Are household flea sprays safe for carpets?
All our sprays are designed to be used on floors, carpets, soft furnishings and pet beds. However, it is recommended that
fabrics are tested for colour fastness by testing on a small, inconspicuous area first. When using, hold the can
from a distance of 30cm and spray to form a light mist. Avoid overwetting fabrics and avoid heavy use on paint work.
Can pets walk on the carpet after it is sprayed?
Pets should not be allowed to walk on the carpet until the spray has dried. The wet product could be transferred to the pet’s
paws, which could then be licked off when the animal grooms itself. These products are not designed to be ingested
and may cause sickness. Our Beaphar Household Flea Sprays are formulated to be effective and dry quickly, so any
disruption will soon pass, allowing normal use of the room.
Can my baby crawl on the carpet after it has been sprayed?
Your baby should not crawl on any surface treated with a Beaphar Home until it is dried. Before treating a room, ensure that
any toys/ items which the baby may play with or put into its mouth are removed or securely covered. Beaphar Extra
Long Lasting Household Flea Spray is the most suitable product for flea control in a household with young children,
as very little repeat treatment is required and the long-acting, IGR element of the product is extremely safe.
