General Polymers Antimicrobial Flooring and Wall Systems Help Minimize the Growth of Mold, Bacteria and Microbes

CINCINNATI, OH (October 29. 2002) -Concerns about indoor exposure to mold in public and commercial buildings are growing daily as the public learns that exposure to mold and microbial contamination can cause a variety of allergic reactions and illnesses.

A healthy environment has everything to do with proper cleaning procedures. Designing facilities with materials that are easy to clean and maintain -such as General Polymers Seamless Floor and Wall Systems -help control mold, bacteria and other microbial growth, but cleaning procedures are ultimately responsible for a healthy building.

Schools, hospitals, clinics, restaurants, kitchens, cafeterias, food and beverage processing plants and animal care facilities, in particular, pose challenging environments to maintain because of the constant source of nutrients upon which microbes thrive.

Designing buildings for sustainability is important for interior building health. Where frequent and aggressive cleaning procedures are required, the life cycle of some products can be significantly reduced. Specifying more durable and longer lasting finishes, such as General Polymers Seamless Floor and Wall Systems, reduces the frequency of replacement and interruption of facility services.

General Polymers' seamless, non-porous flooring and integral wall systems are easily cleaned and minimize areas where mold, bacteria and other infectious agents might grow. This is especially true in wet environments but can also improve the overall indoor air quality in dry conditions with a proper cleaning program.

All General Polymers' flooring systems can be installed with integral cove bases that can be seamlessly transitioned from the wall system. All products are available with an antimicrobial additive that will protect the floor or wall system from microbial attack. Utilizing General Polymers' systems with an antimicrobial additive can also help reduce odor associated with the presence of mold or bacteria.
