I am looking for a product or home remedy for removing black mold caused from moisture from a window sash before I refinish it again. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi kamosman,

IF the 'black' is mold, then it will come off with a mix of 1 cup Bleach w/1 gallon Water. You can go stronger if you'd like. Then, rinse/wipe a good bit with water.

If this doesn't work, then the black ISN'T mold - It's dirt. From there, who knows what it is.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

My husband was down in the basement the other day and found something that looks like mold. It was high up on the ceiling so he couldn't get a good look at it. We're having someone come look at it tomorrow to see what it is exactly. We might have to end up doing mold remediation if it's bad.
