Question

Bathroom mold problem


Need help,

Upstairs bathroom as serious mold problem most likely due to aged vent fan.

Need to take care of this asap before mother in law comes in 2 weeks. My wife (and me too) wants to gut bathroom and start over. We don't have the $$$ for that just yet.

I need a quick clean, scrub and paint solution to my problem. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Alan

fix the fan. clean with bleach and water. Use Zinserr's Perma White paint for primer and top coats. The active midicide will control your mold and mildew problems.

Over the weekend I used this spray my wife got. Didn't need to do the bleach. You're right about the fan though. Need to change that ASAP.

Thanks again for your help.

Bleach is what is used and what works. Possibly the spray contains the same ingredients?
