In consideration that you aired the room out & cleaned the carpet quickly & you have not experienced any bad reactions you are probably fine. However, if you experience nausea & vomiting, pain in your belly area, a sweet taste in your mouth, a feeling of drunkenness, drowsiness, stupor, lack of coordination or difficulty breathing please call a poison control center immediately.
