Carpet Cleaning at Its Best Eliminating Pests Like Beetles

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
Good housekeeping techniques can help prevent infestations. Keep floors uncluttered and vacuum regularly to remove beetle, larvae and eggs. Clean floors won't provide a food source (like pet hair) for the beetles.

Damages done by carpet beetles can usually be found on furniture and fabrics of clothes or carpeting. Fabrics may typically have surface damage and a few holes here and there that accumulate over time.

Irregular holes in carpets or fabrics that have no other explanation can be evidence of a carpet beetle problem. Larvae and beetles can often be seen on the surface of the carpet. If you have noticed carpet beetles around your home, it is important to get rid of them quickly,

Stains on fabrics can attract carpet beetles so good a dry cleaner may be one of your best pest control helpers. Perspiration and food stains are attractive and tasty for carpet beetles and their kin. Store your out-of-season items in sealed plastic bags or containers, especially vulnerable fabrics like silk and wool.

The safest method of pest control for carpet beetles may be hormone based traps. Such traps are typically glue traps. These traps are used to monitor how heavy your infestation is.

Barrier treatment may be the most effective for outdoor treatment of carpet beetles. It is just like what the name makes it out to be – creating a barrier around the home to keep carpet beetles out. These treatments are applied by liquid insecticide. Soil areas that are adjacent to the structure and also barriers around the lower portion of the foundation are treated with liquid insecticide. The most thorough barrier treatments are applications that are 2-3 feet up the structure from the base and 2-3 feet out from the base of the structure. Also, target the areas around the windows and door frames. Utility pipes that lead into the home should also be treated. All these areas are areas that are potential entry points for carpet beetles. Also, nests should be inspected as well.

If beetles are found throughout the structure, localized applications of residual insecticides may be needed. Treatment should be lightly applied to those surfaces upon which the insects are likely to crawl, such as along the edges of carpeting, in closets, behind radiators, baseboards and mouldings, and in corners, cracks, and so forth. Cases of heavy, widespread infestation may require the services of a professional pest control operator.

In case you find carpet beetles or their nests, vacuum clean the carpet or the upholstery immediately. We suggest you to use steam cleaning for best results. Often it is more expensive if you try to remove the insects yourself, because you need to buy detergents and special equipment, not to mention that it is very time-consuming if you need to repeat the job several times.

Steam carpet cleaning uses hot temperature and specialized treatment to kill the bugs in your carpet and remove the dirt. The drying times of carpet and upholstery are usually only a couple of hours, so you will only need one day to get rid of the insects and have a fresh clean home! Steam cleaning is environmentally friendly and also prolongs the life of your furniture and carpets.
