Swiffer® Unscented Dry Dusters & Sweepers have become the first dry-dusting cleaners to be Certified by Allergy Standards Ltd for allergen removal
Swiffer Unscented Dry Dusters & Sweepers have become the first dry-dusting cleaners to be Certified asthma & allergy friendly® by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), for allergen removal and trapping. Manufactured by P&G, the Swiffer Sweeper is designed to trap and hold dust from a variety of floor types including wood, ceramic and linoleum. Swiffer Dusters are designed to pick up and trap dust using thousands of flexible fibres which are coated with Dust Lock Adhesive™.
A series of studies were conducted in climate controlled testing chambers. Within these unique chambers, testing assessed the capacity of the products to remove allergens from a number of different surfaces while minimizing the amount of allergen being disturbed into the air. Analysis of the collected samples was carried out using highly sensitive ELISA to measure allergen concentration. The results showed that, as well as the products being able to meet asthma & allergy friendly® Certification criteria, they also outperformed generic dry and wet cloths tested under identical conditions.
As a result of the testing the Swiffer Unscented Dry Dusters and Sweepers are the first products of their type to meet the asthma & allergy friendly®™ Certification Standard for Handheld Dusting Products and Wipes (ASP:09-03).
The standard has been developed by Allergy Standards Ltd, an International Standards and Certification body who founded and operate the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification program worldwide.
