Andrea Fabry discussed some ways to deal with surface mold issues in an It Takes Time blog article called “Surface Mold? 10 Natural Solutions.”
The article also discusses the importance of examining whether the surface mold may be an indication of a deeper mold problem that will require proper remediation:
Because of the nature of indoor environments, it’s easy for surface mold to develop – especially in the bathroom area, where air circulation is at a minimum. Before addressing the surface issue, it is important to rule out the presence of a deeper problem. Sometimes surface mold is due to hidden water damage. A crack in a tile or a history of a water leak may indicate a larger problem, which can lead to serious health issues. See “Where Do I Begin?” for suggestions on ways to address hidden water damage.
