You can spray, rinse and then spray again as a protective barrier to keep mold and mildew from coming back.

  1. Get a non-bleach mold and mildew spray from your local hardware store or online.

  2. Spray the mold heavily to saturate it. Allow the mold to remain wet for 15 minutes. It will begin to dissolve in this time.

  3. Rinse the mold with fresh water. The mold will literally come off by itself. Spray the surface area again with the mold spray, and allow it to dry. This will leave a protective barrier against recurring mold infestation.

  4. Warning

    Always wear a face mask when spraying mold so that you don't inhale any mold spores.

Warnings

  • The EPA recommends that you wear face protection to prevent mold spores from entering your body.
  • If there is mold hidden beneath surfaces, behind wall paper, or inside of walls, you need to take additional precautions that are beyond the scope of this article.
