DESSO Carpet Makes Air Cleaner0

I get kind of grossed out when stuff gets trapped in my carpet. On any given day, I can find old dog food, Play-Doh, Doritos and other debris stuck to my socks. Ew. I don’t encourage or condone this kind of funk, but apparently, DESSO does.

The carpet manufacturer has announced a new type of carpet that actually sucks in some of that yuck, making the air much healthier. According to the announcement, AirMaster® carpet is actually eight times more effective than hard floors for trapping dust and particle matter. Who knew hard floors could suck in anything? Or maybe that’s the point – they don’t.  In my house, dog hair blows around the hardwood floor like a crop of tumbleweeds.

Of course, having all of that stuff in the air is also bad for your health.

“Miniscule dust particles end up in the lungs, the smallest particles even in the blood stream, and this could have serious consequences for human health,” says Alexander Collot d’Escury, DESSO’s CCO.

Naturally, if you spend a lot of time indoors, this could be a problem. And who doesn’t? Working, watching TV, sleeping, and even exercising indoors could have bad effects, depending on how clean – or dirty –  the carpet is.

Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t work out (in case you were looking for someone to say that). Instead, start hounding your employer, apartment owner, or other favorite manager to look into it. For now, the AirMaster  comes in a variety of colors and is available for commercial installations only.
