Easton, MA used to be known as shovel town because of the shovels and steel it provided for the building of railroads throughout the country. Now the town is a diverse suburb made up of neighborhoods with historic or modern homes as well as academic and industrial centers of living and business. Unfortunately, many of these Easton homes are likely to have mold issues due to their potential for having poor insulation, aging roofs and siding and being 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 the result of a moisture issue. These can range from just high humidity to basement flooding, roof leaks, plumbing leaks or poor attic ventilation. Mold spores are everywhere and when the conditions are right they colonize on many surfaces such as drywall, wood, even tile grout and cement (with organic material). Mold can cause extensive structural damage to buildings as well as significant health problems for the occupants. A building could have a problem with mold in the attic that infiltrates the air duct system and spreads mold spores throughout, so it’s important to remove the problem quickly. PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for the Easton, MA area.

MOLD REMOVAL IN EASTON BASEMENTS Many older homes in Easton have deteriorated porous foundations and are located near wetlands which can lead to flooding in the basements. Peeling paint, loose trim, deteriorated exterior doors, windows and bulkheads are sources of moisture as well. Unless the moisture is dried out immediately, a warm and wet basement is the perfect environment for mold to grow. Even without flooding, basements can be very damp places, which is great for mold. Mold spores can be harmful to breathe. Over summer months, many basements can get musty. This is often a sign of mold. If you suspect mold in the basement, the property should be tested for mold to see if it requires a mold remediation. Call PowerBees today for mold testing or a mold inspection in your Easton basement.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN EASTON ATTICS Mold in Easton attics can be caused by many things: roof leaks, ice dams, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts. Condensation is one of the most common causes of mold problems in attics in Easton. 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. Call PowerBees today for a free estimate of attic mold remediation in Easton.
MOLD REMOVAL IN EASTON BATHROOMS Easton knows bathrooms are a common source of mold. 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.
