In a corner behind installed cabinetry the wall board showed signs of mold. The previous owner had finished the basement himself and built a framed and insulated wall with a 6" airspace behind the wall to leave room for plumbing. Being a partly below-ground wall made of porous concrete, there was condensation on the inside surface and moisture migrating in from outside. With no air movement and plenty of dust for food, mold had an ideal environment to grow. Mold produces mycotoxins that greatly compromise the air quality and personal health. Not only that, but mold emits even greater amounts of mycotoxins in the presence of EMF's. Wifi was twenty feet away, electric wiring emitting electrical fields within inches, and dirty electricity (MEP) was broadcasting off of those wires as well. This was ultimately one of the worst imaginable scenarios possible. The mycotoxin level was over 13x the amount that closes public buildings!
The homeowner did the initial demo themselves to save money. This is NOT advisable, but at least they were using respirators. Mold should not be encapsulated or simply covered. It shouldn't be dry scrubbed or vacuumed. It is best not only to kill it, but also to completely remove it and change the conditions in which it lives. Deny it moisture, food, or proper temperatures. Since we like our homes to be comfortable, having it below freezing, and above boiling is not an option. Since we require humidity, enjoy showers, cooking, breathing, and exercise, moisture can only be reduced. Best approach here--airflow.
The homeowner contacted a mold remediation company that killed the mold and it was then cleaned, deeply. Secondly, they followed with a blocking primer, and the walls were left open for airflow. A decorative paint was applied for an old-world look:
