Question on Removing Mold From A Painting

I received an email earlier today from Dr. Rooma of Singapore. I don’t have experience removing mold from a painting, but if you have found a way, let me know and we’ll publish it.

Hi Darrell,

I had a query and I hope you will be able to help me out with it.

I stay in Singapore. It being an island, the climate is always full of moisture and very humid. Off late I have noticed moulds grow on my paintings!! Can you suggest ways of preventing that? What should I do about the paintings which already have white stuff growing on them?

I don’t varnish my paintings…… will varnishing help in this case?

Hope to recieve your reply soon. 🙂

Thanks and have a nice day!

Regards,
Rooma.
