I had a sky light leak and black mold started to grow through the sheetrock in the ceiling. I treated it and repainted thinking it was taken care of. Now the mold is growing back through the new application of paint.
Which product would you recommend to kill the black mold on an interior ceiling?
If you read through our MOLD CONTROL ARTICLE, you’ll learn it’s key getting to the source of the problem. In a case like this, no doubt the problem is a leak somewhere allowing water/moisture to get inside the ceiling void. That means the first step is finding the leak and correcting the problem. Once the leak is fixed, you can treat the mold.
To treat the mold, use the product in the article called MOLD BLASTER. This can be injected via our FOAMING TOOL, sprayed into the void using a PUMP SPRAYER or just wiping down the area if you have direct access to the space. The ceiling sheetrock can also be treated by wiping it down with a Mold Blaster solution. This will kill the mold but it won’t offer any long term prevention.
To prevent mold from regrowing, treat the same areas with MOLD BLOCKER. This can be applied the same way as the Mold Blaster. Keep in mind Mold Blocker won’t kill mold so don’t use it till you know the source of the problem has been fixed and that you’ve killed all the mold growing.
