Hi all I purchased a single wide home and it previously had leaks in the roof I fixed that but it had black mold (scary) and I replaced all the drywall and flooring and braces inside the wall I found more mold in the living room I again replaced about 8 sheets of dry wall and flooring and braces in walls I’m so nervous about mold being else where.
How can I be certain I got the mold out?

I believe there are test kits for mold. Mold & moisture run hand in hand, Check the humidity levels in your home. Try running a dehumidifier if it is too high. you can spray it with mold killer also.
You may want to wear a mask when you are near it just as a precaution.
