Health Hazards From Dirty Carpet:
Have you ever heard the term Sick Building Syndrome (SBS)? It’s been around for many years, and is used to indicate a situation where the building occupants are experiencing acute health problems.
One of the causes, for instance is installation of a new carpet. A wide range of occupant complaints after the installation of a new carpet, including nose and throat discomfort, headache, allergic skin reaction, uncomfortable breathing, nausea, fatigue, or even dizziness.
Some people like strong smells, like “new car”, “gasoline”, “wet paint”, etc. However, the strong chemical smell that comes with new carpet installation can be a huge problem. The can come from the chemicals in the carpet itself, and the installation products.
For instance, some new carpets contain VOCs, Volatile Organic Compounds, which emit gases associated with some of these negative health side effects. These smells can linger after installation for up to a week. Many homeowners, or commercial landlords, are unaware of these dangers.
