Mold is DANGEROUS for humans and pets, so if your plant develops mold, you need to DISPOSE of it ASAP!!! Saving a plant from (certain) death is less important than your health!!!
Tldr: MOLD IS BAD!! Throw it away!!
One small nitpick... Not all mold that grows on plants is dangerous to animals or humans. Most of the time it doesn't get aerosolized in large enough amounts to cause a reaction, anyway.
Some mold isn't that bad and for people without compromised immune systems, it causes little harm.

Are you talking about Stachybotrys chartarum? It's scary, but not very common.
