  • I think carpet cleaner.... just because I don't shampoo or do anything with my carpets right after my bug guy comes (he comes monthly)....I always do that right before he comes.

  • I say carpets last. You don't want the bug guy going through your house and getting the carpets dirty.

  • Well, ok, I don't know exactly how the bug guy does it but he should go along the walls and spray the baseboards so you should be ok carpet cleaning after.

  • I own a professional carpet cleaning business, and I always recommend exterminating first, then giving it a little time for the spray to do it's job. Follow up with the carpet service a week or two after the pest control application to remove dead bugs and/or eggs.
