A reader's General Construction question: MDF concern?
Tim B. from Thomasville NC : United States had this mdf concern.For many years now I have been using mdf indoors. The company that I was with didn't have a good ventilation system. Do you think I have any concerns?
In the scale of things MDF is no more dangerous than many other substances we all come up against in our working life. The various solvents that we use with glues and paints come to mind.
Certainly nothing like as harmful as asbestos, which many of us used indiscriminately for many years.
Thinking about it now, maybe I was a little bit over the top on my MDF page, and I will tone it down a bit. Still if it has prompted a few to take sensible precautions it can't be any harm.
If you are still working in a similar environment, keep the dust extractors in top condition and try to get as much ventilation into the place as you can. But don't stress out too much if you are feeling OK.Cheers
