Babies, when placed on the carpets are most likely going to inhale fume, touch or even lick the chemicals in the carpet. These chemicals dissolve dirt without water and soap, yet, give off strong odors.
Studies made us understand that an entire Ecosystem lives in carpets. They have easy access to the body of a crawling, sitting, or laying the child on the carpet and this can pose several health risks. More so, long-term exposures may probably increase the risks for chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, depending on the chemicals involved.
Before hiring a professional to do your carpet cleaning, make sure to research what solutions and products they use.These chemicals can be very harmful to babies, even in the smallest bits of exposure.
