The foam spray can cause damage to carpet and tiles, causing damage to the walls, ceiling, roof, and floors, and could even lead to the collapse of the building.
According to a study conducted by The Economist and the British Geological Survey, more than half of the 1,000 properties in England that received carpet cleaner from the manufacturer in 2013 had cracks, frays, or leaks.
A second study found that about half of all residential properties were damaged by carpet cleaner.
The company said it had removed carpet cleaner in a “small number” of homes.
The government is currently reviewing whether it should ban the use of carpet cleaner to prevent fires, according to the Daily Mail.
The Home Office said in a statement that it is not considering a ban on the use, but has asked the manufacturer to review the evidence.
The foam spray is sprayed in a sprayer at the factory where it is manufactured.
It has been linked to fires in a number of homes in England, including one in which a child was burned.
The UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change said it has already taken steps to address the foam spraying and that the company has been asked to improve its processes.
The firm was founded in 1999 and its products have been used in over 30 countries, according the company’s website.
