We use Clorox concentrated bleach.  The correct dilution to kill mold spores is 1/2 cup per gallon of water.  This information came from the Clorox company.

Hi, p.ramadoss;

 

You may want to consider chlorine dioxide canisters for blowers/hvac.  Treat the surfaces and the source equally.  Spore from mold can be very invasive and difficult to kill from the most inconspicuous places of forming colonies (behind walls from leaking pipes, trapped moisture in cabinets, condensate on wall/ceiling tiles, overhead trim, etc.) and re-infest surfaces.
