Fleas like these areas too, so make sure that in addition to vacuuming, etc, spray and scrub your walls. You can brush ’em by hand or you can use a Swiffer, sure the popcorn kernels leftover from ceilings might end up all over the place, but they sure as hell are less annoying than fleas.
A note on vacuuming – and be prepared to look SILLY – how many of you actually pick *Up* your vacuum off the ground and hover it over the stuff in your house? Hover it over piles of clothes, open drawers, sinks (just not too close to the toilet/things that made contact), chairs. If you hear that loud crackling of debris coming through akin to that ground-penetrating radar noise, you’re hovering over one of their hotspots. Just make sure nobody else is home when you do it, lest your boyfriend/spouse/significant other/wife sees you and makes fun of you. If it didn’t appear on Youtube, it didn’t happen (alternatively, you might decide you don’t care if your husband makes fun of you much like I didn’t, and do it anyway because you don’t want anymore fleas).
Fleas don’t play by human rules and social constructs – they will go everywhere they can, regardless of whether it’s convenient to clean or kill them off in that area or not. Prepare to throw a little dignity out the window.. and become one of the flea-free.
