How can I be sure my house has been cleared of mold?

I had recent flooding in my house and mold set in, I want to make sure that all mold is gone prior to moving back in.

You should really call an inspector in before moving back into your home. Mold can cause things like cancer and other lung problems. The inspector can clear your home and will tell you if you got all the mold. You just don't want to move back in and find out later that you missed some.

You need to look around all areas that can get wet for discoloration. Smell around for musty odors, if you have respitory problems without a cause you may still have mold. Keep a check on the humidity in your home. Look for any discoloration or cracked paint on your walls.
