Microorganisms “include bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi, like mold and mildew.” Antimicrobial products are common in medical facilities and are used in textiles. At first, it might seem strange that anti- microbials are found in fabrics, but the truth is, without this layer of protection, many fabric products would succumb to contamination and have to be discarded.
Similar to antibacterial soaps and disinfectants, antimicrobial fabrics help reduce the spread of disease. The primary function of antimicrobials is to help prevent bacteria and other microorganisms from attaching to the fabric surface. Keep in mind, microorganisms can live in a fabric and grow. That’s why antimicrobials are so effective -- they prevent the growth and spread of microorganisms within the fabric. This is especially useful in the healthcare industry where exposure to bacteria and other pathogens is possible on a daily, hourly, basis. From beds to pillows, to hospital gowns, and even the scrubs a nurse or doctor wears, fabrics in the healthcare industry must be designed to prevent the spread of disease. That’s why the use of antimicrobial fabrics is so common and so helpful in the places like hospitals.
