Mildew Control and Removal

Mildew, which was created by molds on various surfaces, frequently has a whitish to bluish-green appearance. Despite the fact that there is some amount of mold in the air at all times, mildew simply needs moisture and a certain temperature to grow.

Basements and crawl spaces of homes are ideal environments for the molds that lead to mildew to grow because they are warm, moist, poorly lit, and have good air circulation. They can grow on anything that will provide them with enough food, including shower curtains, rugs, and drapes. This comprises cellulose-based materials like cotton, linen, wood, and paper as well as protein-based materials like silk, leather, and wool.

Molds and mildew can cause significant damage to your structure and produce a musty odor. They tend to discolor fabrics and can eat at them to the point where the fabrics degrade and break down. Mold and mildew also discolor and eventually ruin leather, paper, and wood.

Trying to reduce the amount of moisture within the house is the first step in mildew prevention. Without sufficient ventilation, cooking, laundry, and bathing contribute three liters of water to the air each day. Any structure that becomes damp is the result of moisture from humid air condensing onto cooler surfaces. Remedial action may be required in the crawl space or basement if there is an excessive amount of moisture buildup.

Mildew Removal

All mildewed items in dark, poorly ventilated rooms, the basement, and the crawl space would need to be cleaned before it contaminates other contents in your property. During the mildew removal procedure, an enclosed space would need to be installed with the air exchange equipment with HEPA filters.
