Disregard the tangle of wire. That was just to keep the garbage disposal and dishwasher supply line out of the way of my oscillating tool.

My advice is to spray the area with 100% clorox bleach, let dry
then paint the wood with Rust-Oleum 276087 Mold Killing Primer Quart

Does Bleach Really Kill Mold?
Will chlorine bleach kill mold or not—yes or no? The answer is yes, but with a caveat. That answer comes from The Clorox Company, Oakland CA, manufacturer and distributor of Ultra Clorox® Regular Bleach. The company states that their Tech Center studies, supported by independent laboratories, show that “…3/4 cup of Clorox liquid bleach per gallon of water will be effective on hard, non-porous surfaces against… Aspergillus niger and Trichophyton mentagrophytes (Athlete’s Foot Fungus)”. Whether or not chlorine bleach kills other molds and fungi, the company did not say. The “hard, non-porous surfaces” part of the sentence is a caveat. Mold remediation involves the need to disinfect wood and wood-based building materials, all of which are porous materials. Thus, chlorine bleach should not be used in mold remediation as confirmed by OSHA’s and EPA’s updated recommendations and suggested guidelines. The use of bleach as a mold disinfectant is best left to kitchen and bathroom counter-tops, tubs and shower glass, etc.

I do not care what a gubment agency says, It works

It works on porous surfaces, let it soak in,
a light spray on the top does not good, soak it and let it dry

Even if you kill the mold the spores are still in the air, keeping things dry is the best bet.

Went with several applications of the 2 mold cleaners and two coats of mold killing paint. A little of the wet moldy smell is still present but most of it seems to be gone.

Here's my progress so far. Getting the framing for the new cabinet floor assembled. By the way rip cutting a 2x4 with a jigsaw actually isn't that bad if you don't need a totally flat edge.
