Carpet’s Role in Indoor Environment
Carpet has a lot to do with the making your environment free of
allergens. OSHA estimates that 30 percent of commercial spaces
may have indoor air quality problems. Specific chemical and biological
contaminants can affect the occupants of these buildings health.
Since these spaces are self contained environments usually connected
to a larger environment by heating, ventilation and ac the outside
contaminants come in by these routes.
Carpet is one of the lowest emitters of volatile organic compounds
that pollutes your air space. Other interior products such as paint,
wall coverings and other floor covering emit VOCs (volatile
organic compounds up to ten times higher.
Carpet will insulate your environment and make your space
warmer or cooler depending upon the conditions. Carpet also
makes sounds less audible and ties the walls and ceilings together
