Westwood is one of the oldest towns in the United States. Founded at the middle of the seventeenth century (but not officially incorporated as a separate town until the nineteenth century), many of Westwood’s commercial and residential buildings have been updated since. Whether a building is updated, an original or new, mold will always be an issue for those working and living in Westwood. Our mold remediation specialists at PowerBees are here to keep Westwood’s homes and businesses safe from mold problems all year round. In any building, the presence of mold can reduce indoor air quality and, therefore, reduce your quality of life. Flooding causes water damage that will then cause future mold problems. PowerBees is happy to inspect for, remove and prevent future mold growth in Westwood.

MOLD REMOVAL IN WESTWOOD BASEMENTS Basements can become very damp and humid. Many older homes in Westwood have a deteriorated porous foundation that can allow moisture to penetrate from the outside. Windows, deteriorated exterior doors, bulkheads and water damaged trim are all sources of moisture. When the moisture is not dried out as soon as possible, a warm and wet basement becomes the perfect environment for mold to grow. Mold spores are often dangerous to breathe, especially if you have a mold allergy or another respiratory issue. A musty odor within your Westwood basement (especially during the summer) is usually a sign of mold. If you detect a musty odor, the property should be tested for mold and may require a mold remediation process in the basement. Call PowerBees today for mold testing or a mold inspection in your Westwood basement.
MOLD REMEDIATION IN WESTWOOD ATTICS Condensation is often the cause of mold problems in the attics of Westwood. This issue is often caused by improper attic ventilation. The absence of ridge vents and soffit vents, or vents that are blocked with insulation or paint, will keep warm damp air in an attic for an extended period of time. When the outside air is cooler than the inside air, condensation will gather on the interior roof sheathing of your attic. That warm, dark attic that the condensation creates provides a perfect environment in which mold can colonize. Mold in Westwood attics can also be caused by ice dams, roof leaks, leaks from HVAC systems, improperly vented dryer vent exhausts or bathroom exhausts. Whatever the cause, the mold needs to be removed by a trained professional. Call PowerBees today to find out more about attic mold remediation in Westwood.
MOLD REMOVAL IN WESTWOOD BATHROOMS As most residents of Westwood know, bathrooms are a common source of mold. There is always the possibility that water will intrude into a bathroom and, subsequently, negatively impact the entire home. Leaks or overflows that cause water to intrude into the walls and floors facilitate mold growth. Condensation on ceilings and walls in bathrooms that lack an exhaust fan can also create an ideal environment for bathroom mold development. Significant bathroom mold should be removed by a trained professional so that it doesn’t cross contaminate the other areas within the living space or work space. Microscopic mold spores can spread through the home and are extremely dangerous to inhale. Call PowerBees today to inquire about mold remediation in Westwood bathrooms.
