How can we Remove Mold ?

White vinegar may not do as good of a job as the cola would, but with the rough end of a sponge or a scrub-brush, it should clear away the mold quite nicely.

Another great method to try when combating mold is to mix half a cup of hydrogen peroxide (3%) with two cups of water in a spray bottle. Simply spray on the areas that have mold. Wait longer than one hour before rinsing the mixture or using the shower.

Be careful with mold, when you scrub it it the spores and sent out and it can spread. Bleach is a commonly used agent to clean mold but make sure your doing more harm than good.

Mycocides are a hobby of mine.
Really, I'm that boring.
Acid is good (vinagar, cola or worse). H2O2 is good but does not stick around.
Chlorine works but has problems.
Iodine disinfectants are also good but have the same problems (staining, odor). Iodine does last longer than the others mentioned.
The most effective by volume are the medical mycocides. You can get them over the counter in the form of athletes foot or jock itch treatments. Usually in an aerosol can. Shop hard and it will be cheaper than you think. Clean the area throughly and then spray on just as the can recomends you do to your swampy bits. It also does not stain/discolor like cholrine and iodine and last a long time. I use this in gardening to overwinter flower bulbs outside the ground. Otherwise they tend to grow fungi.
There are mycocides in the hardware store you mix with primer or paint to prevent mold but I can't vouch for thier being safe and friendly for normal cleaning.

Normally, mold grows on organic materials such as paper, dirt, wood and soap scum. If you want to remove mold on hard surfaces like hard plastic, glass, metal and counter tops then scrub with a non-ammonia soap or detergent but it is impossible to completely eliminate mold on porous surfaces.

We could remove it forever only by fixing our ventilation

That's right. There's no other way to get rid of the mold.

Mold...what a topic. In bathrooms and other such areas use something like Tilex. Then clean the surface with a good product for cleaning ceramic (your janitorial supplier will have these) and finally spray with a hospital grade disinfectant that has a claim to help control mold. Will this be the last time you have to clean up mold? No. But it will increase the times between cleanings.

Many option are there with which you can remove the mold on your skin. But necessary care must be taken otherwise it can be spread across your whole skin. Bleach is best option to avoid it on skin.

The mold from the carpets never gets out. On other surfaces try bleach, mold remover but some surfaces like seals won't come out totally.
