NEWLY INSTALLED CARPETS ARE OFTEN A HEALTH HAZARD

e mail for advice

SOME SYMPTOMS FROM NEW CONVENTIONAL CARPET FUMES

Increase of smell , moodiness, rash or itching, hair loss, weight loss or gain ,flu-like symptoms, aggravated asthma, aggravated allergies, joint pain, muscular aches, abdominal pain, memory loss, poor concentration, nervous system disorders, unusual depression, irritability, twitching and seizures, respiratory tract irritation, menstrual irregularities, sexual dysfunction.

Toxic fumes are dangerous for infants and vulnerable people with asthma, migraines allergies and multiple chemical sensitivities or other immune compromised illness. Your pets are also right down on the ground with the chemicals .

Get a doctor to write into your medical file that you need a chemical free nontoxic home, office or work place and deduct difference between conventional toxic products and safe products like pure wool untreated and undyed carpet as a health expense.

Some people develop symptoms of multiple chemical sensitivities that stays with them for life.

LOOK UP MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSTIVITIES ON GOOGLE

ability to live fully or even work is limited.

The pure wool carpets we offer you are 100% natural wool fiber. The wool is sourced from England and we are sure we are getting high quality and well supervised farming methods . Earth Weave uses only the best and purest wool
.
We offer the purest and best natural wool carpet available using only natural healthy plant materials. Even the adhesive is natural. Earthweave bio floor carpets do not use Styrene Butadiene Rubber which is a combination of petrochemicals or SBR which is 76.5% butadiene and 23.5% styrene .

Even green label carpets use these chemicals but not Earth Weave.

Immune compromised people , asthmatic, chemically sensitive are all safe with this carpet Hemp and cotton is used as backing . Bio degradable natural rubber s used as adhesive when needed .Jute, a tough nature plant fiber is used in the backing as well  

Avoid headaches,burning eyes and throat from toxic fumes in new carpets .


CONVENTIONAL REGULAR CARPETING AND DANGEROUS CHEMICAL FUMES


Adhesives 4-PC (4-phenylcyclohexene) and many chemicals such as Styrene come from SB latex backing and create the fumes associated with regular new carpets. These cause headaches, runny eyes and nose and odors persist for months and years. After an EPA headquarters incident when hundreds of employees became ill of sick building syndrome, the chemical companies supplying SB latex to the carpet industry coordinated tests to appease the public.  Vinyl-backed carpet tiles were tested.  They emitted a distinct chemical odor, such as vinyl acetate and formaldehyde. The CPSC study did not find any negative health could result from this, but people breathing the fumes did.  Health complaints associated with carpets include neurological, central nervous system and respiratory problems.  Asthma, allergies, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and environmental illness (EI) are on the increase as people become exposed to low level exposures. Although some states warn people of their presence or vocs in carpets, the industry persists in using carpet adhesives  and seam sealants, cushions and pads, emitting dangerous toxic chemical fumes.   Carpet adhesive is spread over the entire surface and is usually SB latex. Seam sealants release 1,1,1-trichloroethane and toluene.  Many carpets with nylon face fibers are stitched into polypropylene primary backing and positioned with styrene butadiene latex ( SB latex, called SBR for styrene butadiene rubber) adhesive on the underside.  Two pounds per square yard of adhesive is the usual secondary SB backing for most carpets. Polypropylene is the primary backing for others.  Some carpets have fabric or polymer secondary backing, attached with a thin coat of SB latex.  Synthetic foam cushion laminated directly to carpet is another form of backing.  Backing materials of styrene butadiene latex are highly reactive compounds, made of toxic components. 4-PC,,SB Latex, polypropylene or polyurethane. Carpet cushion of bonded urethane, prime urethane, sponge rubber and rubberized jute are cushioning material . Carpet dyeing, stain resistant Scotch guard ™, anti static, anti microbial pesticides are all detrimental to your health.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Environmental Illness (EI) are on the increase as people become exposed to low level exposures wether chronic or in one onslaught. Volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), styrene, 4-PC, and formaldehyde are often the worst and some states warn people of their presence in carpets. Carpets are sometimes labeled as being dangerous to people with chemical sensitivities yet industry persists in using carpet adhesives and seam sealants cushions, and pads, emitting dangerous toxic chemical fumes.

Carpet adhesive is spread over the entire surface and is usually SB latex. Seam sealants release 1,1,1-trichloroethane and toluene. The trichloroethane was requested to be phased out by 1996. Who knows what it has been relabeled as ? If a product is included as INERT then its not there. ( So imply EPA and FDA rulings) Many carpets with nylon face fibers are stitched into polypropylene primary backing and positioned with styrene butadiene latex ( SB latex, called SBR for styrene butadiene rubber) adhesive on the underside. Two pounds per square yard of carpet is the usual secondary SB backing for most carpets. Polypropylene is the primary backing for others. Some carpets have fabric or polymer secondary backing, attached with a thin coat of SB latex. Synthetic foam cushion laminated directly to carpet is another form of backing. Carpet installed using tack less strips around the perimeter, over a cushion and stapled to the sub floor is preferable to glues. Commercial installations use adhesive, in two layers or one if cushioning is built into the carpet. Backing materials of styrene butadiene latex are highly reactive compounds made of toxic components. 4-PC, SB Latex, polypropylene or polyurethane. Chemicals we would like to avoid in our living rooms and bedrooms to be sure. Carpet cushion of bonded urethane, prime urethane, sponge rubber, synthetic fiber, and rubberized jute. Are usual cushioning material for carpets. Urethane is made by foaming urethane and methyl butane. Sponge rubber cushion is synthetic rubber material than has been vulcanized, or foamed. Carpet dyeing, resistant Scotch guard (TM), anti static and anti microbial treatments, mothproofing all add to the chemical stew.
