Indoor building materials can become major sites of microbial growth when promoting conditions, such as high humidity and nutrient content, are present. Various microorganisms, including potentially pathogenic species, are detected on building materials like tiles, ceramics, and plaster and cement walls or surfaces. Various types of surfaces can be covered by antibacterial paint in order to prevent the growth of bacteria on them. Silver ions and compounds are highly toxic for a wide range of bacteria and they show very low toxicity for human cells so that the use of silver in different forms has been a common method for antibacterial protection. Adding silver nanoparticles to the paint lets it show antibacterial activity.
