It doesn't usually occur to most homeowners that when they have carpets cleaned professionally, they are often introducing dangerous chemicals, some of which can have really harmful effects on family members, into the household environment.
Most homeowners aren't aware that every time they have their carpets cleaned with these chemicals, more toxic residue builds up in the fibers of the carpet. Sure, it smells great, but that's how it is with chemicals - sometimes that appealing fragrance masks the fact that something poisonous has penetrated your living area.
Are all Carpet Cleaners Bad?
By no means! There are some professionals who are aware of the dangers and use only natural carpet cleaning products, which harm no one and are just as effective as commercial shampoos. But don't be fooled by a pretty smell - many of those commercial shampoos contain highly toxic substances, such as ammonium hydroxide and perchlorethylene, which is a carcinogen known to cause damage to kidneys, liver and the nervous system.
After several "cleanings," these carpet cleaner chemicals can build up a toxic residue that is truly frightening. Older carpets are particularly suspect because many of them were made before more stringent regulations were passed, governing the kinds of materials and chemicals that could be used in the manufacturing process.
If your carpet has been in place awhile, it could also have accumulated years of dirt, dust, mites, animal hair, pesticides and cleaning products.
