    Hi! Tony,

    I enjoyed your article. It is very informative. I do not want to risk the health of my family.So, being a stay-at-home mom, I am making sure to follow your advices.We live in an apartment building but we do not have exhaust fan in our washroom,so after shower ,we just leave the door open.I got interested about the Mold-Resistant Paint.You are right, the paint is for mold prevention not to cure the mold .So, before painting the walls, it is advisable to clean it first before painting it.Are you saying, that there is a special paint for mold in the market?Other than this, I learned a lot from your article. All the best!

      Thank You Shierly for your comment.

      I would clean the walls before with at least 50% bleach and water. I have other cleaners listed in the menu that would do a better job. This will prevent any mold or mildew to bloom after painting. Better safe than sorry!

      You will mostly find mold resistant primer in the big box stores. Sherwin-Williams has mold resistant paint which can be purchased at their stores.
