okay- so- we just this week made a temporary move into an anpartment that I have just discovered has FLEAS. Lots of them. Prior to this I have been living in a really nice clean house that I have lived in for 12 years and kept very clean and fresh.
So I still have that clean other home, but we moved for the winter into this apartment we are in right now- because- basically, we wanted to check out this nice town we are in and do a temp. move somewhere for the winter. We really like it here in many ways and the apartment is pretty decnet other than that there is some grime in it, there was lots of mustiness in it (but we are working on that successfully) and now these Fleas.
I am bummed about this.
Because we are staying here for at least 3 months (maybe morE) we moved a lot of our stuff here- including our really nice bed with an expensive mattress and nice bedding, some chairs, couches, rugs, our baby's bed and bedding.
So there wer fleas in our bed! I have flea bitses- lots of them.
so I got out of bed and vacuumed the room and much of the apartment as best as I could. I gathered up the laundry ont he bedroom floor and washed it at once- but what else cna I do?
We have a baby- but even witout the baby I would not do a flea bomb chemical thing- I dont' want to unfuse my ny=ice things with anything smelly or chemical- so all I know how to do to respond id to vacuum every day and wahs our bedding as much as I can- though I can wahs the sheets, I am reluctant to wash the blankerts asI am worried they will get ruined.
I am bummed! It seems like there is always somehting.
any ideas on how to deal? Are fleas pretty manageable through lots of thorough vacuuming?
I like to keep a very clean house- but we didn't get to thorughly clean this place before we moved out stuff in.
