The tropics are an ideal place for mold to flourish. A warm, moist climate is perfect for explosive mold growth. Some places in Hawaii receive as much as 125 inches of rainfall per year.

Roughly speaking, there are two seasons in Hawaii: from November through April the climate is cooler and more humid, with daily high temperatures of about 81°F and lows of 65°F at night. More rain falls during the cooler season, but there are also many lovely sunny days. From June through October the climate is warmer and drier with daily high temperatures of about 84°F and lows of 70°F at night. Most people divide the year into two climate periods — the Dry Season and the Humid Season. With average humidity levels at 63% in Honolulu year around, plus the warm temperatures, mold can flourish.

It is impossible to prevent airborne mold spores from entering a building unless you set up a completely sterile environment — both impractical and nearly impossible. Therefore, one way to control the growth of mold is to reduce the amount of relative humidity inside a home or office building. A good humidifier can keep humidity levels between 30-50%. Even then, mold is tenacious and can still take hold. And while controlling humidity indoors may control mold growth in a building, the outdoor surfaces in Hawaii are still fair game to mold.

I have been using Mold Off® for the last 10 years and am completely sold on it. I have used it on wood, composite decking, the vinyl on my boat and more. The ease of application, wait 24 hours and all mold is gone. I have sprayed my Sunsetter awning too. It’s GREAT!
