What are biofilms?

Bacteria and fungi exist naturally in the air and remain invisible to the human eye.

However, they grow quickly and become more visible in warm, moist environments especially when they have a source of nutrients. Typical forms of nutrients include shampoo, soap, spray from aerosols, washing powder, household dust and food. This visible black slime or staining is called a biofilm.
