How do you prevent or remove mould?

However, you need to address the underlining issue, trapped moisture in the room or wall. Moisture absorbers can be helpful if placed within the room.

 

I've found a quarter teaspoon of oil of cloves in a litre of water is a great way to kill and prevent mould on most surfaces. Through my experience, it has been more effective than bleach-based products and is kinder on the lungs. - MitchellMc
