THE TRUTH NO ONE WANTS YOU TO KNOW
Over 70% of homes have carpeting in the majority of all rooms. Carpets cover the floors of our business and schools. Children play on them for hours, infants crawl on them and deeply inhale their fumes. Proud homeowners inhale that 'new-carpet smell', and all the while being poisoned by the release of deadly chemicals. Whether your carpets are new or old, they probably have more bad things in them than you want to imagine. The list is staggering!
NO PROTECTION FOR CARPET CONSUMERS
Unfortunately, the widespread use of these deadly chemicals has virtually no restrictions by the EPA. They excuse the ongoing use of chemicals in the carpet industry. The EPA allows companies to decide for themselves regardless of the consumer’s safety. DuPont and seven other PFC chemical manufacturers have said they're phasing out deadly toxins, but a phase-out is not mandatory, and there's no penalty if the companies choose not to use safer alternatives.
CHEMICAL NAME GAMES
Companies that are moving away from the bad press of commonly known chemicals, are simply switching to related chemicals with different names. These new chemicals pose similar health risks and environmental hazards. The EPA does not require safer alternatives, they only facilitate voluntary agreements with the industry.
The thousands of poisonous chemicals are still widely used in carpeting and upholstered furniture, as well as in after-market treatments. And making matters worse, most carpet-cleaning products contain PFC-based stain repellents to "recharge" your carpet's existing toxins, since it wears off with age and repeated cleaning.
