May 14, 2007


A study sponsored by the CRI evaluating three carpet cleaning methods’ ability to clean moldy carpet found that Thermo Accelerated Nano Crystal Sanitation technology from Advanced Vapor Technologies performed better in removing Cladosporium sphaerospermum than the others.

“Steam was significantly better than the other two methods with 99% efficiency in removal of Cladosporium sphaerospermum from wetted carpet after 24 hours and 30 days incubation time, with 92% efficiency after seven days,” the study said.
