Bathroom Paint and Mildew
I have a small bathroom (that doesn't have great ventilation) in the interior of a condo in Florida. I have lived here for about 13 years and within the past year I have noticed small mildew (or perhaps mold?) spots that are about the size of a pen dot on the painted celling and wall above the shower area. I've tried to clean them off using things like clorox mildew remover a few times and more keep appearing.
It hasn't been painted the entire time I have been here - is it possible that the "mildew resistant" qualities of the paint have worn off over these years which is why I am just seeing these spots now? I've heard you should not paint over mildew (or mold) - is there a high quality mildew resistant paint that I could use and be safe? I know this isn't the forum to ask..but any trick to removing the spots... should I skip the fancy sprays and just do a bleach mixture?
Thanks for any help!
