Many people will find it disturbing to know that the methods used to stop one hazard (fire, in this case) may actually lead to serious health problems in the long run. Some environmentalists also argue that flame retardant chemicals actually have little or no benefits. These green advocates claim that many fire retardants are actually ineffective in preventing combustion, but emit toxic gases and soot when they’re set aflame.
Consumers who want to avoid potentially harmful chemicals in their furniture, particularly their beddings and mattresses, should be aware of the materials used in the products they plan to purchase. Thankfully, there are stores which sell bedroom furniture in Sacramento, CA that make use only of organic, non-toxic materials.
