Re: Mold Prevention coatings applied during new construction

EPA registration is important only if you are actually applying a
pesticide. The EPA regulates pesticides. Most of the mold
prevention products do not contain pesticides. All the mold Killers
Paint products have all kinds of additives added to them and they do
not require EPA approval. The new mold prevention products are under
the same requirements. Those of you, who do not understand the
guidelines of the Gov't and what they are for are mislead
I have been a builder for years and understand water intrusions and
mold. To prevent is better than to react.
Several of the products on the market are designed to kill existing
mold on the product surface. This is good, but they do not last
(check the warranty claims) they also can be washed off by a water
intrusion over time. (once again not good because mold needs moisture
Once you actually check out the facts you all will see that you should
prevent mold growth over the long term, see your states home owners
warranty (most are 10 years and then some).
Be very careful of fast talking salesmen that try to scare you away
from products or into using product. These guys are no good. Check
the facts warranties are very important, and it doesn't really matter
what state the parent company resides in. If the manufacturer doesn't
warrant the product then don't trust them. Chevy and Ford stand
behind their products so do several companies out there.
