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 did some research as I had a moisture problem in my basement and everything started growing white fur. Since our house is small, I was using one of the basement rooms as my closet and all of my hanging clothes, shoes and purses molded during a particularly rainy period.
It seems that vinegar is far more effective than bleach for killing the mold and is much safer and easier to use also. I just put plain white household vinegar in a spray bottle and lightly sprayed on all my clothes (including the dry-clean only ones), shoes and purses; then wiped with a cloth on the heavy mold growth areas (which had started to eat into the lining of some of my husband's suits).
The only item of clothing I had to toss was one I had used bleach on. everything else cleaned like magic. I just let them set in the sun a little while for the odor to dissipate and you never knew they had been near mold or vinegar. Trust me...it works!
