Bedford was settled in the early seventeenth century, making it one of the oldest cities in the nation. Although many of the city’s residential and commercial buildings have been updated since then, mold will always be an issue for those working and living in Bedford. Our mold remediation specialists at PowerBees are here to keep Bedford’s homes, businesses and historical sites safe from mold problems all year round.
Bedford is partially bordered by the Concord River and the Shawsheen River runs through the city. Buildings that sit near the banks of either river can be prone to flooding during heavy rainfall. Flooding often causes otherwise avoidable water damage and mold problems. PowerBees will inspect for, prevent and remove mold growth in your Bedford-based home or business.
COMMERCIAL MOLD REMOVAL SERVICES In addition to business, Bedford is also home to a number of historical sites. PowerBees provides commercial mold remediation services for offices, classrooms, commercial buildings and historical buildings in order to improve indoor air quality for employees and students.
MOLD REMOVAL IN ACTON BASEMENTS Basements are usually very damp and humid. Many older homes in Bedford have a deteriorated porous foundation that can allow moisture to penetrate from the outside. Deteriorated exterior doors, windows, and water damaged trim are sources of moisture as well. Unless the moisture is dried out extremely quickly, a warm and wet basement can become the perfect environment for mold to form. Mold spores are dangerous to breathe. A musty odor within your Bedford basement (especially during the summer) is usually a sign of mold. If you detect a musty odor, the property should be tested for mold and may require a mold remediation process in the basement. Call PowerBees today for mold testing or a mold inspection in your Bedford basement.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN ACTON ATTICS Condensation is usually the cause of mold problems in the attics of Bedford. This issue is usually created by a lack of proper attic ventilation. The absence of soffit vents and ridge vents, or vents that are covered with paint or insulation, will trap warm damp air in an attic. When the outside air is cooler than the inside air, condensation will appear on the interior roof sheathing. That condensation provides an ideal environment for mold to colonize in a dark, warm attic. Mold in Bedford attics can also be caused by ice dams, roof leaks, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts. In any case, the mold should be removed by an expert. Call PowerBees today to find out more about attic mold remediation in Bedford.
MOLD REMOVAL IN ACTON BATHROOMS As most residents of Bedford know, bathrooms are a common source of mold. There is always the potential for water to intrude into and negatively affect a bathroom. Leaks or overflows that get into the walls and floors allow for mold to grow and develop. Condensation on ceilings and walls caused by a lack of an exhaust fan can also create an ideal environment for bathroom mold growth. Significant bathroom mold should be removed by an expert in order to avoid cross contamination to other areas within the living space or work space. Microscopic mold spores can spread through the air and are dangerous to breathe. Call PowerBees today to inquire about mold remediation in Bedford bathrooms.
