Mildew is a surface fungus that easily develops on cardboard, books and even fabrics. Mildew usually grows in a flat pattern and may appear powdery. Mildew usually starts out white and may later turn to yellow, brown or black. It can usually be treated with a store-bought cleaner and scrub brush. Mould is usually fuzzy in appearance and can be many different colours including white, yellow, blue, green, brown, gray and black. Mould will cause structural damage to your home and can cause numerous health issues.
Opening the windows in your commercial property to assist the drying process is not always recommended. Outside weather conditions may vary. Your ServiceMaster Restore technician will determine when and if opening windows to let in outside air is advisable.
