Shopping malls, offices and schools commonly have high-density of human traffic, making these places highly susceptible to the transmission of viruses and bacteria. Harmful microorganisms are known to grow on high touch-point surfaces such as door knobs, public transportation handles, wall surfaces and even air-conditioning vents. In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to protect from the transmission of these harmful bacteria. Applying antimicrobial coating to these surfaces of walls and air vents can help prevent bacteria growth and eliminate harmful viruses.
The benefits of antimicrobial coating include:
Higher resistance against bacteria
Studies have shown that applying antimicrobial coating has a 99.9% effective rate of inhibiting the growth of multiple micro-organisms and creating an unfavourable environment for bacteria and viruses to grow. Most antimicrobial coatings on average can last for a duration of six months, reducing the need to frequently use harsh cleaning agents in public facilities as well.
Prevents the spread of infectious diseases
Places such as malls and schools that see a high volume of human traffic would greatly benefit from antimicrobial coating. The application of antimicrobial coating on high touch point surfaces such as door knobs and switches help to combat and prevent the spread of viruses and infections.
Antimicrobial coating helps to reduce maintenance cost in the long run, as applying the antimicrobial solution can prevent natural staining and discolouration of surfaces that would otherwise require frequent upkeep.
