Top Quality Exterminating's Residential Flea Treatment Preparation Instructions

Fleas are very difficult to exterminate without the help of the consumer. Top Quality Exterminating has developed a special checklist for our Long Island and Queens, NY customers to complete during and after our flea treatment process. With over 24 years of pest control experience this checklist, when followed, has the capability of not only making our treatments faster and more effective, but also reduces the overall cost to our customers.

Please review this checklist and complete the tasks in the order indicated for your flea treatment to take full effect. Please keep in mind that succeeding in the elimination of he fleas in and around your home will be a team effort and completing this checklist will go a long way towards accomplishing that task.

Flea Preparation Tasks To Complete Prior To Top Quality Exterminating's Arrival:

  • Clear all carpeted floors – including closets – of boxes, clothing and any other items that will prevent treatment.
  • Wash (in hot water) or destroy all pet bedding. Bedding that is put in the trash should be put in a sealable plastic bag and disposed in an exterior trash can.
  • Mop all wood, tile and vinyl floors.
