How to clean mould off walls before painting

Customer Enquiry:

"I’m looking for advice on how to clean the walls from the mould before painting and then what paint or paint additive to use to prevent the mould occurrence."

Our Recommendation:

  1. To remove the mould we recommend Fluxaf Mould & Mildew Stain Remover. This is a spray that you leave on the surface for 5 minutes and then wipe the mould clean.
  2. Follow with two coats of our Ray’s Primer.  This paint is a shellac-based primer with excellent blocking & sealing properties. It’s available in 500ml, 1L, 2.5L and 5L sizes.
  3. We also stock an anti-mould solution for adding into paint called VC175. One bottle can be added to up to 10 litres of paint.
