Tile Doctor Shield Review

Battling mold and mildew in our shower has been a challenge since my young daughter was diagnosed with asthma four years ago and I stopped using any harsh chemical cleaners. As a wife and mother of three children, I am very concerned for the health and safety of the products that I use in our home.

Therefore, I was very interested to learn about a new set of cleaning products called the Shield. Since this product line does not contain hazardous or strong chemicals, I looked forward to seeing if it really works. There are three easy steps in this cleaning process including Prepare, Shield and Maintain.

The first step is to clean the surface with Prepare. I sprayed this heavy duty cleaner on the tile in our shower and I let it sit for two minutes before wiping it clean of mold and mildew. On a few of the heavier areas, I retreated and then used a brush which got those areas clean too. I was very pleased that there was no harsh chemical smell and my tile appeared very clean.

I was then ready to move on to the next step. Shield is designed to create an invisible layer of “liquid Glass Swords” that prevents microbial growth and is an effective barrier mold, mildew, algae and dangerous bacteria. By using Shield on the tiles in our shower, it provides continuous and long lasting protection. I was impressed to see it work by repelling water i.e. little beads of the water instantly washed away (my husband compared it to Rain-X).

According to the manufacturer Shield can be used on a number of surfaces including (but not limited to…):

  • Tile & Stone floors and walls
  • Sinks, Toilets and Faucets
  • Aluminum and metal fixtures
  • Vinyl, Wood and Laminate Flooring
  • Kitchen Surfaces, Door Knobs and Light Switches

I am always concerned about limiting my daughter’s exposure to bacteria, mold and mildew and am very pleased with this product with the results so far as there has been no evident mold re-growth after 8 days.

The final step is to MAINTAIN which is an environmentally friendly cleanser that “maintains and preserves the Shield treated surfaces.” You can also use it to replace all of your other household cleaners. I like that it cleans effectively and there are no harsh chemicals.

Are you interested in seeing how it works? You can view an interesting video series that shows exactly how the “science behind the Shield system.”

I will continue to use these products to keep our household surfaces clean and resistant to mold, mildew, algae and harmful bacteria You can purchase the Tile Doctor Shield system locally or online and are invited to find a retailer by visiting the website.
