New: D2D Biofilm Cleaner
Biofilms are formed when bacteria and/or fungi attach to surfaces and excrete a glue-like substance. This acts as a host, breeding ground and nursery and provides protection against the environment, so that bacteria and fungi can continue to develop.
Biofilm formation can make bacteria up to 1,000 times more resistant to antibiotics, antimicrobials, disinfectants and the host's immune system, and is recognised as one of the main causes of e.g. antibiotic resistance.
Biofilms can form on both living and non-living surfaces and thus also in drinking water systems and filters in water purification plants.
Research on the development and spread of biofilms shows that preventive maintenance of surfaces and cleaning filters and pipes is essential in order to ensure water quality and significantly reduce health risks.
The patented D2D Biofilm Cleaner is able to creep under the biofilm and dislodge it from the surface of pipes and filters. After this, disinfection may take place; this is only effective after the biofilm has been dislodged.
