Mildew is more than just an ugly stain; it's a living fungus that anchors itself to bathroom surfaces—and it won't go away until you kill it at its roots. Mildew is usually black but can appear pink, red or green. Highly humid areas have the most mildew growth.
Mildew often grows in bathrooms and other locations in the house because there is a combination of poor ventilation, moisture and food sources (i.e., body oil, soap scum, paint and oxygen). In the bathroom, mildew can grow anywhere: in grout, in shower tracking, on windowsills, on the ceiling and under the sink.
Mildew grows in grout because it is a porous surface that can be constantly wet. Mildew is also often found on bathroom ceilings because of poor ventilation and a ready supply of food and moisture. In addition, mildew can grow behind caulk if its watertight seal has been broken. Unfortunately once mildew moves behind the caulk, it is hard to penetrate with a cleaner. If this is the case, you should get professional cleaning assistance.
Mildew needs moisture, a source of nutrition and the right temperature to grow. To prevent mildew from growing, you need to improve ventilation in your bathroom by installing a fan or opening a window.
Tilex® Mold & Mildew Remover is designed to kill and remove tough mildew without damaging most bathroom surfaces. It penetrates and lifts off soap scum with detergent-type ingredients (surfactants) to kill the mildew lurking below the surface. Plus the bleach in Tilex® Mold & Mildew Remover decolorizes mildew and kills it
