How your choice of bathroom sealant can help improve indoor air quality

Mould and bacteria can be unwanted and persistent house guests, especially in the bathroom where the moist and humid surroundings offer ideal breeding grounds. Every time you take a shower or bath, the wet and warm conditions help bacteria and fungus to multiply and spread. You’ll usually notice mould growing in the corners of the room, on the walls, ceiling and in your shower and bathtub.

But, did you know that your choice of bathroom sealant can actually help prevent mould growth while improving the overall air quality of your home?

Mould reproduces by releasing microscopic spores into the air. These spores settle in places about the harm such as on your bathroom sealant, where it settles in and the surrounding warmth speeds up the process. However, if you’ve used an anti-mould and anti-bacterial bathroom sealant such as BT1 from C-Tec, these airborne spores cannot survive on its surface and therefore can neither grow nor spread throughout the bathroom.

 

Improving indoor air quality with BT1

Harmful bacteria can often become airborne in the home and make their way inside the human body, which is when physical symptoms start to emerge. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that air pollution is something that only the outside world has to worry about. The air in our homes can be just as polluted, if not more so, than the air outdoors. Chemicals from everyday items like fragrances, conventional cleaners, mould and house dust are the main culprits, which is why it’s so important to protect your home by taking necessary precautions.

It can be very difficult to defeat mould once it’s taken hold of your existing sealant. You could try scrubbing it for hours only to return to the same job a few months or even weeks down the line. Or, you can eliminate bacteria and mould from your bathroom for good by using a powerful anti-bacterial bathroom sealant such as BT1.

BT1 can be used in both wet and dry conditions and although it’ll be constantly open to the warm and moist surroundings of the bathroom, airborne bacteria will never be able to take hold and grow on its surface. This unique product is unlike any other waterproof sealant because its formula is based on TRIBRID® technology, which means we’ve done the seemingly impossible and created a product upon which bacteria and microbes cannot survive. Therefore, maintaining hygienic bathroom surfaces that are free of mould, fungus, bacteria and harmful spores, has never been easier.

When you use BT1 as your bathroom sealant and adhesive, you can improve the indoor air quality of your home as BT1 has proven to reduce bacteria by up to 99.99%. Common forms of bacteria such as MRSA, E. coli and Campylobacter have no chance of survival when BT1 is present, making it the most trustworthy and healthiest bathroom sealant on the market.
