This Worries Me – Mildew??

July 8, 2020


These little specs of brownish red, and also circular patterns of a powdery grey/black substance, were dispersed throughout the backing of the Serena & Lily grasscloth I hung today.

What worries me is that they look like mildew that I have encountered in homes that have moisture problems. And mold and mildew can work their way through wallpaper, causing discoloration, and even interfering with adhesion.

Possibly the factory is not climate-controlled, and mildew was able to get a foothold on some of their product??

Let’s hope that my worries are unfounded. Only time will tell.
