Marblehead is one of the oldest fishing villages in the country. Located along the North Shore, the old town has many historic homes and neighborhoods. Historic and coastal homes can be particularly prone to mold due to their potential for poor insulation, aging roofs and siding, flooding and frequent high humidity.
PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for the Marblehead area. Mold thrives on many surfaces such as drywall, wood, tile grout, and even cement when it has organic material, 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 necessary for mold colonization. When homes and businesses have a mold problem it’s usually due to moisture issues like high humidity, basement flooding, roof leaks, plumbing leaks or poor attic ventilation.

MOLD REMOVAL IN MARBLEHEAD BASEMENTS Many older homes in Marblehead have deteriorated porous foundations which could allow water intrusion into the basements. Peeling paint, loose trim, deteriorated exterior doors, windows and bulkheads are sources of moisture as well. Basements, generally, are very damp and humid places – which is wonderful 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. In summer months, many basements can get musty and smelly. This often is a sign of mold. If this happens 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 Marblehead basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN MARBLEHEAD ATTICS Mold in Marblehead attics can actually have many causes. There could be roof leaks, ice dams, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts. However, condensation is probably the most common cause of attic mold. 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 Marblehead.
MOLD REMOVAL IN MARBLEHEAD BATHROOMS As most residents of Marblehead 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.
