Even when careful precautions are taken, such as airing only in the early morning hours, allergens such as pollen, mould spores or bacteria do not stop at the front door and find their way indoors.
Special robot vacuum cleaners can remove allergens from floors, surfaces and, to a certain extent, the air in the room, so that people with allergic rhinoconjunctivitis or allergic asthma suffer significantly less from the symptoms of the disease.
The European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) certifies allergy friendly robot vacuum cleaners if they achieve a measurable reduction in indoor allergen exposure with everyday use and safely contain the allergens they collect.
The ECARF Seal of Quality is awarded if the following criteria are met. The criteria reflect the principle that lower allergen exposure is generally beneficial.
