· This product has the property of being antibacterial. · Various kinds of carpet are woven in the several dimensions using high-tech apparatuses. · Carpets are made in several designs and colors. · The fibers of this carpet are made of acrylic. · Warp and woof of this carpet are made of cotton and polyester. The antibacterial activity of this product has been assessed according to INSO 11070 (Textiles- Determination of antibacterial activity of textile products). The results of the test are: Antibacterial activity is an indicator of the product ability to eliminate bacteria. It is obtained by comparison of bacteria number present on control and nanometric samples after 24 hours’ exposure. According to the standard, When the antibacterial activity of the product is between 2 and 3, the effectiveness is good. If the antibacterial activity is greater than 3, the effectiveness is intense and strong.
Carpet is one of the most important parts of the Iranian's house interior decoration. Because of the food and contaminant accumulation in the texture of carpet, its fibers are appropriate places for bacterias' growth. These bacterias and microorganisms are the pivotal causes of diseases, skin infections, and the bad smell of the carpet. Thus, using the antibacterial materials which lead to decreasing the activity of these inappropriate factors could have an impressive effect on the health and hygiene houses and living environment.
Nowadays, nanotechnology has had lots of progress in the way of removing these bacterias. Carpet fibers are steeped to nanomaterials after weaving that could make the antibacterial property in carpet wrap and woof. Using this method cleans the carpets of high commute places such as mosques, and schools. It also can increase the cleanliness of the houses' environment and the health level of society.
