Abstract Domestic chores are an important part of the household’s daily routine and can contribute significantly to personal exposure. In this study, the particulate mass and number concentrations were assessed when using two irons (steam iron and steam iron with boiler) under distinct conditions (minimum ventilation and indoor doors open) and in the background air. The detailed PM10¬†chemical characterisation included organic and elemental carbon, elements and organic speciation.
