Stop the water: The most important step is stopping the water intrusion and remove anything which has been infested with molds. The toxic term has been loosely used since toxicity usually occurs with industrial-size not home exposure. Even if it does, the effect would subside after stopping the exposure. Candida overgrowth is not from mold exposure Antifungal and detox Rx are not indicated.
