Flea and Dust Mite Removal

Removing Those Critters You Can’t See

Dust Mite Removal

 Dust Mites are a tiny microscopic organisms that live in your home, within the carpets.  Now, this is problem regardless, but the main issue with dust mites is the fact they leave their waste products imbedded within the carpets, upholstery, curtains, sofas, anything with a fabric like material.  They will thrive on shed skin from humans meanwhile enjoying warm conditions which means, they enjoy living in our homes.  The waste products produced can cause allergic reactions even asthma, so If you regularly find yourself sneezing, coughing or maybe you have a runny nose often, you could have a dust mite infestation.


Fortunately though Carpet Local is trained in the arts of dust mite removal; we have our powerful high tech, hot water extraction, carpet cleaning unit, also know as a “steam cleaner”, which is able to kill, and extract dust mites effectively from your carpets, this will drastically reduce the symptoms you suffer due to the dust mites existence.  Once we have fulfilled the extraction process we do recommend that you regularly vacuum your carpets to prevent a return of the mites.


Flea Removal

If you’re the owner of pets, such as cats and dogs then you will be fully aware already of the implications they bring along with them, the main form being fleas.  Fleas once established in your home are extremely difficult to remove due to their life cycle, they breed extremely re sizedfast while growing rapidly once hatched.  Most fleas live for a month but some can live as long as several months, during this life span they will go from being an egg, to a lava, then becoming a pupa and eventually a fully formed flea, at this point, if the flea is female, it will reproduce up to 25 eggs per day!  This is the reason they’re so hard to get rid of.  To put this in perspective, 25 adult fleas, can reproduce up to a quarter of a million in a very short space of time!   Unfortunately fleas do carry with them bacteria meaning they can pass on to the home owners diseases such as tapeworms, typhus plus more!

Here at Carpet Local we have the solution to these critters in the form of our powerful pre-spray.  This spray is formulated by our vigorous chemicals, which help to break down and destroy the eggs, because the eggs are not sticky they eventually fall on to the ground meaning removing them requires our pre-spray before the main hot water extraction cleaner is applied to withdraw the now destroyed eggs from the carpet.


So if you require our professional carpet cleaning services to remove dust mites and fleas from your home, feel free to give us a call on 01202 70 50 45 and see how we can help you!
