Given the current corona virus pandemic we have seen an increase in customers asking about the anti bacterial qualities of blind fabrics.
Specifically relating to hospitals and schools, but more recently from customers who are looking for hygienic blinds for their homes.
We have a range of fabrics for Vertical and Roller Blinds in both plain and patterned and also blackout that have been treated with ULTRA FRESH.
Ultra fresh provides permanent protection from bacteria, fungi, mildew and mould and it also kills MRSA.
The Ultra Fresh treated fabrics are designed for hospitals, schools and commercial buildings.
You are probably right in thinking that protection against MRSA is not that important for the blinds in your home, the Ultra Fresh treatment also protects against the effects of dust mites which are proven to be a significant trigger for asthma, rhinitis and eczema which could be very relevant to some members of your family.
There is now a much wider choice of hygienic fabrics that would suit your home decor as well as commercial, education and healthcare sectors.
Another really nice feature of these fabrics is that they will keep their antibacterial properties even after being washed.
Another range of treated fabrics again available for both Vertical and Roller Blinds is Pollergen.
The Pollergen fabrics are very close to my heart as I am one of the 16,000,000 who suffer with hayfever.
If you are anything like me then you have to sleep with the windows closed even in the height of summer.
The Pollergen fabrics have Allergy UK’s seal of approval.
The active ingredient in all Pollergen fabrics captures and then neutralises the pollen and thereby helping to reduce the hayfever symptoms.
So as you can see modern blind fabrics not only look great but have many hidden benefits that can enhance the health and wellbeing of your family.
I hope this information has helped answer some of your questions around Hygienic blinds, and a trip to your local blind showroom would be well worth it, so you are not just buying blinds for your home you are buying better blinds for your home.
