HARNESSING THE PROVEN ANTI-BACTERIAL POWER OF SILVER. SILVERCARE FROM BELGOTEX FLOORS NATURALLY FIGHTS BACTERIA AND DUSTMITES USING SILVER IONS. THIS IS A NON-TOXIC, HYPO-ALLERGENIC.
HOW DOES SILVERCARE ™ WORK?
SilverCare™ is applied to the carpets during the manufacturing process, penetrating deeply into the carpet and coating the fibres with a long-lasting protective shield.
Once installed in your home, the humidity of the room causes the silver ions to be released very slowly to naturally fight against bacteria, dust mites and unpleasant odours throughout the life of the carpet.
SilverCare™ works by fighting bacteria and unpleasant odours that are linked to fermentation, decomposition caused by certain bacteria, and the activity of certain germs, like staphylococcus aureus and klebsiella pneumoniae. Silver ions may also help in reducing the longevity of dust mite allergens, tackling dust mites indirectly by cutting off their food supply.
Silver ions are highly active, penetrating bacterial membranes rapidly. They interact with the enzymes and other proteins in bacteria, causing cellular disruption and loss of stability. Silver ions also interact with the bacterial cell wall and bind to the bacteria's DNA and RNA, preventing the bacteria from replicating.
NATURAL, SAFE, EFFECTIVE – WHY SILVER IS SUPERIOR
In comparison to other antibacterial agents, silver has the advantage of being effective on a broad range of germs, even in small concentrations and over a long period of time.
In fact, tests have shown that silver has a proven broad-spectrum antiseptic and germicidal effect, with the ability to sterilise over 650 types of bacteria and disease-causing organisms.
In addition, silver ions are totally non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
IMPROVING YOUR INDOOR AIR QUALITY AND FIGHTS ALLERGIES
Almost 30 % of the population today is affected by allergic rhinitis, as compared to 3.8 % in 1968. Today's lifestyle is a major cause of this increase. The appearance of new allergens (for example from exotic plants and fruits), spending long periods of time in non-aerated buildings, vehicle pollution, passive smoking, stress, vitamin deficiencies and obesity are all contributing factors.
Since we spend up to 70% of our time at home, improving indoor air quality in our home should be a priority for anyone concerned about allergies. A SilverCare™ carpet from Belgotex Carpets® has proven antibacterial properties and fights dust mites and odours, building on the proven dust-trapping properties of carpeting to greatly improve indoor air quality.
It's the natural way to bring relief for allergy sufferers and protect small children and the elderly from respiratory problems
