Attic mold remedies

20-30% of my attic is covered in mold, mostly near the soffits. The mold pattern isn't consistent. The mold (or mildew) appears to be old, none of it appears fresh or wet. I've since added an exhaust fan to aid air flow.

I CAN'T physically access the mold, thus I can not clean it throughly. Any recommendations on how to neutralize or regress it's growth? Spraying bleach or some sort of mold product?

Mold is on the underside plywood and supporting 2x4's.

Insulation, sheetrock and trusses are all clean.

If 30% is covered I'd look at a better product than bleach. Look for a product that has an EPA cert.
