Controlling Microbial Activity on Walls by a Photocatalytic Nanocomposite Paint: A field study

See — Background: Bacteria and fungi that grow on the walls can cause allergic reactions and infectious diseases in human. We proposed a low-cost and easy-to-operate testing protocol for large scale field studies to evaluate the long-term antimicrobial performance of a novel WOx paint in two primary schools. Methods: In Tun Mun and Tin Shui Wai schools, WOx paints were painted on semi-outdoor and indoor walls and daily chlorine disinfection was applied after class in TSW School. A guidance was proposed for the protocol using the ATP biofluorescence method for large-scale field studies. ATP swab samples were taken…
