Summertime is upon us and so is the long awaited camping season! For many avid campers, owning a large trailer or RV is a must but for those who do not want to sleep on the ground, but still want a taste of roughing it in the woods, ideally, the pop-up trailer is the answer. Pop-up trailers are an asset to any camping trip, however, they can pose an issue for mold. If the camper is stored unprotected where it can get wet or is surrounded by a humid environment, it can be at risk of growing mold. Factors such as how old the trailer is or if there is a leak can all contribute to a thriving environment for various types of mold.
Since pop-up trailers open up on two different sides, it is essential to check all vulnerable spaces in these areas. Mold could also be found on the inside, on the tent canvas where the sides pop out. It can also grow around a skylight area on the ceiling and the vinyl covering the screened windows. Anywhere water and moisture can make its way in, you should be checking for mold. It can be a hassle to clean before a summer full of camping adventures but there are solutions to fighting off and killing the mold in your camper.
If mold is left untreated in your campers, it can lead to various health issues as well as the possibility of the camper being a complete loss due to mold damage. Be prepared! There are RV covers for trailers to assist with proper storage. A thorough clean of the trailer after a long winter is a must as well. Cleaning and opening up the camper a week prior to your trip will allow air to filtrate and help to get rid of the musty smell as well. Take control of your camper and stayed ahead of the possibility of mold growth! Mold removal is dangerous so seeking professional help is strongly advised.
