Good to know, thanks! Unfortunately if one cannot eliminate the origin they will never be able to get rid of the mold spread.

Thanks for that. Here in New Zealand we have lots of old, leaky homes that are prone to moulds. I used to live in one myself. Same as you mention, we saw spotting on the wall near the floor... seemed there had been a leak at some point before we moved in and the landlord hadn't addressed it.
Leaky homes can be a real issue down here, as we've got a really wet winter in most parts of the island.

Five Signs You May Have Mold in Your Home
The easy answer to whether or not you have mold in your home is, yes. There are thousands of different types of mold in the world, and all homes naturally have some mold and spores in the dust and air.

Here are some signs that you may have a high level of mold and/or a type of mold (like Black mold) that could be detrimental to your health and home.
If you are suspicious that you may have a mold problem in your home, it is important to have it tested.it is a good idea to have a professional come in to do your testing. Some licensed home inspectors are also licensed mold assessors, able to test for mold with state-of-the-art equipment.
Knowing how to recognize a mold infestation early on can help you keep your family healthy and save money on costly remediation.
