    My treatments are finished (for now at least) and my PCO has said it's okay to vacuum. I read that I should vacuum with the brushes/beater turned off as eggs can stick to the brushes and don't come off. Is this a good suggestion?

    I use a vacuum with the plastic container and know to dump it in a bag outside and then wash it thoroughly.

    Thanks!

    If there are no more adults and all the eggs have hatched, it probably doesn't matter. I just use the hose end of the vacuum on box frames.

    Along the lines of what Jim posted, I'll also use the crevice tool to hit the seams and tight areas. Makes it easy to fold back the overlapping piping on mattresses and such.
