Need answer, please help...?

Hello to all. I'm new to the website. I've seen all the expertise "LCO's" that use this forum and I was hoping y'all(yes, as you can tell, I'm from Texas) could help me out w/ this. Is there a waiting period for mowing, after a yard has been "aerated"(I hope I spelled that right)? Or can you just mow as usual w/out waiting any? Thanks ahead of time for any insight on this...

Cut away, it will help break up the plugs removed by the aeration process which will help break down any thatch you may have in the turf. If you have a choice wait a day or so just so the plugs dry up a bit before mowing, otherwise your tires will most likely get covered in mud when you cut. Not a problem unless you need to cut across driveways and sidewalks to run your pattern. Then you will leave tire tracks wherever you go.
