Desso, an international carpet manufacturer, has launched a next-generation new carpet – AirMaster – that cleans indoor air. The carpet, primarily aimed at offices, hospitals, schools and other public buildings will provide important health benefits than other flooring solutions. Independent tests have confirmed that AirMaster is eight times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than hard flooring and four times more effective than standard carpeting. The carpet also released 80% of trapped dust during vacuum cleaning which is 16% more than a standard carpet. The carpet considerably reduces the amount of dust and particulate matter floating in the air. It reduces the incidence of potentially harmful allergy-producing particles by safely trapping and immobilising them. It guarantees a significant improvement in indoor air quality. Based on patented technology, the carpet is specially designed to trap a higher percentage of dust particles than conventional carpet.
