So you have proper containment setup and you are controlling the humidity with a dehumidifier. Now you need to decide what type of mold disinfectant to use and how to apply it. If you are removing mold from inside your living space make sure all Sheetrock that has visible signs of mold or water damage are removed but before you do that, fog it with a really good disinfectant to help reduce mold spores from spreading.

We have used the Anabec Mold Cleaner for many years during our crawl space encapsulation process. It is peroxide based and not EPA registered which in a nutshell means it is a more green product. Not that you shouldn't wear proper PPE when applying because peroxide can be dangerous.
