Hi Cora,
Thanks for your email, I would start by cleaning and killing the mould and Mildew with Mould and Mildew cleaner by Fluxaf. I would highly recommend using this as most mould cleaners will only clean the surface and not kill the mould growth. Then I would use a product called Perma White made by Zinsser. This product is available in a matt and a Satin Finish. Is available in white but can be mixed into a light or med shade colour.

Perma white is suitable as a topcoat and contains a biocide that prevents further growth of mould and mildew spurs.  It’s a water based product, so it’s also low odour and washable. Its touch-dry after 30 min, and recoatable after 2 hours.

    Painting over mould preventing paint usually renders it ineffective

      Hi Robk, in our expert opinion, it does. We would recommend that you overcoat with a product called Zinsser Perma White in a matt finish. This is a mould and meldew proof paint. This is available in 1ltr , 2.5ltr, and 5ltr in a white finish and can be tinted into a light/med colour.

      Hi Roisin, we sell Fluxaf, which is a much better product. This is available in all our stores nationwide. Hope that helps 🙂
