Taking the war on germs to the next level, business owners and home owners in the greater Boulder, CO, region can now request antimicrobial paint additives or microbicidal paints to be used to keep their workplaces and homes cleaner and safer. At Jacobsen Brothers Painting, we have proven methods for applying these protective coatings that can kill Staph, E. coli and other bacteria within two hours of contact. Public places that get a lot of traffic are good candidates for these targeted coatings.
Who should ask for microbicidal paints?
These germ-fighting surfaces are excellent choices for healthcare facilities, nursing homes, day cares, schools, churches, offices, public buildings, exercise facilities, doctor’s offices, hotels, community centers, sports facilities or spas.
Even private homes would benefit from these bacteria-killing surfaces applied to bathrooms, nurseries, children’s rooms, hallways and kitchens.
What are the benefits of microbicidal paints?
According to Sherwin-Williams, their EPA-approved microbicidal paint kills 99.9% of bacteria such as Staph, MRSA, E. coli, VRE and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure on these specially-treated surfaces. It continues to kill 90% of bacteria caused by repeated contamination. These benefits can last up to four years. On surfaces that are constantly exposed to contamination, this can be a great way to reduce the amount of constant cleaning required to keep bacteria at bay.
What is the science behind microbicidal paints
These paints are the results of a unique collaboration between paint coating scientists and microbiologists. A well-known microbicide is added to waterborne paint, creating a match equal to the task of killing a variety of bacteria that comes into contact with the painted surface.
What is the difference between antimicrobial paint and microbicidal paint?
Antimicrobial paint resists the growth of bacteria, creating an ideal surface to discourage cross-contamination and is safe for food-contact surfaces as well as hospital walls and more. Additionally, this paint resists mold and mildew growth, so it is ideal for humid locations, such as the bathroom, or places that gather odors or stain, such as the basement.
Microbicidal paint has an antibacterial additive that kills bacteria that comes into contact with the painted surface. After repeated contaminations, the paint can still effectively battle bacteria. It is ideal for places that get a lot of traffic, as well as healthcare facilities.
