I have not had mould inside however I have got it on paving as per the picture.
Though is that mould or ???
My kids had mould when they lived in Darwin and things like books would get mould on them due to the constant humidity.
Yep. One of the places I used to live had a really bad mould problem. There was a leak that caused water to build up inside one of the walls and the foundation so everything- the walls, ceiling, furniture- kept going mouldy faster than I could clean it up. I couldn't do much about it until the leak was fixed (not my house). Mould is gross. :( I've had it in my bathroom once or twice too, but that's an easy fix, you just go over it with some exit mould and be more careful about not letting the moisture build up in there (ventilate properly, and you can even give the shower a quick rub down after showering if you want).
My dear family had a similar attraction though rather small scale when I was growing up!! I have never forgotten my delight at discovering anything new at all. We were so very inspired by The Fairy Tree in the fabulous Fitzroy Gardens.This was a favourite weekend destination for a picnic when I was little!
We used to get mould in our laundry, due to clothes drying, and the heat and moisture from the dryer. Since we have repainted the house a few years ago, we haven't had any problems with mould. A lot of the paints these days have an anti mould product in them. So no more mould. YEAH!!!
I buy the inside cleaner, but some do smell....so I use 'magic-sponge', from the $2 shop....in a long pkt. Works wonders, you just have to keep a bucket close to clean the sponge, each time you use it.
Smell free too! they are the best.
Outside, I use a strong bleach straight on concrete, but the very thick one....so then just put onto the areas with a plastic watering can .
Sometimes I use a little water mixed in to do bigger areas, and use maybe 5-6 bottles.
Let it set into the concrete, and hose off 6 hrs later.(just make sure where the 'washing off go's'...
Moss on the other hand is wonderful on pots and some fences.AND! I think that is green moss in the Picture....but, some folk like it to look clean, which is ok too.
Mould is very different...anyway, in the house it turns black, and not good.Need to get rid of it quickly.
I had to throw out some clothes due to mould in a wardrobe too. Tenants can sometimes cause the problem through negligence, like if they were supposed to clean the gutters and didn't and it caused a problem, but some things a landlord would have to handle. You'd think even if it was their fault they could give them a chance to fix it instead of just evicting them. So unfair.
Thanks, my thoughtful ladies!!! I HAVE actually used vinegar at times! I haven't had mould for such a long time now that I do believe that I have used both remedies over the years!! Maybe the final one WAS the vinegar?
Bleach does kill mould. White vinegar works just as well though, and is cheaper and you don't have to deal with bleach fumes. You have to be careful though to use multiple cloths and buckets so you don't recontaminate by using a cloth full of mould on a fresh surface. It's time consuming but does work.
Ah Yes, Jennifer!! Thank you.... Now I do recall that the last mould elimination was definitely Vinegar! I hated all the masks etc involved when using the bleach so I changed to the easier option. For me, it was also much safer!!!
I had a small patch on the bathroom ceiling but as the window was always open when showering I couldn't understand why it was there. Further investigation showed it was caused by a broken roof tile which was replaced by a handyman and the ceiling cleaned and painted with a mould inhibiting paint. Having mould in the house can make you sick.
One house had what I thought was a very patchy paint job on the ensuite ceiling. Washed it with vinegar and had a sparkling clean ceiling ever since. How embarrassing. However, there was no exhaust fan and I had a Tastic put in, so I think that solved the primary issue.
I have mould on the en-suite shower ceiling, & I've now noticed it on some of the shower tiles, so I'll try vinegar on those. Thanks to everyone here for your great ideas of getting rid of it. I haven't been sick, but I've been having coughing fits every day/night for about 3 or 4 years. I've had heaps of hospital tests, but they still have no clue as to why I've coughing. My mum asked me years ago if it was from the mould in the house. It's also on the laundry ceiling. I also don't have a fan in the ensuite, but I do always keep the window open, & I do have quick showers.
