Keeping Mildew Away

Removing mildew is typically an easy process but it can be time consuming to cure the growth of mildew. One thing to remember is that mildew is different than mold. Many people tell us that they have mold growing in their bathrooms, eaves, and deck when in reality it is only mildew. Mold is far more harmful for those suffering from allergies than mildew, but mildew's uncharming characteristics include its unsightly appearance and its propensity to eat away paint. Mildew is typically black and spotty looking. It also tends to be more of a surface growth that feeds directly on the paint. Mold has to be removed by a licensed mold remediation company while a professional paint company or homeowner can remove most surface mildew in California. You will find mildew growing in the follow areas: 1) Where there is little sunlight (north sides of homes), 2) Dense landscaped areas, 3) Bathrooms with insufficient vents, 4) Underhang/Eaves of Home, 4) Decks that have an oil base, semi-transparent stain, 5) Homes that have oil base products and lots of moisture, and 6) Around your shower or bathtub where the wrong caulk has been used. To clean mildew areas, use a little solution of bleach mixed with water. In a bathroom, you can use a sponge and wipe the walls and ceilings with the bleach water. This will typically remove the mildew right away. If it is a larger area, you can spray the solution using a small Hudson sprayer and use a brush or sponge to wipe the areas down well. A pressure-washer with the ability to apply a detergent also works well to remove surface mildew. In order to keep mildew from returning, the best solution is to paint with products that do not attract mildew. Waterborne (acrylic) products are the best available today. Most oil base products contain ingredients that cause mildew to grow. Some deck coatings, for example, will say they are mildew-resistant, but not mildew-proof. Ask a professional about the best products to use. If you would like our help, we would be happy to offer our professional opinion on how to keep your home looking the best. Many painters are not well educated on the current and best products to use on a home. We want you to be happy that you hired us and confident your problems are addressed and solved.
