    Hello everyone I have a multitude of questions. So my room was chemically treated by a professional on December 8. He didn't say anything about having to air out the room or open a window or anything he just said whenever the chemicals dry (which would take a few hours) I could sleep in my room. Well it has now been over 24 hours and I still haven't been into my room. The ceiling fan has been on the fastest setting and the door open all the way. When I walked down the hallway and stood just outside the doorway I could still smell the chemicals not as strongly but I still smell it. I'm really getting paranoid about the chemicals. Is it safe to be in a room that's been chemically treated? I don't want to get sick or have anything worse happen from inhaling, touching, or being surrounded by the chemicals. When will it be safe to be in my room again? Also I left my deodorant, face cream and hair brushes in a basket out in the open on my dresser, is it even safe to use these now or is it possible the chemicals could have gotten in my stuff? As for my makeup its in Ziploc bags inside of a small plastic container with drawers but the container is out in the open. I just feel like I cant even go in my room like it's a nuclear radiation zone now or something. I seriously just want to throw all my cosmetics and toiletries away. I'm started to get seriously depressed and stressed out I have so many questions I don't know what's safe anymore.

    Thank you, I feel a bit better now. As for the makeup, face cream, and deodorant, do you think I should throw those out? I mean I had some saran wrap over some stuff but idk if the guy sprayed inside the basket where my stuff was

    Alrighty, thanks for the advice! I'll go ahead and soak my brushes then and clean off my deodorant with a Clorox wipe as well as clean it with hot soapy water. It's almost been 3 days and i can still smell the chemicals so I think after another week the smell should be gone hopefully
