Mushrooms growing in locker door trim

Need some advice please.

Unfortunately over last winter our 2015 Eriba Triton developed a tough fibrous mushroom type growth in the brush trim around the front locker door.

I cleaned it out best I could, which resulted in loosing some of the brush trim and scrubbing out where I could get with bleech on a toothbrush.

The roots seem to have taken old within the door trim channel and after damp weather this summer the mushrooms have appeared in the adjoining brush trim area.

I have again had to cut out more brush trim but the roots will still be in the channel.

I am hoping someone can provide advice on removing the brush trim, or the metal edge trim containing the brush trim so I can clean out the channel properly and replace the brush trim where required also ?

I've ordered a Protec cover for this winter but need to make good/repair the damage done already !

Thanks Pepe,

I had seen that post but was hoping for some info on removing the brush trim if possible with the rest of the door left in place, or how to get the metal trim containing the brush trim off the door.

I've had a look but its not instantly clear how to remove the brush strip or trim from the door.

Has anybody replaced their brush trim on the locker door and recommend how to go about it ? and sourcing of the correct brush trim ?

If you put 'locker door brush' into the search box there's a load more stuff.

With apologies if you've already done this...

Thanks Pepe, appreciate that, I hadn't seen those other posts.

Looks like the brush seal strip just pulls out, I had assumed it needed to be pushed into the groove somehow, a bit like an awning bead.

Thanks for the assistance

Nae bother at all.

Itís actually made my day. Been thwarted by truculent car dealership receptionists, clients who are taking an age to pay and one of the most relentlessly gloomy days I can remember.

Itís like the cloud base is about ten feet off the ground and itís greyer than John Majorís greyest trousers.
