how remove moldy air conditioner?

Asked May 8, 2015, 11:50 AM EDT

It looks like a window air conditioner that was sealed from the inside over the winter may have become a mold incubator. It is full of black stuff. A second unit has a small amount in a rear corner. I'm guessing that I should replace both units. Do a need a mold remediation expert to remove the worse one or can Sistine else do it, carefully?
