Household Items

Remove Mold, If Possible
Mold can be removed from hard surfaces such as hard plastic, glass, metal and countertops. Completely removing moisture and mold from porous surfaces such as paper, drywall and carpet padding is impossible, so these materials must be removed and discarded.
Discard Soft and Porous Materials
Porous plastic and wooden items are contaminated by dirty water because the water soaks in and the cannot be sanitized.
Disinfect Cookware
Take apart kitchen items that can be cleaned in pieces. For any cookware that can go in the dishwasher, run it through a hot-water cycle with detergent.
