Boyteks Proactive against allergens
Bacteria, domestic dust, mites – it is not only those suffering from allergies who consider it important to ban these unwelcome guests from their homes. “Carpets catch the allergens in their fibres and thus keep them out of the atmosphere we breathe”, according to Boyteks. This positive effect they plan to intensify with a new generation of carpets. The proactive technology which the manufacturer is already using in mattresses is based on probiotic bacteria. The “friendly” micro-organisms starve harmful bacteria, fungi and house-dust mites. And so the anti-bacterial proactive carpets are said to not only counter the allergens biologically, they are also supposed to generate fresher air in the room. According to Boyteks probiotic bacteria are harmless for human beings: they are already being used as a natural weapon against harmful micro-organisms in foodstuffs.
