Don’t worry, we have not released your secret privat selfies to our online readers. Instead, it is about the sadly far too many beings that live in most faucets and pipes. The result is deposits of dirt, damaged pipes and contaminated water. Biofilm alarm!
Even though you may not be familiar with the term, you will have already encountered biofilms in your everyday life. They are more or less invisible and live in water pipes, on stones in the river bed, fishing nets, shower heads, toothbrushes and, and – the list is endless. They can also be found in our body, for example in our intestinal flora. The population of innumerable micro-organisms creates a slimy and protective layer, which helps us to fight off pathogens and stay healthy. Sounds a bit disgusting, but is ultimately vital for our survival.
But what if this kind of film forms in the water pipes of our kitchens and bathrooms? It would mean that countless bacteria could infiltrate the water we drink and shower with. Although these bacteria are harmless for a healthy person, they can be dangerous to individuals with a weak immune system. And who wants to wash with a million microbes?
The Sanitized® hygiene function literally nips biofilms in the bud – as they emerge – thereby preventing the subsequent contamination and destruction of material. And if you still feel a little bit like a drip when it comes to this topic you can find even more useful tips and tricks on our Sanitized® app for improving hygiene in your home.
