Long trips on the open road and the freedom to see the many sights along the way are what draw many to RV life. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a full-time RVer, you should be aware that white mold in your camper, mildew in your pop-up and fungus growing in your RV are problems that can crop up from time to time but should not be left untreated.
These issues stem from dampness coupled with a lack of air flow. You may think that roof leaks or sink floods are the main culprits of RV molding. However, most of the time, they form during those months when your RV is in storage. Humid storage facilities or being parked under a warm tarp are incubators for mold and mildew.
It can be tricky to clean mold and mildew properly once they’ve formed. This is why following a few tips and tricks to prevent these contaminants from forming in the first place is your best line of defense.
Mold and mildew can lead to serious health concerns. They exacerbate or even create certain respiratory complaints. Also, once mold or mildew have formed in your rig, they seriously undermine the value of your RV
It’s important to use as many methods or products as possible in the fight against mold and mildew. Not only will this protect your RV, but it will also save you money in the long run and ensure your RV is a pleasant place to be.
To spare yourself a lot of frustration and headaches, here are a few mold-and-mildew busting tips that will ensure your RV remains clean and clear of these issues.
Prevention will always be your best mold-and-mildew fighting technique. However, if you do discover either of these issues forming within your RV, ensure your rig is thoroughly cleaned and get an air purifier. This will keep you and your loved ones from breathing in mold spores.
