How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates The Mould Removers
As we own several properties (rentals and Airbnb’s), we often have to tackle black mould. From our experience, it mostly occurs in the bathroom and areas where there is a lack of ventilation. However, regardless of how it was caused, black mould is relatively easy to remove when using an effective mould remover.
As you can see in the photo, we recently tackled mould upon some bathroom tiles and sealant using the HG Mould Spray. The formula got to work straightaway and for some areas, it didn’t even require any agitation either. It’s important to note that although this formula states that it’s for bathroom use, it also works great on walls, which we put to the test in the video below.
During our ongoing testing, we analyse the formula’s effectiveness, ease of use, odour output and ability to prevent mould from reoccurring. We also test the mould removers in several applications that include the bathroom, on plaster walls and a range of other surfaces.
We posted a video on our YouTube channel where we tested our best-rated mould remover (HG Spray) and as you can see, it’s very easy to apply and from the before and after photos below, you can see that it certainly worked as all the black mould had been removed.
Before and After Photos:
To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest mould removers (for this article), we are continually testing the latest formulas from top brands in the UK. This means that when we notice a brand has released a new and improved mould remover, we will attempt to buy it and put it to the test (where applicable).
As well as our experience and testing of multiple mould removers, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the formulation, ease of use, compatible surfaces, effectiveness, ability to prevent the mould from reoccurring and value for money.
