    Microorganisms, including all bacteria and all fungal organisms, ie, mold and mildew, cause textile fiber deterioration, unsightly staining, color changes and unpleasant odor as well as the risk of environmental cross-contamination and infection. Microorganisms require a warm and moist environment to survive and replicate on nonwoven textile fibers.
