Brief Answer:
Open all the windows, doors and start the exhaust

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

1. One needs to open all the doors and windows and start the exhaust fans if present.

2. There are (full face) Chemical Gas Respirator Face Masks available in the market which can be used while one is doing this.

3. It is better to be away from home, locking the main gates and opening all the other exits as far as possible. Of course take care of the security measures!

4. It is ideally safe to shift after 24 hours in the home if possible.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer follow up queries if any.

Brief Answer:
Exhaust fans push air from inside out.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Exhaust fans are installed in some homes, particularly in the kitchens to push out the air from inside. They can be used in such situations if installed in the home.

Brief Answer:
To be on the safer side

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
It takes some time for the fumes to be dispersed and vented out. A duration of 24 hours ensures that maximum gas has been ventilated out hence this much time to avoid exposure by not staying in house.

Exhaust fans causing gerd is not known.
