Antibacterial Air Filters for Refrigerators: Every Day Care
According to research by Which?, seven out of ten fridges contain harmful bacteria. Susceptible areas include the vegetable drawer, bottom shelf (where meat is typically stored), and outer door handle. The 2019 study revealed that bacteria are likely to proliferate in a fridge as a result of contact with unwashed food produce, incorrect temperature settings, and/or cleaning lapses. Without appropriate interventions, these bacteria can thrive considerably, posing cross-contamination risks to food items and key surfaces within the fridge.
In a bid to offer consumers a happier and more sustainable food journey, Whirlpool® has developed a range of antibacterial refrigerator air filters enhanced with built-in Microban® technology. Microban® is integrated into the filter at the stage of manufacture and helps fight the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the surface of the filter.
Key Benefits of Whirlpool® Air Filters Enhanced With Microban® Technology
- Foul-smelling odors in the fridge are minimized by up to 90% after just three hours
- The risk of bacterial cross-contamination from surface to surface in the fridge is reduced
- The fridge stays fresher and smelling better for longer
- The built-in antimicrobial properties remain active for the expected lifetime of the filter
