my son's asthma getting worse when we use steam iron a lot?

he's had attacks before but this last month or two its been non stop, the only thing we can think has changed at home is our ironing business has been increasing, does steam around home make asthma worse? he's 3 & 1/2

    Steam irons not only put off steam but also any chemicals (chlorine, iron, etc) that is in the water you are using are dispersed in the steam and these are very hard on people with asthma. The air in your home is being contaminated with minute chemical particles, you may need to move your business out of your home.

    Probably. It hard to breathe in steam.
