Direct action against dustmites


Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Flooring manufacturer Bonar Floors has highlighted the role its Flotex floorcovering can play in the healthcare sector by playing a prominent role during the British Allergy Foundation¹s (BAF) “Indoor Allergy Week”. Bonar Floors¹ “Ditch the Dust Mite” campaign saw a six foot tall “dust mite” picketing Bonar Floors¹ offices in Derbyshire to promote awareness of the misery caused by allergens and the part that flooring can play in minimising symptoms. The larger-than-life dust mite was miffed that Flotex, which says it is the only textile flooring to gain the British Allergy Foundation¹s seal of approval, makes dust mites homeless in hospitals and care homes, as the microscopic pests find it impossible to gain a foothold. Bonar Floors¹ marketing manager Stuart White, who squared up to the dust mite during the campaign, said the serious point was that millions of people suffered from allergies, and that floor coverings, particularly Flotex, had a key role to play in reducing symptoms.
