Mold around window sills


We are full timers and are staying in the Pacific Northwest. We've been finding mold around the window sills and are concerned this may be a problem. Has anyone ever had any experience with this? What can we do to eliminate it from coming back?

Are you having a lot of condensation on your windows? You may need to crack a roof vent open a bit to let out excess humidity, or buy a small dehumidifier.

Gitarwmn's partner here.

We have a dehumidifier for up to 1000 square feet, a gun safe dehumidifier for a cabinet in the bedroom where condensation collects, and a Dry-Z-Air under our sink. All are working 24-7, non-stop. We have two roof vents open with Maxx Air covers. We have heaters running all day, all night long. We have an air purifier fan running.

This is getting ridiculous.

You may have a little problem or a Really BIG Problem. If your unit is getting water beads around or on windows that is an easy fix. Dry everything. Crack a ceiling vent as your unit is trapping the moisture from what you breathe. Use Hyd peroxide to kill the mold in a solution of water and dish soap. get everything dry. you can also use a bleach solution but it smells and isn't good for you to breathe to much. if the problem persists then you need to check your caulking on seems, room, anything bolted or fastened to your exterior wall for leaks. safe travels... ed

Double pain window should help with sweating. Don't know what you have. Not something you could feasibly add, unless you change RVs.
