To get rid of mould on walls with mould spray you may want to soak up some of our top tips!
The two that we have used the most, and can highly recommend come highly rated directly from Amazon. The ‘Astonish Mould & Mildew Remover’ and the ‘HG Mould Spray’. The latter is listed as an Amazon ‘Best Seller’. My view is that both work excellently.
The real problem areas that these products are trying to target are surfaces like glass, tiles and the rubber sealant that is starting to rot around your bath. However it can be effective on walls. Be careful with how much you use at a time. These substances contain very strong bleach that give off strong odours. These will likely make you nauseous and even give you a headache alongside perhaps worse side effects. So be sure to clear the room!
Just be sure to go careful as rubbing it on a painted surface is likely to ruin the paint work.
As these products don’t mention use on painted or papered walls, we would would advise to not try and apply on these materials. However, with our daring nature at MR, we can say that we have tried this and the results were as follows:
Wallpaper – Successful, on a dark coloured wallpaper.
Painted Wall – Unsuccessful, as you might imagine, the sprays would rub the paint away.
If you’re feeling very brave and in your last resort (and you choose to ignore our advice), be sure to apply it in very small areas and begin with dabbing it on after spraying a cloth.
The question “Does bleach remove mould?” has often seemed to be misconceived as a myth. The answer though, is yes. It does kill mould and in a similar fashion to the two mould sprays listed above. You can obviously expect it to be slightly less effective though as it’s lacking a couple of the crucial mould killing ingredients.
More Serious Cases Where you won’t be able to get rid of Mould on Walls with Mould Spray
