Mildew is a slimy fungus that grows in high humidity and warm temperatures. Unfortunately, when mildew grows on concrete, it looks like brown-green slime, plus the mildew can make the concrete surface dangerously slippery. Most often mildew grows in the summer and is difficult to prevent, but here's one method of cleaning mildew from concrete floors.
