get someone else (dh?) to do the cleaning whilst you go out to breathe.

get a cheap hoover.
hoover, damp dust and mop all surfaces.
air a lot.
repeat every day.

if you have to stay in the house, keep at least one room extra clean by keeping the door shut and hanging an old sheet in front of door so that only minimal dust gets in.

In the light of your asthma, damp cloths - and lots of them.
Careful with anything scratchable (sorry if that's not a word) as brick dust will indeed scratch it (so in that case you may need to hoover).
Put the dirty cloths in your washing machine and rinse them.

Pay an industrial cleaning firm to do it.

We paid a cleaning company to come in after our building work had finished they charged £90 for 3 staff for 3 hours work. The house was totally spotless when they had finished it's definitely worth it!
