new carpeting

by Krystal Adkins
(Northwood Iowa)

Due to the recent flooding in our area we had to pull out all of our old carpet in the basement. My question is I was looking at new carpet that has the ECO label, is it safe if my birds are upstairs and all the windows are open and fans blowing to install this carpet with them in the house? We have a meyer's parrot, LSC Cockatoo and Amazon. I can be reached at

Also the carpet people are saying the carpet would be tacked down so no chemicals under the carpet during installation. Thank you Krystal Adkins

Carpet Safe?
by: The Vet

I am not familiar with the ECO brand, but if they report that there are no chemicals such a formaldehyde, etc., then they may be safe, but I would not take the chance.
