Antimicrobial paint: a game-changer for your business and at home

Looking around Vancouver these days you can see most businesses are closed while we deal with an unprecedented epidemic. While gathering in groups or public spaces is not recommended, it is a good opportunity to freshen up your business interior, and protect it – and your clients and staff – at the same time.

Did you know that antimicrobial paint is an effective front line of defense against bacteria and illness?

The new wave of antimicrobial paints are so effective, they are able to kill 99.9% of ALL bacteria including Staph and E Coli within two hours of exposure on the painted surface. Yes, you heard that right. They are not only effective at killing bacteria during the painting process, but they seal your home, or business and protect you, your family, clients, or staff after that.

Are antimicrobial paints good for my home too?

Yes! Sherwin Williams has several antimicrobial paint choices. They are water-based latex paints, with the rich colour, and lasting coverage you would expect from any Sherwin Williams product. If your family brings home every new illness, flu, or cold, antimicrobial paint could help.

How long will antimicrobial paint be effective?

Depending on the product, this paint should last up to four years of normal wear and tear. It was originally developed for schools, daycares, and hospitals, and tested rigorously in those high impact areas.

Where should antimicrobial paint be applied?

Antimicrobial paints are very useful for any high traffic areas in businesses, as well as areas where most germs and bacteria collect. This includes:

Around sinks
Kids play areas
