Fix the source of the leak
Fix the source of the leak before repairing water stains.
Mix cleaning solution
Mix a solution of three parts water and one part bleach in the bucket.
Scrub away mold
Apply the solution with a large sponge and scrub away any mold. After 20 minutes, rinse the spot with a clean sponge and dry it with paper towels.
Use a brush or roller to apply a stain-blocking primer to cover the area and ensure that the stain does not come back.
Repaint the area, if necessary, when the primer is dry. You can now sleep soundly knowing your ceiling and walls are as good as new.
