Mold is generally easy to spot if you know what to look for.

Mold Odor– not all types of mold have an odor but most do. If there is a musty smell mold may be present

Visible Check – some types of mold will show in clusters of small black spots on wall, ceiling, floors or baseboard. It can also be greenish brown or greenish gray. Mold is mostly found in area of concentrated moisture or high humidity which generally signals some type of water leak.
Most common types of water damage come from the following:

Leaking Hot water tanks, sink drains and supply lines, corroded pluming, HVAC condensation drain lines and pans, as well as outside forces such as flooding and wind driven rain.
Drying drywall can take anywhere from 48 to 72 hours. If the affected area sustained a large amount of water it is recommended to remove. With a little bit of water, drywall can become an ideal environment for mold. Even after drying it out, if mold has taken root, it will persist.
It depends on the amount of water the flooring sustained and the speed at which it was dried/extracted. If the flooring was highly saturated it is generally recommended to remove and replace and thoroughly dry and clean the subfloor prior to reinstalling.
