Health Effects

Acute Health Effects:
From MSDS:
Health Hazard Data
CORROSIVE to the eyes. Injures eyes, skin and mucous membranes on contact. Harmful if swallowed; nausea, vomiting, and burning sensation of the mouth and throat may occur. No adverse health effects are expected with recommended use. Occasional clinical reports suggest a low potential for sensitization upon exaggerated exposure to sodium hypochlorite if skin damage (e.g. irritation) occurs during exposure. However, clinical tests conducted on intact skin using a product similar to Clorox ProResults Composite Deck Cleaner found no sensitization in the test subjects. Although not expected, heart conditions or chronic respiratory problems such as asthma, chronic bronchitis or obstructive lung disease may be aggravated by exposure to high concentrations of vapor or mist.
