Getting Rid of Black Mold Around Shower

We are getting ready to move into a house, but there is a lot of work that has to be done first. We recently tore the entire bathroom out from the floors to the ceiling. It will be a whole new make-over. The bathtub is fine, it just needs to be cleaned really well. It is filthy, but the dirt wipes off. Now on the outside of the tub surround there is mold. What can I do to safely remove and prevent if from coming back?

Use a 50/50 bleach/water solution in a bucket. Use hot but not scalding water. Take a stiff bristled handheld bathtub brush and alternate between dipping the brush in the bucket and scrubbing at the mold until it is all gone. The bleach should remove the stain left by the mold. If not you can try some concentrated bleach on a white rag, wearing gloves. Be careful not to damage the caulk. If the caulk is leaking in any way, remove, clean and re-caulk. Rinse clean with water and you should be good to go.
