After spreading diatomaceous dust how long before I can clean

I have spread this stuff through my house as of last night including all animals. I am wondering when I will be able to do a complete cleanup of my house, including dusting, vacuuming and washing of flours. Can someone please help. Thank you

You can completely vacuum diatomaceous dust after two or three days because by then it will have fully performed its function. If you have spread it outside your home, you can leave it for a couple of days. You need to clean your animals after a few minutes of spreading the dust on them since it can dry out your pet's skin.

Thank you so much my animalds have it on since last night and I am seeing flees crawl on one the dogs. Someone came over to our house with the fleas and my animals have not only been shaved down but bathed once a week for the last month. We have done everything that has to be done this was our last resort. Do I reapply to my animals after bathing them.
