Fall River, one of the oldest textile industrial cities in the country is located along the coast of Mt. Hope Bay in Southeastern Massachusetts. The city is made up of neighborhoods with 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 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 due to moisture issues that can range from just high humidity to 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 when the conditions are right they 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 throughout, so it’s important to remove the problem quickly. PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for the Fall River, MA area.

MOLD REMOVAL IN FALL RIVER, MA BASEMENTS Many older homes in Fall River 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. Basements can be very humid and damp places – which is great for mold. 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 Fall River basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN FALL RIVER, MA ATTICS Mold in Fall River attics can be caused by 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 Fall River. 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 Fall River.
MOLD REMOVAL IN FALL RIVER, MA BATHROOMS As most residents of Chestnut Hill know, bathrooms are a common source of mold. There is always the potential for some form of water damage in bathrooms. 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 a great environment for bathroom mold growth. Significant bathroom mold should be removed professionally to avoid cross contamination to other areas within the living or work space. Microscopic mold spores can spread through the air and may be harmful. Call PowerBees today to inquire about mold remediation in Chestnut Hill bathrooms.
