PR year #3. A few months ago we finally moved out of the urbanización after happily finding our dream house, in a "semi-campo" area up on a hill. We now have a balcony, a beautiful view and breezes! No a/c needed! Yay! We have been so happy with our new place. But recently I started noticing mildew smell in the cabinets and closets, and have discovered my shoes, purses, belts and some clothes ruined with mildew 😫. Had to throw a bunch of pillows and linens out. I had been so happy with all the money we are saving by not needing a/c in this house, but I didn't realize that would cause a different problem!!! There are no water leaks that I can see....I believe it is just from the air, we are near the ocean.
Any típs on managing mildew besides installing a/c or dehumidifier? I really love the open windows and fresh breezes at this house! That is the main reason we moved... but I don't want all our things getting moldy. 😩
