Laura from Lancaster, Sc writes,

Can I spray Ultracide in my utility room where my gas hot water heater is located?

I have noticed a lot of fleas in my utility room (where vents for hot water heater and dryer are located). I purchased your Ultracide product and sprayed the entire house except for the utility room because I was unsure as to whether it was safe to do so because of the gas hot water heater. Therefore, I put borax down on that floor and have noticed quite a few fleas (dead or struggling to stay alive). I will do a second treatment of Ultracide in another week and would like to know if I can use it in my utility room. I also used the ultracide (also sprinkled borax) on the hardwood floors, without any staining, as more than 1/2 of the flooring in the house is hardwood and I was experiencing fleas jumping onto my socks and pant legs from the hardwood floors and vinyl.


You can apply Ultracide to the floor surfaces in the utility room (after testing a small area). You should vacuum daily all of the floor surfaces and dispose of the bag or empty the cansiter immediately when finished. The product should NOT be applied to an area where it can contact a flame as it is extremely flammable.
