Are holiday guests entitled to compensation for fleas that appeared through no fault of ours? We sign specific short term lease through a company for our holiday home.

Now guests from Germany are claiming compensation for fleas that invaded the carpet during a heat wave. We have our carpets always professionally cleaned. Who is liable?
