This article which looks at “Sealants that don’t go black and mouldy” is the third in a series of articles by bathroom water damage prevention specialist Steve Dalloway.
I know its wrong, but I love standing in the sealant isle in the leading Orange shed and watch people try to decide what to buy. They have no chance in getting it right sadly and it’s not their fault at all. It’s all about knowledge and experience of the products available.
After testing many sealants over the years there is only one we would use now and that’s a UK made product called “Forever White” or “Forever Clear” made by Everbuild.
Why ? Well this product has a chemical called Microban in it and it kills mould. Chefs use this Microban product on chopping boards to prevent mould growth and it really works.
I have personally used this for six years without any mould appearing on the sealant. Dirt yes, mould NO!
I don’t make this product, but I specify it in a number of the products my company manufactures and sells. More about that later.
