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.
Our master bathroom has little ventilation, so every week I’m standing on my sons little stool in my shower stall scrubbing my wall and ceiling, I would love to forgo having to clean the mold off my walls every week. This product would be awesome to try!!
With our “hard” well water, bleach really doesn’t help. I (honestly) use Works toilet bowl cleaner. It’s the only thing I’ve found that removes the hard water, soap scum, and mold. I hate using it because we have a septic field and I know it is not good, but what’s a girl to do!! I am certainly going to look into this product. Thank you for the information.
my shower was installed without backerboard. of course, mildew is occurring, to put it mildly. i’ve tried product after product over the years. nothing really works except bleach. i’m allergic to both bleach and mildew. i’m sure you see the problem. until we can afford to rip it out and replace it… WE NEED BIG HELP!
I would say I’d use it in the bathroom for sure – also around the kitchen sink. Look wonderful! May the force be with me 🙂
If I were picked to try Edurance Bio Barrier Mold and Mildew Protection, I would try it in several areas that have been unrelenting to mold and mildew problems – for one, my old “Michigan” Basement. A “Michigan” basement is a partially “dug-out” basement. Not finished off, usually with dirt walls & floor sometimes partially “finished” with cement or cinder blocks and a cement floor. Usually very damp, & has a very unique odor of damp & dirt and sometimes a musty mildewey smell depending upon how damp it gets. This would be a try test of Edurance Bio Barrier Mold/Mildew Protection. I would also try it around the spindles of my covered porch where mildew grows and on the siding of my house and out buildings. I’ll put your protect to the test!!
This looks incredible! My master bath sounds similar and I’d love to try it out!
I have a shower with a similar problem. I’d love to have a longer lasting solution to the mold problem. Teenage daughter takes long, steamy showers; can you say science experiment?
I would love to try these products. I also have a nasty basement bathroom with no ventilation . I have tried so many different things all to no avail. Maybe there is hope with these products. Thank you
I have a shower in our master bath that is in desperate need of an effective mold & mildew cleaner. Note I said “effective”. The seal where the glass frame meets the tile looks like something out of a horror movie. I have a closet full of product that haven’t helped, perhaps Endurance will.
I have the same problem in our full bathroom. It has 60 year old tile and bad ventilation and molds up in about a month. This stuff sounds perfect!
I would use it in our showers (I have tiled ceilings in my showers too!) and on the windows in my kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, family room and front room. The windows in our house are big but divided up into 9 smaller rectangular windows each about 1.5 x 2 feet. They don’t open and while they are double paned they are very old and sweat especially when I cook. With 9 separate window sills x 6 total window areas, that’s a lot of moldy window goo, 54 to be exact. One of these day they will get replaced, but until then I am up to eyebrows in wet Washington moldy window gunk.
This product would sure help me out with my phone-booth size bathroom! I have very little ventilation and have tried numerous products but the mold keeps coming back.
I’d definitely use this in our master bathroom shower as well.
I would love to win and try this product. So in case I don’t win, can you tell us where we can buy this? I get mold on the siding of the house, along with my shower.
