Clean air is of vital importance The air that we breathe has a crucial effect on our health and well-being. Since we spend on average more than 90% of our time indoors1), the air quality inside is of utmost importance. The presence and size of particulate matter (PM) or fine dust is a determining factor in air quality and is directly linked to potential health problems2). Once inhaled, these particles can contribute to the spread of microbial contaminants, such as mould, pollen and allergenes3). In addition, they can affect the heart and lungs and cause serious physiological problems (e.g....

What is particulate matter? PM 2.5 <2.5 µm in diameter Human Hair 70 µm average diameter PM 10 <10 µm in diameter 90 µm in diameter Fine Beach Sand Particulate matter, also known as particle pollution or PM, is a mixture of extremely small particles. The size of particles is directly linked to their potential for causing health problems. The smaller these particles are, the more hazardous they are to your health. Particulate matter can be grouped into two categories: Inhalable particles, with an aerodynamic diameter of up to 10 μm (all smaller particles are included). Particles of this size...

It can travel all the way to the alveoli, 10 Particulate matter enters our respiratory (lung) system through the nose and throat. causing lung and heart problems and delivering harmful chemicals to the blood system. 11

The essential role of DESSO AirMaster® According to a study performed by the German Allergy and Asthma Association (DAAB)5), it is proven that the burden from fine dust is dramatically reduced when using carpet, as opposed to hard flooring. With the introduction of DESSO AirMaster® this functionality is taken to the next level. Its patented technology has been specially developed to capture and retain hazardous particulate matter. In fact, DESSO AirMaster® is 8 times more effective in capturing and retaining fine dust than hard flooring and 4 times more effective than standard carpet...

TNO study confirms previous findings Dutch research agency TNO has rounded off an exploratory study11) into the relationship between particulate matter in the indoor air and the presence of a soft or hard floor covering in the rooms in question. One of the findings of the study was that textile floor covering absorbs more particulates from the air than a smooth surface. This is thanks to the larger micro-surface of such floor coverings and better contact between their surface and the air. As a result, the presence of textile floor covering can limit the concentration of airborne particulate...
