To allay consumer concerns that residential carpeting may harbor bacteria and mold that could pose health problems for their families, carpet manufacturers have developed treatments that safely and naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. One such treatment, known as Silver Release antimicrobial treatment, utilizes the germ-fighting properties of metal ions to prevent bacteria and mold from gaining a foothold in carpeting. In addition, Magic Fresh odor-reducing treatment breaks down odor compounds much in the same way that an open box of baking soda absorbs odors in the refrigerator. It even removes odors that homeowners have grown accustomed to that otherwise go unnoticed As a result, carpeting is as healthy and sweet smelling, as it is beautiful.
