Product Spotlight: Effervescent with Microban
Those suffering from allergies and asthma often avoid carpet entirely due to misconceptions about allergies. Effervescent with Microban® Antimicrobial Technology is part of the Clean Home Destination carpet collection that is taking the lead in setting the record straight. Not only is it easy to clean, it also helps keep itself clean. We’ll briefly explore its benefits here.
Microban® Antimicrobial Technology
Microban is a special antimicrobial treatment used on Clean Home Destination carpet. This is not to be confused with antibacterial, which means it just protects against bacteria and viruses. Microban creates a hostile environment for all microorganisms, including mold and mildew. So, Clean Home Destination carpet with Microban helps maintain a germ-free environment between cleanings. Fewer microbes also means less product deterioration over time.
Another benefit of Microban: less odors. If you’ve ever smelled an odor that didn’t seem to have a source, it’s often coming from the floors. This is especially true for older carpet, in which spills and dander could become embedded. If enough dirt and moisture became embedded under the carpet, it would promote the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. These, in turn, produce odors that seem to be without a source.
Since Microban creates a hostile environment for micro-organisms, it’s more difficult for these to spread to begin with.
Effervescent incorporates ComfortSoft® SD to improve both style and comfort. It is made of polyester, a soft fiber that helps improve r-value (the measure of a room’s insulation). It features a suede-like texture and a plush, soft feel.
Solution Dyed or “SD” is a manufacturing process that melts the polymer chips used to create the carpet, then vibrant color dyes are blended into the liquid polymer solution. In other words, the color is actually infused into the fiber itself, rather than surrounding the outside. This means that Effervescent (and other SD carpets) will maintain its color even after wearing.
