Qestion About Mildew

MILDEW

Mildew is a modern annoyance. A growing problem, that is unsightly, odorous, and unearthly.

WHAT IS MILDEW AND WHY IS IT A PROBLEM?

Mildew is the generic name for a few types of fungi that grow readily on moist surface. Once it invades your home, it spreads rapidly on surface and reproduces itself by releasing airborne spores the fungal equivalent of seeds. Mildew growth can deteriorate wood, paper, and leather. It can also live nicely in the wallboard paper or absorbent plaster below. It is often found in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, crawl spaces and attics. Anywhere the humidity is high is a suitable growing place for mildew.
