The dangers of synthetic carpet cleaners
Many carpet cleaners depend on powerful cocktails of noxious synthetic chemicals to get the job done. One, perchloroethylene, commonly called “perc” in the industry, is a notorious dry cleaning additive known to cause dizziness, fatigue and nausea if ingested or inhaled. Perc has also been linked to kidney and liver damage. Another chemical, naphthalene, a solvent manufactured from coal tar, is considered toxic to the human central nervous system and a possible carcinogen.
Carpet cleaning chemicals get into the air of a room when applied during cleaning, and can also be ingested by pets or kids who play on the floor soon afterwards. Besides such on-site health threats, carpet cleaning chemicals can pollute local groundwater if disposed of improperly (such as directly down your drain). Wastewater from carpet cleaning requires treatment and/or filtration in order to neutralize contaminants.
