Carpets for Kids is the industry leader in high quality, educational area rugs. Founded in 1991, CFK is a major supplier of educational children's rugs to daycares and schools across the country.
The Antibacterial treatment is a durable "locked-in chemistry" that is incorporated into the backing composite of Carpet for Kids rugs to minimize product deterioration and odors caused by microbial activity.
This floor-covering enhancement means that any spills penetrating below the face of the carpet will come in contact with the antibacterial treatment, minimizing the opportunity for product-deteriorating microbial activity in the backing or beneath the carpet.
The chemistry has been tested for effectiveness and safety. In addition, this antibacterial protection remains active for the life of the carpet under normal use conditions for commercial carpet as long as routinely accepted maintenance practices are followed.

Indoor Air Quality
Carpets for Kids, as a major supplier of children's Educational Area Rugs to daycares and schools across the country, is concerned about health related issues and specifically those concerning indoor air quality (IAQ).
The following is a statement from the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) concerning indoor air quality with specific reference to allergens:
"Carpet: An IAQ Benefit* - There are several ways in which carpet can actually help improve air quality in schools. With hard-surface flooring, dust, allergens, and other particulates will settle to the floor and collect there. Since school children move through hallways in large groups, they are likely to stir up these particulates and cause them to become suspended in the air at regular intervals during the day. Carpet has many millions of fibers, however, which can keep these particles from being constantly airborne by trapping and holding them until they can be extracted by vacuuming and cleaning.
In addition, carpet itself requires few chemicals to be used in its cleaning and upkeep. As a result, fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted into classrooms and hallways during carpet cleaning."
