You can leave that little bottle of hand sanitizer at home (if you want, that is). If you’re a germophobe or perhaps work in a hospital or other type of medical facility you’ll be excited to learn that Sherwin-Williams is rolling out a new type of paint that kills 99.9% of bacteria that touches it within two hours. This is different from “antimicrobial” paint that only prevents organisms from corroding surfaces but doesn’t prove to kill them. The paint is said to be available in early 2016.
As you might be aware, premium paint color does not come without a price tag. A gallon-size can of the new antibacterial paint will cost around $85, whereas normal paint costs anywhere between $29 and $79.
Antibacterial paint isn’t just for pediatricians and daycare centers but also your Ann Arbor home, if you so choose. Contact Tree City Painting today for an estimate.
