Bacteria in the bathroom is a fairly common problem in households that have made the mistake of using a sealant or adhesive that can’t resist mould or fungal infestation. If not dealt with properly and efficiently, harmful bacteria will continue to manifest in your bathroom and eventually make its way into the human body. This can lead to a host of health issues including breathing difficulties, a spike in allergy symptoms and so much more.
Although bacteria growth in the bathroom is common, it’s very easy to prevent and cure with help from a sanitary sealant such as BT1. If you want to help reduce your family’s allergy symptoms, the bathroom is a good place to start.
Here’s everything you need to know about allergy-proofing your bathroom:
Why bacteria grows in the bathroom
When people think of bacteria growing in the bathroom, most immediately assume that the toilet and the sink are the worst spots for it. However, you’d be surprised to learn just how much harmful and aggressive bacteria grows on and around your bathroom sealant. No matter how clean you are, your bathroom is rife with germs. You could scrub the walls all day long and you’d still find traces of E. coli and other types of bacteria lurking in the corners and on your bathroom sealant.
Germs thrive in wet and humid environments. Allergy sufferers will be all too familiar with symptoms of itchy and irritated eyes, sneezing, coughing and even breathing difficulties. But what many people don’t know is that by simply using an anti-bacterial sealant in the bathroom, you can help reduce allergies and provide a safer, healthier environment for the whole family.
What is BT1 and how can it help eliminate harmful bacteria?
BT1 is the latest development in bathroom sealant and adhesive technology. Unlike other bathroom sealants, BT1’s formula is based on our revolutionary TRIBRID® technology, which means it has triple strength and three times the power to resist mould, bacteria, and fungal infestation.
Maintaining a mould-free bathroom through cleaning alone is hard work. BT1 has proven to reduce bathroom bacteria by up to 99.99%, which is something previously unheard of in the industry. It’s seriously effective against a broad spectrum of microbes including MRSA, E. coli and Campylobacter. Using BT1 will help allergy-proof your bathroom as no trace of bacteria, mould or fungus can even attempt to grow on its surface.
You can use BT1 to bond shower panels without mechanical fixings and with its high elasticity, you can easily use it to bond with a variety of materials including woods, metals, concrete, fibreglass, glass, ceramics and more. Tiling your bathroom with BT1 will help ensure that every inch of your walls is protected from bacterial growth and infestation.
By eliminating bacteria in the bathroom, residents with allergies may notice that symptoms are reduced, which is great news for long-time sufferers of things like hay fever and even asthma.
