Can breathing chlorinated steam cause asthma?

Asthma and Steam

Inhaling steam made from chlorinated water increases the risk of asthma by causing similar reactions to lungs as swimming does to skin and hair. Chlorinated steam gets into the air through common household activities such as showering, washing dishes, and even flushing the toilet. Because the United States Environmental Protection agency requires water to be treated with chlorine, most households will have some chlorine in the air. To reduce the levels of asthma and chlorine in your home, filter your water with a whole home water filter.
