well a hot, humid ,loaded with water room with 2 outside walls is just a haven for mold. Im wondering what you guys do or atleast the ones who get mold? The house has no insulation as 60 years ago when the home was built they thought brick insulated( it doesn't ) Im just wondering what you do to prevent it and what you use to clean it up because cleaning up 2 walls full of mold every week gets tireing. Help very much appreciated

Mold is best cleaned up with bleach, as it is one of the few things that kill it. <Sodium hypochlorite 10%>Also put in a dehumidifier, and get a room UV sterilizer, like Bio-zone <that is the one I have in my house>
