old mold

If the source of water that caused mold has been removed, repaired, eradicated, and the mold has not grown or been further contributed to in years, can it still grow without any more moisture being available to it?

Mold, like you and me, needs water to live. Not that I'm saying you're moldy. Mold spores (seeds) can survive for years, decades, longer. If moisture returns, mold may return.
Measure twice, cut once.
Look at the nail, not the hammer. Watch the fence, not the blade.
If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.

No, it hasn't, but the pipes that broke have been repaired.
