Sergeant's® Gold household flea and tick products are safe enough to use as often as needed. However, Sergeant's does recommend waiting 24 hours after the first use to ensure that the fleas and ticks are dead.
Sergeant's® Gold Household Flea & Tick Spray will take approximately 2 hours to dry. You are not required to leave the house during this time frame, but all people, children and pets should stay out of any treated rooms while the spray is drying. Please note these estimated times may be longer in areas with high humidity.
Yes. Once the spray is dry, you can resume your normal routine. It is recommended to wait for at least two hours after you sprayed the carpets and furniture. After this time frame, check to make sure that the carpets and furniture are dry. Note: it may take longer than two hours for drying in high humidity regions.
It is not recommended to spray your linens directly. However, you can take the linens off of the bed and spray the mattress. While the mattress is drying, you may want to consider washing your bed linens to remove any fleas and/or flea eggs that might be on them. Wait a minimum of two hours before putting the linens back over the treated mattress.
If you left your cupboard doors open, I would recommend washing your dishes before re-using them. If you kept your cupboard doors shut, you will not need to wash the dishes. The fogger would not have permeated through the cupboard doors. Sergeant’s does recommend that you wipe down any eating surfaces, such as the kitchen table and kitchen counters, after you are done fogging.
It will not be necessary to wash your clothes after fogging. This is also true of your children's toys, unless your child is at the age where he or she tends to place the toys in the mouth. In this case, you should wash any toys that might be placed in the mouth before giving them to the child.
It is not recommended to walk on the carpets while the powder is still down, and you will want to keep all pets off of the carpets until you have vacuumed the powder up. As long as you are able to restrict your pet to an area of the home that has not been treated with the powder, the animal can be in the home while the carpets are being treated. Once the powder has been vacuumed from the carpets, you, your children, and your pets are safe to return to your normal routine.
