ASP:09-01

airmid healthgroup has been selected for data verification and certification testing for the asthma and allergy friendly™ certification program in America, Canada and the UK.

Non-disinfecting hard surface cleaning products that are certified asthma & allergy friendly™ are tested according to ASP:09:01. The certification process uses an algorithm of proprietary and recognized scientific techniques to assess cleaning products for their impact on allergen, the immediate environment (where particles are concerned), as well as on the end-user. Product samples that pass certification testing are granted a certificate stating that the particular non-disinfecting hard surface spray cleaning product meets the requirements for the asthma & allergy friendly™ ASP:09:01 Certification Standard.

Non-disinfecting hard surface cleaning products are subjected to allergen, particle and chemical testing to ensure that the cleaning product reduces total allergen burden of a hard surface while not contributing to an increase of airborne particulate matter. Further to this, the chemical profile of the cleaning product is assessed.

The asthma & allergy friendly™ certification mark is awarded to those cleaning products that have been scientifically demonstrated to contribute to the goal of allergen reduction.

The Non-disinfecting Hard Surface Cleaning Products Standard includes:

  • Evaluating the capability of the cleaning product to remove bio-allergen from a defined surface
  • Assessment of airborne allergen and particulate matter following cleaning
  • Determination of toxicological profile of cleaning product
  • Assessment of cleaning product where emission of volatiles and particle analysis are concerned.

All certified asthma & allergy friendly™ Non-disinfecting Hard Surface Cleaning Products carry a unique certification code.
