Protecting Naples Attractions After a Fire Loss
With Hundreds of Attractions and Landmarks Around Naples, Our Restorers Stay Ready to Help After Fire Disasters
Tourism is one of Naples' driving forces, with hundreds of attractions and desirable locations for relaxation and entertainment. This area is a coastal community that continues to draw in traffic through each season of the year. Much of this traffic is attributed to our natural vistas and protected land reserves, such as the Everglades National Park or the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. These attractions have been a point of pride for the residents and tourists alike to respect the environment and the local spirit of caretaking for nature, including the multitude of beaches throughout our Naples and Marco Island area, which in itself can draw in hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.
Often considered one of the origin points for the sport of pickleball, Naples has also accommodated this growing trend with pickleball courts in most of its public parks. The sport has become so popular in our area that Naples has been the home of the US Open Pickleball Championship every year since the tournament began in 2016. This sport can also contribute to our community's increasing popularity to outside travelers and tourists visiting Florida.
Shopping Experiences in the Greater Naples Area
As with any popular tourist destination throughout the country, the community would be remiss without its inclusions of outlet stores and shopping destinations for those looking to boost our local economy when they arrive. Shopping makes up a large share of the county's revenue, making Marco Island and Naples both profitable in all quarters of the year. Providing a variety of nationally recognized franchises and anchor stores can be a draw for tourists and the unique local offerings provided by shops and stores throughout downtown Naples or other more developed areas of the community.
- Coastland Center – This is a shopping mall located within the city that has been in business since the mid-70s. One of the premier destinations for shopping within the locale, Coastland Center is home to more than 120 stores and services. With roughly one million square feet of retail space and restaurants, this is an active pillar of the community year-round, accommodating both the influx and tourism through the year's warmer months and the steady local traffic expected from the 20,000 residents living in Naples alone.
- Waterside Shops – While not within the Naples city limits, Waterside Shops has become one of the attractions that anyone staying within Naples or nearby in areas like Pelican Bay or Marco Island can shop for whatever pleases them. While not as prominent and developed as Coastland Center, Waterside Shops features two primary anchor stores and close to 60 more stores and services throughout more than 250,000 square feet of space. Throughout this open-air mall, the leading retailers cater to a more luxurious audience with brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Rolex.
Cultural Centers and Museums that Preserve Naples History
Protecting the natural environment around Naples and Marco Island is as valuable as protecting our heritage, history, and culture that makes up our diverse community. Not surprisingly, there are multiple cultural centers and museums throughout the city and its neighboring areas devoted exclusively to protecting local history by preserving artifacts, stories, and promoting tourists' and locals' general education. Some of the historic properties and museums that often make the list of those visiting the attractions of Naples include:
- Naples Depot Museum - As a fully restored station by the Collier County museums organization, this cultural center focuses on exhibits devoted to transportation in Southwest Florida. A miniature railway runs around the property's perimeter, but even this is second to longstanding displays for the railroad, the Seminole tribes of the area, and antique vehicles.
- The Baker Museum - This facility used to be known as the Naples Museum of Art and has been in operation since 2000, and includes a diverse collection of art collected worldwide, with permanent exhibits devoted to Mexican art of the 20th century, sculptures, three-dimensional art, and pieces of American modernism.
- Golisano Children's Museum of Naples - A facility that is more than 30,000 square feet in size, children of all ages can see exhibits devoted to the swamps of the Everglades, mazes, banyan trees, and other incredible sites and interactive experiences.
Restoring Naples Homes and Businesses After Fire Losses
Fires can be a devastating presence in your home and leave many property owners unaware of what their next steps should be. Because we can appreciate how quickly fires can get out of control, we are prepared for the mitigation that your property requires at all hours of the day. As a preferred vendor for local insurance companies to complete claims work, we are often notified quickly of emergencies even before property owners consider how restoration must occur.
As a leading fire restoration team in the area, we have a growing roster of experienced technicians capable of handling some of the most challenging post-fire recovery aspects. Soot cleanup is among the direst of circumstances. These circulating particulates are carcinogenic and acidic, making them a hazard to both the occupants of the house who become exposed and any hosting services upon which these particles come to rest. Cleaning these surfaces and affected contents varies considerably from one area of the house to the next, so careful evaluation goes into the appropriate approach and products to ensure the most efficient solutions.
From fire debris removal to deodorization, there are many steps and stages to fire restoration and the reconstruction necessary upon mitigation completion. Our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team can help with nearly every aspect of restoration and repair your property requires. Contact anytime at (239) 302-5700.
