We are constantly interacting with microbes which is fine since most microbes are harmless to humans. However some microbes can and do negatively affect human life.
Microbes like moulds and fungi can grow into plagues in buildings. In millions of old and new houses, the walls, ceilings, joints and tiled floors are ‘contaminated’ with moulds and fungi. These may cause health problems such as chest infections, like infection of the bronchial tubes and allergies. In industrial buildings, fungi and bacteria can disturb production processes and present an environmental risk through the ventilation system.
It is expected that moulding will only increase, because of better insulation, insufficient ventilation and stricter governmental restrictions regarding fungicides. Besides, fungi are building more and more resistance to current preventative measures. Do you want to know more about how you can prevent harmful microbes from influencing your daily life? Then explore this website and learn how you can prevent microbial growth, since bacteria and fungi are an integral part of our environment.
