We recommend using this product once a week during the 1st month to reduce very quickly the symptoms of allergies. After that, using it once a month will suffice to avoid repopulating the mattresses (armchair, sofa, carpet) with dust mites coming from elsewhere.
Acar’Up eliminates dust mites. It does not clean away the allergens that the dust mites have released before being eliminated. For this, you are advised to vacuum the mattress with a device equipped with an HEPA filter. This cleaning is necessary the first time after using Acar’Up. Then, since the dust mite population will be greatly diminished, it will be less useful to vacuum the mattress.
For Acar’Up to operate in optimal fashion, you are strongly discouraged from using a water softener or fabric softener during washing. After using Acar’up, more than 80% of the dust mites are eliminated. After 2 applications, 95% of the dust mites are eliminated.
