Mildew and mold are the biggest problems for boats during winter lay-up, whether they are stored inside or outside. Mildew is a living thing, a boater’s enemy that requires diligent attention to defeat.
The solution is a 3 step process.
- Clean It – There are many specialty products developed expressly for this problem. Visit the Pat at the Fox Chapel Marine Boater’s Store for step by step explanation of the process
- Dry it – Don’t put your boat away wet. Make sure it is dry and use moisture absorbers to keep it dry over the storage period
- Kill the mildew in the air – There are fast release chemicals, slow release chemicals and natural (teatree oil) methods for preventing the spread of mildew.
