Since I've been in the boat in alot of humid and rainy weather it has started showing black mold on the interior walls. They don't have a removable liners. It's more like textured plastic coating.

How bad is this for me to live with and how quick do I need I take care of it. It's been raining for three days and its gotten worse. It had tiny spots web I bought the boat and now they are bigger. Do I need to take care of this immediately or can I wait a couple days for a dry sunny day and give things a proper cleaning and drying out.

I was reading about home remedies but what looks best o me is either a pre mixed bathroom cleaner or west marines' star brite mildew stain remover. I have to live in this for the summer so I don't want to use anything to toxic and end up getting sick.

I've got lives and little paper masks to wear so I dont breathe in mold.
