tips for eliminating new carpet smell?
I live in an apartment and the carpet (which is actually a year old) still reeks! I have gotten the carpet steam cleaned and have been airing out the room for days, but it still smells like new carpet. I've done some research and found that it most likely comes from the glue or backing underneath the carpet. I am sensitive to this smell and it makes me wheezy and have a sore throat. Does anyone know of anything that has worked for this situation? Do you think that getting some area rugs to cover up the carpet would cover up the odor?
