How do I get mold stains out of my floor

I have new solid hardwood floors.About 4 yrs old. I had a rug over it that must have gotten wet and now there are small stains smaller than a dime in the floor. Tried tilex did not work
What else can I try. Thanks for the help.

Moisture has likely penetrated finish. Trapped beneath finish where it remained wet, mold and mildew set it. Attempts to clean beneath finish where moisture was trapped will prove futile. The upside is that the rug hides the stains. With luck, stains can be sanded out when it comes time to refinish floor.
