PEORIA, Ariz. - Oct. 11, 2013 - PRLog -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate people about issues that may impact their health.  Their latest educational video discusses how new and existing carpeting can impact the indoor air quality (IAQ) of a home or other type of building.

Like many other household products and furnishings, new carpeting can be a source of chemical emissions. Carpets can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as can products that accompany carpet installation such as adhesives and padding. Some people report symptoms such as eye, nose and throat irritation; headaches; skin irritations; shortness of breath or cough; and fatigue, which they may associate with new carpet installation.

“Carpeting can also collect chemical and biological pollutants including pesticides, mold, dust mites and other items,”reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video.    We hope this video helps to shed some light on carpeting, its impact on indoor environments and how people can minimize concerns through simple steps.”

This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions, Clark Seif Clark and MBM Insurance Resource Center to name a few.
