Caution! Being Invisible Doesn’t Mean It Doesn’t Exist
People consider as carpets contain all kind of stains, allergens and bacteria and they are always dirty and bad for people with asthma or allergies. Hard surfaced floors are better solution or are they? Dust, pollens and other particles on hard surfaces are constantly moving into the air. While carpets work like passive air filters that can trap all kind of particles. Which is better, dirty carpets or airborned particullers? Modern production techniques also enhance carpets with noise reduction, insulation, stain resistance, softness, cooling effect. Isn’t that magic? A new era of carpets is laying the ground for the health of all of us.
Boyteks set out to develop probiotic technology for use in carpets. It is completely natural and effective protection against hazardous organisms. This technology called as “Proactive”.
Boyteks Proactive Carpet Advantages
- Unlike ordinary antibacterial methods, it is a completely natural application.
- Provides natural protection by effectively preventing the growth of hazardous bacteria, fungi and dust mites.
- Helps to minimize the allergic effects of dust mites.
- Helps reduce the incidence of unwanted odors caused by bacterias.
- Entirely harmless for human health.
In 2005, results of a study conducted by the DAAB (German Allergy and Asthma Society) were published in the German Magazine ALLERGIE Konkret. The article outlined the specifics of the study, and highlighted the message that carpet actually improves air quality:
"The core result of the study is, however, clear: In a room with a bare floor, the risk of more airborne fine particulate rises, while the use of carpeting minimizes this risk."
Most people understand that carpet holds allergens such as dust, dander, hair, etc. But instead of being a drawback to carpet, that is actually a huge advantage, especially to those who are sensitive to such allergens.
The same allergens on a hard surface floor, such as hardwood or vinyl flooring, are free to move around. As the air stirs, caused by a breeze through an open window or even just people walking around, the dust, hair, and everything else on the floor gets blown up into the air, where they are then breathed in by those in the home.
By contrast with carpet holds onto the allergens and does not release them into the air, thereby trapping them where they cannot be inhaled. Thus, the air quality in carpeted areas is actually better than that of non-carpeted areas.
