Well, for those who don’t know, mildew is a growth produced by mold that is black, or sometimes white and thin. Many believe that mold and mildew are the same thing but there are not. Mold will flourish on anything; mildew will only grow where it is warm, damp, or where air is not circulated. You can look for mildew in clothing closets, basements, cellars and crawl spaces. Other places to look for mildew are on damp clothes waiting to be ironed, rugs in basements, draperies, and shower curtains. Molds and mildew are also most likely to grow in a new house because the building materials are moisturized. Whereever it is moist you can be sure that mildew will flourish. Having molds grow in your home can cause considerable damage and leave musty odors. Mold and mildew discolor fabrics at times they will rot your fabrics into pieces by eating into them. For the safety of your home and possessions you must prevent mold and mildew from growing in your home.
