    If so, the mold is growing on the surface of the paint. Its the food it needs to grow. Simply clean it well using a good

    Clean with a good bathroom cleaner (esp one for mold.) Seal it with a good masonary paint. Paint with a mold preventer in your color choice. I used Kilz Paint tinted in my desired color. You'll want to make sure it is sealed from the outside too.

    Do NOT use bleach products! use a good product for Black Mold, and do not use one that you spray as when you spray these spores will travel and can and will get into your lungs and grow, they will cause severe health problems and even death. Make sure

    Laurie is right. Clean with anything you want it only matters that you remove the spores and mold using a damp towel or sponge. You can then spray something to sanitize and bleach works great. Just be sure to use the bleach at a diluted level about 20%

    Bleach will kill some of the spores and bleach it so the mold doesnt show but pure white vinegar will kill it.There right about spraying it will put the spores into the air

    Need to clear some things up about bleach and mold.

    Bleach that you purchase over the counter even that stuff that says for mold, is not nearly strong enough to kill many molds
