Wet and Forget now sell indoor anti mold treatment . I'll be spraying that around , inside the house this year. 
Wet and Forget(outdoor version)  worked for me on the outside walls of the house, but not on the driveway(too much water running down it in winter?).
So may not work inside the shower as the water would just wash it away, or you could just keep applying it?
Janola is fantastic for killing mold, but its also VERY harsh on paint/stainless steel etc.

Dulux Anti-mold paint works wonders on the ceiling & walls. 3 years and more mold on areas where Ive painted using it.

timmmay: Those combined light extractor things are hopeless, my extractor probably moves ten times more air on high.


Yes big difference. I installed a non-light one last April for a friend who had problems with mould every few weeks starting to show up. It hasn't been back since and the walls haven't needed cleaned since.

I went with a 150mm and twin blade motor hung on bungy cords in the roof. It gets plenty of air flow. You can feel the draft around the bathroom door not just under it.

Moist air pumped into the roof space will condense in cold/cooler regions and may cause timber rot and ceiling damage.
The moist air should be pumped outside.
