    Well, we just had our treatment (1st). Not sure what the guy did, but it seemed like a combo of liquid and power (this is in Canada with different regulated liquids than US). Does anyone know what this stuff is?

    My main question is whether I should start vacuuming yet. The treatment was yesterday. I have read conflicting reports about vacuuming right after. Some say it's fine, some say to wait. I don't want to undermine his efforts! The instructions written are a little vague, stating that vacuuming should be done every 3-4 days, but doesn't say how soon after.

    Also, all of the cushions are off the couch...what do you think was done to these items? can they be vacuumed? can the mattress be vacuumed right away?

    I would ask my PCO, but their office is closed today.

    Thanks so much! Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    Don't vacuum without checking with the PCO first. Even if it's "every 3-4 days," you should make sure they want you to vacuum where the powder is. If the dust is a mechanical killer, they probably won't want it vacuumed up.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
