Always wear a respirator when using bleach.

Aside from two horizontal watermarks from a hurricane 3 hrs ago, I see no signs of mold. Besides the two old watermarks, the drywall doesn't get wet. I only spell the mold.
Water in the garage comes from cars after it rains or they leak fluid and there's a bit of water at the bottom of the garage door after it rains.
Water from the front of a car got on a cardboard box and one of the items that I suspected had the original mold spores. So I threw out the cardboard box and replaced it with a plastic tote. I plan to replace all remaining carboard boxes with corrugated plastic boxes.
I'm just unsure what to do about the spores, especially those in the air.

Nipping Garage Mold in Bud
I moved out of an apartment with what appeared to be toxic mold (and became sensitive to it). I made the mistake temporarily storing a few of the items from the apartment in the garage (for 2 days).
It's been about a week. It's rained twice since then. When there's water from rain, the garage makes me sick. When it dries out and I spray some Lysol spray, I feel fine.
What should I do? What product would be best for getting rid of the mold spores quickly and easily? Should I use a dehumidifier or will it just spread the spores? I really want to take care of this quickly.
FYI, there are no visible signs of mold in the garage. This is a 15 yr old house in SE Texas.
