Conventionally manufactured carpets can present a number of concerns to the consumer’s health. Toxic adhesives are often used in carpet backing and can emit chemicals that greatly compromise indoor air quality. We stock a three component system from AFM Safecoat to address this issue and ensure that your health, as well as the carpet, remains protected for years to come.
The first step is to clean synthetic carpets with Safecoat’s Carpet Shampoo. This gentle yet effective cleaner will help remove loose fibers from new carpet and prepare the area for the sealer. AFM’s strong stance on consumer health guarantees this shampoo will provide a professional cleaning for your carpet without employing harsh chemicals and solvents found in many conventional carpet cleaning solutions.
After shampooing, the next step is to seal the carpet. Carpet Seal is designed to coat and seal the backing of the carpet, where the highest amount of caustic adhesives are found, therefore presenting the highest concentration of off-gassing. Using the sealer while the carpet is still damp from shampooing will allow it to soak down to the backing.
After sealing the carpet, the final step is to protect the surface. AFM Safecoat’s Lock Out is designed to seal the fibers of the carpet itself to repel dirt and stains. Lock Out provides superior protection for your carpet without utilizing harmful chemicals found in most carpet sealers. When used with Carpet Seal, your carpet is sure to be protected from the ground up.
