to prospective buyers and discovering dozens of fleas jumping on you and your clients. I know, because I’ve been there. Even vacant homes can harbor fleas. Fleas live in the carpet and furniture, which means if you vacuum them up, they will still hatch from eggs. Fleas can multiply like crazy almost overnight, and before you know it, you’ve got a full-blown flea infestation.

In most parts of the country, spring and summer provide breeding grounds for fleas, but fleas can live through almost any season if it’s warm enough. You can bring back fleas from the beach on a sandy towel — you don’t have to own pets to get fleas in the house, although fleas thrive on pets. So, if you notice unusual scratching, your pets could have fleas and should be immediately checked.  Because by the time you spot them on you, you may need to treat the entire house.

Before you put your own home on the market, make sure the interior is flea free and that you’ve eradicated any signs of fleas.
