The answer to this question depends on the surfaces the mold has growing on and how severe the mold has gotten.
Mold in or on windows:
If using a mold product, read the label, apply it for the right dwelling time (how long it needs to stay on the surface before cleaning), Clean the mold, wipe it down, bag the cloth /paper in a bag and seal it of (tie it up), then throw it away, it is also good to hepa vacuum and clean all surfaces. Also make sure you have lots of fresh air coming into the area you are cleaning.
If the mold is on your dry wall, you are better of calling us; "do it yourself" in cases like this usually creates a much bigger problem than you originally had, such as cross contamination or exposing you and your family to potential health risks.
It's better to know how to prevent mold on windows:
Wipe down the condensation that is on and around your windows; further more prevent condensation in the first place: If you see condensation on your windows it is a good indication that your heat is too high compared to the temperature outside in the winter or your air conditioning is too high compared to the temperature outside in the summer. Thus causing your humidity levels to be too high in your house, when the heat in your house meets the cold window this causes condensation and vice versa in the summer. It may also be an indication that your windows were improperly installed or improperly insulated or caulked, allowing water to penetrate and build up between your windows and allowing cold spots where it is not insulated. This also may affect the drywall below your window.
