Does my home have mould or mildew?
Mould and mildew grow in similar warm and humid conditions, so how can you tell what kind of damp problem you’re dealing with? In terms of appearance, mildew is usually grey, white or yellow and has a furry or powdery texture. Mould, on the other hand, is usually green or black and has a slimy texture, it is also more difficult to remove from surfaces.
Ultimately, mould and mildew can grow wherever the necessary warm and humid conditions are met, like in bathrooms and kitchens. You usually find mould on food sources like bread and cheese, or dark, damp spaces like cupboards and sheds, though it can also grow on walls. Mildew, on the other hand, is often found growing on fabrics, paper and other organic materials, though also commonly affects walls and ceilings.

Is mildew dangerous?
Exposure to mildew over a prolonged period can result in certain respiratory problems like coughing and wheezing, as well as cause headaches. However, it is generally agreed that mould is the more harmful of the two fungi, and can cause long-term health problems, especially for those with underlying conditions or allergies.
