Yes, it is potentially a problem. All carpets come in chemicals like formaldehyde and will off-gas those chemicals for a while when new. There is not much you can do unless you decide to choose a hard surface floor. Hopefully, you won't have an issue. 

There is no way we could have carpet here with skunks. Mine are all convinced it is the best way to wipe after they go to the bathroom. My throw rugs get washed so often, they wear out.

I have a call into the manufacturer to see what i can do to reduce the chemicals. If nothing , he will have to stay upstairs till manufacturer assures me enough time has passed for it to be safe. Thank you Maria !
