Bathroom linen closet mold

What do you recommend to treat/remove mold that has seeped into a bathroom linen closet? The old, built in the wall closet with shutter like doors has black spots surrounding the inside walls. The inside walls look like some kind of luan or plywood. So, do we need to remove these and replace with another material ? If so, what kind of material could we use that would resist further mold? By the way, we don't have the bathroom vented at this time but plan to in the future. Anxiously awaiting some advice. Thank you.

Well, the cause of the problem MUST be fixed or cleaning it up will do you no good. The bathroom must be vented or you will be cleaning up the visible mold every week. Vent the bathroom. Once you do that there is no reason you can't use sheet rock. There is a green colored sheet rock that is recommended for bathrooms and just about anyone who sells sheet rock will have it. I am no expert on this problem of mold but I do know that bleach will kill mold. I am not sure on the proper way to go about cleaning out all of your mold but venting that bathroom will prevent it from comming back. I just finised my bathroom with regular sheet rock then painted it. Since I vented my bathroom with a good vent fan, I expect no problems.
