We're experiencing mildew troubles. My family and I traveled for a long trip last August. A leak had started while we were driving across the country. Fortunately, the drip wasn't too serious. Mold was already propagating. And mildew grows like a flash. A single spore begins propagating very quickly if certain situations exist. And what are those? Mold needs nourishments, water, and time. Well, there was certainly moisture. But nourishments? What does mold have for breakfast? As it turns out, a lot, but in my house the mold was eating carpet, plywood, and dust. Yes, those common materials are snacks for mold. There are not many things which cause more harm to a building than mold damage. Of course, some items can be reclaimed through professional mold remediation if the problem is found early enough, but once mold or mildew spreads through drywall, furniture, or many other household fixtures, it's best to just get rid of the moldy things and replace them. Don't try to treat the mold with household products. Hire a a dedicated restoration service like Paul Davis. With years of experience a restoration company has many tools and resources you don't have access to. To start, they can tell you which moldy items are worth restoring and which should just be thrown out.
There are some solutions. Defeat wetness. That meant we had to stop the drip. You can do all the drying you want but if the leak is still there, then all that work is for nothing. Next, remove the mold. Sound simple? Well, it isn't. You need to totally clean walls and floors and chuck any contaminated items. Short on time?
