Re: Mold Prevention coatings applied during new construction
Posted by Robert D on 10/20/04
I know of American Mold Guard and the Forticel product. I have
been in the remediation business for 15 years and have used every
product on the market. Last week, the manufacturer of the
Forticel product and one of their distributors was issued a Cease
and Desist order by the EPA for making illegal claims. Their
products are not EPA Registered and can not kill or prevent the
growth of mold on any surface accept for their paint film
coating. You have to be careful and not believe everything that
you read. American Mold Guard used to have a good product but
they have changed manufacturer and are making their own product
that is not EPA Registered.
Do not buy or use any product that is not EPA Registered and be
sure to require the EPA Reg. No. A lot of these people make
claims that they can not prove. Require documentation or call
the EPA to verify claims.
