    Re: Mold Prevention coatings --Dr. Lipsey

    Posted by John S. on 10/21/04

    Well to all of you that posted in regard to this aspect of
    protection, these coatings are better to have than not to have.
    There is a new company called Bio-Barrier, LLC that has a mold
    coating that is applied during the building process that does
    safely inhibit mold/fungi/algae growth. They also modify all
    other environments against pathogenic microorganisms. It is a
    great step in the right direction for sure! Also, to those who
    think that these services and products are not worth
    consideration are uneducated and close-minded. Yes prevention is
    the idea; however, that is what these companies are offering-
    added protection/prevention that is verifiable and affordable.
    Keep in mind, that microbes are never going away. Going after the
    source/cause of microbial growth etc, is necessary, but other
    security measures couldn’t hurt. Check out
    They are the future!
