HealthGuard fabrics to help reduce asthma & allergy triggers

Warwick Australia a company that has been providing quality fabrics that have met world standards since 1966 offered the new HealthGuard range of fabrics to help reduce asthma and allergy triggers.

Worldwide, 12% suffered from asthma while 40% had allergies and other allergens. According to the book, “Indoor allergens are a primary cause of asthma: Asthma and the environment”, by Smith and Custovic, one of the primary causes of asthma was increased exposure to indoor allergens. These allergens usually gathered in the decorative fabrics of furniture coverings. With the reduction of indoor allergens, people were able to reduce the development of asthma and allergies. Based on this, Warwick came up with the revolutionary HealthGuard fabric.

To help individuals suffering from asthma and allergies, Warwick introduced the HealthGuard fabric to avoid triggering asthma or allergies. Individuals who were sensitive to allergens were able to avoid as many allergens as possible with the HealthGuard fabric made by Warwick.

The HealthGuard fabric made by Warwick used high performance fabrics. By designing the fabric to maintain long-term protection against allergens such as dust mites, molds, and bacteria, Warwick was able to develop decorative fabrics that had a scentless surface.

In March 2007, the collection of Warwick HealthGuard fabrics was accepted by the Sensitive Choice program implemented by the National Asthma Council Australia. By being accepted in the program, Warwick was able to provide home owners better choices regarding decorative fabrics that reduced allergy and asthma triggers.
