Florida's humid climate and relentless rain can provide a breeding ground for mildew and other problems. But when it comes to selecting the right paint for our walls, many of us don't realize that just any old latex- or oil-based paint won't stand up against the constant assault of moisture in the air here. To get lasting results, you must invest in high-quality colors designed especially with protection from mildew growth.

This post will discuss why mildew-resistant latex paint is a good choice for Florida residents.

What is Mildew-Resistant Paint?

Mildew-resistant paint is specially formulated with microbicidal additives, making it resistant to mold and mildew growth. These paints can stand up to humid climates. Additionally, they don't just block out moisture. They also contain fungicides that actively destroy any spores, ensuring your paint job will maintain its condition for years to come.

How Mildew-Resistant Paint Works

Ordinary paint does not protect against mold growth, leaving walls and materials vulnerable to colonization. Mold-resistant paints fortified with anti-microbial properties prevent spores from accessing the substrate, thereby safeguarding painted surfaces from unwelcome microbial intruders. While it won't clean up existing mold colonies, a layer of this specialized protective coating dramatically reduces your risk for future infestations.

Kitchens, bathrooms, and basements are especially prone to this damage, requiring the most attention. Ceilings, floors, and walls in the basement will also benefit from utilizing a quality mold-resistant paint product.

Advantages of Mildew-Resistant Paint

More than just mildew-proof, mildew-resistant paint offers several other advantages.

  • It is highly durable and long-lasting — It can last years in some scenarios. Additionally, mildew-resistant paints are water-repellent and provide superior coverage, making them great for surfaces that get wet frequently or are exposed to moisture.
  • It is also easy to clean with a damp cloth — It makes it much easier to keep your walls looking fresh.
