    There is no dependable method that does not involve chemicals. All chemicals however, are not created equal. The best I’ve ever found is Raid Fumigator.
    If you’re absolutely determined to not use chemicals, invite all your friends who own white pets, to bring their pets over for a party. They pets will attract the fleas and carry them off. As an added bonus, this method will get rid of most of your friends too…

    Sprinkle plain table salt all over the carpet and let it sit for 72 hours, then vacuum up. Make sure to empty out the vacuum cleaner bag. The salt gets on the fleas legs, and they eat the salt grains to get it off. Then the salt dessicates the fleas. Works even better if you use a mixture of salt and borax, but if you have kids or pets, don’t use the borax.

    Vacuum the floor. Sprinkle Twenty Mule Team Borax (the laundry additive) on the carpet. Repeat this everytime you vacuum for at least a couple of weeks. The borax in the product will kill the fleas and as the eggs hatch, it will kill them too.

    if its really bad i am of the opinion you will probably have to reallly clean up the place and get it professionally sprayed a couple of times… the more the valuables are out of the way of the sprayer the more effective it will be.

    In Texas I use a non-toxic powder called ‘Flea Away’ purchased from Whole Foods Market. It uses substances from the earth and suffocates the fleas. You can use it on cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies. Seems to work for me, good luck.
