Re: Mold Prevention - MicroShield Environmental Services

Now for the due diligence:
I can't find an EPA establishment number for the company listed on the web site you gave. The
EPA establishment number they give on the web site belongs to someone else.
I can't find an EPA registration number for the product they call MicroShield ES #1 or
MicroShield ES #2.
The EPA product number on their web site does not belong to a product called MicroShield ES #1
or MicroShield ES #2.
One of the EPA numbers lead me to a product sold by Unsmoke.com. Have you seen the list of
hazardous ingredients in the product or read the precautionary statements on the MSDS?
The EPA PC code they give on MicroShield ES # 2 Encapsulant, lists alot of products but not one
called MicroShield ES # 2 Encapsulant. Do you have an MSDS on this product or an EPA
registration number? Is it registered with the EPA and the State of Florida?
The patent number they give goes to a patent for an antimicrobial that says nothing about the
invention being used on wood. It talks about steel and plastic.
I can't find any products registered or sub-registered to MICROSHIELD ENVIROMENTAL SERVICES,
LLC, or to a company called Dwyer & Associates.
MICROSHIELD ENVIROMENTAL SERVICES, LLC is a company in WINTER SPRINGS, FL, that was registered
with the Florida Sec of State only 4 months ago. The address given on the web site is in
Dwyer & Associates is an active DBA located at the address given on the web site. However, the
owner of that business is different then the principle named on the MICROSHIELD ENVIROMENTAL
SERVICES, LLC filing.
The phone number given, 321-436-7706, also goes to 3 other companies: "buckseal.com", "Inter
Steel Structures" and "Foam Insulation Specialists"
Florida has some pretty strigent requirements when it comes to licensing mold remediation firms -
do you know their license number? I couldn't find it on Microshield's web site. You say their
techs are certified. Certified with whom?
