Cleaning and Care
Yes; thanks to their particulate-binding properties, our carpets are ideal for allergy-sufferers. Vorwerk was the first carpet manufacturer to have its floor coverings tested by the TÜV Nord for allergenic substances, and they instantly passed all these tests. In 1996 Vorwerk Teppichwerke was the first company to receive the TÜV seal “Suitable for allergy-sufferers”. Since then, all our products have been regularly tested for allergenic substances.
It is also a fact that rooms with smooth floors contain twice the quantity of fine dust particles as rooms with carpets do. This has been confirmed in a study that was carried out by the German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB) and the Association for Environmental and Interior Analytics (GUI). The fine quality fibres of Vorwerk carpeting bind the dust and greatly reduce the rising up and swirling around of fine dust particles.
