This will eventually go away on its own in a few years through the process of heating and cooling the inside of your house; and those little springtails will likely go away on their own as well.
Why do I suddenly have springtails? Outdoors, some springtail species can live in dry environments, such as around urban sidewalks and buildings, but most species need moisture to thrive. Irrigation or rainwater suddenly filling soil pores may flush springtails to the surface or promote the growth of food to boost springtail populations.
What attracts springtails in the home? Springtails are attracted to light and are so small that they can enter houses through cracks and crevices such as around doors, utility pipes, or window screens. Repair torn screens and close up places where the springtails can enter the house, such as spaces under doors and around windows and attic or basement vents.
