What is mold? What is mildew?

Both are types of fungi, and each thrives in moist environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. The color of mold is black or dark green, while mildews is often grey or white and has a fluffy texture. Mildew mostly you can find on top of damp surfaces, or behind surfaces such as walls and ceilings. Mold can cause all sorts of health issues, including headaches, chronic fatigue, fever, eye & throat irritation, sneezing, heart problems, rashes, mucous membrane, respiratory failure, chronic coughing, and even depression. Mildew is not as dangerous as mold, but in some cases can cause respiratory and nasal irritation.

Where does it come from?

Mold and mildew can be introduced into your home in several ways. For instance, mold may flourish after a leak, high humidity, or inadequate ventilation, around the chimney, roof rafters, and heaters. Check these places for mold and mildew first. Also, they may grow in dark spaces, so it’s important to cut out any water-damaged sodden insulation from between the ceiling joists and wall studs. Dry out the places with some electric fans. High humidity is another reason for mold and mildews to grow on damp surfaces, fabrics, wallpapers, and ceramic tile. All you need is to reduce humidity by running the air conditioning or using dehumidifiers. If you don’t own a dehumidifier, or your air-conditioning system wasn’t checked by a technician to whether it operates properly, or if you don’t know how to deal with mold and mildew on your own, you should call professionals.

What are other effective ways to reduce moisture?

A huge amount of moisture is released into the air during showering and cooking, so we advise you to increase ventilation in order to move moisture out of your house. Use the bathroom vent fan while you take shower and for at least 10 minutes after showering. Also, use the kitchen range hood when cooking or boing water. It draws air through a filter and blows it back to the kitchen. Make your place cooler. Mold and mildew get stronger in warmer climates, so make sure to lower the temperature down with air conditioning.

To kill the spores, get rid of the current invaders, and prevent them from growing, you can purchase cleaner with bleach, or you can use liquid chlorine to clean away mold and mildew. Another way to prevent mold from growing is by pouring one cup of oxygen bleach into one gallon of hot water, mixing it well, and spraying it to the spots. Make sure you are not allergic.

There are many commercial cleaners available in stores, but the most efficient way to get rid of mold and mildew is by calling a professional crew. Re-Store Services will help you fight mold in your house.
