Flea Treatments in Kent
Quick guide to our flea treatment service
Flea problems are typically within houses and most commonly originate from pets. From £50 + VAT our fleas treatment kills the adult fleas followed by their larvae. We provide flea treatments in homes throughout Kent and London. Contact us free today on 0800 013 0181.
Identifying A Problem
Fleas are tiny insects around 1-4mm long and black/brownish in colour. They do not have wings but they can lay twenty five eggs a day.
Fleas live exclusively as parasites of warm blooded animals such as cats and dogs, and also humans. Their eggs are slightly sticky and are laid on bedding, clothing, and fur/hair of the host. Carpets will provide a warm stable environment for fleas to breed and they can live in cracks and crevices of bare floors.
Fleas qualify as a so called ‘nuisance pest’ rather than a ‘public health pest’. Fleas will bite their potential host but not everyone is susceptible, although if bitten the bites may cause severe irritation and can become infected.
Assessment, Treatment and Guarantee
Arrowguard offers a call-out service to treat fleas in your premises. Our service is fast, effective, and offers the highest level of safety for people and pets. If the infestation came from a pet we recommend a veterinary product be used to treat the animal. All animal bedding and accessories should be washed in a fifty plus degree wash.
We would ask that the all the rooms being treated be vacuumed throughout and the vacuum cleaner should be emptied and cleaned. We would request that floors must be cleared of household items prior to treatment, as we will be spraying a water based chemical onto these areas and around skirting boards and wall floor junctions.
We advise that you give up to two weeks for the full treatment to work as the chemical kills only the adult fleas, not the larvae. The flea larvae may appear during and up to fourteen days after the treatment, which is normal, and the treatment will then kill them.
Cost For Treatment
While every flea treatment is different, pricing is generally decided on the size of the property. An indication cost for one treatment would be from £50 + VAT.
On every treatment to destroy these pests we provide our clients with the relevant health and safety information. Arrowguard staff are fully trained, registered and licensed to use all chemicals and materials.
Arrowguard understand the habits of pest species and use that knowledge to choose the proper control methods and materials and to develop an effective control programme. We are clear in the knowledge that your time is precious and we have total respect for:
- Your home
- Your family
- Your pets
- Your time
At all times we operate the highest levels of safety when dealing with people and pets.
Testimonials From Our Customers
Arrowguard are contracted to all our sites in the Kent region and deal with multiple problems as they arise. They recently treated one of our offices for biting insects. Their operatives are friendly and helpful and I look forward to having a chat and a mug of tea with the gentleman on their regular visits.
I have no qualm in recommending this company and its staff to anyone in need of assistance with their pest control.

DS Smith Packaging, Sheerness, Kent
I recently moved into a new property and within a few hours of being in the premises I found I had bites to my legs. I then saw to my horror what looked like fleas jumping in and out of the carpets. The previous tenants had cats living with them and I was sure that this was the problem. I spoke with Arrowguard and they reassured me that they could successfully treat the problem. I had an intensive spray treatment throughout the property and within a few days I no longer found a problem.
