Reading is one of the oldest cities in the US. Settled in the middle of the seventeenth century, many of Reading’s residential and commercial buildings have been updated since. Whether a building is new, historic or updated, mold will always be an issue for those living and working in Reading. Our mold remediation specialists at PowerBees are here to keep Reading’s homes and businesses safe from mold problems all year round. Reading is home to many residences, businesses and schools. Regardless of whether a building is residential or commercial, flooding can be an issue. This is especially true for buildings near the Ipswich River. Flooding often causes water damage, and mold problems can follow shortly thereafter. PowerBees is happy to inspect for, remove and prevent future mold growth in your Reading-based home or business.

MOLD REMOVAL IN READING BASEMENTS Many older homes in Reading 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. Often in summer months, many basements are musty and smelly. That's usually 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 Reading basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN READING ATTICS Mold in Reading 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 Reading. 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 Reading.
MOLD REMOVAL IN READING BATHROOMS As most residents of Reading 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. 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 Reading bathrooms.
