Both types of tear gas have health risks associated with exposure, including respiratory problems, irritation of skin and lungs, difficulty breathing, etc. It is important for those involved in the cleaning process to be aware of which type of tear gas they are cleaning, since the remediation process may differ. In either case, personal protective equipment should always be used in the cleaning process.
