How do I clean a moldy bathroom prior to painting?
By Bill from CA
My understanding is, you can clean up mold with water and bleach, Then paint the area with "Kilz" paint.
Should I use bleach to get rid of mold? No! Although bleach will kill and decolorize mold, it does not remove mold. Soap and water and scrubbing can remove mold from hard surfaces. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) agree that bleach or other biocides should not be used to clean up mold.
Using the Kilz certainly wouldn't hurt after soap and water scrubbing though :-)
I just had my home professionally painted. I had mold in my bathroom. They cleaned it with a mixture of water and bleach. Since the paint job, there has been no further mold and the paint job is great.
