How do I remove mould on an interior brick wall that has not been painted? We are going to paint it after that.
The first thing that comes to mind is a product called 30 Seconds Mould Off. It’s an interior mould killer that come in a trigger pack (squirt bottle).
Using this product is fairly simple. All you’ll need to do is spray the area, leave it for 5 minutes and then rinse off and wipe down with a damp cloth. Reapply if necessary.
This product is designed for interior use and is less pungent than exterior grade products. So it should get the job done, but it’s just not as powerful as the exterior mould removing products that are typically used for bricks on the outside of the home.
The great thing about this product is that it’s biodegradable, so it’s good for the environment. And it won’t cause any major irritations as it doesn’t have a high chlorine content as the exterior products do.
When painting afterwards be aware that moisture on the surface of the brick may be a problem / possibility. Wash And Wear Kitchen And Bathroom is a product designed to prevent mould regrowth and worth considering as the paint that you’ll apply as a finish coat. It’s available in low sheen and semi gloss. Berger also have a similar Everlast Kitchen and Bathroom product.
Because all paint products are unique and different and have their own layers of complexity, we always recommend visiting your nearest Inspirations Paint store and speaking with our expert staff about the finer details of your paint project to make sure you get the job done right the first time.
Hope this helps. Be sure to let us know how you go.
Polished hardwood floors. I want to paint them white. Do I have to sand them back to bare first? What paint do I paint with?
I am going to paint internal brick walls which have bagged render on them. How do I best clean and prepare the surface to paint, they are highly textured and rough. Thanks
