Is there any long term health concern for Demon WP soaking into carpet?
My apartment floor is covered in carpet. The roaches are seen along the baseboard crawling out of the carpet. I will try to lift the edge of the carpet as much as possible to spray Demon WP into the baseboard crevice. However it's likely some of the spray will be absorbed by the carpet. Is this a health concern for us living in the apartment?
No, there is no health concern. You should apply Demon WP around the perimeter of the rooms and try to keep it confined to on top and underneath baseboards as much as possible. However, even though some will get onto the carpet near the baseboard this should not be an issue. When mixed with water and applied properly, products like Demon are only strong enough to kill small insects and nothing else.
