Mildew Removal


While a pressure washer can be used to clean painted surfaces, the most effective method utilizes chemical cleaning agents and a low pressure process.

A chemical injector attached to the pressure washer allows for rapid and thorough application of the cleaning solution.

The most common cleaning solutions use chlorine bleach to kill mildew and mold, and a detergent to loosen dirt. The solution should be applied and allowed to activate for a period of 10 to 15 minutes, and then the surface should be thoroughly rinsed.

Additional applications of the solution may be necessary, particularly in areas with heavy mildew growth. A pump up sprayer can be used to treat small areas with a more concentrated solution.

High pressure water will remove most visible dirt and mildew. However, pressurized water will not kill mildew, nor the mold spores which cause it. These mold spores are always present in the air, and given the proper conditions, will grow on virtually any surface.

Mildew requires a temperature range of 40 to 90 degrees, sufficient moisture, and nutrients to grow. Air borne contaminants, such as dirt and dust make mildew growth an inescapable fact of life.

Mildew is a fungus which consumes organic materials. Because paint (as well as most construction materials) contain organic compounds, mildew growth can be destructive to these materials.
