I had broken a CFL partially on carpet last week. It was a spent bulb, and the outer glass shell broke but not the fluorescent tube - apparently the tube did have a small hole in it which found out after all my other steps when I saw it in the garbage.
When I cleaned it up first, I used a mild spray cleaner which contained methyl esters and various surfactants - I found this out now, not then, or I wouldn't hzve used it. Wiped it all up with a paper towel, then vacuumed in case I missed small pieces. I did ventilated at that point.
About two hours later, my cat made a mess on the rug. At that point, I sprayed down the carpet with resolve (which says it contains hydrogen peroxide). Wiped that all down with a towel, then revacuumed...and realized I hadn't cleaned out the dust cup. I think I then emptied that outside and cleaned out the HEPA filter.
My concern now is what I may have exposed myself to in that botched cleanup. Any ideas on what may have formed? Do I need to be concerned?
