In recent weeks, our nation has faced the onset of a new virus, Covid-19. As we write this article, there is no known cure for this new virus, but we are constantly reminded to ensure we wash our hands and employ social distancing. At the same time, public areas are being deep cleaned and sanitized to minimize the spread.
These reinforced preventative measures are a good reminder that we face bacteria and viruses daily. A clean environment that will help fend off these daily occurring bacterias can be enhanced with Microbicidal interior latex paint.
Sherwin-Williams Paint Shield microbicidal paint is redefining what paint can do. According to the Sherwin-Williams website, it is the first paint that kills 99.9% of bacteria, including Staph, E.coli, MRSA, VRE and more within 2 hours of exposure on the painted surface and continues to kill 90% of bacteria for up to four years when the integrity of the surface is maintained.
The Paint Shield microbicidal paint passed rigorous EPA test protocol to become EPA-registered and meets the high-quality standards of all Sherwin-Williams products.
WHERE AND HOW SHOULD IT BE APPLIED?
Paint Shield microbicidal paint is applied like any other paint and can be used to paint any interior surfaces throughout the home and business. This specialty paint was initially designed for health care facilities, athletic facilities, schools, and specialized business settings but is useful in any residence, especially in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. Like any interior paint, two coats are required to ensure proper coverage.
- Daycare Facilities
- Gyms and athletic facilities
- Hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes
- Children’s bedrooms
- Veterinarians and animal hospitals
- Pet Daycares
- Kitchens or breakrooms
- Any place designed to prevent cross-contamination
- And more!
Paint Shield is available in 550 colors and the eg-shel sheen. You will be sure to find a color or shade that will complement your interior space. Learn more about Sherwin-Williams Microbicidial Paint in the following video.
