kill it with fire

Best Answer

Mold can cause all kinds of serious health issues, breathing problems and headaches and general illness. Don't just scrub it off the wall, make sure the room is well ventilated 1st, windows only, you don't want it going in the air throughout the house or inhaling it into your lungs.

bleach and lots of it. If its somewhat new construction, it may be replaced for you. <br />
as an alturnitive, there is a product called "kilz" which seals the sheetrock., I've heard its excellent (and expensive). good luck with your mold problem

Have a feeling it's been there a good few months at least.

sorry I wasn't being clear. I wasn't asking how long the mold wa there, rather how long the wall was there? is it a fairly new home? built around 5 years ago?

Best Answer

We've lived in this house about 5 years but it's not a new home, it was previously owned and we believe it's been around a while.

Best Answer

it was a thought. well I would get a spray bottle and use bleach. (mixed with water) if its really bad, consider replacing the section of sheetrock. its not hard to do you could do it yourself (moving the sheetrock yourself might be difficult, but you could get a friend to help. I'm a firm believer girls should and can do things for themselves (if they want to)
