    Hi, I'm in a 1960's house and have some mold growing near the main pipe that enters the house.
    Looks kinda black. It's fresh growth, a water guy turned a spigot that leaked after he left and now the mold is on the pipes and spigot.

    Couple questions. What's the circled thing?

    And any tips to fix this situation?

    I'm very new, to cleaning (blackish) mold and plumbing.
