Moved - house has faint new carpet smell

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I moved to our new house which had new carpet put in about 2.5 months ago or so.  When we first saw the house now about 2 mo ago I could def. smell the carpet.   Now for the most part the carpet smell is gone but every blue moon I get a very FAINT smell of it when I enter the house.  It honestly seems to be only our room downstairs which has a different carpet.  It is not overwhelming at all and in fact most people dont even smell it.  I do have a crazy strong sense of smell.  The upstairs and living is a different carpet and it doesn't smell to me at all and never did.  

Wondering what you guys would advice.  I am airing out, every couple of days plan on getting some plants and considering doing the AFM carpet sealing thing.  Do I need to test the air?  Do I need to freak out?   It is not a new house - thankfully because if just the carpet bothers me I can't imagine coping with all new materials new smells.   Some days the smell is totally gone somedays it's there a tiny bit.  No headaches or other problems though.  It just bugs me that we have been here for a month and sometimes I can still faintly smell it.

I would just keep airing it out if you can.

Thanks so much!  I will continue to do that as soon as the terribly cold temperatures lift - I will go back to airing out.  Once I am in the house I can't smell it at all. It is just that initial step in the house.  My friend said it smell like clean - not like chemicals.  Let's hope.
