WHY MILDEW BUSTERS™
Mildew Busters™, a family run company, was the first company to offer this service on the East End back in 1981. With new “Power Washing” companies popping up all the time, and a whole host of different tradesmen purporting to be able to be “Power Washing” experts, making a decision on who to hire can be challenging. It doesn’t have to be.
You should hire Mildew Busters™ for many reasons. First, we are a family owned and run company with my two sons now running the majority of the operations successfully. Second unlike most companies, we use NO BLEACH. This is important for a number of reasons. Primarily because bleach does not kill mildew/mold. It kills the pigment in it, leaving the actual organism still there. Eventually the mildew/mold will return as a result. Equally important is that bleach by its very nature is caustic. Because of that when applied to a surface it begins to “eat” the surface. Even pressure washing does not remove all of the bleach, leaving it to gradually damage your roofs, siding and decking. Simply put, bleach is the worst possible thing you could put on the surface of your home and should be avoided at all costs.
Since 1981 we have attended seminars on cleaning exteriors and disinfecting and waterproofing basements, etc. We have also extensively researched the internet looking for environmentally safe products to clean, brighten and seal that actually work. We have found a number of them that are more effective than conventional chemicals, and result in your home looking like new when finished. More important they protect your home from the harsh elements found on the East End. In the long run this eliminates the necessity of having to replace roofs, siding or decking prematurely. Costs which always far exceed those of washing and sealing a home. We also have found and are using successfully a fully organic clear mildicide which keeps mildew from returning for at least 3 years, often longer, and also allows your cedar roof and siding to gradually turn a very transparent, silver “Driftwood” gray tone.
If your house, roof or decks are in need of washing and restoration, please call us. We will arrange to meet with you and go over your needs whether on the exterior or basement. We are experts in disinfecting, patching and waterproofing basements. We also can remove insulation contaminated by mold or rodent feces, eliminating the chance of being exposed to Hanta Virus. Then replace the insulation with an environmentally safe insulation that is moisture resistant and rodent proof.
Please call us today at 631-495-6826. We also offer many other services and will be glad to talk with you about the best possible and most cost-effective solution for your needs.

For 9 years Mildew Busters™ won Dan’s Papers “Best of the Best” in numerous categories because of the high quality of our work, and our customers dedication to us. After the 9th year we received a call from Dan’s informing us that other companies were complaining and wanted a chance to win. As a result, Dan’s created a new category called “The Hall of Fame” and Mildew Busters™ was the 1st. company to be awarded it, essentially retiring us from future competitions.
We were very grateful to Dan’s for doing this, but more so to our customers who made it possible. We now have numerous “Hall of Fame” awards, something we are very proud and grateful for.
