Duct cleaning can create a temporary hazard for asthma sufferers. If you are using duct cleaners, it's very important to choose carefully when considering what kinds of agents used to clean your ducts. Good hepa filters and respirators are key in the operation, but duct cleaning also requires you properly dispose of any refuse created by duct cleaners. Remember that fumes, vapors and other by-products of the chemicals you use in duct cleaning can persist in the ducts. The effects can range from simple odors to asthma symptoms for those who suffer from asthma. You may wish to 'air-out' your duct system for a day or two after a duct cleaning with no one in the home or office.
