Like all Resista brands, Resista Refresh is made with advanced fiber technology that repels liquids for easy clean up. Resista Refresh has two additional features, ActiFresh and Silver Shield, to help improve the air quality of your home.
ActiFresh works around the clock to actively neutralize odors in your home.
- How is ActiFresh applied?
At the end of the manufacturing process ActiFresh is introduced into the fibers of Resista Refresh. The carpet is then heated to enormous temperatures which activate the ActiFresh. The ActiFresh will remain for the life of the carpet.
- How does ActiFresh work?
Odor molecules will come into contact with the carpet at which time ActiFresh components break down the molecules and convert them to harmless gases.
Silver Shield is an antimicrobial carpet treatment that safely and naturally inhibits the growth of odor and stain causing bacteria, mold and mildew. Silver Shield has genuine silver particles which kill odor and stain causing bacteria in your home.
- What does Silver Shield do?
- It inhibits the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria, mold and mildew
- Because it’s bonded to the carpet fibers it will never wash or wear off for the life of the carpet
- It’s completely safe because it made from naturally occurring elements - silver and zinc.
- How does Silver Release work?
- The key to its effectiveness is a unique, balanced combination of silver and either zinc or copper ions. The process takes the same moisture that the microbes use to live and instead, uses it to initiate the release of ions from the fibers. These ions then bind to the microbes, inactivating them.
