Q: How can I remove bathroom ceiling mold / mildew?

I have a bathroom with mold / mildew on the ceiling. but nothing on the walls. I think I’ve tracked the issue down to using a basic ceiling white paint on the ceiling, but using a better paint on the walls which included a built in fungicide.

OK, I would like to repaint. I plan to use a paint with a fungicide on both the ceiling and walls, but realize that I need to kill the mold spores before doing anything.

Q: Why does MoldSTAT plus work better than bleach?

MoldSTAT Plus Product Review

4.9 out of 5 stars
I have been using cleaner today MoldSTAT mold removal products for 5 years with excellent results. I removed the stains from my roof, cleaned mold out of my basement walls, cleaned exterior mold off brick, and now I have just fogged my air ducts which had a strong unidentified oder.

In each case the MoldSTAT product provided worked well and even more importantly the mold problems did not return.

Great products, great prices, quick shipping and well packed boxes.

Mold is everywhere, but under control
The reality about mold is that molds are just part of nature. Without mold, last year’s leaves and yard waste would not be broken down. Mold spreads in nature through airborne spores, that are too small to be seen. The spores land, and when water is present, they grow and spread. Without water, mold won’t grow. But outdoors, humidity, rain, even the morning’s dew all provide mold with the water moisture needed to grow and thrive. Continue reading
