Sorry I might be in the wrong section..
Anyway, in our living room one wall and across the roof is constantly mouldy it looks like it's beginning to damage the paint. I have two questions.
Firstly, what can I do about it? I try to air the house with the door open but it's winter and I can only do this at night after I get home. I run a dehumidifier in the living room every second night (every other it goes in the bathroom). I try to spray and remove it with mould remover but it just keeps coming back in this spot. Any suggestions?
Secondly, I'm in a rental, I'm going to have to contact my agent about it. Will I get changed to fix it? I really can't afford that and I'm trying my best to fix it?
Just beside the mould is a huge water stain/bubble in the paint from water, it was here before we moved in. i don't know what its from but it doesn't appear to be wet anymore. could this be related ?

You need to kill the spores, not just remove the mould. Oil of cloves is meant to do this. Not even bleach kills mould spores.

Contact your property manager asap. Sounds like there is a leak in the roof and it needs to be looked at.

Oil of cloves in water and spray it, it kills and retards the growth for 3 months.
We have mould in our place too, it's horrid. My dehumidifier runs every day but it seems to be doing the job.
Good luck, but u should look into why you have the damp issue.

If there is a leak which sounds like there is or has been, the owner should have insurance which will repair the damage.
