Lowell is one of the oldest industrial cities in the country and is the 4th largest city in Massachusetts. Located along the Merrimack and Concord Rivers, the former mill town is home to historic neighborhoods such as Pawtucketville, Centralville and the Highlands. Historic and low-lying river valley homes can be particularly prone to mold due to their potential for poor insulation, aging roofs and siding and flooding.
PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for the Lowell area. Mold thrives on many surfaces such as drywall, wood, tile grout, and even cement, so it’s important to remove the problem before it spreads. Mold can cause extensive structural damage to buildings as well as significant health problems for the occupants. Moisture is a key component. When homes and businesses have a mold problem it’s usually due to moisture problems ranging from just high humidity to basement flooding, roof leaks, plumbing leaks or poor attic ventilation.

MOLD REMOVAL IN LOWELL BASEMENTS Many older homes in Lowell 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 Lowell basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN LOWELL ATTICS Mold in Lowell 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 Lowell. 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 Lowell.
MOLD REMOVAL IN LOWELL BATHROOMS As most residents of Lowell know, 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. There’s almost always some mold growth in a bathroom. However any significant 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 Lowell bathrooms.
