Have you ever heard of MRSA, E-Coli and Staphylococcus Aureus? Well, they are some of the uninvited guests who live among us, from the family famously known as Bacteria. Unfortunately, some of these guests have unpleasant effects – like painful skin boils, gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, furuncles and carbuncles. And one major area where they gather is the walls of our homes. Scary? Don’t worry – we’re presenting a solution.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful, we thought, if a paint could not only beautify your walls but also purify them, protecting against harmful bacteria?
Consider that the CDC says most household surfaces such as appliances, computers and other items humans use and touch every day often are laden with as much as 60 times the microbial matter found on a toilet seat.
It is important that hospitals, schools and food industries take extra measures, such as antimicrobial paint, to keep hospitals-schools as safe and clean as possible. Antimicrobial paint is a specially formulated paint that contains an antimicrobial agent and actually diminishes the ability of microorganisms to grow. Antimicrobial paints not only prevent bacteria from growing but they also prevent mould and mildew growth. Anti-microbial paints help prevent bacteria growth while still maintaining a beautiful atmosphere with a highly durable surface that can withstand the inevitable wear and tear that occurs in a hospital. These antimicrobial materials that are embedded within the paint not only reduce surface microbes but airborne contaminants as well and reduce 99.9% of all common pathogens. The anti-microbial protection will last as long as the expected lifespan of the paint product. Anti-microbial paints should always be applied properly by a professional commercial painting team. Professional commercial painters know how to properly apply these specialty paints in medical, hospital and other important environments.
