Resistant to bacteria, mould and fungi

Ceramic does not favour the proliferation of fungi, mould or bacteria


Ceramic does not favour the proliferation of fungi, mould or bacteria.
Some floors do not favour the proliferation of bacteria, mould or fungi… as long as specific cleaning products are used. But ceramic is resistant to bacteria, mould and fungi.

Healthy living spaces are crucial to our quality of life. For this reason, it’s essential to choose surfaces that don’t harbour dirt or are quick and easy to clean. Bacteria, mould and fungi are a health hazard and tend to form in damp environments and on surfaces where they are able to proliferate. But ceramic can be cleaned easily and effectively using normal household cleaning agents, and its inert surfaces do not facilitate the proliferation of fungi, mould or bacteria.
