Green Carpet Cleaning Service at Home

The chemicals used in carpet cleaning can get into the air of a room when applied during cleaning, and kids can ingest them as they play on the floor soon afterwards. Carpet-cleaning solutions contain a cocktail of noxious synthetic chemicals, and one of them, perchloroethylene or perc, is known to cause dizziness, fatigue and nausea if ingested or inhaled. Another chemical, naphthalene, is considered toxic to the human central nervous system and a possible carcinogen. It can also pollute the local groundwater if disposed improperly.
