According to blogs.cdc.gov At least 14 workers have died since 2000 as a result of using stripping agents containing methylene chloride during bathtub refinishing. However, in all cases, there were improper use of personal protective equipment (ex. face mask) and inadequate ventilation. Chemical stripping a tub with methylene chloride is very effective and as long as there is proper use of industrial ventilation systems with face, mouth and eye/nose protection by using at least a respirator mask, there should be no risks at all. Therefore, stripping and refinishing your bathtub by yourself is not a DIY project. Unless you know what you’re doing and you have the proper safety equipment, DON’T DO-IT-YOURSELF.
