is the mold worst where boards were making direct constant contact with the sheet on top? I’m betting a lot of the mold is cause the first 2 weeks it wasn’t getting air circulation. Oak starts crazy wet in my experience and is slow to give it up. My garage was swampy even with a fan for the better part of 3 wks the last time I put freshly sawn WO in it. While you don’t want to rush it cause you’ll get surface checking, once you clean these up air circulation by itself this time or year should be fool proof (read: no heat or dehumidifier). Then just check them more regularly. I use an $8 timer and run the fan on high during the day and let them rest for 8hrs at night – prob overcomplicating it there though lol.
