The Torah describes the procedure for a metzora
(a person afflicted with tzara'as) upon conclusion of his isolation.
This process extends for a week, and involves korbanos and immersions
in the mikveh.  Then, a kohen must pronounce the metzora pure.

A metzora of limited financial means may substitute
lesser offerings for the more expensive animals.
Before a kohen diagnoses that a house has tzara'as,
household possessions are removed to prevent them from
also being declared ritually impure.

The tzara'as is removed by smashing and rebuilding that
section of the house; if it reappears, the entire building must be razed.
The Torah details those bodily secretions that render a person
spiritually impure, thereby preventing his contact with holy items,
and how one regains a state of ritual purity.
