Why is it important to remove mold? Not only does It look gross but inhaling mold spores can cause respiratory problems, especially for people with asthma.
Properly ventilating your bathroom when you are taking a bath or shower can help prevent mold.
Keep humidity levels your house to between 40% and 60% by using an air conditioner or dehumidifier during humid months.
For the removal of the mold we have chosen to use two products that you can buy at your local home improvement store. Mold Armor Mold Blocker and Mold Armor Mildew and Mold Remover.
You need to be careful with these products. A mask, eye protection, rubber gloves and a ladder are recommended. Avoid leaving Mold Armor Mildew and Mold Remover on vinyl windows or plastic shower enclosures for more than 15 minutes.
The video shows the mold on the ceiling portions has completely disappeared. On the top of the window, where the mold was the thickest, a second application was needed. After that, all the mold has disappeared.
While these products were successful, the drawback is the expense, these two bottles cost about $15.00 combined and we only need amall mount of each to remove the mold.
It will require a little more elbow grease than using the store bought removers, but it will work.

I need to clean mold of my bathroom walls. I need to know the parts of bleach and water to mix so I can spray it on the walls. I need to clean off the mold before I paint.

I use Clorox Cleanup in the bottle. I also use it in my bathroom cleaning. It does a great job. The mold just disappears before your eyes! No need to worry about mixing!
Uaually the mixture is 1 part bleach to 2 or 3 parts water.Wear saftey glasses to protect the eyes.
Clorox Cleanup is a great product. But it also depends on how moldy the walls are. If it doesn't do the job, there is a product call Kilns. It's a paint that you can buy at any major home improvement store including Walmart. The Kilns will cover anything left that that Clorox doesn't clean. Then just paint your color choice right over the Kilns. Good Luck.
I am looking for appropriate information on removing mold above my shower on the painted ceiling. The wrong paint was used at the time.

Make a mixture of bleach and water and apply to the ceiling. In short order the mold will disappear. Rinse with water. Use eye protection. You didn't say what the wrong paint was, that was applied.
I had my bedroom wall treated for damp and mould a few months back and it seemed to cure the problem. However I've recently decorated with emultion paint, but noticed the paint won't stay on in the areas that were treated. I'm not sure what was used to treat the mould/damp, but wondered what I can do to cover the walls now?
My textured (swirled) ceiling is overrun with black mold. The bathroom has got 2 bathroom fans already (on top of bath and shower), but there is still a problem. When I used mold spray, then wiped it, the plaster also came off thus no more swirled ceiling. No matter how much I sprayed and left it on, the black spores still grow and won't come off without ruining the texture. Opening the window during a shower doesn't help. Any advice on textured ceiling mold budget removal? Urgently needed. Thanks.
