There is a very fine biocide called Physan 20, usually found at nurseries. If I remember correctly, it can be used on nonporous surfaces in hospitals & food services w/o a rinse. It is a clear, concentrated, water-based solution with a “reasonably pleasant” odor.
I’ve used it for years inside my home for mold/mildew & related applications using sponge, spray bottle or a Gilmour spray can.
In the future, it may be worthwhile to invest in an MSA safety mask.

> I absolutely agree. About 15 years ago I got sick from mold exposure when I rescued some audio equipment from a space which had water leaks and lots of visible mold growth. I didn't realize that spending time in such a space was a really bad idea. I didn't know how careful I needed to be when cleaning up the equipment, so I contaminated my workspace with lots of mold spores, which then started growing in my space.
