While there are paints for general commercial painting in San Leandro, there are also paints formulated for specific conditions. Some of these “special” paints popular today include antimicrobial paints.

 

Just what exactly is an antimicrobial paint? As the name implies, it is a paint containing antimicrobial properties to kill microbes such as bacteria and germs.

 

The benefits of antimicrobial paints

 

An antimicrobial paint is formulated mainly for commercial and industrial applications. These include healthcare facilities (hospitals, clinics, etc.), nursing homes, daycares, schools, gyms, spas, and cruise ships, among many others. However, even private residences can benefit from antimicrobial paints applied to kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, children’s rooms, and hallways.

 

One of the most popular brands pf antimicrobial paint is from Sherwin-Williams, who introduces Paint Shield that contains antimicrobial properties that kill infection-causing bacteria. The company prides itself on the fact that it is the first antimicrobial paint to be registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Sherwin-Williams says that the paint will “kill greater than 99.9% of staph (staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), E. coli, VRE (vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis) and Enterobacter aerogenes after two hours of exposure.” The paint also prevents the growth of common microbes.

 

Reducing bacteria in the home is good news for those who own buildings whose surfaces are regularly exposed to contamination. Antimicrobial paints can be a great way to reduce the amount of constant cleaning and sanitizing required to prevent germs and bacteria from thriving. 

 

For people who suffer from allergies or vulnerable immune systems, antimicrobial paints will be a great way to eliminate those allergic symptoms. Antimicrobial paints also can resist unsightly mold and mildew growth. Antimicrobial paints are ideal for humid environments, such as the bathroom, or places that attract stains and musty odors, such as the basement or shoe closet.

 

Aside from their bacteria-busting properties, antimicrobial paints also offer better durability. They will not leech or cause discoloration, and the antimicrobial additives will make the surface a great-looking finish that will last for its expected lifetime. 

 

Antimicrobial paints are products of collaboration between paint coat makers and microbiologists. A microbicide is incorporated to waterborne paint, creating a paint product that can kill different types of bacteria that comes into contact with the painted surface.

 

Antimicrobial paints can provide an additional appeal to your business or facility. Customers would willingly prefer to shop, eat, or avail of other services at any commercial property that is clean and hygienic. Check commercial painting in San Leandro companies to help you choose the best antimicrobial paints for your next project.
