How to clean mold on logic board components?

Tekst:

Bought a used laptop on craigslist, and a month later I find out it has liquid damage.  I feel very stupid. Somehow everything works except one USB port.

I attached some photos that the Apple technicians sent to me.

I'm wondering if I should just count myself lucky and keep running the laptop as is?  Or should I try to clean some of that mold out?  If I decide to clean it, how should I do it?  Compressed air?  Alcohol with a cotton swab?  I don't want to do any further damage to the machine.  But I also don't like the idea of mold growing inside my computer.  Thanks in advance for your input.
