Super-Strong Paint Kills Superbugs

“When any building or furnishing is damp for more than 48 hours, mold may grow,” the scientists write in the article. “Water damage due to roof or plumbing leakage, floods, and poor drainage of rainwater runoff or landscape irrigation can significantly promote mold growth.”

Mold, in addition to causing physical damage to building materials, also can sensitize and produce allergic responses in some individuals. Mold exposure, the scientists write, also can cause serious fungal infections.
