OTTO ANTI MOULDPerfect prevention and repair of mould
From the point of view of biology, mould belongs to the fungus family. There are approx. 250,000 species in the family and around 50,000 of them belong to the subspecies of mould. Fungal spores are part of our habitat, just like bacteria, and are extremely undemanding. They thrive in humid conditions and organic materials such as soap deposits and skin flakes serve as their food.
Sealants equipped with fungicide
A so-called biofilm, a thin, slimy coating comprising fungal spores, bacteria, soap residue and skin particles on expansion and connection joints in sanitary areas, is ideal for mould formation. Regular cleaning of the joints and sanitary sealant correctly applied to the joint (without concave dips) and which includes a high-quality fungicide is important.
Ventilation prevents the formation of mould
Mould formation can be prevented by ensuring continuous relative humidity levels of under 70%, something that can only be achieved by providing adequate ventilation. Tips for good ventilation can be found here.
