Mold ? and how to get rid of it

Hi,

Just discovered a thin line of black mold above the entrance door of my condo. A bit strange since this is an entrance door outside the bathroom

I wonder if this is a kind of mold forming due to concentrating moisture and the best way to get rid and prevent such thing from occurring ?

Use diluted bleach on a rag to clean up the currently affected area, check the surrounding area for signs of a leak.

If you can't see any other obvious signs, make sure that there is sufficient air flow in the condo and that the fan in the bathroom is actually being used.

Dont think it's mold. It's accumulated dirt from the way the ventilation system is designed. All the air from the common areas is set to blow into all the unit. Air travels though creases between the door and frame and dirt accumulates.
