Try Shower Power or one of the similar mild acid cleaners. Our en suite wall are a white smooth surface. A couple of years ago, gum leaves had collected in the partially open roof vent while parked at the house, then we got a storm which blew rain in from an unexpected direction, staining the walls with the tannin from the leaves. Shower power got them sparkling white again. There was no mould, but it works on mould in the shower in the house.

I used to get bad mould on a wet, cold interior house wall. I tried everything available but it kept returning. The only thing that got rid of it was ordinary household bleach.

Having lived in Darwin for 8 years One learns how to control mould successfully. Vinegar usually fixes it.
Pour some white distilled vinegar straight into a spray bottle, spray on the mouldy area, and let set without rinsing if you can put up with the smell. It will dissipate in a few hours.

Get the book Spotless from Shannon Lush. I think there is something in there about salt water killing mould. Bleach etc apparently doesn't kill mould, it just "bleaches" it.

There is a product that I have found to be the bees knees for mould and moss and does NOT contain bleach. So you can use it on a very wide variety of surfaces without fear of rotting stiching etc that can happen if the bleach is too strong.

Not cheap but goes a long long way and really works. $99.00 for 5 Litres of concentrate Mix as 5 parts water to 1 part product (I think).

Called Wet and Forget.

I have no connection to this company. I'm just a happy user.
