Fumes from common cleaning products can make existing asthma worse, according to a new study.

The reaction follows a new report which claims that common cleaning products can trigger asthma symptoms. A spokesperson from Cleaner Cleaner provides a statement.

Fumes from common cleaning products can make existing asthma worse, according to a new study. Every day products such as bleach, detergents, glass cleaner and air fresheners have been found to heighten asthma –related symptoms for women, with the reduced lung function lasting until the morning after exposure.

Respiratory symptoms were tested in 21 different women who suffer with asthma, with the study lasting over two weeks. The women used different cleaning products throughout the day, and the researchers found that 17 of the women reported having at least one upper respiratory tract symptom during the test period.

“These results support the importance of developing workplace health and safety practices designed to limit exposures to irritant chemicals in cleaning products,” wrote the study team in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Cleaner Cleaner, a family run business that delivers professional cleaning services, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “These results are interesting, and they show that you really have to take care when handling any type of cleaning product.

“Handling these cleaning products can be dangerous so you need to take the proper precautions, however that might not be an option for people as they don’t realise the right ways to use these items. This is where the expertise of a professional cleaning company can pay dividends, with trained staff who know the correct ways to get your building looking as good as new.”

Cleaner Cleaner is a family run business that has been operating across London since 2008. They specialise in comprehensive cleaning, fast response time and personable customer service, operating with the highest calibre of equipment to ensure client satisfaction.
