Question Mold on bathroom ceiling


I just bought my first house. There appears to be a little bit of mold on the ceiling above the shower. What can/should I do to get rid of it? I don't know what kind of mold it is. It's dark brown/blackish in color.

Welcome to the forums!

It's probably just mildew, a little bleach/water should clean it off.

What's above the shower? If it's another bathroom, you may have a leak coming from there, which means the spot will reappear.
