No, it is not advisable to shampoo rugs. All-over cleaning can be achieved using a product such as Kobosan Powder or crystalline hardening foam.
This value measures the dust absorption on the highest suction setting on a defined test carpet. It is rated in classes from A to G. A vacuum cleaner rated carpet cleaning performance class A has to be able to suck up 91% of the dust from the carpet. The dust absorption for each classification reduces by 4%, which means that a class C vacuum cleaner will only reliably absorb 83% of the dust, and a class G less than 71%.
Textile floor covering has many advantages over hard flooring. The acoustic properties of carpeting improve the overall room acoustics. A textile floor absorbs all kinds of noises, including impact sound, much better than hard flooring, and also – unlike the latter – does not reflect it. Another advantage is that carpet absorbs fine dust. This reduces the amount of dust particles in the air, which is why textile floors are also ideal for allergy-sufferers.
Responsibility towards customers, staff and the location is the essence of the long-lived programme at Vorwerk flooring. It includes protecting the natural resources, environmentally and energy-friendly products and production methods as well as social responsibility. We sum up this concept under the term “Vorwerk Life Balance”. In order to achieve the maximum transparency, we regularly undergo voluntary checks by independent test institutes that go far beyond those required by the law. The result: Vorwerk floor coverings currently bear all the main ecological product labels, numerous internationally renowned signets such as HQE, Green Label Plus, Greenguard, Blue Angel, and social and health-relevant certificates.
