Using specialised mould removing solutions may not be the cheapest or environmentally friendliest solution, or the most convenient and easily sourced like household products such as bleach, but it is definitely one of the most effective solutions. It’s my preferred choice, because they’re only designed to do one thing- kill mould.
I’m going to discuss a particular anti-mould solution by Polycell, the 3 in 1 Mould Killer in this article, simply because I’ve used it successfully in the past. It’s available to purchase for approximately £5.00. However, there are dozens of other similar products available on the market.

Once your mould colony is treated, it is important to understand that it grew for a reason in the first place. Mould grows due to environment conditions, and in order to prevent the infestation from developing again, some changes may need to be made to your home and/or habits.
