Myth 1. Antimicrobial wall cladding is not as effective as traditional cleaning.  Unlike antimicrobial wall cladding, cleaning is a short-term and temporary measure which requires regularity and exceptional levels of attention to detail. Human error, time restraints and budget cuts can all pose a threat to the level of hygiene upheld by traditional cleaning. After […]

Myth 2: Antimicrobial wall cladding takes hours to work Antimicrobial-protected surfaces work to fight microbes all the time! Laboratory tests have proved from the time of contamination it takes only 15 minutes to kill 80% of microbes and by two hours 99.9% have been killed. Compare this to unprotected surfaces where there is no microbe-fighting […]

Myth 3: Antimicrobial wall cladding does not work in an everyday environment. It needs moisture, high temperature and humidity to work This myth surfaced because antimicrobial laboratory tests are carried out in optimal conditions for bacteria growth, such as a moisture-rich and humid environment. Our antimicrobial protection proved effective in this ultimate test against microbes. […]

Antimicrobial Wall Cladding Myths – Busted! Part 4

Myth 4: Antimicrobial wall cladding isn’t necessary as bacteria does not grow on walls and walls are at low-risk of contamination Bacteria can survive in even the most inhospitable of places. Microbes have even been proved to survive the vacuum of space. Once bacteria has contaminated a surface, it will begin to multiply and wait […]

Antimicrobial Wall Cladding Myths – Busted! Part 5

Myth 5: Overuse of antimicrobial wall cladding causes resistance to microbes There is no data to suggest resistance to antimicrobial silver-ion technology present in BioClad. This myth has developed from the news about resistance to antibiotic overuse (antibiotics are a type of antimicrobial). There have also been recent studies suggesting microbe-resistance to traditional cleaning products. […]
