Have it done by certified professionals, your house possessions may already have the mold. Each piece may need to be inspected.

With that much mold I would have a mold remediation company come in and guide you on what needs done. Let them remove the mold. It will be pricey but it’s worth it to not have it adversely affect your health.

@bbgorman IMHO it’s quite difficult and can be very dangerous due to the toxicity. You need professionals if even they can. Health risks may not be worth it depending on where/how much you have. There can be brain damage, and I believe breathing problems neither of which might go away. It can be quite invasive. (your posessions).

Cover everything and hire a contractor to hang all new sheet rock. It’s the only sure way to get rid of all. You will find more behind the sheet rock that will have to be killed. It’s a pain but you have to get rid of it and then maintain a safe humidity level in the house.
