You know the familiar smell. A damp, unpleasant odor, or a
feeling that something in your RV just isn’t “right.”

These are all the familiar symptoms of RV mildew. And what’s
worse, the longer you let them linger, the worse they’ll get. The problem is,
too many RV owners are hesitant to effectively clean RV mildew because they’re
(rightly) afraid that using chemical-laden products could damage some of the
materials inside their RVs.

We have a few tips for clean, RV-friendly mildew removal
that eliminates these worries once and for all. But first: to defeat your
enemy, you first have to know your enemy.

How Mildew Works &
Why It Matters

Mildew is essentially mold. Scientifically, they’re closely related
cousins. And when it comes to general use of the term “mildew” around the house
or RV, people use them interchangeably. That means that if you have a “mildew”
problem, you also likely have a “mold’ problem. Knowing that one fact alone is
usually motivation enough to get to work.

Mildew tends to form when the following prerequisites are
present:

  • Humidity- 62-93% percent is the sweet spot
  • Food source- Anything organic
  • Warmth

Knowing this, you have a blueprint for preventing mildew:
you’ll want to keep your RV as dry as possible, keep it clean of organic
material (if you have plants, be sure to keep them contained and separated from
the rest of the RV), and, if you can, air condition your RV. Not only will this
keep the temperatures down, but it also helps keep your RV dry.

What are the Best
Products for Eliminating Mildew?

If you read around online, you’ll find a few “home remedy”
methods for getting rid of mildew. One of the most popular involves vinegar.
And, indeed, many of these solutions work just fine—if you’re talking about
cleaning around the kitchen.

But we’re talking about cleaning up mildew in the middle of
an RV. There are materials to
consider. There’s the lingering smell of vinegar to consider. It’s much easier
on you—and your RV—if you purchase a dedicated RV mildew cleaner like RV Mildew Remover.

The advantages here:

  • Chlorine-free
  • Acid-free
  • Minimal lingering odor

The first two elements are important because you’ll want to
make sure not to damage any of the fabrics and materials in your RV—and there
are a lot of different kinds to be aware of. With a chlorine-free, acid-free
formula, you’ll be able to spray more liberally in order to ensure that the
mildew you’re getting rid of is completely and thoroughly eliminated.
