If you see a few fleas does that mean there are 100's on the way?

I have seen 3 fleas, but not noticed any bites on myself. Is this an indication of some infestation that is about to explode?

Been in a new place for a month, I do not have pets though the previous tenant had cats and there are strays in the neighborhood.
All the times that I have seen fleas, they've been jumping onto me from the floor. Does this mean they are breeding inside the apartment? Or could they be coming in from outside?
I'm not a big fan of spraying chemicals all over the place and I certainly don't want to do anything if there's not a real problem here.
So- should I treat for fleas?
