February 11, 2010
EXTON, PA — Endust® Free Dusting and Cleaning Spray has become the first non-disinfecting hard surface spray cleaning product to earn the "asthma & allergy friendly™" certification mark from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL), according to a press release.
According to the release, Endust is the first fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic dusting and cleaning product proven to reduce allergens both on surfaces and in air, including up to 92 percent more dust mite allergens than dry dusting without a cleaning product.
Stan Stoltzfus, director of marketing for Endust Free, said: "We know consumers are concerned about health and wellness, and we hope this mark, which appears on the packaging, will give people with indoor respiratory issues even more piece of mind when using our product."
Products awarded the certification mark must be scientifically proven meet the strict standards set by the AAFA, which are available online, the release stated.
According to the release, dusting sprays that are effective against indoor irritants like house dust and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), are fragrance and hypo-allergenic free and reduce lingering mist or overspray can improve indoor air quality and reduce chemicals that can trigger allergic reactions.
The AAFA is a national nonprofit organization that fights asthma and allergic diseases, the release added.
