When marking Facebook messages as spam do I have to deactivate my account right after I report them or if I do it within 24 hours does it still work to delete my sent messages?

NO. You don't have to deactivate your account, even you don't need to logout right after reporting a message as spam or anything else.

See the Facebook Help Center:

Report a threatening Facebook message.
