Found mold in a wall and across carpet; can the plants be treated so they can be moved to a new house?

The plants have been exposed to the mold spores, and I am very allergic to the mold.

It's doubtful that the same mold will grow on the plants, but you can wash off spores that may have settled on the plants from the wall and carpet mold with water.
Or to be sure, you can spray the foliage and soil surface with an organic bio-fungicide, before and after the move.
