The Unwanted House Guest
The 21st century has spurred a revolution in the way consumers analyze potential pollutants in their homes and businesses. From asbestos and lead to BPA and formaldehyde, society has transformed the way structures are built, products are manufactured, and surfaces are cleaned in a valiant effort to preserve indoor air quality. And yet, despite this safety-driven innovation explosion, American consumers have allowed some of the most simple organisms on the planet to maintain consistent and dangerous residence in our buildings.
The dangers associated with mold growth in homes and business has been well documented by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and others. Household mold has been shown to cause and exacerbate allergies in children and adults.
The Dangers of Indoor Mold Growth
Indoor mold has been linked to:
Coughing and wheezing
Eye and skin irritation
Memory loss and lethargy
Acute idiopathic pulmonary hemorrhage among infants
In addition to these mold-induced illnesses, surface-borne microorganisms also decrease paint lifespan, produce unpleasant odors and create unsightly aesthetics.
A Better Solution
Mold, mildew, and odor causing bacteria feed on the nutrients in drywall, drywall tape, joint compound, and paint. PAINT-GUARD Mold Defense Paint Additive is a non-toxic liquid product that has been proven to inhibit the growth of mold, mildew, and odor causing bacteria on painted walls and ceilings.
Coatings enhanced with PAINT-GUARD create a microbe resistant barrier on walls and ceilings, protecting them from the growth of harmful microorganisms. The product was specifically developed by scientists to protect painted surfaces from microbial growth without the use of toxic chemicals, keeping your home clean and green. It is currently the only paint additive classified by the US EPA as a minimum risk pesticide, providing superior mold resistance without dangerous chemicals.
The product does not impact the color or texture of paint and has been shown to resist various strains of mold and mildew in laboratory and real-world conditions. PAINT-GUARD is a safe, effective method for helping to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms in homes and buildings.
