If you have pets living in your home, you may need to rid your home of fleas occasionally. Have you ever walked into your living room and suddenly had your ankles covered in biting fleas. That is how you know that a flea infestation has gotten out of hand in your carpet. You may be tempted to throw the pets outside forever. Before you do try these simple steps to rid your home of fleas and prevent a future flea infestation. (These cleaning methods can be used for any insect infestation or prevention of one)
Vacuum the entire area thoroughly. If you have an attachment for vacuuming corners, edges, and crevices use it.
Fill your carpet shampooer with CEDAR-AL Cedar Oil Carpet Shampoo following your portable extractor machine, Hoover, Bissell, Commercial, etc, manufacture instructions. Fill the water reservoir as usual.
Shampoo the carpets with the shampooer set on the normal to heavy setting. Make sure you overlap each pass with the shampooer at least two inches so you do not miss any areas. If your shampooer has an attachment for edges, use it. If it does not you may want to put some of this mixture into a bucket and scrub these areas with a utility-type brush.
Open your windows, turn on fans, and point them into the rooms you have shampooed so the carpet can dry faster and the concentrated cedar oil can ventilate. If you cannot open the windows, use fans and a dehumidifier.
Spray your vacuum bag with CEDAR-AL cedar oil if your vacuum has a vacuum bag. Vacuum the carpet thoroughly once it has dried completely overlapping each pass with the vacuum by at least two-inches.
Wash items in the washing machine that will fit and are machine washable such as bedding, furniture covers, throw pillows, stuffed toys, and rugs and add about 3 oz of CEDAR-AL cedar oil to the detergent. Items that can be dried in an electric dryer should be as the heat will kill any survivors. Spray cedar oil on a strip of cloth and drop it in the dryer when drying the clothes or air-fluffing them for added benefit.
Spray items such as furniture and large stuffed animals that you cannot shampoo or launder with the cedar oil and mist anything you did not shampoo or launder.

"We use the cedar shampoo for our dog and our son's dog. We use the cedar spray for the bedding, small amount under his bedding. Plus I spray in our musty cellar. I also spray around the door ways and windows to help keep bugs away. I spray in my cedar closets to freshen them up also. I put on cotton balls under furniture and in cupboards to freshen those places. It is sprayed on cotton balls and I make little scarves for my pets, with that oil and lavender that I grow to repel fleas when he is playing outside. I use it actually everywhere. Also in my blanket chest to store seasonal clothes and blankets. Soooo much better then moth balls. Spray my screens with it. I love the stuff, as you can see. It is simply a wonderful fresh smell. Some goes in my wash water every once in a while to wash floors also, just a tiny amount. There are many uses for it. I dilute it in a spray bottle with water to spray around my house and closets. So as not to be too strong or irritating to the nose or skin if comes in contact, plus it helps to go further for me as I do use it a lot!!! Thank you for your wonderful products. I always tell people about you, keep up great smelling products!"
