The dangers of cigarette smoke in carpet

A report published by the Daily Mail (2009) discusses the danger that third-hand smoke could cause to children.

According to a number of experts, third-hand smoke is just as dangerous as second hand smoke because the fumes billow in a cloud like form, putting babies and children at risk.

The report warned that the dangers of third-hand smoke are very real as the toxic particles in cigarette smoke linger on surfaces long after the cigarette has been put out. Even suggesting that a carpet could be as potentially dangerous as an ashtray.

Babies crawling and playing on the floor are prone to inhale particles from cigarette toxins in the carpet. Those with respiratory problems like asthma are even more at risk. The cigarette smoke penetrates deep down into carpets not only leaving dangerous toxins but nasty odours too.

Rug Doctor has the technology to clean deep between the carpet fibres. The unique inject, agitate and extract system gives an effective deep down clean to remove cigarette odours and particles from both upholstery and carpets. Rug Doctor Odour Remover contains special enzymatic action attacking the cigarette smoke at its source (Rug Doctor Odour Remover can be used with or without the use of a Rug Doctor carpet cleaning machine).
