Even the cleanest houses are home to various kinds of surface-damaging bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold and mildew. Surfaces that include kitchen counters, TV remotes and bathroom floors can contain high levels of microbial contamination. When family members touch those surfaces, the transfer of those microbes can begin, leading to cross-contamination. Staphylococcus, salmonella and E. coli are among the most common pathogens encountered in residential settings, and, regardless of where a contamination originates (e.g. mishandled raw meats, the bathroom, pets or wet basements), can all cause serious illness.
In the meantime, the presence of mold in the home can have negative implications for the structure, a home’s market value, and the well-being of its inhabitants. Exterior surfaces are particularly susceptible to mold, with some forms being toxic. Exterior mold is primarily found on siding, patio furniture and decks, while interior mold is often hidden from plain sight. Mold on shower curtains and bathtub stalls is usually not difficult to detect, which is not always the case with mold in the attic, in the basement or inside of walls.
For many individuals, mold can have adverse health effects. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine linked indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms in otherwise healthy people. The potential for illness is exacerbated, it said, in infants, children and the elderly, as well as in individuals with allergies or compromised immune systems.By using our Disinfect IT equipment to kill vast array of pathogens, with an annual application of SD Pro to continually combat bacteria that can cause damage, stains and odors,homeowners can improve the overall environment, save costs and reduce toxic chemical use.
"Potentially dangerous microbes can harbor in almost every area of the home, with the largest concentrations found in the kitchen, according to recent studies."
The SD Labs' approach is to provide a long-lasting coating on surfaces to inhibit and control surface damaging bacteria, fungi and mold.
Our SD Pro product has been engineered to last up to twelve months or more from a single application.
