For sure you should add antibiotic to the medium for preventing the growth of mold. I had a friend who had the same problem but added antibiotic.

for killing molds use some antifungal agents.
which media u are using to isolate clostridia.

just do fumigation o the lab,probably saprobes are contaminating your culture.
