If a house has had mold remediation does that mean there could still be mold in the house

I agree with Nancy. If the mold remediation was done by a professional company than they will have provided a warranty. But it is true that the cause of the mold will have had to be repaired and/or removed to make sure that it does not return.
Best of luck to you!

When mold is remediated by a professional, they usually warranty their work for a year.   However, the remediation of the existing mold is not a final answer.   A professional should determine the cause of the mold in the first place and address that cause so that the mold does not return.  Though all visable mold is gone, it will return over time unless the root cause of the problem is eliminated.

In addition to the possibility that mold might remain, I would be more concerned about the "why". If the reason the mold first appeared is not corrected, then no amount of removing the existing mold is going to do any good.

Hello Worried 10,
Thanks for your question.
If mold remediation was recently performed you will need to get another mold co. come in and test.  It is not in your best interest to have the same co. that did the remediation go back.
Once that company tells you is clean then you can feel at ease. After sending a few samples to a lab and getting the results. No visual since it will be extremely hard to evaluate just by a visual.
Good luck,

What type of mold?  Usually the mold that is visible is treated/removed.  I would suggest a re-inspection by a trained specialist. This can affect your health.

Mold remediation usually has visable mold removed. The only way to find oout is to have the air tested by an experienced specialist.THat will let you know the levels of mold spores in the home. If you are concerned, it is worth the expense!
