Mold behind baseboard


Hi, I'm in the process of putting down backerboard in the kitchen.
I took the baseboard off near the door. This is an exterior wall with a Florida room adjoining it that I converted to a chicken coop.
Anyways I saw some mold behind the baseboard. It's about a 1 foot section. Don't know if I should rip the drywall out or just bleach it?
I've attached a picture.
Thanks

Well it won't let me add a picture even though it says picture attached.
It looks like it's just surface mold, like someone light spray painted mold on it

Re: Mold behind baseboard


If the drywall is solid, I'd just clean it but if it's spongy it should be removed.
Is the other side of that wall reasonably dry?

Re: Mold behind baseboard


Why would you make a part of your house into a chicken coop.?

Because when I bought the house it was a foreclosure. The sunroom has a badly cracked foundation and virtually all the glass, which was on all sides except the side that adjoins the house was broken. The glass was 6 sliding door walls. It's really not worth it to me to fix it. I could replace it all in the future if need be.
