One good way is to make a fairly strong solution of bleach and water and wash affected area,(with gloves on) allow to dry. Long term , mould and mildew is caused by moisture and poor air flow. Check to see if can find any moisture entry points and try to improve air flow (install air vents in wall).

I have painted the wallpaper in my kitchen about three times about two years ago I used Dulux matt dark streaks have appeared on the outside walls condensation marks? the paint looks chalky do you think...


There are 2 types of paint I do not like, Behr and Dulux. Buy Benjamin Moore for best results. Painting wallpaper is not advised, if it is not adhered on well, you can have trouble. Streaks could be condensation, especially in a bathroom, a kitchen can also be damp because of boiling pots. Warm moist air condenses on a cool object. It could be the wall paper is losing adhesion. Check to see if the paper moves a bit when pressed. Remedy is remove the wall paper and repaint. Get all the glue off, scrape it after soaking the wall. Sand the wall, wash with TSP, rinse with clean water. If you don't do this, you will get a lousy paint job. You would be best to prime then top coat. Alternately get a paint that is self priming. In a moist area use Zinnser

Mildew has entered the inside of the plasma tv


Let me get this correct, you can see mildew/mould inside your TV? If it's inside the LCD panel (obscuring the picture etc) then I'd get the panel or TV replaced. If it's just on some of the other internal wiring and the TV still works ok I would give it a good clean with some alcohol (such as isopropanol) , perhaps put a sachet of silicon moisture absorption crystals inside the TV somewhere, seal the TV back up and hope it doesn't occur again.

Installing walk in box


This is the wrong section for Experts of this type of problem. We are Cars and Trucks Experts in this section; contact Refrigeration or something more closely matching your product.

I would imagine having reinforced floor for the weight, drains for defrosting, and cooling lines are a minimum. If the box sweats, you need mildew protection and clearance to circulate air over the box. Commercial units may use 220Volt power.

Big part will be if rollers are on bottom. If none, you are looking at forklift type carrier. Quite possible unit would be installed by removing exterior wall and inserting box, then replacing wall. You have to consider a minimum 8 foot opening which kinda limits moving through most interiors.

We have mould spots in the corner of our downstairs toilet.. started with just a small amount but now have lots. Not a patch of mould but lots of small spots. the room is on the outside corner wall of...


There is probably moisture inside the wall. Take a look at the outside of the wall to see if you can identify the source of dampness. Maybe leaves are piled against the outside of the house, or vines are growing under the siding, or a downspout is splashing against the house when it rains. Or perhaps you have something leaking down inside the wall from upstairs. You will probably need to remove a bit of the wall from inside. If it's drywall, this isn't very hard to do, but start with a small hole, maybe 6 inches across. If you find wet insulation, you should enlarge the hole and remove all of the wet stuff. Before you replace all of the wet stuff with dry stuff, you need to remove the source of the dampness. It could also be that this corner is poorly insulated and gets lots of condensation from the shower. Good luck, Al K

Is there a way to make a stud wall for a shower part transparent?


You mean clear plastic dry wall? or how about a window? How about removing the wall and putting in glass panel? Glass block? Anything can be done, depends on your imagination. An exterior wall can be totally removed with a lintel replaced in the top, and interior wall can be totally removed with no lintel, depending on trusses, or rafter placement.If you want to leave the studs exposed in the wall, I would clean them up a bit. The problem with that is you can't clean it and the panels are subject to fogging up inside, condensation will get in there, an exterior wall is a bad idea, no insulation. Hope this helps.

I would like remove old vinyl shower wall and install a tile wall. but do i have to remove the drywall also? I'm keeping the shower base.


if the sheetrock is in good shape you should not have any problems. If you are worried about mold and mildew, you might want to change out the drywall with either green coat or yellow coat- these are mold and mildew resistant
