Mildew Stains

Mildew can be a big problem. If you simply paint over it, you will have it come right back through the new paint relatively quickly. The best thing is to thoroughly clean the mildew. This can be done with a solution of one part household bleach to three parts warm soapy water. For large exterior areas, powerwashing is a good idea to remove it.

If the mildew areas are on the interior of your home, it is highly recommended that you use an oil (alkyd) stain killer product to seal them and prevent bleed through. Alkyd stain killer products are very hazardous, and you should plan to evacuate the area for at least 6-8 hours for drying time. A face mask should definitely be worn when using these products. The alkyd stain killer works much better than the latex, so it is worth the trouble of using them.
