June 21, 2010

WAALWIJK, Netherlands, June 18 (UPI) -- A new type of carpet not only softens footsteps but helps clean the air as well, officials of a carpet maker in the Netherlands said.

Desso says its new carpet, the AirMaster, significantly reduces the amount of dust and particulate matter floating in the air. The carpet, based in patented technology, is designed to trap a higher percentage of dust particles than conventional carpet and flooring. From UPI.
