Got to figure out some way to pull the humidity out of the air. You can run a dehumidifier if you have power in there, or put a couple of moisture absorber packs in there like Damp Rid (lots of options on amazon).

First thing you will have to do though is clear out all the mildew already in there. Black mold is bad juju.

cup of bleach to 5 gal. water, use a rug dr. to apply.

do this twice letting it dry from the first one for a couple of days.

use the dehumidifier or damp rid as suggested.
