    A dehumidifier can be very helpful.

    Eliminate the source of the problem is the first important recommendation to consider.

    It may be beneficial to use a device to reduce moisture such as dehumidifier, kitchen or bathroom fans.

    Next, wipe down all surfaces with white cleaning vinegar to kill any mold spores. Looking over the properties of Damp-rid and OdoBan Possibly checking out reviews and Q&A’s might help you see if the product might be a solution for you.

    You need to stop the moisture. Maybe install a dehumidifier that would drain into an existing drain like a kitchen sink.

  • Hi Mirian - There are several ways to get rid of mold, but most importantly, you need to address the root cause to keep it from returning. This article focuses on the bathroom, but is an overall great article that covers methods of how to remove mold, if bleach is safe to use, and how to prevent it from coming back. Hope this helps!
