I have a spot where black mold is growing. it got wet once and started to grow mold. i can clean it up but it comes back. I've used a spray that says
" Helps prevent mold and mildew" but it hasn't work. I'm looking for suggestions that will stop it.

I doubt if reoccurring mold is just growing on it's own. A leak or rot behind the spot is the probable cause, you're just seeing the result. I think you're going to have to cut into the wall or ceiling to find out what's causing the issue. To continue to just clean the surface won't cure the problem, it's going to take more aggressive probing. A mold issue can cause serious sickness, as I'm sure you know.
