    How much vacuuming is too much vacuuming? My PCO said to do it every other day but I think he just said that because he knew I'd be vacuuming 24 hours a day if he didn't say that.

    I just can't vacuum anymore. The actual vacuuming, the rinsing of the vacuum canister, filter, and parts, the hoping that one of the evil bugs didn't escape......But I know I have to vacuum. So over this.

    We were also told to vacuum every other day. Two treatments vacuuming and we're clear. It has been just about 4 months

    @Lllo were you just supposed to vacuum carpets, or did you vacuum where harborages were or something?

    @barelyliving that is a great question. I hope someone gives guidance on it.

    I've been vacuuming the ceiling,, ceiling crevices, carpet to wall crevices, inside and outside furniture, ceiling fans, ceiling vents, floors...sometimes walls too. I want to run the vacuum over our electronics but don't know that it will do any good. I don't know that any of what I'm doing is doing any good...

    We vacuumed floors and furniture. PCO also vacuumed, steamed and used dragnet. Between treatments, which were 2 weeks apart we vacuumed every other day. We removed the fabric from the box spring and the 1 couch which was infested and vacuumed inside as well. My last bite was mid November and our second treatment was December 1
    BB Alert monitors on beds and couch since mid December and all clear.

    I have a question actually. Do you clean the actual brush of the vacuum?
