Danger – New Carpet OdorsPosted on August 12th, 2013
Planning to put in new carpet in your home or office?
New carpet is wonderful because it gives you a fresh, new, clean feeling. Did you know, however, that a caustic chemical lurks in new carpet?
They are called VOCs, Volatile Organic Compounds, and are a substance that contains carbon and that evaporates or “off-gases” at room temperature.
A number of building and household materials may be sources of VOCs. New carpeting, backing, and adhesives; draperies; wood products that use certain glues, finishes, and waxes in the manufacturing process; and vinyl type flooring and wall coverings may all release VOCs into the air.
Studies of animals have shown that breathing some types of VOCs over a long period of time can increase the risk of getting cancer.
These odors can easily be removed with Earth Care’s Clear The Air Odor Eliminators. Simply sprinkling Earth Care Clear The Air granules on the carpet and hanging Earth Care Odor Remover Bags will eliminate the new carpet odors. This unique form of Earth Care Products Mineral does not have to come into contact with the odor producer; it will pull the odors from the entire area.
Clear The Air draws in odors like a powerful magnet. The odors are absorbed, and neutralized without any fragrances. Clear The Air does not cover up odors; it literally “clears the air” leaving the air fresh and clean. Clear The Air is made from an all-natural mineral, is non-toxic and biodegradable and safe for Planet Earth.
Are you planning any type of home improvement project? Make sure to keep our Clear The Air on hand to eliminate harmful chemicals such as VOCs that lurk in paint, glues and carpets.Uncategorized carpet, carpet dangers, carpeting, health, health benefits, new carpet, new carpet odor, odor, odor eliminator, odor remover, VOC
