Both cleaning and cleaning agent exposures are major risks for asthma and asthma exacerbations. In a 12-week study, Bernstein and colleagues from the University Of Cincinnati College Of Medicine compared the health effects of household cleaning among 25 asthmatic and 19 non-asthmatic women who reported that they are the primary cleaners in their homes.
After cleaning, they observed a statistically significant increase in the number of respiratory symptoms in asthmatic women compared with non-asthmatic women. Doctors should caution women with asthma about the potential respiratory health effects of cleaning activities and exposure to cleaning agents.
