If this doesn't clean it, it is NOT mold. Years ago I was a Tech Rep for USG (drywall) For molding drywall we would recommend about 20% to 80% chlorine-water and spray, now complete removal is recommended. Now that all the lawyers have used up all of the Asbestos lawsuits, they have changed to "Mold"
