How can he get rid of mold in his attic?

This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

Q. I bought my house in 2008 (built in 1977) and was told by house inspector there was some mold in the attic due to no bathroom vent in 2nd floor bath. Had a vent put in immediately. I recently went into attic (crawl space only) and found most of the insulation moldy on top and the bathroom area very moldy but very hard to reach (near soffit/eave area). So, my plan to scrub and clean seemed impossible. The cleaner I bought (Damprid) (I was told not to use bleach by a Realtor, as it would make mold grow?) is an apply, wait 5 mins, and wipe type of cleaner. Since I am not much of a handyman I’m hoping you can help me. Where do I start? New insulation? Is there a spray-only solution to mold?
