Endurance BioBarrier Review
Endurance BioBarrier Review
I’m going to warn you now, this is not a pretty post. But, this product review of Endurance Cleaner Prep and Endurance BioBarrier will most likely be one of your favorite posts if you deal with continual mold & mildew growth (especially in a small coffin-like shower from the 1970’s.)

You may remember how much I love our master bathroom shower:
That ugly harvest gold tile shower is the ugliest spot in our home. And, its attractive color is not helped by the mold growth that returns like clockwork every three weeks. I have tried everything to control its regrowth. What I’ve tried is using bleach, and leaving the shower door open all day. I even replaced the caulk in this shower. But, every three weeks that mold peeks out from the cracks and crevices.
This bathroom is slated to be demolished at some point, but until then it needs constant cleaning. That is until a few months ago when I tried Endurance BioBarrier Mold Prevention Spray (non-toxic and low-odor.)
Endurance sent me a the Cleaner Prep and Biobarrier to try out. You may remember that I tried it after cleaning our dirty and moldy storm windows.
I didn’t want to blog about the products until I had tried them for more than a few months. I’m happy to report that for four months, I didn’t need to clean our shower! Normally after three weeks the mold and mildew would have been happily growing in the corners of my shower.
On February 5th, 2015 I set about cleaning the shower with high hopes but big doubts.
As directed, I sprayed the Endurance BioBarrier Cleaner Prep in the shower. I let it sit for 15 minutes (1-5 minutes for normal cleaning. 15 minutes for tougher jobs.)
To clean off the mildew and mold, I used a scrub brush. Then rinsed all the surfaces with water.
After the shower is completely cleaned with the Cleaner Prep, spray the Endurance BioBarrier Anti-Mold protection spray to create a thin film on all surfaces.
Wipe up any puddled spray after a few minutes.
The shower was clean and devoid of any mold or mildew. Nothing miraculous yet. I can achieve the same results with bleach cleaner.
But, here’s where the similarities end. After four months (not three weeks) was the first time I began to see some mildew and mold regrowth.
I took the following photos on June 4th, almost four months to the day since cleaning the shower. You can see all the soap scum that had accumulated, but only a small amount of mildew had begun to form.
I was told by my contact at Endurance that typically the spray works 6 months or longer. But, given the small confined shower and no ventilation in that room, the mildew grew back earlier than typical results. Regardless, I’m thrilled with the results.
You can use the Endurance BioBarrier Cleaner Prep product to clean up mold. Then use the Endurance Mold Prevention Spray for long lasting protection against mold, mildew, germs and musty odors. You can expect up to 6 months in high-traffic areas such as bathrooms, kitchens and locker rooms. Up to 2 years on exposed indoor or outdoor surfaces such as ceilings, walls, stucco, siding, roofing, gutters, concrete, bricks and more. And up to 25 years on enclosed surfaces such as attics, crawl spaces and stud cavities.
Disclosure: Endurance BioBarrier sent me the Endurance BioBarrier and Cleaner Prep spray products to try at no cost. I was not paid to mention them or told what to say. As always, if I don’t like a product, you won’t see it featured on my blog.
This is exactly what we need for the mold problem we’re having! We’ve tried everything with no success! My mom would be so thrilled!
I would love to know what the smell was while you were using it. Was it the kind of smell you had to wear a mask for? Very impressive review.
I’d use this in my shower! I seems to get an orange mold in the corners. Yuck
I have twin 17yo sons who share a shower and are responsible for keeping it clean. They are not good at it. Periodically, I have to go in there and give it a good scrub down. I would love to try these products to see how they stand up against my Destructive Duo!
Desperately need to try this in the small standup shower in the master bath. It can’t seem to stay clean!
In my tiny closed off, tiled shower. I can’t get it to stay cleaned for a week!
Wow. I will have to try this in my bathroom. It is extremely small. Even with keeping the door open all the time and letting the fan run for hours at a time it is disgusting. Even bleach hasn’t been able to rid the bathroom of the mildew.
I would use it in my own old bathroom.. i have the same issue with quick molding no matter what I do. This would be interesting to try out and help make my life a tad less messy!
I have been fighting this same problem in all three of the showers in our house. Small white tile +white grout = a cleaning nightmare! We are also going to redo our bathrooms in the near future, but my definition of near and my husband’s are two different matters. Until then I would love to use a product that would make life easier. Thanks so much for the opportunity to try this product.
Thanks for this post. I heard about this from Lou Manfredini (HouseSmarts) on WGN TV recently, but could not recall the name of the product. I definitely need this for my bathroom tub caulk. This would make my like so much easier.
I would use it in my shower
I had a dishwasher leak behind and under the cabinets and when I finally noticed it and had the dishwasher replaced, I found mold everywhere back there. I cleaned as best I could with bleach cleaners but every few weeks that mold smell wafts out when I open one of the cabinets and I have to get back under there again. I would love to try Endurance!
Definitely in my master bath! But mostly I’d like to try it on a couple of my windows that seem to perpetually grow black spots nono after how often I scrub or bleach them.
I need this! We constantly battle black mold in the shower and in the bathroom cabinets and drawers. The rains have been heavy this year and now I have a spot of it on our bedroom ceiling. I hate the thought of sleeping in that environment. My efforts to scrub, bleach, spray have been useless. Within a day the stuff is growing back. The ceiling is the toughest to fight because I have to get up on a ladder. Hate, hate, hate black mold!!!
Use the small shower/bathroom in the basement of our 1957 Cape Cod type house which has become a bone of contention between my wife and myself. She thinks I should clean it more often-I clean it when I see mold starting- and that her shower upstairs is cleaner and blah, blah, blah. You get the idea. Well, I saw your story about what will be my miracle cleaner ace in the hole and I knew I have to have it. Imagine her surprise when I showcase my mold-free, cleaner then clean, man cave shower. She will be so happy I probably will offer to do her shower upstairs too. OK, she’ll order me to do it anyway but I’d do it happily. Would love to be considered to receive one of the gift sets of the Endurance products. Thanks.
