Hi plushpeach10, if you haven't already you need to treat all animals in the house with a spot on product such as Frontline Plus which kills both fleas and eggs and prevents re-infestation. Then buy flea "bombs" these are cans of insecticide that send out a mist into the room it is in. You will need at least one can per room (check the label for exact instructions) Everyone will need to leave the house for the prescribed amount of time, then you will want to clean all counter tops, tables and eating utensils/dishes before you use them.

To get rid of fleas, you first have to prevent them from getting to your dog by giving him medication and ensure that your floor at home is always vacuumed. Use a pet comb to get rid of fleas from your pet and ensure that your dog is washed in warm, soapy water each week. Check out http://www.ehow.com/how_2439_get-rid-fleas.html for more information.

I recommend trying Diatomaceous Earth, you can find it in Lowes as well as Health Food stores. The kind in Lowes can be spread outside as well as inside but recommend the Health Food type as it is pure. The kind in Lowes is for fleas and bugs outside... but can be safely used inside. It slowly cuts the bugs open and kills them when they come in contact and dehydrates them.

Raid actually sells a flea spray that kills on contact. Its a purple can and is in the grocery section at wal mart. Number 2 use diazon on ur lawn with a spreader that works wonders for us cause it will keep ur yard from fleas ticks mosquitoes and other stuff. I love it. And last frontline is ok and one of the top but revolution is the best flea medicine u can get. Little more expensive but i use it. My sister in law is into cats and show dogs. So i go with her expertise. With the raid u can spray furniture and whatever and you dont have to leave home or wash all ur dishes and so forth like the bombs cause they leave residue in everything

Bombs leaves eggs that will hatch and you will have to do it more than once.
