Cleaning and preventing mould and mildew on our walls, tiles and ceilings can be a difficult task. We are here to help. 

It is that time of the year where temperatures have fallen and of course we have our homes lovely and warm. But this difference in temperature causes condensation to occur, most notably in our bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. This condensation causes mould and mildew to appear on the ceilings, grout, tiles and fascia in our homes.

We always get asked the question, “how to clean mould on walls?" It's important you don't just ignore mould growing in your home. It can give off toxic spores and vapours which can be dangerous to your health and possibly resulting in allergic reactions, asthma and flu-like symptoms.

After a lot of testing and listening to what our customers have to say, the best mould cleaner we have found is the HG Mould Spray.

Firstly and most importantly you have to clean and kill the mould. Without any doubt one of the best products on the market for this is HG Mould Spray

  1. Spray the surface from a distance of 3 to 5 cm with HG mould spray.

  2. Leave to work for 30 minutes and then clean with water and a sponge.

Be sure to have the room well ventilated as the spray is strong.

After cleaning and killing the mould on your walls and ceilings you may be left with a stain on your walls or ceilings from where the mould was developing. This stain can be difficult to cover and we recommend Thompson's One Coat Damp Seal. Thompson’s One Coat Damp Seal permanently covers damp, water and other household stains in one coat and can be painted over after. This will prevent the stain reappearing through your top coat of paint, if you choose to repaint.

How to prevent mould coming back:

Here are some tips for preventing mould from growing in the home:

  • Fix any external entry points for moisture in your home, for example, a leaky roof or broken pipes.
  • Install a good fan in the bathroom and prevent moisture build-up on surfaces. 
  • Ventilate your home. Inadequate ventilation is one of the main reasons homes become vulnerable to mould growth. When the air stops moving, you can get a build-up of humidity and moisture in those areas. If you can't ventilate, you should consider a dehumidifier for the room.
  • Avoid air drying clothes indoors, especially without adequate ventilation.
  • Mould needs organic matter – such as dust or dead skin cells to thrive, so it's important to keep up with regular vacuuming and dusting.
