Concrobium offers an additional level of protection against mould growth by leaving surfaces with an invisible yet durable antimicrobial coating that continually prevents fungal and mould spores from attaching and colonizing on the surface. Whether using Concrobium to clean and disinfect surfaces or pretreating vulnerable areas, this patented encapsulating action helps to ensure that harmful mould will not grow back.
