Toxic Carpet Solution

Submitted by on Friday, 21 May 20104 Comments

AFM SafeChoice Carpet Seal (formerly SafeChoice Carpet Guard) is a unique sealer designed to prevent the outgassing of harmful chemicals used in carpet backing. These chemicals include such known carcinogens as formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, xylene and styrene. Carpet Seal is odor-free and, when properly applied, effectively blocks outgassing for up to five cleanings or one year.

I have some experience with this product as a friend moved into an apartment that had new carpet and the smell gave him a headache. I suggested he buy this product and when it arrived I helped him apply the sealant. Amazingly, once it dried you could hardly tell it was there, and best of all it removed the smell completely.

  • Professional carpet cleaning services are most definitely
    the process that may be employed to supply the most impressive results. They
    have the experience cleaning carpets and this suggests they can ensure the
    final product is something the home-owner or department dweller will be pleased
    with. Those that try and clean their own carpeting won’t have access
    to such hardware.

    cleaners can provide quality service and perform a variety of duties. It does
    not matter how big or small your office or working environment is. A little
