Antimicrobial

An antimicrobial carpet provides the first line of defence against the spread of infection, which is particularly important with the use of carpets within healthcare facilities, schools, hospitality and other institutions where there is a need for treatments or cleaning agents which assist with infection prevention and control.

danfloor believe it’s important to invest time and money into discovering new products, such as antimicrobial carpets that assist with the elimination of such bacterial, viral and fungal growth, which can lead to outbreaks such as MRSA.

We have a fantastic video clip that explains a little more about Bi-Ome® and how it works, or you can read a little more about the treatment and download our useful Bi-Ome® guide below.

THE BENEFITS OF
BI-OME® TECHNOLOGY

Bi-Ome® is a revolutionary technology that guarantees optimum freshness and hygiene for textiles even after intensive use and frequent commercial cleaning.

Bi-Ome®  is a non-migrating antimicrobial coating on the carpet fibres which kills the micro-organisms when they come into contact with the fibre. Bi-Ome® doesn’t lose strength over time and creates an environment to which microorganisms can’t adapt to.

Bi-Ome® is important for anyone needing to eliminate odours and increase health protection. It is ideal for sectors where carpeting is used near or around food and drink, such as in the healthcare and hospitality sectors.

  • 4 log reduction of 99.99% in the presence of harmful micro-organisms including the likes of MRSA and C-Diff.
  • It’s been tested on enveloped viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 which is within the same family of viruses as COVID-19, and has demonstrated that it enhances the deactivation of viruses, on textile products.
  • Long-lasting freshness.
  • Eliminates the smells created by yeast, fungus and bacteria in carpets.
  • Controls or eliminates microbial staining.
  • Eliminates dust mites.
  • Reduces the risk of cross-contamination.

PROVEN
PERFORMANCE

The Bi-Ome® certification stands for over 30 years of superior technical performance in medical goods, consumer products and indoor environments where safety and performance are paramount.

Universally recognised as the best antimicrobial of choice for a variety of uses, it has been tested by the L’Institute Pasteur de Lile and is accepted by regulatory bodies globally. Most importantly, it has been embraced by consumers who have purchased Bi-Ome® protected products from retailers all over the world.

A carpet protected with Bi-Ome® shows consumers that, not only are you using an antimicrobial agent within your finishing products but that you are using the most advanced antimicrobial on the market today.

WHO USES
BI-OME®?

Anyone needing to minimise microbial contamination

The medical industry is challenged by the presence of microorganisms and the negative effects they cause. Cross-contamination, deterioration, defacement and odours are all dramatic effects that occur from microbial contamination. However, in addition to the Healthcare and Medical sectors, it has become more apparent that infection control and minimising the spread of infections is an essential part of today’s interior design schemes.

Non-treated carpets can act as a microbial ‘harbour’ as most offer ideal environments for the proliferation of microorganisms that are harmful to humans. Nosocomial infections are a serious issue for communal healthcare facilities.

In hospitals and healthcare environments preventative measures are used to protect patients and staff from nosocomial infections. However, across Europe, more than 3 million patients develop this kind of infection. The use of carpets treated with Bi-Ome® can help to eliminate the microbes which cause these infections.

For example, the results performed by different universities and independent laboratories in medical environments have shown that Bi-Ome® is a unique technology in controlling microbial growth, even MRSA where it has demonstrated that it can achieve a reduction of 99.99% in MRSA causing bacteria.
