When it comes to remediating mold it's always best to hire a professional mold removal and remediation service.
Mold Remediation Overview
The main steps in mold remediation and abatement are:

Protective Equipment for Mold Remediation
The mold remediation process is one of the times when mold spores are most likely to be disturbed into the air.
This is why you should wear protective clothing and equipment while performing mold remediation.
Protective equipment for mold remediation includes:
Dust filter mask or respirator
Protective clothing that covers your whole body and can be easily cleaned or disposed of
You may also wish to use negative pressure in the room you are cleaning. To do this run an exhaust fan blowing out of a window, or partially opened door if you have to, to blow air outside of the house. This way mold spores that are stirred up during the removal process should mostly end up outside. Also make sure you turn off any air conditioning systems in the house before you begin cleaning up the mold.
