Signs That You Have a Carpet Beetle Infestation

Carpet beetles are not always easy to detect. They are tiny and tend to borrow into carpeting and textiles, clothing, and any organic fabrics. You may not see the beetles until you rearrange or clean furniture.

Signs of a carpet beetle infestation include:

  • Thin or bare spots on rugs or carpet
  • Holes in the fabric
  • Damage to blankets
  • Larval skins and debris
  • Allergic skin reactions

Carpet beetles often have an oval-shaped body and grow up to 4mm long. Adult beetles are relatively harmless, but the larvae feed on organic fibres. They can gradually cause damage to carpets, rugs, wool, leather, silk, and other materials. You may also notice live carpet beetles, their larvae, and debris such as larval skins. They are often found near furniture, carpeting, and clothes. It is more likely to find them at the edges of carpets and dark places.

Carpet beetles are easily mistaken for other pests, which increases the importance of letting an expert inspect and treat the infestation. Allow us to verify the presence of carpet beetles and determine the best treatment for your London property.

    How We Treat Carpet Beetles?

    The first step is an inspection to assess the carpet beetle infestation. After inspecting the property, we usually apply two combined treatment methods of Steam and ULV Chemical Fumigation. Any area where we detect carpet beetle activity receives additional attention during treatment. However, we often need to fumigate the entire property. A carpet beetle exterminator will treat all upholstered items, carpets, rugs, and curtains. Severe infestations may require several visits.

    How to Prepare for Carpet Beetle Control?

    For best results, you should clean all areas that need to be treated. Carpet beetle treatments often require all rooms in the property to be fumigated.

    Clean up all clutter, sweep and vacuum the floors. Empty rubbish bins, clean kitchen and bathroom counters, and clean out any foodstuffs that the pests may have contaminated.

    What You Should Do After Carpet Beetle Removal?

    After completing the carpet beetle extermination service in London, you must wait at least three hours before entering the property. You should also avoid vacuuming or washing treated areas for at least two weeks.

    After you stop seeing live carpet beetles and their larvae, resume vacuuming and cleaning. Thoroughly vacuum and clean all treated areas to help prevent the risk of future infestations. Carpet beetle larvae are known to also feed on accumulated dust, so keeping your home clean and tidy will reduce the chances of re-infestation. You may need to move furniture and appliances to clean difficult-to-reach areas where carpet beetles and other pests are most likely to appear.
