Charlestown, MA is one of the oldest parts of Boston, Massachusetts. What is now a city neighborhood was once part of a much larger territory that extended all the way out to what is now the Route 128 beltway. Charlestown now has historic homes as well as industrial and urban centers of living and business. Historic and coastal homes are particularly prone to mold due to their age and poor insulation, aging roofs and porous foundations. New England coastal homes are also at risk of flooding and high humidity.
Moisture is a key component to mold growth. When homes and businesses have a mold problem it’s usually due to moisture issues which might be as simple as high humidity or as complicated as basement flooding, roof leaks, plumbing leaks or poor attic ventilation. Mold can cause extensive structural damage to buildings as well as significant health problems for the occupants. Mold spores are everywhere and given the right conditions they will colonize on many surfaces such as drywall, wood, even tile grout and cement (with organic material). A building could have a problem with mold in the attic that infiltrates the air duct system and spreads mold spores all through the building, so it’s important to remove the problem quickly. PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for Charlestown, MA.

MOLD REMOVAL IN CHARLESTOWN BASEMENTS Many older homes in Charlestown have deteriorated porous foundations which allow moisture penetration into the basements. Peeling paint, loose trim, deteriorated exterior doors, windows and bulkheads are sources of moisture as well. Any dark, humid and damp place is good for mold. So basements are often ideal environments for mold to growth. Unless the moisture is dried out immediately, a warm and wet basement is the perfect environment for mold to grow. Mold spores can be harmful to breathe. Over summer months, many basements can get musty and smelly. This often is a sign of mold. The property should be tested for mold to see if it requires a mold remediation in the basement. Call PowerBees today for mold testing or a mold inspection in your Charlestown basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN CHARLESTOWN ATTICS Condensation is one of the most common causes of mold problems in attics in Charlestown. Usually it’s the result of a lack of proper attic ventilation. The absence of ridge vents, soffit vents or vents covered with insulation or paint will trap warm damp air in an attic. When the outside air is cool, condensation will form on the inside of the roof sheathing. That condensation provides the perfect opportunity for mold to colonize in a dark, warm attic. In any case, the mold should be removed professionally. Mold in Charlestown attics can also be caused by roof leaks, ice dams, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts.

MOLD REMOVAL IN CHARLESTOWN BATHROOMS Most Charlestown residents know bathrooms are a common source of mold, because there is always the potential for moisture in bathrooms. Pipe leaks or overflows that get into the walls and floors allow for mold to develop. Condensation on walls and ceilings caused by lack of an exhaust fan can also create the right environment for bathroom mold growth. Microscopic mold spores can then spread through the air and may be harmful to the occupants. Substantial bathroom mold should be removed professionally to avoid cross contamination to other areas within the living or work space. Call PowerBees today to inquire about mold remediation in Charlestown bathrooms.
