Formica is not bad.  It is not conductive, but it won't generate any  

Touch a big piece of metal first, or something grounded, and go for it.

Better yet, use a wrist strap.

Formica, or any other laminate, or even wood is not a problem.

The carpet is likely a problem, especially if it is synthetic or wool.
