How to get rid of this?.

To get rid of pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.

Description: Fleas are very small, thin, and flat usually measuring only about 2.5 mm in length as adults. Covered in minuscule hairs used to attach themselves to a host, they are reddish brown and somewhat shiny in appearance.
Biology: Fleas lifespan is extremely dependent upon the environmental conditions they are exposed to. Female fleas will lay 4-8 eggs after a meal. However, unlike other parasites eggs, flea eggs will not stick to a host and are more likely to drop to the ground immediately after being laid.
Habits: With three sets of long legs, fleas are able to jump long distances despite being unable to fly. Often found on hairy animals such as dogs and cats, fleas cause the infected animal to attempt to scratch bites continuously.
Control: If your pet is suffering from fleas, contact your veterinarian for applicable medication and treatment options for your pet directly. To ensure the fleas and their discarded eggs are entirely eradicated from your home, contact your pest control professional.
