Clean up with Clean Extreme
Our water-based Clean Extreme range comprises three quick-drying and low odour paints formulated to provide solutions for tough everyday challenges including stains, mould and bacteria. With cleanliness now more important than ever before, opting for Clean Extreme will provide peace of mind for a long-lasting finish. If you’re not familiar with the full Clean Extreme range, here’s a handy refresher guide.
Problem: Mould from condensation or damp
Solution: Clean Extreme Mould Inhibiting paint
Surface mould can be a particular problem in void properties which may be left unheated for long periods of time. Condensation can cause mould too, especially in poorly ventilated spaces, while at certain times of year such as autumn and winter, cold and wet weather can lead to mould and mildew thriving. Damp-prone areas such as in kitchens, bathrooms and changing areas where steam leads to extra condensation also creates a recipe for damp leading to mould.
Keeping mould at bay is important – not just to avoid unsightly stains on the paintwork but because of the potential health risks associated with breathing in mould spores, which can be particularly bad for those with existing allergies and health conditions including asthma. And with the new Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act introduced this year, it’s even more important to make sure houses are safe and mould-free for residents, whether that’s private or social housing.
With a built in fungicide that prevents mould growth on the paint film, our Clean Extreme Mould Inhibiting Scrubbable Matt and Acrylic Eggshell paints are also highly resistant to stains and can be repeatedly cleaned without any detriment to the finish, unlike other anti-mould paints available. Both can be tinted to any shade too, meaning there’s no need to compromise.
Problem: Keeping surfaces hygienically clean
Solution: Clean Extreme Anti-bacterial paint
Hospitals, care homes, schools and other public sector buildings all demand exceptional levels of cleanliness – especially in high traffic areas with multiple touch points such as corridors. In addition, food preparation areas and some clinical facilities will need the extra reassurance of anti bacterial protection.
Vitally though, all these areas also need to be able to withstand intensive cleaning regimes, which will have no doubt increased in intensity in recent months. Clean Extreme offers the best of both worlds – a paint with added anti bacterial protection which will not diminish over time, no matter how many times it is scrubbed clean.
Clean Extreme Anti-Bacterial Scrubbable Matt is enhanced through the use of the independently tested SteriTouch® silver ion technology which not only inhibits the growth of any bacteria that comes into contact with the surface including MRSA and E.Coli, but also prevents bacteria from multiplying.
Unlike other anti-bacterial paints that can be prone to the problem of leaching, which is when the organic or chemical anti-bacterial agents migrate to the surface of the paint film over time where they can be wiped away, the ‘built-in’ silver ion protection offered by Clean Extreme Anti-Bacterial Scrubbable Matt can’t be washed off no matter how many times the surface is scrubbed clean. It’s also available in a washable Acrylic Eggshell finish and can be tinted to any colour.
Problem: High traffic areas prone to wear and tear
Solution: Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt
If you need a fuss-free long-lasting finish that can handle whatever is thrown at it (sometimes literally) then a paint with added stain resistance is ideal. Whether you’re painting a commercial, domestic or public property, your client will want reassurance that the paintwork will last without the need for frequent repainting. High traffic areas such as corridors and hallways will very quickly become tired and marked while kitchen and dining areas can be prone to messy food spills.
Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt has been thoroughly tested by the research and development team here at Crown against many common stains including pens, pencils, markers, coffee and foodstuffs including curry. The stains are left for a few days in the lab and then washed off with soapy water to leave a clean surface behind.
And what’s more, with an impressive durability level of 10,000 scrubs, Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt has been specifically developed to retain its flat matt appearance and ‘just painted’ appeal even after rigorous cleaning – no need to repaint over any stains.
It’s also available as a durable and washable Acrylic Eggshell finish and can be tinted to almost any shade.
