What to do about non-eco-friendly carpeting in our homes that off-gas? Seal them. AFM Safecoat has a couple of carpet sealers that keep carpets from off-gassing. What a relief. AFM also has non-toxic carpet cleaners too. So, you can clean and then seal your carpet to help rid your home of another source of VOCs. Carpet Seal lasts through five cleanings or one year . It keeps the nasties such as formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, xylene and styrene out of the air. Lock Out by AFM seals but is also repels dirt and stains. So, if you can’t afford to replace your carpet with a greener option or if your carpeting is brand new and in perfect condition, this is a great option to help you have healthier indoor air quality.
