The Benefits of Copper
People have utilized copper for various purposes throughout history, but researchers haven’t studied or documented its antimicrobial properties until recent years. Copper’s strong electrical conductivity is the primary factor in rendering bacteria dysfunctional, as copper ions disrupt bacterial membranes and cause them to break down. Thanks to this powerful, germ-killing exchange, copper can safeguard your home against a multitude of microbes. In this article, we detail three specific ways you, your loved ones, and your pets can stay healthy thanks to the benefits of copper.
Copper Surfaces Prevent Bacterial Tracking on Pet Paws
When your furry friend is outside, their paws are directly exposed to soil, hard surfaces, and bodies of water, particularly during the summer. Even seemingly innocuous locations such as the neighborhood playground can harbor dozens of times more bacteria than your pet’s food bowl. Our CopperPaw Mats make those bacteria defunct as soon as your pet walks across the mat.
Copper Mats Eliminate Bacterial Threat on Shoes
When you engage in any outdoor activity, such as walking or running, your shoes come in contact with thousands of bacteria. Many bacteria are benign, but some are harmful—and when they travel back home with you on your shoe bottoms, they can pose as health risks to your body’s immune system. Walking over a CopperFoot Mat when you return home negates all the bacteria’s harmful effects.
Copper Reduces the Likelihood of Microbes Spreading
Babies and young children often touch objects and surfaces that may contain germs. To make matters more complex, young children frequently put their hands in their mouths, which makes it easy for bacteria to attack their immune systems. If you’re unable to clean your child’s hands and clothing immediately, then they may become susceptible to the bacteria and become sick. By using our CopperFoot Mats after outdoor activities and washing your child’s hands frequently, you can drastically reduce the likelihood of bacteria spreading throughout your home.
Through these examples, we can see that the benefits of copper manifest far and wide, making it an extremely practical metal. Thanks to the benefits of copper, you can exert far less energy counteracting colds and flus and spend more time relaxing, taking care of tasks around the house, or enjoying activities with your family. Researchers have found that copper can destroy over 100 microbial pathogens, and wiping them out is easier than ever with CopperFoot Mats. Buy yours today!
