Have been looking at your wood product reviews and wanted to purchase Rainguard.  Oops, discovered you are an American site and I am in the UK!.    Don’t want to purchase via Amazon due to possible Import, etc duties.
Therefore would appreciate some advice.  My shed was erected in 2017 and  painted with Cuprinol wood stain. I realize that I am going to have to re-do it this year, but, have noticed today that the inside has developed mould marks and, in some places, mould growth.  Can you advise, 1) How to remove these? and 2) The best product to use inside to – hopefully – prevent/reduce regrowth?

Hello Elizabeth,
Use Borax to remove mold from wood, Borax is an alkaline mineral salt cleaner.
Use one tablespoon of borax on one cup of water and apply using the brush on affected areas.
Scrub the mold, leave as much solution on wood as possible do not wipe off the solution after scrubbing.
Make sure the wood dries fast, use a dehumidifier for quick dry.

The best way to prevent mold is to keep the area as dry as possible try to find where moisture is coming from and stop it.
