Mold vs Mildew in Your Uxbridge Commercial Building

7/2/2019 (Permalink)

Differences between mold and mildew.

Uxbridge, MA is an area where flooding and storm damage is common, since Massachusetts is a coastal state. Mold and mildew are both fungi that thrive in moist, warm environments, so a flooded home in July is a spores dream. Mold and mildew can both be found anywhere both inside and outside. More specifically, they can be found after water or storm damage in your Uxbridge or Northbridge residence/ commercial property

It's important to keep your area clean and inspect it regularly to keep employees, customers, and other personnel safe and not as risk for diseases.

Key Differences 

Mold - Black, yellow, blue or green in color. Mold is sometimes fuzzy or even slimy. Black mold poses a serious risk to our health if inhaled (especially for children and the elderly), and specialized cleaning products and equipment are necessary to halt substantiating growth. 

Mildew - Powdery and lighter in color - usually white or grey. This is a result of fungal growth but can be arrested with common cleaning products from the store and a good scrubbing brush.
