Hi giraffe76,

 

If you mean black spots on paper, as opposed to a vinyl wall covering, then I'm afraid that the mould will have penetrated the paper. The only way is to remove the cause of the mould, it could be due to condensation, or another damp problem. Then stripping the paper, treating with a fungicide, and redecorating.

 

So, have you any indication of the cause ?

I think i know what the cause is but i will be getting a 2nd opinion to clarify my theory.

 

You have confirmed what i thought about having to redecorate with the wallpaper though.
