To prevent more mould growth, water stained areas on walls need to be disinfected with these solutions, then covered with a coating of primer, followed by coats of matching paint. However the cavities within the walls are more important. Even if only a small area is damaged, all stained or moulded insulation should be replaced, and although small spots of mould growth and water damage may be cut out and locally replaced, it is strongly recommended that you replace the entire sheet. Dark, damp areas that are particularly susceptible to black mould growth are wall cavities. In dark and humid conditions, black mould will thrive quickly, within 24-48 hours.
