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, which assist with the elimination of such bacterial, viral and fungal growth, which can lead to outbreaks such as MRSA.

We have a fantastic brief 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 guide below.

 

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.
