Shield Yourself from Potential Risk

Mold prevention is critical on water restoration projects. Unfortunately, conditions often exist for potential mold or there is already active visible growth when a contractor starts a job. Thus you need to shield your company and customers from the risks of future mold growth.

Thoroughly cleaning and drying the structure per industry standards is a must, but adding a layer of protection for you and your customer is in everyone’s best interest. SurfaceShield was designed to do just that – and to do it more easily and economically than other mold prevention products.

While there are several mold prevention coatings available, the majority are just exterior paints with an antimicrobial additive. These mold resistant paints have significant limitations and are extremely expensive to use.

What makes SurfaceShield different?

First and foremost, unlike competitors, SurfaceShield’s patented technology penetrates into building materials and blocks the mold-supporting nutrients (carbohydrates and sugars) from migrating to the surface. Simply put, it takes the food source away which effectively removes a necessary component for mold growth.

SurfaceShield can be applied to building materials with up to 30% moisture content allowing contractors to activate powerful mold prevention technology when and where other products can’t. Competitors require the wood moisture equivalent (WME) to be below 16% on dimensional lumber and sheeting or they will blister and render warranties void. This makes SurfaceShield a gamechanger for restoration contractors and new home builders.

SurfaceSield’s patented technology is so superior, Legend Brands backs it with a 10-year Limited Warranty.

Finally, SurfaceShield saves contractors money – big money. Competitors’ products range from $375 to $425 per 5-gallon pail with a stated coverage of 150 to 400 square feet per gallon. That’s an average cost of $2 per square foot to apply. SurfaceShield covers 250 to 1000 square feet per gallon and at an MSRP of $200 per 5 gallon pail. SurfaceShield provides better protection and saves you 50% over other brands.

SurfaceShield comes in two forms: clear SurfaceShield and SurfaceShield Plus that goes on white so that it’s easy to see where it’s been applied. Both products offer easy water cleanup for a fast finish! Watch our SurfaceShield video to see how easy it is to add mold prevention to your next job.
