Concrete hygiene & contamination protection system.

Contamination can soak into concrete permanently, causing bacterial odours that can’t be cleaned away?

Why DO You Need a Concrete Hygiene & Contamination System?

In healthcare, animal care, and laboratories, moisture-borne contaminants such as bio-fluids can seep into the concrete. Once embedded in the porosity of the concrete, these contaminants can feed bacteria, causing odours that can’t be cleaned away.

 

The contaminants may also react with the concrete or reinforcing steel, prematurely ageing the slab and resulting in large or ongoing maintenance costs.

 

Health can be affected also, Excess moisture in the concrete beneath floor coverings can create mould colonies that can affect people’s health long before the mould can be seen or smelt.

 

MARKHAM’s contamination protection systems protect new and existing concrete permanently and effectively to extend service life and enhance hygiene.
