Mold & Mildew Cleaner
Fight mold and mildew with products from West Marine.
For boat owners, mildew prevention and removal is a task that never seems to end. The reason is that moist, dank boat interiors provide the ideal environment for the formation of mold and mildew. Of course, the best way to stave off mold and mildew is keep your boat’s cabin well ventilated. This might mean adding one or more solar ventilators, opening hatches, installing a cabin fan, heater or maybe a dehumidifier. But unfortunately, no matter how hard we try, there are plenty of hard-to-reach spaces on boats such as chain lockers and areas behind cabinetry where mold and mildew will often gain a foothold before advancing to other locations. So, sooner or later most boaters wind up investing in one or more boat mildew preventers or removers. Mold and mildew cleaners and preventers fall into two categories, which are bleach-based products and those that are bleach free. Most feature easy spray on application and are safe for use on nearly all surfaces including vinyl boat seats—but before using any of these products, be sure to read the label carefully. The leading brands of mold killers, preventers and cleaners represented at West Marine are Star brite, 3M, 303 Products and our own West Marine proprietary brand.
