Molded drywall


I have mold on the drywall in my bathroom that is being removed, do I need to replace the 2 x 4 also?

I will advice you to treat the 2x4 with some mildew remover. You can put it in a sprayer bottle and apply it that way . I was told that mould is something that grows.

No.

Treat with bleach or mildewicide.

We had mold in the basement and I just used a mix of bleach with a little water and rubbed it into the wood. This worked and the mold did not return.

A little surface mold is one thing.
Is there any damage to the wood is another.
