How does the new FootMat Hygiene+ work?
Hygiene+ is a game changer. In addition to the high quality materials and construction, FootMat Hygiene+ is treated with BI-OME, an antimicrobial and virus reducing technology. Even if you are not actively cleaning, the doormat remains clean on a microbial level and the technology remains active throughout the lifespan of the mat.
What is BI-OME treatment?
BI-OME is a biocide agent that has a durable viral reducing effect on surfaces such as entrance mats. The treatment with BI-OME can reduce the viral activity of enveloped viruses in a time span of 2 hours, while the half life (time it takes for 50% of the viruses not to become infectious) is about 4 hours for untreated surfaces.
What happens if the doormat is cleaned or machine washed?
You can clean FootMat Hygiene+ like any other doormat, you can even machine wash it. The treatment with BI-OME stays on the fibres and remains active, this means you can wash it on lower temperatures to save energy and still have a doormat that is clean on microbial levels.
BI-OME is a registered and tested treatment
The BI-OME treatment is registered with OEKO-TEX® to guarantee maximum consumer safety and BPR (PT2, PT7, PT9) registered with ECHA (European Chemicals Agency).
