Microban: Trendy Carpet for a Healthier Home
These days, we're all looking for ways to live a little healthier. Did you know that your home's floors can play an important role? In this post, we'll discuss how Microban can improve the air quality, healthfulness, and style of your home.
Without regular cleanings, older carpets were a haven for bacterial growth. This was especially true in high traffic areas or in places where spills weren't cleaned right away. Unfortunately, this bacterial growth is often difficult to detect.
Microban carpet is changing this. Its antimicrobial technology provides a hostile environment for bacteria, mold, and other harmful pathogens. While it is still important to clean your carpet regularly, Microban will keep it fresher between cleanings.
One extra benefit to preventing microbial growth is the suppression of odors. Odors originating from (or, worse, under) carpet are some of the hardest to find and clean. By resisting microbial growth, Microban carpets fight odors before they start.
Have you ever noticed that carpet sometimes fades and loses its color over time? This happens because light and regular wear remove dye from the carpet over time, robbing it of its color.
Solution dyed carpet actually has the color built into the fabric itself. This prevents traffic and exposure from removing the color since it doesn't just cover the outer layer. It's the method of choice for all Microban carpet lines. So, you'll never have to worry about your carpet losing its beauty.
Microban carpet is designed to maintain its color, texture, and germ-fighting properties for the life of the carpet. All Microban lines are backed by the following warranties:
Lifetime Limited Abrasive Wear Warranty
Lifetime Limited Fade Resistance Warranty
Lifetime Limited Stain Resistance Warranty (includes resistance to pet urine stains)
10 Year Limited Texture Retention Warranty
10 Year Limited Manufacturing Defects Warranty
