‘Effective’ ways to banish mould from surfaces – also ‘eliminates’ musty mould smells

Baking soda

Also known as bicarbonate of soda, this common baking ingredient is a brilliant cleaner. The item is to use around both humans and pets, absorbs excess moisture and acts as a deodoriser in fridges and rooms.

Bicarbonate of soda’s deodorising powers can help to remove musty smells mould can leave behind. Baking soda has a high pH that inhibits the growth and survival of mould. However, baking soda cannot eradicate the bacteria entirely and is less effective on porous surfaces.

Don’t paint over it

It can be tempting to simply paint over mould but it will soon reappear on the surface as it will simply grow into the paint.

Even if you keep painting over it, the spores will still release into the air and disperse throughout the house.
