How to keep your clothes smelling like a new carpet
A few years ago, the American Cleaning Association (ACAA) was one of the few organizations that did something about the odor-producing chemicals in carpets.
Now, the ACAA is one of two environmental organizations that has released a new report on the topic.
The report, which was released on Monday, identifies 10 types of carpet-soiling chemicals, and how to minimize the risk of exposure.
The new report, called the “Chemicals in Carpet Cleaning,” focuses on a number of issues, including the chemicals used to manufacture carpets, the environmental risks associated with them, and the potential health impacts from exposure.
ACAA co-founder and president John C. Cogswell told The Hill that the report provides a valuable perspective for environmental organizations.
“When you have so many chemicals in our environment, it’s very hard to know what chemicals are doing what, and that’s where the report comes in,” he said.
“We’ve been working for the last 15 years to make our carpet cleaner, and we’ve had a very difficult time.
Now we have a new perspective, and hopefully it will be of use to all of us.”
Cogwels first noticed the chemical problem in 2005.
He and his wife, Susan, had recently moved to an apartment in Atlanta and had to clean up a couple of old carpet pieces.
“It’s a very dirty carpet,” Cogwas told The Washington Post.
“And I had to do a lot of scrubbing, too.
There were several things in the carpet that smelled bad.
It was like I had been to a gas station and had a big bottle of gas.”
After scrubbing with a bleach solution, he found the carpet pieces had a strange odor.
“The carpet smelled like a big dump truck,” Coggwas said.
When he smelled the chemicals, Cogwilles wife came home to a strange scent in their apartment.
“That smell, I think, had been going on for a while,” Cogswife said.
Coggwis wife also reported smelling a very “wet” smell in their bedroom.
The smell was still there the next morning, and when Cogws wife came to visit the next day, she found the smell even worse.
“I was so shocked,” she said.
The next day she went to her doctor and discovered she had been exposed to a chemical that was also used in carpet cleaning.
It turns out, the chemicals in carpet cleaner are a mix of synthetic and natural, according to the report.
“These are chemicals that are used to make carpets,” COGwilles told The Post.
The chemicals used in carpettare used in the manufacture of a number products, including carpet cleaner.
These chemicals include benzyl chloride, which is used in many products that are manufactured using a chemical called chlorophenol sulfonate, or CPPSS.
These compounds are often used in cleaning products, and have been associated with a variety of health problems.
They are also the main ingredients in carpet cleaners.
According to the ACNA report, the chemical that causes the smell in carpet cleanings is methyl mercaptan, a form of the molecule that is used to create a chemical compound called benzyl alcohol.
In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency has listed methyl mercptan as a carcinogen.
“Methyl mercaptans [also known as mercaptenone] are a class of substances known to cause cancer and other health problems,” the report says.
The ACNA study found that people living in areas where carpet cleaners were sprayed often had a higher rate of health issues including: lung and breast cancer; cardiovascular disease; cancer of the liver; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and skin cancer.
The group of chemicals in the report includes a list of the following: benzyl acetate, which can be used to add chlorine to carpets and to coat the carpet surface; dioxin, which has been linked to cancer; ethylbenzene, a known carcinogen; and polyvinyl alcohol, a suspected neurotoxin.
In addition, the report found that a large number of carpet cleaners used in residential environments contained chemicals linked to adverse health effects, including arsenic, cadmium, lead, and other metals.
“There is an overwhelming body of evidence that the compounds found in carpet-cleaning products are hazardous to human health,” the ACDA said in a press release.
“A chemical called methyl mercactone is the most commonly used by carpet cleaners and has been shown to be a carcinogenic compound in humans.
The carcinogenicity of methyl mercactsone is not known.
Therefore, the safety of carpet cleaning products should not be a concern to the public.”
“It is clear that carpet cleaning chemicals are highly toxic to humans,” Cogan said.
According, the research on the carpet cleaners in the ACCA’s report has also revealed a wide range of health effects from these chemicals.
For example, the study found
