Wasn't sure where to post this, so I apologize if this isn't the right place to ask. Anyways:
I recently bought two of these air duster cans, planning to finally get some dust out of my pc. However, didn't initially think about the fact that using these inside might be dangerous, after all it is a potentially flammable gas and not air. Obviously I'm not going to put the duster in the microwave or hold it upside down. I currently live in a tiny 1 room + bath apartment, that's the main reason I'm slightly concerned. Can a small air duster actually cause any harm when used in a small space? Should I simply not use one inside a small space at all? If I can use it inside, how much ventilation is enough? Taking the pc outside in the snow isn't really an option.

Maybe I'm being paranoid, but I want to be on the safe side here.
All replies are appreciated.

Standard air duster gas isn't combustible or reactive.

Can you link the product you purchased?

I don't recommend dusting inside if only because you are returning the dust to the inside. Best on the drive or back porch, etc.
