Household Cleaning Product from The Shower Doctor can Combat Fatal Disease

Since the Edinburgh outbreak of Legionnaires disease in May 2012, 100 people have been diagnosed with the illness – prompting industry experts to advise on mould prevention.

Mould commonly forms in the corners of a humid bathroom. Stay on top of this with a sterilizing hygiene solution – that is the advice from shower accessories specialists The Shower Doctor. The most effective mould prevention products contain Tiosan, a chemical designed to disinfect water systems and specifically ‘kill Legionella bacteria quickly’.

Legionella pneumophila is the strain of bacterium that causes Legionnaire’s disease, an illness closely related to pneumonia. With the recent outbreak in Edinburgh directly affecting 100 people, The Shower Doctor are doing what they can to raise awareness about the dangers of mould in the home.

A spokesperson for The Shower Doctor commented:

‘We are always pushing for improved hygiene in the bathroom. Products like Tiosan make it easy to stay on top of mould growth. Independent tests show that the chemical kills Legionella quickly – preventing a potentially lethal disease from developing in our homes. This is something we should all be taking seriously, especially those of us who live in older buildings and using traditional water boilers.’

Tiosan takes effect within 24 hours and is a must-have accessory for healthy showering. The solution targets the bacterial sheet where Legionella can reside amongst various other dangerous germs – known as biofilm. Tiosan is made from hydrogen peroxide and can penetrate bacterial defences to obliterate all harmful microbes from the water system.

As an organisation, The Shower Doctor is dedicated to improving the modern showering experience in every way – and thankfully that includes the promotion of, what is in effect, a life-saving chemical. It is the major products like the Shower Doctor shower hoses which have helped establish this firm’s standpoint as an expert in the plumbing industry.

Still, amongst the firm’s collection of shower spares, niche products like the mould prevention spray containing Tiosan is available – making it easy to disinfect the top corners of the bathroom.
