With your foot, press along the floor where it meets the wall and feel for and soft or "spongy areas". Press on the walls, paying particular attention inside cabinets, around windows, doors, and seams. Press on ceiling around all vents, A/C, and where the ceiling meets the wall. Check inside any outside storage for signs of water intrusion. And "follow your nose" - if there is a wet, musty, mildew (wet mop) smell, beware!
Hope this helps.
