Question about Bleach and Chlorination

Is it possible for a chlorine bleach (such as Clorox) to form chlorinated organics that it comes in contact with?  As an example:  if I spill some clorox type bleach on a synthetic fiber rug or a plastic surface, is there any reaction by which it can create a chlorinated organic compound if not wiped away or rinsed off?
