Overview

Mould is a type of fungi that can build up quickly in moist, unventilated places like bathrooms or laundries. Making sure your bathroom is free from mould keeps it looking fresh and a much healthier place to be. The simplest way to remove mould is to use an anti-mould spray and a bit of old fashioned elbow grease.

Tools and materials

Steps

1Spray the anti-mould cleaner onto the mould

Spray the anti-mould directly onto the mouldy areas, making sure to follow the instructions on the bottle. Then simply wait a few minutes for the spray to do its job. There are lots of different anti-mould sprays to choose from, including some designed for delicate painted surfaces.

2Wipe the surface clean

After you've left the anti-mould spray to do its job (the instructions on the pack should tell you how long), grab a cloth and wipe it clean. If the mould is not coming off straight away, a little application of elbow grease should help. For the hard to reach areas like grout, it's a great idea to use an old toothbrush.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
