    Beyond the obvious recommendation to use a mask to apply DE to the carpets, what else should I be made aware of as I adventure into this secondary accompaniment treatment? I do have asthma, so any advice or tips/tricks specific to that would be wonderful!

    When I dust I prefer to turn the AC unit off, as well as any ceiling fans. Afterwards I stay out of the unit for a few hours to let everything settle.
    To me it feels very similar to drywall dust, more or less just an annoyance.
