Cleaning a wall with damp spots can be a simple task, as long as mold has not appeared, since the latter will make it more difficult for you to get rid of them and you will have to repeat the processes several times to achieve it.

Baking soda can also be of great help when it comes to removing moisture stains from the walls

Put some baking soda on a sponge dampened with water or lemon juice, rub the stains, wait 15 minutes or more, and remove it. If there are still spots, repeat the operation.

Another way to clean recent damp stains from the walls is by using a magic eraser dipped in water

Rub, rinse, and rub again… So until the stains disappear. Be patient!

A simple method to clean damp stains from the walls is to use bleach

However, it is only recommended on white walls. In addition, it is essential that you ventilate the room well during the cleaning process and at the end, and wear a mask to avoid respiratory problems.

To remove mold stains, you can use tea tree oil

Pour a teaspoon of this oil into half a liter of warm water, and spray the mixture on the mold. Next, let it act for a minimum of 15 minutes and rub the stains. You will hallucinate with the result!

And After Cleaning The Damp Spots, It’s Time To Paint The Walls

After cleaning the moisture from the walls, you can give them a coat of paint to leave them 100% repaired. In these cases, waterproofing paint is always used, as it helps prevent the appearance of damp spots and mold. Depending on your needs, you will have to choose between the 3 types of waterproofing paint that exist:

  • Anti-humidity paint: it is a white paint that can be used even on wet walls.
  • Anti-mold paint: this matt paint prevents mold from appearing and is highly recommended for rooms with poor or poor ventilation, heating, or faulty thermal insulation.
  • Anti-stain paint: with this paint, you can remove all kinds of stains, even if they are not moist.
