Mildew is unsightly and potentially harmful, but also relatively easy to get rid of.
You will need
- Non-ammonia laundry detergent
- 2 gallons warm water
- Two buckets
- Rubber gloves
- Eye protection
- A face mask
- A scrub brush
- Clean water
- A long-sleeved shirt (optional)
Step 1 Remove moisture Remove the source of moisture that is feeding the mildew. Mildew can’t survive in a completely arid environment.
Step 2 Mix solution Mix the bleach and laundry detergent with the warm water in the bucket.
Step 3 Suit up Put on the gloves, your eye protection, and your face mask.
Wear a long-sleeved shirt to protect your arms.
Step 4 Commence scrubbing Dip your brush in the cleaning solution, and scrub the wall.
Scrub gently, in long strokes, so as not to damage the paint.
Step 5 Clean Use the rag with a bucket of clean water to rinse off the cleaning solution.
Step 6 Let dry Allow the wall to dry, either by wiping it with a dry rag or letting it air dry.
