Home Depot - Carpet Made Us Sick
HEMPSTEAD, NEW YORK -- My carpet was installed today in the dining room and I am most unhappy. Although I wanted the stairs and hall also the carpet was so expensive I could only afford the 14 x 14 dining room. It has a terrible odor which I think is mildew. When I cleaned a spot to see if this was true, the carpet kept shedding. Everyone has headaches and are sick from the smell. It's supposed to be polyester and poly doesn't shed. I will call the store and maybe the health department Monday. I never got the final bill, I've been overcharged ($567 after a 10% off promotion and refund of my 35.00 deposit and the installers didn't have a copy of whatever they had me sign. The salesman sold me a 12ft carpet which had to be patched! The contract doesn't tell me who to contact if there is a problem with the carpet.
