Fabrictech: Allergens nothing to sneeze at

Mattress and pillow protection supplier Fabrictech International sponsored a seminar on bedroom allergens and health in August as part of the Las Vegas Market’s continuing “One Good World Series” of seminars and presentations. The series was established in 2010 and focuses on health and sustainability issues in the home furnishings industry.

Sean Bergman, vice president of sales and marketing for the Cedar Grove, N.J.–based company, spoke about allergies and asthma triggers in bedrooms, citing a wealth of existing research.
Fifty–five percent of American children have some type of allergy and 20 million Americans have dust mite allergies, Bergman said.

Retailers can assist consumers in addressing indoor allergens and disturbed sleep by carrying mattress and pillow protection products. Such accessories also help supplement ticket sales and increase dealer margins, Bergman said.
