Scituate, Massachusetts was originally settled in the early 1600s. The South Shore former fishing village has many old, historical buildings. The historic neighborhoods are now mostly suburban residential neighborhoods. Because of its location on the ocean, Scituate has several geographical characteristics which can put its buildings and homes at risk of water damage and mold. Homes and buildings near the bay have the potential for ocean flooding. There are also several rivers and wetlands in Scituate which means the high water table could cause water intrusion in basements. Also many houses built on or near the coastline can have ongoing issues with high humidity. Additionally, older homes in Scituate can have poor insulation, aged roofing and siding and poor attic ventilation which can all lead to moisture and mold problems.
Moisture is a key component to mold growth. When homes and businesses suffer from moisture issues - which can range from basement flooding, roof leaks and plumbing leaks to poor attic ventilation and even high humidity - mold growth can occur. Mold thrives on many surfaces, such as drywall, wood framing and furniture and even tile grout and cement. Black mold spores or any color mold can grow in just about any area of a home or building. You could have attic mold, basement mold, bathroom mold, any place that has a moisture problem. Mold can cause structural damage and property damage as well as significant health issues for the occupants, so it’s important to remove the problem before it spreads. PowerBees provides fast, expert mold removal services for Scituate homes and businesses.

MOLD REMOVAL IN SCITUATE BATHROOMS As most residents of Scituate 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 Scituate bathrooms.
MOLD REMOVAL IN SCITUATE BASEMENTS Many older homes in Scituate have deteriorated, porous foundations which allow moisture intrusion into the basements. Leaks from plumbing, peeling paint, deteriorated exterior doors, windows, trim and bulkheads are other sources of moisture. All of these will cause a basement to be damp and humid – which is ideal for mold. In summer months, many basements can get musty. This often is a sign of mold and the property should probably be tested for mold to see if it requires a mold remediation in the basement. Unless the moisture is dried out swiftly, a warm and wet basement will begin to grow mold. Mold spores can be harmful to breathe. Call PowerBees today for mold testing or a mold inspection in your Scituate basement if you suspect mold.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN SCITUATE ATTICS Condensation is one of the most common causes of mold problems in attics in Scituate. Usually it’s the result of a lack of proper attic ventilation. However, mold in Scituate attics can also be caused by roof leaks, ice dams, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts. 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 Scituate.
