A paint that protects your house from bacteria and reduces indoor pollution

Iron gates, burglar alarms, CCTV cameras, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. We use all that and a lot more to make our homes safer for our families. It protects us against outside threats or calamities like fire—which are all, at least, visible. But there’s an unseen threat that lurks on the indoor walls of our homes that often goes unaddressed and, if ignored, could even pose a greater risk to our health.

At a time when everyone is ensconced in their homes, it becomes even more important to make your little universe a lot safer and healthier. It may sound surprising, but house walls can provide shelter not just to your family, but also less-welcome visitors like infection-causing bacteria, indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde, or tough stains that take away from the beauty of the walls. Out of all the features in a house, walls perhaps take up the most space. They stand there giving protection round the clock and giving beauty to our surroundings, only to be ignored by us until a major festival comes along.
