The Difference Between Mold and Mildew, and How it Starts

Difference Between Mold and Mildew Huntington Landmark CA

Mold and mildew are two things you definitely don’t want growing in any of the bathrooms of your Huntington Landmark home in California. But have you ever wondered what the difference is between these two terms? Mold and mildew are both fungi that thrive in moist environments. In households, this type of environment is commonly found in bathrooms, where mold and mildew often have plenty of light and moisture and are able to feed off soap residue. Mildew usually has a powdery appearance, and may be white or gray. In contrast, mold may be darker and appear hairy. Additionally, whereas mildew is not associated with major health concerns, certain types of mold, like black mold, can be extremely toxic. If you see something fuzzy growing in your bathroom, it’s more likely to be mildew than mold.

Whether it’s mold or mildew, you don’t want it growing in your bathroom to begin with. Fortunately, there are some preventative measures you can take to help reduce the likelihood of either growing in your home in Huntington Landmark, CA. First, non-porous surfaces, like acrylic, are a better option than tile and grout, since soap can easily collect in grout lines and encourage mildew to grow. That’s why at Reborn Bathroom Solutions, we offer tub, shower, and wall surround products made from 100 percent virgin acrylic.

Additionally, our products come with Silver Shield™ antimicrobial technology, which further hinders the growth of mold and mildew. Silver Shield™ infuses our acrylic products with silver ions, which have natural antimicrobial properties. When a surface with Silver Shield™ gets wet, it activates the silver ions to inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microbes.

As your bathroom remodeling contractors, Reborn Bathroom Solutions will provide options that will help solve the problem of mold, mildew, and other microbes growing in your bathroom. After all, your bathroom should provide you with your own personal space to enjoy – not a space for mold and mildew to proliferate.

If you’re interested in having Silver Shield™ products installed in any of the bathrooms in your Huntington Landmark, CA, home, contact Reborn Bathroom Solutions today and take advantage of our special offers that could save you money on your bathroom remodel.
