Vital-Oxide is advertised as a "broad spectrum disinfectant and mold remover" by its manufacturer. It works by oxidizing mold and mildew, as opposed to bleaching it. It is designed for household use and is non-toxic.
Duraban is an antimicrobial protectant. It has been engineered to permanently bond with the surface it is applied to in order to prevent mold from ever reappearing on the surface. It will not damage the surfaces it is sprayed on.
Mold Shield works by bonding with the surface it is applied to in order to prevent mold and microbials from ever forming on the surface again. The chemical composition of Mold Shield alters the surface it is applied to without damaging the surface or leaving the surface.
According to the product description, Mold Shield's antimicrobial "remains chemically attached to the surface on which it is applied" and " functions by interrupting the organism's delicate cell membrane," effectively killing the organisms on contact when it touches the surface Mold Shield is applied to.
