What is involved in removing mold from basement walls that are concrete?

Due to heavy rains I have mold growing on my basement walls.

You need to scrub them with a bleach and water solution. A broom or sponge mop dipped into the bleach solution, and then brushed on the walls, works really well. You will want to have the windows open while doing this, and wear a mask over your mouth and nose.

The best method is to use a solution of bleach and water. 2 parts bleach to one part water. Straight bleach will also be effective at killing the mold. Spray the bleach solution on the walls and let the bleach work for 5 to 10 minutes then scrub and rinse.
