    The only way to remove black mold permanently is to change the conditions allowing the mold to grow. That's usually difficult to do. Mold grows in dark, damp places. Mold usually grows on the north side of houses.

    You can clean the surfaces with products made for mold removal or you can rove mold with a diluted 1 to 5 bleach solution. Spray it on, let it work and remove with a pressure washer on a wide setting so you do g damage the surfaces.

    Condrobium is a product that removes and prevents regrowth.

    I have never found a way to permanently remove it. You can clean it and eliminate the current situation with a good cleaning and scrubbing with a bleach solution, but unless you can eliminate the conditions causing the mold to grow (insufficient sun, condensation, etc), it will always come back. We powerwash several times a year, especially in our humid summers.

    We use one too, but the mold comes back a few weeks later. I was wondering if there is a permanent solution to prevent the mold from returning.

    Once you see mold, it’s already a big enough problem to consider hiring a professional to get rid of it.
