Mold Resistant Paint

    I have a inside shower and the walls are unpainted stone. I find the
    shower walls are getting moldy. I have been told to clean the stone
    with bleach and than seal with silicone.

    Where can I get spreadable silicone sealant to brush over the walls?

    Please suggest particular products: it would be helpful if I could
    purchase them at Home Depot or Lowes.

    Your help would be appreciated.

    geosel is a product, But i advise against it. When it molds behind it or
    when it discolors you can only remove it by sandblasting. In a few
    years it could look like an ugly mess. I have a stone wall this was done
    to, its black with mold and will be sandblasted off. Use bleach often
    stone looks good natural

  3. Mould is really hard to get rid of. Clorox tends to remove the paint and
    isn't a permanent solution. I installed a ceiling fan and let it run for a
    few minutes to exhaust the steam which would otherwise condense on the
    walls, etc. So far, so good with that.

    If it is stone, do NOT talk to your local Home Depot or Lowes.
    Instead, head to your local professional stone/tile shop. You also
    might want to stop into John Bridge's online stone/tile forum and
    re-ask your question. A bunch of knowledgeable people hang out there
    and they are honestly helpful.

    If this is an ongoing problem, better ventilation will likely be part
    of the solution.
