What do you do with clothes if you have black mold in your house? The first thing is to find out which mold it is and whether the mold is growing on the clothes. There are many molds that can appear black and not all of them are toxigenic. The next thing is to assess the level of mold contamination on the clothes. If the mold was growing on the clothes for sometime, such clothes would probably have to be disposed off since they would be damaged in the first place. However, if no mold has been growing on the clothes, it is not advisable to dispose such clothes. If one is concerned about settled mold spores, the clothes can be washed thoroughly before they are worn again. Some people argue that cleaning the clothes would not remove mycotoxins and those toxins would still bee harmful to the person wearing those clothes. The level of mycotoxins (if any) would be insignificant.
