Bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi can be discovered in every environment and are part of normal everyday life. Even in the cleanest environments, many kinds of microbes will begin to multiply on surfaces and sometimes reach harmful levels. If these contaminated surfaces are touched by individuals or contact everyday products, the transfer of microbes begins, resulting in cross-contamination. Pathogenic bacteria, such as MRSA, STAPH and E.coli can be spread via cross-contamination, which can lead to infection and illness in humans and animals.
Bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi can also build-up on products, making them unclean, unhygienic, or discolored. Antimicrobial additive applications provide permanent surface protection, continuously working 24/7 to inhibit the growth of microbes which can cause sickness, stains, odors or declination of products.
