In 2006, a study was conducted about colloidal silver treating wood flooring and experts found out that the application destroys up to 98.9% of harmful pathogens. It also keeps cockroaches away from the flooring up to 88% compared in standard wood flooring. Experts who demonstrated the discovery were not yet sure why these cockroaches avoid the laminate wood flooring with colloidal silver.
Cockroaches are known to be spreaders of bacteria and germs that can cause different types of diseases. These pests have a naturally joint relationship with germs that is why they are more likely to carry and spread them. This might be the purpose of their life, so the cockroaches were able to sense that the silver coated flooring endangers their life’s purpose.
The joint relationship of cockroaches and different forms of harmful microbes makes them benefit with each other. The mutualism of these two makes them inseparable when it comes to spreading life-threatening diseases.
Maybe that is the reason why cockroaches avoid the flooring tiles with colloidal silver. They need to protect their own microbes to keep them alive too. Cockroaches are responsible in contaminating food and transmitting disease carrying microbes like coliform molds, staphylococci, salmonella, and clostridia.
They also carry toxoplasmosis causing parasites, a disease that can be dangerous to pregnant women and cause a serious birth defect. A research revealed that cockroaches contain 50 microorganisms in their body that can cause serious health problems to humans.
They are carriers of 17 fungi, 32 bacteria, 3 protozoa, and 2 viruses. Impregnating colloidal silver on laminate flooring regularly can be helpful in avoiding these disease causing pests. Having a colloidal silver generator that produces unlimited supply of colloidal silver is more practical especially for the purpose of impregnating the solution on the entire flooring.
Experts are opening an opportunity for flooring manufacturers to coat their laminate wood flooring with colloidal silver and sell it to homeowners for their own safety. Wood flooring with colloidal silver can be a little expensive but the safety and protection it provides for the family is a lot more priceless than what they had paid for.
Not only to wood flooring can colloidal silver be applied. Spraying the solution in other places such as garbage cans and baseboards where cockroaches hide is also possible to prevent them from living in that area close to your home. Even on the areas like bathroom, kitchen, and living room, colloidal silver is safe to use without damaging the appliances and furniture in your home.
