What is the difference between mold and mildew?

Mold and mildew are both fungi and their spores are always flying through the air.  Basements often provide perfect growing conditions for both as they thrive in humid, damp conditions.  Mildew is commonly gray or white.  Mold is usually black, red, green, brown, or a combination of these colors.

Musty basement odor

Mildew is famous for causing that familiar musty basement odor.  Getting rid of mold and mildew, along with installing some type of basement ventilation system, will help stop the odor but most important is getting rid of what is causing the mold and mildew — the moisture in the basement.  If your basement continually gets wet, you likely need to have a French drain or pressure relief system installed.

Testimonials

This was the second visit by Vulcan – the service technicians were very professional and did an amazing job – reviewed the project with me and explained what they were going to do and why they needed to do it – then they started right in and did the work. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking to get a water issue resolved in their basement.

Great service, very knowledgable staff and hard working crew! Install went well: 160 linear feet of underdrain pipe and crushed stone with 2 sump pits (one pit with 1 pump and the other upper pit with 2 pumps). Pumps run fine when needed. We now have a dry finished basement with peace of mind. Thanks Vulcan, great job!

Our basement flooded several times and had water level of up to 4 feet in one corner of the house. Vulcan assessed the situation and added french drains and new sump pump. They were very professional and not too costly. We haven’t had any issues since, this was in early 2000s.
