Does anyone get sick from new carpet?
I do and I get a terrible headache
Yeah, I can definetly feel for you I get that way with certain things. Carpet can kind of give me a headache, same with new cars, and a bunch of other smells like that.
People who are very sensitive to dust or new things may develop an allergy, sometimes in the form of a headache.
Yes, you can definitely get sick from new carpet. Many building materials release phemaldihide when they are new. Did you smell the strong chemical smell from the carpet? When you replace carpet or do any remodeling for that matter, it should be done in a season where you will be able to keep the area open to vent ie..leave the windows and doors open for a few days. Some people seem to have no obvious problems from being in these areas closed up. But, the key word is OBVIOUS, there are many things that occur in our body that we are not obvious of. And there are industry rules that keep workers safe in place that produce these products because there is sufficient evidence that these chemicals can make you ill acutely and in the future.
Two things can happen when exposed: Can build up a tolerance OR develop a sensitivity to it. Chemical sniffers in industrial environments that tell you things are 'safe' do not take into account the differences of people's reactions.
I've been in 'sick buildings' before where I developed a 'cold' within one hour inside the building and felt crappy all over for a couple of days. - It was an older building and the vent ducts must have been full of dust mites.
but then on the other had I can handle trichloroethene as if it was water .....
Yes, it is possible to get sick from new carpeting. But it shouldn't take carpets long to off gas. You should wait 2 to 3 days before you can enjoy your carpet.

Why? Why not? /Does anyone further believe that humankind will evolve so that in the near or distant future that a large percentage of people will be able to communicate with each other telepathically? Does anyone contend that telepathic communication will be as normal as talking is presently?
