Another sign of a moisture problem is surface abnormalities like peeling, bubbling or cracking of the paint or wallpaper. If your walls are bowed, bulging or warped it probably means moisture has gotten into them.
The above signs of water problems are usually created by leaks. Mold growth from leaks can often be hidden. If the leak was behind a wall or other surface then the mold will probably be hidden behind the surface too.
If your house has been flooded in the past then it's likely that mold would've started to grow. Any mold would probably be growing in places where the flood water remained the longest such as in the basement. Floods can often create mold growing out of view behind walls or under floors.
