SERVPRO Mold Cleanup Technologies Can Save on Repair and Replacement Costs

When Naples property owners discover mold in their residence, it can be tempting to remediate it with "do-it-yourself" solutions. While all buildings contain some microbes, total mold removal is not possible regardless of whether homeowners or professionals do the remediating. However, professionals can ensure that spore populations are reduced to safe, pre-disaster levels. 

SERVPRO renders 24/7 mold damage remediation for Naples homes. Restoration technicians are trained to do more than just clean: mold mitigation training includes decontamination and containment procedures that prevent microbes from spreading outside the impacted area. 

How Mold Damage Impacts Residential Structures and Why Fast Remediation is Crucial

Spores tend to settle on building materials in areas with minimal air circulation, elevated humidity, and suitably warm temperatures. Whether the conditions that allow these microbes to proliferate come from construction, stormy weather, or a pipe leak, homeowners should keep an eye out for contaminants on the following materials: 

  • Anything paper or cardboard-based, including drywall, consists of a layer of gypsum sandwiched between paperboard sheets. This construction makes it porous and amenable to mold growth under the right conditions.
  • Check behind fixtures like glue-up shower enclosures for signs of mold growth. Dark growth along cracks in sealant and a distinct musty odor are among the first easily detectable signs.
  • Microbes can also grow on wood and concrete, including home foundations, which can eventually decay essential structures.

SERVPRO Mold Damage Mitigation with Cutting-Edge Restoration Technologies

SERVPRO's diverse mold remediation tools are designed to maximize effectiveness and flexibility during restoration. Technicians must undergo education on mold damage mitigation per Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) protocols.

Technicians utilize such equipment as:

  • EPA-registered biocide solutions can be sprayed, fogged, or applied manually with mops, cloths, syringes, brushes, and other applicators.
  • Commercial-grade personal protective equipment (PPE) minimizes the risk of secondary mold damages when paired with SERVPRO's adherence to microbial containment and equipment decontamination protocols.
  • Moisture extraction with rovers, carpet wands, and truck-mounted units for large-scale moisture exposure are essential for minimizing mold odors and making a Naples home inhospitable for microbes.
  • Structural drying equipment includes axial or centrifugal air movers and dehumidification units. The primary mechanisms used in SERVPRO dehumidifiers include low-grain refrigerant coils and silica gel desiccants.
  • A suite of odor control options, including water- and solvent-based sprays and fogging solutions, time-release gel capsules, and scented granules.

After mold cleanup, technicians can reinstall drywall and make necessary repairs to structures impacted by microbes. SERVPRO also cleans and restores contents affected by mold damage with such tools as OSHA-approved immersion cleaning solutions, HEPA filter vacuums, and ozone generators, which can denature mold to prevent inert spores from impacting a home any further. 

We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and can render mold inspection and remediation assistance at any time of the day or night. SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is a phone call away from beginning the mitigation process at (239) 302-5700.

Address Mold Damage Promptly to Avoid Secondary Issues

Mold damage in Naples is common, particularly given the damage from Hurricane Ian in 2022. Some telltale signs of mold growth include a musty smell, discoloration in walls and ceilings, and mold spots typically round, dark, and fuzzy. As soon as you detect any of these changes in your house, it is time to call a reputable mold remediation company to assess the damage and potential ramifications. As with most things, prevention and early detection are key to avoiding significant consequences.

In Naples, mold damage remediation is possible with SERVPRO’s expert help. Our certified experts arrive at your home equipped with the latest techniques and technology to detect and mitigate mold presence. At the core of our effective approach is the use of appropriate cleaning methods that fit the type of mold and how widespread the issue is. Whether it is a chemical, mechanical solution, or a combination of both, you can trust our staff to make an educated decision protecting your home. 

Some of the techniques we might use include the following-

  • HEPA vacuuming quickly eliminates excessive mold particles and sets the stage for a successful process. 
  • They are essential in cleaning the air in your home.
  • For items suitable for wet cleaning methods, using EPA-approved solutions is effective, especially in removing stains and deep cleaning.
  • Not surprisingly, applying antimycotic solutions is also helpful in controlling mold spread and keeping its growth under control.

Why SERVPRO Uses Dry Ice for Mold Damage Repair in Naples Houses

12/2/2022 (Permalink)

white dry ice pellets on a surface SERVPRO's use of dry ice blasting remediates mold damage with minimal harm to structure and contents in Naples properties.

Blasting Makes Mold Damage Repair Easier & Faster

Microbes like mold need to stay attached to whatever surface they feed on to survive. Once taken away from their food source, they quickly die. In addition to food, they also need an ongoing moisture supply in your Naples home. When mold flourishes, your house needs professional mold damage repair services.

SERVPRO technicians use a blasting technique that acts like sandblasting but with much less mess. We know you want to protect your home in Naples, and mold damage repair is an excellent way to accomplish that goal. Our blasting method uses tiny pellets made of dry ice instead of sand. Although the pellets sublimate into thin air, they still remove mold from durable surfaces, just as if we had used sand, and without using water.

There are other benefits to using dry ice pellets:

  • Nontoxic after evaporating,
  • Do not accumulate, and
  • Never require the additional step of disposal.

Once warmed to room temperature, dry ice becomes harmless carbon dioxide. This gas is the same as a large percentage of the gas people exhale with each breath they take.

Because dry ice pellets sublimate from a solid state into gaseous carbon dioxide, they never accumulate like sand does when using that as a medium.

And since dry ice pellets never accumulate, we never need to dispose of them. All we need to dispose of is the mold that the dry ice blasting removed.

Another benefit of dry ice blasting is that the freezing temperatures of the frozen pellets, although requiring us to wear protective gear, kill the mold on contact.

After removing the mold, we can begin the rest of our mold damage repair project. Removing stains from some areas versus repainting those surfaces is a choice we discuss with the property owner. Using dry ice pellets is a less destructive process on surfaces like painted drywall and finished furniture.

Suppose mold eats into untreated wood too deeply and causes weakness. In that case, we can use our contractor license, CBC1261730 (in conjunction with our mold remediation license, MRSR2994), to restore strength to your home’s framework.

Please call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 when mold damages your home.

Skilled Fire Restoration Technicians for Smoke Damage in Naples

Emergency Service Fire Restoration with SERVPRO in Naples Gets Results

When you think about it, smoke stinks in many ways. There are foul, pungent odors, and fire-damaged homes are also subject to corrosion due to smoke’s acidic nature. Whether you had a small stovetop blaze in your kitchen or a full-blown fire in several rooms or floors, your home is susceptible to smoke stains. When left to sit for too long, smoke weakens structural elements and brings a host of risks. SERVPRO features fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) to address smoke damage quickly and efficiently for Naples residents.

How do smoke cleanup and fire restoration in Naples work?

Clearing out debris and smoke remediation are vital factors in the restoration process. As fire breaks out, numerous chemical actions take place. Each material in the home will react differently when exposed to heat, flames, and smoke. There are two common smoke types:

  • Dry Smoke – This comes from burning paper or wood and leaves a dry, powdery gray soot in its wake. This type of soot is easier to clean than a wet smoke situation.
  • Wet Smoke – This black smoke leaves an oily, thick residue that is not easy to clean without smudging and smearing.

SERVPRO’s proven smoke remediation methods

Our professional restoration begins with handling the removal of visible soot. We also have specialized chemical treatments that we may employ to clean and remove non-visible residues. Cleaning ceilings and walls can be challenging for a homeowner to handle as a DIY, but our professional team has the equipment and tools to ensure all surface areas and hidden spaces are covered.

Odor control is paramount with fire restoration and handling smoke residue. We never mask smoke smells but work to eliminate them with air scrubbers that feature HEPA filtration, ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, and other industrial-grade tools and specialized cleaning agents.

When you want professional smoke and fire restoration results, SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island is here to help! Call us at (239) 302-5700, so we can make it “Like it never even happened.”

Mold Damage Control in Naples Properties

7/2/2022 (Permalink)

mold damage on white wall, cracking The best way for Naples homeowners to control mold is to call SERVPRO for professional remediation.

How Can a Naples Homeowner Control Mold Damage?

 If the weather has been significantly humid for a few days, molds may start developing inside the house. Humidity can increase when moisture inside the house evaporates into the air. Poor ventilation can increase indoor RH relative humidity to a conducive level for mold spore germination. One of the contributing factors to indoor humidity issues is drying clothes indoors. The HVAC system in the house can also lead to humidity problems when heating or cooling the air within the structure.

If mold damage has overtaken your Naples home, you can count on SERVPRO to deal with the situation. We have efficient tools and products to eliminate mold, and our technicians have many years of experience ensuring a smooth restoration process. Following IICRC guidelines, we can return your home to preloss conditions quickly and professionally, "Like it never even happened."

Mold thrives in humid conditions and prefers when the relative humidity is above 70%. Therefore, removing water vapor from the air is essential to mold damage control. We use dehumidifiers, which pull in moist, humid air and then replace it with dry, warm air. The dry air absorbs moisture from wet items like a sponge. SERVPRO uses two types of dehumidifiers:

  • Desiccants--rely on chemicals to absorb water vapor
  • LGR-low grain refrigerant that works as an air conditioner

Once the mold is eradicated, deodorization is necessary to neutralize the pungent smell left behind by the fungi. Ultra-Low Volume Foggers can atomize liquid deodorizing agents and produce a fine mist that penetrates areas with odor-causing residues. We also use the device to inject fungicides and disinfectants into hard-to-reach areas such as wall cavities.

 Thermal foggers are also helpful in mold damage deodorization. They discharge solvent-based products in large, dense fogs ideal for confined spaces. The fog comprises small particles that bond with and neutralize odor-causing agents.

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island can make your home seem "Like it never even happened." For any assistance, call us today at (239) 302-5700.

Why You Should Choose SERVPRO for Mold Removal in Your Naples Home

With its location on Florida’s west coast, Naples residents are almost used to the effects of the storms that strike us each year. What many of them miss are the after-effects with improper water removal, or when a flooded area like an attic is not suitably dried out. In these situations, mold can cause as much damage when it grows unchecked.

So why should you choose SERVPRO response teams for mold removal in Naples? Our technicians train extensively to not only remove mold but remove the source of moisture that caused the growth to begin initially. They use the latest equipment and methods to ensure every home is free of active, growing mold when they finish.

The SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) start by finding the full extent of the growth and the water source that allows the first spores to develop from their inert state and grow. Once discovered, team members remove the water and dry the immediate area to stop further mold growth. If there is a leak, our technicians can perform minor repairs to pipes, connections, and even replace hoses.

Next, they remove the mold. When possible, technicians clean surfaces using cloths and sponges. For thicker layers, they use an antimicrobial agent to break them up for easier removal. If the mold has already begun to penetrate the surface of roof support or other wood beams, SERVPRO technicians use wire brushes to break up the mold. If needed, they can also use hand or power sanders to remove the top layer and dig out the mold. With our Mold Remediation Contractor License #: MRSR2994, we can even complete the rebuilding, "Like it never even happened."

Finally, technicians vacuum up the mold spores, dust, and other particles. Each vacuum they use contains a HEPA filter which is designed to capture almost every mold spore off a surface. Attached hoses direct everything out of the home and into a catch bag to prevent accidentally spreading the mold to unaffected parts of the house.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is to restore each home to safe, livable condition. If you suspect or see there is mold in your home, contact us today at (239) 302-5700 for an inspection and free estimate. We are here for you.

SERVPRO Technicians Root Out the Causes of Mold Damage in Your Home

The danger of managing seemingly minor water damage yourself is missing secondary issues like the leading edge of mold growth. If your home gives off a musty, sour smell, some moisture will likely remain after believing all the water was gone. Hoping the smell dissipates is unwise as its source is, in all probability, mold. The mold detection team at SERVPRO is your best bet to locate concealed pockets of microbial growth. 

Your carpeting soaked up some driving rain a few weeks ago when the wind blew hard through an open window. Calling in a professional water removal company seemed like an overreaction, so you ran a shop vacuum over it and used some fans to avoid mold damage to your Naples house. Now you worry that skipping a professional inspection was a mistake. Better late than never, invite our mold remediation experts to help determine if mold grew and needed abatement. 

Unless you lifted the carpeting and dried it on both sides, you left a perfect breeding area for spores in a few different places. The underside of the carpeting offers a network of fibers and cords that provide good cover for mold. Damp padding is also an incubator for mold growth. The final areas that go undetected even by inexperienced or poorly trained restorers are the carpet tack strips. Often made of untreated softwood or particleboard, these strips soak up water like a sponge and resist superficial efforts to dry them out. These moisture-laden pieces of wood are a buffet for molds, unseen but still have foul odors. 

Our IICRC trained techs always pull up carpeting and often determine to replace the padding. It is an inexpensive fix that avoids the collateral damage of mold growth. Tack strips dry out if exposed to air and warmth, and we apply both during almost every job with wet carpeting. Evaluating moisture levels and meeting drying goals gives the homeowner the best chance to ride out wet carpeting without subsequent problems. 

Time passes, making easy solutions less effective. Your carpeting and padding now need replacing as mold entangles with every fiber. We contain the area, running an air scrubber to keep airborne spores in place. Carpet and mold disposal follows local regulations, and the subfloor receives disinfection. New padding, carpeting, and tack strips install for a price you prefer to avoid but no longer have that luxury. 

Next time your floor coverings take on rainwater, contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island for a friendly review of the situation. Making that appointment is as easy as calling (239) 302-5700.

SERVPRO Follows IICRC Procedures for Mold Damage Removal in Naples

Not all Naples area mold remediation firms have a well-designed or standardized plan of action for completing their work. This disorganized approach to inspection, cleanup, and restoration projects can lead to problems. Fortunately, companies like SERVPRO follow professional, industry-supported procedures to finish your job quickly and effectively.

Naples mold damage removal experts like those at SERVPRO are expertly trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Thus, educated and qualified, our mold specialists know all of the best practices for mold inspection, mold removal, and black mold damage repairs. In general, they adhere to the following guidelines when dealing with mold:

  • The mold-causing moisture issue should be identified, located, and fixed so that it does not cause future mold-related problems
  • Occupants and workers should have their exposure to mold limited as much as possible and clean areas should be properly protected from contamination
  • Interior environmental conditions and mold remediation efforts should be thoroughly documented and monitored until things are returned to normal
  • Mold should be contained at its source with proper equipment, like negative air machines, to prevent contamination from spreading to other areas
  • Workers need to remove mold above normal levels by damp wiping impacted surfaces with detergent-laden sponges, vacuuming it into HEPA filters, or simply removing mold-damaged items

SERVPRO can usually return your residence to its pre-mold state in less time than other local remediators by remaining mindful of these principles and completing its projects accordingly.

With all that said, if you are ever in need of mold damage removal services, don’t hesitate to call your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island. We are ready for your call at (239) 302-5700 whenever you need our assistance.

What Is Needed to Deodorize After a Naples House Fire?

Smoke Detector For any type of fire damage in your home you can count on SERVPRO to help.

Multiple Deodorization Practices Are Often Needed After Naples House Fire Damage.

Fire damages impact homes and businesses rapidly, spreading from room to room and becoming a formidable hurdle in restoring comfortable living conditions. Our fire restoration professionals provide fast mitigative solutions and deodorization practices that can get you back to your home faster.  

Removing Smoke Residue and Debris

It is important to address fire damage in Naples homes like odors by removing catalysts that worsen these conditions. Our professionals prioritize soot and smoke residue removal to remove effects that amplify malodors. 

The Severity of Odor Penetration

How severe odor penetration and density become impact the type of restoration and deodorization practices needed to help. In most situations, these loss effects fall into one of three possible categories:

  • Light – Smoke only impacts a small area in a fire that has little to no structural damage or smoke residues. 
  • Moderate – Residues are present on many surfaces. Convection currents carry smoke particles, soot, and odors away from the ignition point. 
  • Heavy – These scenarios feature incredible structural damage, substantial smoke residues, and the spread of the effects in the complete structure or a majority of the property. 

Effective Deodorization Tools 

Various tools are needed to fully deodorize affected areas of homes and businesses. While specific units in our inventory are ideal as counteractant approaches to reduce the severity of smoke and fire damage effects, machines like the hydroxyl generator and ozone machine ultimately complete the work. 

While odor removal and cleanup are typically among the final stages of fire restoration, this is still an important step in returning a property to preloss condition. Our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team works fast with our leading fire restoration professionals to mitigate loss and get life back to normal. Give us a call today at (239) 302-5700.

a flooded kitchen with the furniture floating everywhere Flooding can overtake your home without warning. Call SERVPRO for water removal and flood damage remediation technicians.

SERVPRO techs know that the damage you can see in your Naples home may not be all there is to address

When intense storms come through in Naples, they can leave behind different kinds of problems to clean up. In many cases, it is an excellent decision to bring in professional help because consumer-grade shop vacs and fans standardly used in homes do not possess the power to dry a structure and contents as rapidly as needed to avoid problems such as spreading water damage from wicking into sheetrock or under the flooring. Additionally, temporary repairs may be required, such as tarping over a roof to halt any further rain from entering.

What Structural Hazards May Happen After Flood Damage?

When SERVPRO techs handle the cleanup of flood damage in Naples homes, the techs perform a double-layered scoping of the property that includes locating the migration paths of the water within the structure and identifying any hazards that are present such as:

  • Wet, sagging ceilings with the potential to collapse  
  • Electrical shock hazards from outlets coming into contact with floodwater
  • Slip and fall dangers are present anywhere slick flooring or a saturated subfloor is wet  
  • Contaminated water can post a significant threat to come into contact with

What Does Safe Cleanup of Storm Damage Entail?

The technicians wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and ensure that structural hazards within the property get removed through the use of their controlled demolition actions. This action performs the dual purpose of eliminating dangerous situations and opening up ceilings and walls for better airflow during the drying phase of the mitigation.

Because the restoration services can take time to extract the water and dry the structure, keeping out unauthorized individuals is necessary. SERVPRO technicians can board up windows, doors and put up yellow security tape to set clear boundaries around the job site.

The cleanup of flood damage needs to begin immediately. Call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 for fast, professional service for any size water problem in your home.

Stains and Odors Accompany Fire & Smoke Incidents--Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

Not all smoke and soot residue after fire damage to your home is the same. The success of a restoration process depends on the type of residue. While some types of residue are easier to clean, others can be notoriously difficult to eliminate.

SERVPRO technicians can employ different methods to tackle a different type of smoke residue after a fire incident to your Naples home. The type of smoke and soot residue affects the time required for the restoration.

Dry and Wet Smoke Residue

Almost all fires produce both wet and dry smoke residue in varying proportions. As both of these residues differ in the damage that they can potentially cause, they require different methods of elimination.

Fast burning and fires that have an ample supply of oxygen produce predominantly dry smoke. On the other hand, fires that burn slowly and are deprived of oxygen produce a predominantly wet smoke residue.

Dry residue is easier to clean, and SERVPRO IICRC-certified professionals can restore more material in such cases. Cleaning such residues requires less aggressive procedures and causes lesser secondary damage. That said, the dry residue is generated by hotter fires, which can cause more damage compared to the colder fires.

The wet smoke residue, on the other hand, is predominantly generated when the fire burns slowly and is more difficult to clean. Wet smoke contains a higher proportion of solvent and other liquid components. As fires generating wet smoke burn slower, they have ample time to reach between crevices and enclosed areas. It can be quite challenging to clean the wet smoke residue even if the damage due to the actual fire is minimal. Extreme measures such as stripping and refinishing may be required to clean such residue.

Protein Residue

Protein residue is a common feature of fires that originate in the kitchens and involve burning poultry, meat, or fish. These organic materials produce smoke that is rich in protein residue and has a yellow or amber color. Such smoke can cause discoloration of walls and other exposed surfaces. Another problem with protein residue is the odor, which can linger on for days after the incidence and often requires deodorization. Thermal fogging can follow the path of the odor airborne smoke odors and chemically alter them. This challenge is handled by SERVPRO FST technicians by also setting up ozone machines when the property is vacant of people, pets, and plants, and when not, hydroxyl generators.

SERVPRO Says Control Humidity and Temperature to Help Reduce the Chance of Needing Mold Remediation

If you have never experienced bathroom mold, you may be fortunate, or perhaps you simply are not looking in the right places. If you let it get out of control, it can cause significant damage, while if caught early enough, there is a simple fix. 

Taking a shower or a bath creates enough steam for your entire bathroom to remain damp for a short period. Leaving behind moisture that creates the perfect environment for mold damage to develop in your Naples home. 

At SERVPRO, we often find that lingering moisture, leaky fixtures, wet cellulose materials, combined with poor ventilation, provide mold with the food source that it needs to flourish. If you can see it or smell it, the problem is likely already more significant than you know. 

SERVPRO technicians deal with situations all of the time where bathroom mold symptoms are not always obvious. It could be hiding just out of sight, under your sink, inside the cracks and crevices of your bathroom fixtures. Mold can even develop in your basement or crawl spaces and attic, both above and below your bathroom. 

How Do You Prevent Mold Damage? 

Start by using the proper ventilation in areas of your home that have constant moisture sources or appliances that develop steam during use. There is more than just your bathroom to worry about; mold damage can happen just about anywhere. 

Cooking in your kitchen develops steam, which is usually handled by oven vents if you take the time to use them. Likewise, running your dishwasher, clothes dryer, shower, or tub all requires ventilation. This ventilation should be left on for at least 30 minutes after you finish using them. 

If you do not have the proper ventilation, have it installed. The goal is to maintain a household (RH) relative humidity level of 50% or less. Air conditioners and dehumidifiers can help you achieve and maintain a constant level in your home. 

When deciding on the type of shower curtain to purchase, look for one labeled as mildew-resistant and wash or even replace it frequently. At the same time, you should also take the time to clean your bathroom mats often; once a week would not hurt. 

Taking all of these precautions may not entirely prevent problems from developing. When things get out of hand, call in a professional from SERVPRO. We can help you discover the source of moisture creating your problem, fix it while also removing and drying any standing water, even those small pockets found hidden in your walls.

A kitchen blaze in Naples requires firefighting water and fire damage restorations completed by professionals who understand the challenges of protein-based soot. The fuels for most kitchen fires include grease, oils, and different foods. Residues left are very different from the soots created when other building materials or contents burn, which is why SERVPRO chooses specific interventions.

How Do Protein-Based Residues Complicate Naples Fire Restoration? 

After a kitchen fire, Naples residents struggle with soot that is incredibly difficult to remove. Unlike the looser ashes of a wood-fueled fire or the sticky coating that is the aftermath of rubber or plastic burning, overheated and burned foodstuffs create varnish-like filming composed of the dehydrated oils, meats, grains, vegetables, fruits, and more. This coating:

  • Tenaciously adheres to surfaces
  • Drifts far from the ignition site on hot air currents 
  • Appears clear and nearly colorless, thus hard to locate
  • Carries a particularly noxious malodor as the heat causes proteins and oils in the foods to become rancid

What Strategies Used by Professionals Resolve Protein-Based Soot Issues?

Intensive training in the principles and elements of cleaning provided by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is why SERVPRO is well-positioned to achieve fire restoration after a kitchen fire. After assessment by a seasoned project manager, technicians complete fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup employing:

  • Oil-based (solvent) cleaners to dissolve the residues
  • Abrasive tools and/or cleaning solution additives that increase the efficiency of agitation (rubbing or scrubbing) to loosen stubborn films
  • Advanced deodorization technology that uses enzymes, oxidation, or hydroxyl generation to alter the chemical composition of the odor-bearing protein-based soot particles to neutralize the stench

Training, experience, and state-of-the-art equipment and products are why SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island inspires confidence in our fire damage restoration skills. Call (239) 302-5700 to schedule an assessment today.

Why SERVPRO for Mold Inspections, Remediations, and Removal in Naples

Mold Damage Remediation in Naples

Hurricane and tropical storm season is upon us again. With the storm threat approaching, homeowners should be concerned about possible side effects from the coming storms.

Mold damage in Naples can start with just a tiny amount of moisture and the right surroundings. Even though an area flooded with stormwater is now dry, there is the possibility of remaining moisture behind drywall or hidden in your home. SERVPRO is ready with the equipment and experience to find it and remove it.

Once mold spores have enough moisture to expand, they grow quickly, feeding on the surrounding building material. Often, this goes unnoticed until the infestation has spread to a common area such as a bathroom or hallway or someone smells that distinctive musty odor. If you see or suspect mold damage, call us for a free, initial inspection.

Mold Inspection

If our inspectors discover mold, we can determine the source and just how far it has spread. Once the affected areas have been determined, our restoration team develops a plan utilizing our extensive inventory of equipment and antifungal and antimicrobial cleaning agents to thoroughly clean and remove the mold.

If the source is found to be behind a wall, we can drill several holes in that area and use specialized fans to force air into it to dry it out. If this is not successful, that section of drywall may need to be removed and replaced. Moisture saturated drywall is very delicate and can crumble simply by picking it up. Once the section is removed, the affected area can be quickly dried, and then the now inactive spores can be vacuumed out.

The weather in Collier county has the potential for tropical storms, and high humidity and excessive moisture are always average around here. If you detect that distinctive musty odor or otherwise suspect there may be mold in your home, call us at (239) 302-5700. SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is ready to help you secure your home from any mold contamination or any other restoration need.

SERVPRO Works to Restore Homes After Fire Damage

Naples often has the reputation of a prime retirement city in Florida and is indeed a major retirement destination.  However, it is also a city with a rich and abundant history dating back to before Florida's discovery by Ponce de Leon in 1513. The Calusa tribe lived in the region before Ponce de Leon arrived until war and the Europeans' diseases destroyed them within 40 years. Later on, in the 1700s, the ancestors of Seminoles resided in the region. Seminoles were comprised of the Creek tribes and escaped slaves and refugees.

It wasn't until the late 1800s when General John Williams from Louisville, KY, heard about the region and decided to buy land and develop a city. In 1885, General Williams and his business partner Walter Haldeman chartered a boat and sailed to Naples, where they found a beautiful beach stretch. They stayed, built homes, and developed the area into a town; officially in 1886, establishing a town named Naples. In 1889, the business partners opened the Naples Hotel in the center of town. Rose Cleveland, sister of President Cleaveland, was the first official guest of the hotel.

For the next 50 years, Naples remained a small town until Collier County's creation in 1923 by the wealthy Barron Gift Collier. At that point, it developed into the larger and more prosperous city that we see today.

Popular activities in Naples and the surrounding areas include:

  • Outdoor exploration: Naples is close to the Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, various beaches, estuaries, and swamp areas containing diverse wildlife ranging from alligators to sea birds to dolphins.
  • Visiting the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary: Home to one of the best bird-watching sites in America.
  • Golf: The average temperature of 75 degrees year-round makes enjoying one of the 80 golf courses found in Naples very enjoyable.
  • Going to see the smallest post office in the USA: found just outside of Naples, the Ochopee Post Office.

Dealing with Lingering Odors After a Fire

SERVPRO conducts fire damage restoration in Naples and the surrounding areas. Although Naples has a warm climate, house fires, typically originating in the kitchen, are still quite common. Kitchen fires quite often create a tough to remove residue and long-lasting odor. The trained professionals at SERVPRO use various techniques, equipment, and cleaning products to rid your home of lingering smoke odors.

Technicians may use some of the following cleaners to neutralize or remove odors:

  • Oxidizing cleaners such as StainZap. Oxygen-based cleaners break down odor-causing molecules and remove organic stains.
  • Counteracts beads that combine with odors to destroy the odor-causing bacteria.
  • Humectants combine with airborne particles to create precipitation onto surfaces which can then be wiped away.
  • Masking agents such as air fresheners.

Water damage to your Naples home happens in many ways ranging from the presence of standing water to the deterioration and weakening of structural elements. Having an answer to each of these problems used to require multiple contractors working on different aspects of recovery and repair. Our SERVPRO professionals have a comprehensive approach to restoration that encompasses nearly all of the structure's needs with our extensive roster.

Several aspects of water damage repair for Naples homes must begin as soon as our technicians and contractors arrive. Mitigation is one of the vital elements to a successful restoration, as this process reduces overall loss and ultimate costs of the work to be done. Our contractors and technicians work together to accomplish several critical tasks upon arrival, including:

  • Plumbing Repairs – When plumbing pipes or connections cause water damage in the home, these elements must be replaced or repaired by our building trade professionals. We limit the amount of tear-out necessary to access these areas using moisture meters and thermal imagery. 
  • Cleaning Debris – Our contractors must also notice any debris and deteriorated construction materials like drywall and ceiling tiles that might require cleanup.
  • Extraction – Several water removal tools ranging from wet vacuums to submersible pumps, help eliminate pooling surface water concerns.

When Does Reconstruction Occur? 

After mitigation completes, it has become customary for customers to anticipate acquiring a secondary contractor to handle repairs and reconstruction. With in-house contractors available on our SERVPRO team, we can begin this vital service as soon as mitigation draws to a close.

There are many concerns with water damage disasters that impact your home. However, with a combination of building trade professionals and experienced technicians on our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team, we are ready to help. Call us today at (239) 302-5700.

Why Should You Look for Mold Removal Companies that Help Your Store Staff Prepare?

10/28/2020 (Permalink)

image of tablet, smartphone with ERP The SERVPRO ERP Plan can mitigate the effects of mold, water, and fire damage to Naples area commercial buildings and expensive inventory and stock.

Naples Store Owners need Mold Removal Companies that Understand Their Needs

Whether your store is a shoe shop, a grocery store, or a DIY emporium, you know that being closed for too long is bad for business. Naples entrepreneurs need to keep their doors open so they can welcome customers and make money. Even a short closure is inconvenient and puts you at risk of losing money.

If you notice fungal growth in your business, you need to find mold removal companies in Naples who understand your needs. We are a franchise company with access to national resources and training while still being locally owned and operated. Because our team also lives and works here, we are sensitive to the local business community's needs.

Why is it essential to prepare for mold removal?

You might think of preparing for a more massive disaster like a fire or flood. However, it is crucial to prepare for mold remediation too. Mold might not seem like a big deal, but if you do not treat it swiftly, it can:

  • Spread to other areas of your business
  • Cause a moldy odor that customers will notice
  • Damage wood, wallpaper, carpets, and drapes, along with inventory

How does a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile help staff prepare?

We designed the SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile program (ERP) to help businesses prepare for a disaster, including mold. Your ERP means your staff always knows what to do and what to expect when something goes wrong:

  • First, sign up for an ERP account and fill in your details
  • Then download the free app
  • Print out a Field Form.

The information will sync so you can manage your account from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. You can also set our local franchise as your preferred mold remediation company. Write the required information on the form, and take pictures when the app asks you too. Then log on using a computer or laptop and fill out all the data from the Field Form.

Your ERP gives your staff the information they need about who to call and what to do if they discover mold. You can also use the app to get in touch with us. Because the information is pre-populated, the submission process is faster, and we can begin remediation more quickly.

Do not let mold slow your business down. Call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 to schedule an appointment for the ERP Plan.

Can The Odors Be Removed After A Fire in My Naples Home?

9/4/2020 (Permalink)

A chair with soot and fire damage. Soot and smoke can take over your Naples home after a fire, let SERVPRO help you with that.

Smoke Residue and Soot Leave Lingering Odors – SERVPRO Can Have Your Home Smelling Fresh and Clean Once Again

Residential fires make up more than one-fourth of reported fires. The most common causes of house fires include heating, cooking, electrical, intentional, and smoking-related fires. While every situation in Naples is different when it comes to fire intensity and damage, one thing they all have in common is the nasty odors that are a result of smoke and soot.

Can I Get Rid of The Smell Myself?

Many people think merely removing charred and smoke damaged items gets rid of the smell. Smoke residue permeates material throughout the house. Soot can settle into the tiniest cracks and crevices. Removing the pungent odor left after a house fire involves a multifaceted process. Fire damage restoration in Naples is better left to a professional company that has the experience and expertise in mitigating such situations.

Locating the Source of the Odors

SERVPRO has fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) that are well trained. They are also Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified. They know where the smells are most absorbed, such as carpet, ductwork, and insulation. Painted walls, window treatments, and upholstered furniture hold smoke odor as well. Other things that can hold foul odors include:

  • Charred items – These need to be removed as soon as possible as they contribute significantly to the terrible smells. 
  • Insulation – A specialized vacuum is used to remove the affected insulation.
  • Ductwork – If the HVAC system operates after the fire, it can spread smoke and soot rapidly.
  • Water damaged items – These can develop mold and contribute to the odors circulating throughout the house.

Odor Control is Vital to the Restoration Process

Improving air quality means capturing airborne particulates. Soot particles are microscopic, and it requires special equipment to remove those particles. HEPA vacuums, HEPA filters and air scrubbers can be used. Another way to keep soot from spreading is to provide physical containment in places such as vents and doorways. 

If the blaze involved firefighters and hoses, water extraction is dealt with right away. The cleanup of the charred remains takes place next. This can involve both structural components and the content of the home. Before new building and restoration can begin, odor control is required. If not mitigated before this step, the new materials pick up the same smell. Another reason for eradicating odors first is you cannot build or paint over them. 

What is Used for Odor Control and Removal?

Our technicians use a variety of equipment and procedures to remove odors from the home. These include:

  • Time-release gel pellets if the problem is mild
  • Deodorizing cleaning agents
  • Hydroxyl generators to capture and neutralize soot in the air
  • Thermal fogging for strong odors
  • Sealants before painting
  • Deep cleaning of upholstery and carpets
  • Ductwork cleaning

Clothing, linens, and drapes may require off-site cleaning to remove the smells. Dry cleaning and home machine washing may not take care of the problem. Not every circumstance requires all of the above. Our technicians assess each circumstance and determine the proper combination of equipment and procedures to remove fire damage smells from your residence. 

Beyond Odors – Comprehensive Fire Restoration

If your residence has been affected by a fire, it can turn your world upside down. You may find yourself displaced and facing the loss of much of your house and content. Even a small fire can disrupt your daily life. At SERVPRO, we understand how devastating both situations can be to you and your family. We provide fire damage restoration that deals with your situation from start to finish. Our goal is to return your home to you, so it is, “Like it never even happened.” Our crews are committed to making that happen. We are locally bonded and licensed.

We work with you and your insurance company to take as much of the burden of restoration of your shoulders as we can. You may only need a general cleaning and odor removal because of a small fire. Another situation may involve total restoration to the structure and the content.

Water Cleanup Services In Your Naples Home

2/16/2020 (Permalink)

water damaged property If you experience a greywater emergency, contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

Textile Water Cleanup Services that Naples Residents can rely on

Your kitchen and bathroom drain away thousands of gallons of water each year via a series of pipes, joints, and sewer systems. Over time debris may build up inside the pipe and begin to stagnate. Stagnation could include mold growth, rust, or copper coloring to affect the pipe itself before clogging up the waterway resulting in both malodor and the potential for a sewer backup. In these situations removing pipes or leaving water running could result in large quantities of stagnating water entering the home.

Many residents choose to use professional water cleanup services in Naples to assist with a greywater emergency. Greywater emergencies are characterizable by the presence of microbes, including bacteria, fungi, and potentially viruses. Unfortunately, a body of greywater can infect other areas of the home. These may include your carpets, flooring, or the building materials in your home's construction. SERVPRO offers professional restoration using qualified technicians from the local area.

Our goal when restoring a greywater emergency is to return your home to a sanitary condition. Sanitary conditions are achievable once the level of microbial damage, soiling, and microorganisms are under control, and the home returns to a healthy environment. Sometimes extra care and attention must be given to textiles, which, as a porous material, can absorb both moisture and microbial infestation at the same time. Using proven cleaning methods, SERVPRO can ensure that your textiles- which may include curtains, carpets or upholstery- return to a preloss condition.

The types of fiber of a textile- natural or synthetic- influences the cleaning approach SERVPRO uses. We pre-test the PH balance of materials as well as the PH of the particular type of soiling. Our goal is to return the affected material to a neutral PH by applying acidic cleaning products to alkaline soilings such as those found in greywater; we can effectively restore the carpet or fabric to its reasonable condition. Pre-testing, in this way, helps to ensure that damages are given the most effective treatment.

If you experience a greywater emergency, contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

The Most Important Elements of Water Damage Remediation in Naples

1/30/2020 (Permalink)

pipe leak underneath sink Contact our experienced SERVPRO team when you have leaks due to plumbing. We make it "Like it never even happened."

Water Damage Mitigation In Naples Can Require The Use Of Different Chemicals

Plumbing failures are one of the most common types of insurance claims that take place in the Naples region. Pipes can burst unexpectedly, and before you know it your home is the victim of excessive water damage. The issues created by excessive moisture can vary based on the source of the leak. If the source is freshwater, then different procedures get taken if the source is a sewage pipe that contains "black water."

If the source is "grey" or "black" water, steps to decontaminate items could have to be taken. During water damage mitigation in Naples, our SERVPRO technicians can use a variety of chemicals to help kill any harmful bacteria, parasites, or fungal spores. Chemicals often get used in the restoration industry to help prevent mold growth and to decontaminate any of your building materials or contents that got negatively affected by harmful microorganisms.

In the restoration industry, four main types of chemicals are used when dealing with moisture-related issues. One thing that sets our SERVPRO team apart from other professional mitigation contractors is that we have a vast knowledge of the different chemical types, and we know their advantages and disadvantages.

  1. Phenolics

These aromatic alcohol-based solutions are usually water-based and can work as disinfectants and antiseptics. Their advantages include the fact that they are inexpensive and are effective against a wide variety of bacteria and fungi. However, one setback is that these products have a strong odor.

  1. Quaternary Compounds

Quats disinfect and sanitize by rupturing the cell walls of microorganisms. Quaternary compounds are also relatively cheap and can work against several types of harmful bacteria and fungi. One disadvantage of using these types of products is that they are inactivated by organic matter.

  1. Gluteraldehydes

Gluteraldehydes are sanitizing agents that work well as bactericides and sporicides. These products are non-corrosive and less affected by organic matter. These types of chemicals, though they are expensive and toxic in large amounts.

  1. Chlorine

Bleach products have a germicidal action and can be used to fight viruses, bacteria, fungi, molds, and mildew. Chlorine's advantages include the fact that it can remove stains and has a low toxicity level. However, the chemical has a strong odor, and it can remove dyes.

If you ever suffer from a plumbing failure, it is wise to call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700. We are available 24/7, and We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Tips For Mold Damage Repair In Naples

12/29/2019 (Permalink)

mold growing on wall Safe removal, disposal, and containment of microbial growth are essential to avoid re-occurring property damages.

Forgot to Install a Vapor Barrier in your Naples Home? Use these Tips for Mold Damage Repair

If your crawlspace lacks a vapor barrier, there is a chance that wet weather could cause mold growth. During the winter period, increases in rainfall can result in pooling beneath your home. When the water evaporates, it can increase humidity levels or form damp spots, which are a prime reason for uncontrolled microbial growth. A house with a porous, wooden subfloor can then develop a severe infestation, which may manifest as unpleasant odors or dry rot.

Conducting mold damage repair in your Naples home is a big job. Containing the issue at the source should be an essential part of your remediation prep work. Mold reproduces by releasing microscopic spores into an indoor environment. These spores can be unhealthy in high numbers but also contribute to the more noticeable effects of malodor.

Setting up a containment area, a clean room, and equipment to prevent spores spreading is the first task for a SERVPRO restorer. The general principle of mold remediation is to remove and safely dispose of all contamination and infestation. Common residential building materials like insulation, sheetrock, and drywall are all porous, which is ideal for mold colonies. When disposing of articles with the outbreak, use double-sealed polyethylene bags to prevent spores from escaping when you are transporting them through the building.

Porous materials are often inexpensive to replace. However, natural materials in your home's construction may also be susceptible to infestation. Wood remediation may require invasive procedures to remove the contaminated area altogether. Sandpaper can help to remove several layers from woods, leaving a clean, smooth surface that a SERVPRO technician can refinish using an anti-microbial primer. To ensure that mold problems do not keep returning, you may want to filter any spores from the air using an air-scrubbing device.

Safe removal, disposal, and containment of microbial growth are essential to avoid re-occurring property damages. Contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

While Florida homeowners know the risk that water damage can post their homes, storms are not the only issue that they need to be prepared for. A water pipe with 1/8" crack, for example, can release 250 gallons of water per day. This can create environments that allow mold and bacteria to thrive while affecting the structural integrity of drywall, wood, carpeting, and other materials in your home.

If your Naples home has suffered water damage, certified SERVPRO technicians can be at your home within hours of your call to mitigate issues and restore your home and possessions to a preloss condition. If your home requires mold remediation after water damage has occurred, your local SERVPRO is certified to take on the job (license #MRSR2994).

When SERVPRO technicians come to your home, they can get right to work on mitigating damage from a pipe leak or other water-related disasters, coordinating with property owners and insurance adjusters to formulate a plan of action. If water damage is affecting your walls, technicians can remove baseboards and drill holes in between studs to maximize ventilation for the drying process. Not only does this improve the effectiveness of drying efforts, but it also allows technicians to check on the condition of insulation, and whether it can be restored after it has been affected by water. If your fiberglass insulation is restorable, technicians can vacuum it up and dry it separately while removing moisture from wall cavities.

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island  can ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." For rapid disaster cleanup, call (239) 302-5700 today.

Tropical Storm Damage in Marco Island is no Match for SERVPRO

Efforts to Help Marco Island Flood Victims After Tropical Storm  

Hurricane Dorian waned considerably in strength and destructive power once it reached Florida, allowing Marco Island residents to avoid what felt like an inevitable catastrophe. Nearly a month later, Tropical Storm Nestor arrived with a surprising force, hitting much of the community with strong winds, debris, and precipitation that compromised the integrity of many structures throughout the coastal region. Before this storm ever made landfall, however, our SERVPRO professionals were ready to roll out to help.  

Part of being an experienced storm response unit is having qualified technicians ready to address situations like flood damage in Marco Island homes in real-time. The faster that professionals like ours can reach a damaged residence, the better able to protect the house and its people we are. We have trailered desiccant dehumidifiers, generators, and other large loss equipment that can help us to address multiple homes’ damages simultaneously. Tropical storms that hit like Nestor can leave many houses vulnerable to this possibility.  

Because of our ability to prepare for landfall of this widely destructive storm system, we can respond quickly to those in need as they inform us of the damage to their houses and businesses. Because this storm damaged hundreds of properties between here, in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and other coastal communities, preparing in advance ensured that property owners did not wait for the mitigation and restoration efforts they needed.  

With licensed (CBC1261730) contractors, we can help with emergency solutions for structural openings and breaches that can make restoration impossible. Tarping, board up services, drywall removal, and even temporary fencing can help to protect your property while our SERVPRO professionals get to work on mitigating your losses inside the house.  

Preparing for the possibility of events like Tropical Storm Nestor has qualified technicians standing by to begin mitigation and offer real-time emergency construction solutions. We have a full roster of certified professionals on our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team ready to help. Contact us anytime at (239) 302-5700.

Why You Should Trust SERVPRO For All Your Restoration Needs in Naples

Let SERVPRO handle all your restoration needs.

SERVPRO Sets the Bar for Restoration Services in Naples

Our area is much more than homes and businesses, as our communities are rife with marine vehicles and comfort vessels, all of which are equally susceptible to specific disasters and effects. We offer a full-scale restoration experience for Naples properties, encompassing every phase and step from the initial damage assessment through reconstruction and later recovery efforts. With our commitment to having the best available products and equipment in our industry, we have inspired a brand and company loyalty amongst our team, and many of our crew chiefs and upper management have been with our team since we first opened many years back. 


Addressing mold and microbial threats in any Naples property always starts with identifying the source of moisture and water damage that feeds the organism. As elevated relative humidity levels can be a threat on their own to facilitate mold growth, the direct cause might not stand out immediately. In all of these situations, we leave nothing to chance and identify moisture and dampness pockets in a non-invasive manner with infrared imagery or non-probative moisture detection meters. This insistence on preventing material intrusion is even more valuable on yachts and other marine vehicles. 

We have entrusted this division of our SERVPRO team to highly trained Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) and Water Restoration Technicians (WRT) accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) Mold damage in Naples homes is much more than just removing colonies and drying out the damage, however. Our team must also begin combatting additional effects throughout the building, such as airborne concerns and malodors. 

Without an immediate response to mold growth, which can often be improbable in Naples homes and businesses, the effects can rapidly deteriorate hosting materials like drywall. As a mold contracting team licensed in the state of Florida (MRSR2994), we can utilize our experience in the building trades to implement controlled demolition techniques and effective and efficient build back and reconstruction.


While fire recovery in a Naples home or commercial property can prove challenging enough, these conditions are even more exasperated on a boat or ocean vessel. Learning to address the same priorities in material recovery, content management, and odor removal in these marine vehicles helps us to stay actively attuned to the needs of our customers wherever they might be. We do not want to keep you from appreciating your investment in the boat for extended periods. 

Fire damage in Naples, whether on the water or in one of the thousands of area homes, requires patience and skills to overcome fully. We understand the various levels involved in recovering these properties, and understand fire loss restoration is much more than just debris removal and build back – though we offer these services as well in the early stages. These obstacles are less destructive and insurmountable with a complete roster of accredited professionals with IICRC certifications in multiple areas, such as: 

  • Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT)
  • Odor Control (OCT)
  • Carpet Cleaning (CCT)
  • Upholstery & Fabric Cleaning (UFT)
  • Water Restoration (WRT)

Marine vehicles, as well as many of the beachfront homes throughout Naples, have complex and unique building materials ranging from specific fabrics, vinyl, and textiles. With less destructive cleaning methods like soda blasting for soot and smoke residues, we can maintain the original look and strength of these materials without compromising the substrate. 


We seek to continue being the premier brand that Naples property owners trust when water loss incidents arise. With the severity of these situations, and how quickly they can spread through a home, we must maintain readiness for emergencies by keeping trailers and service vehicles of our Green Fleet stocked and ready to mobilize at a moment’s notice from our nearby SERVPRO facility. With a continually staffed emergency line, residents can reach our professionals directly to get field technicians in route to help. 

The training of our responding professionals is a focal point of our entire restoration team, as we strive always to provide the best candidates to recover water damage in Naples houses. With this in mind, our professionals have refresher coursework every week and continued training in their respective niches to sharpen their skills and introduce new practices, equipment, and products into our regular rotation. 

We attract high-caliber restoration specialists and can maintain these employees, making our water recovery division one of the most experienced and fast-responding in all of Florida. Our team knows how different sources can create water loss scenarios, and we have licensed commercial contractors (CBC1261730) and the latest practices and products to help Naples homes, businesses, and marine vehicles.


Experience matters when you need storm damage recovery in Naples properties, and that starts with the team that has the training, expertise, and equipment to make a difference quickly. Our professionals not only have high regard here, but have caught the attention of the governing SERVPRO company to encourage our technicians to help out in disasters that have damaged areas of the country like North Carolina, the Caribbean, Texas, and other areas of Florida. 

In this coastal community, the threat for severe weather systems coming in from the Gulf of Mexico is one that gets closely monitored all the time. At any point, powerful systems can break towards the shoreline with enough intensity and strength to tear down buildings, hurdle debris, and bring about additional harmful effects like flooding. We stay prepared with a response team capable of performing temporary construction to prevent further flood and storm damage to Naples homes and businesses. 

Because so many of these widespread flooding scenarios over the years have involved multiple properties simultaneously, we can rely on the full measure of our Large Loss Recovery Team. Not only can this provide more boots on the ground to aid in the overall recovery of Naples, but it can also provide additional resources, including air movers, dehumidifiers, extractors, and cleaning agents. 

We strive to be everything that our customers need, especially in a time of crisis. No matter what emergency threatens your home, business, or boat – our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team can help. Give us a call anytime you need us at (239) 302-5700.

Nope, Not a Naples Florida Alien Invasion? Just a SERVPRO Technician Remediating a Mold Infestation

Containment and Remediation for Your Mold-Damaged Naples Home

Mold growth is a misunderstood and underappreciated situation in Naples homes. With so many homeowners battling wet crawlspaces and other damp areas of their properties, mold growth can feel like a natural result of this struggle. With the structural damage and degradation that can result from mold colonization, remediation is a necessary step to take upon the discovery of this hazardous organism, and our team can help anytime that you need us.

Remediation and removal are steps that should happen immediately whenever you discover mold growth occurring in your Naples residence. With the high volume of remediation and recovery equipment that our SERVPRO team keeps stocked, we can respond to these emergencies 24/7 to get work started promptly. The faster that our professionals can get to work on these disasters, the less they can spread and degrade more materials.

We have containment strategies to keep mold spores and the colonies themselves from moving beyond their current scope. Physical barriers with plastic sheeting, antimicrobial sprays, and machines like our air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators can filter out spores and keep the effects from mold growth from moving to new areas of your property. Both machines have HEPA filters to trap mold spores, dust, and debris, but the hydroxyl generators can also begin the process of eliminating the harsh musty odor that often accompanies mold growth and colonization.

Our IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians AMRT have effective mold removal strategies as well depending on both the hosting material and the severity of the infiltration. From sanding and spray-on solutions to light abrasive soda blasting options, we can remove the entire hyphae of the organism and the threat before beginning restoration and recovery efforts like reconstruction.

While mold growth might be a misunderstood and underappreciated threat to your home, our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island remediation specialists can help you to overcome this unwanted growth with precision and confidence. That is Why so many property owners trust SERVPRO. Give our professionals a call anytime at (239) 302-5700 to make mold damages “Like it never even happened.”

Professional Water Removal Services You Can Trust When In Naples

Naples Beaches, Zoo, and SERVPRO. Have a Water Damage problem?

Mitigating Damage from Water Infiltration is a Renowned SERVPRO Service

Whether it is a broken pipe or any flooding that is behind the water damage challenges in your home or business, there are specific procedures to follow for successful water removal. If you fail to treat flooding as an emergency, then your Naples property may suffer long-term adverse effects. Exposure of your structure to excess moisture for a prolonged time may lead to further damage, including mold development.

If you opt for professional water removal services in Naples, then you are likely to mitigate the damage. You need to know what is salvageable and what to replace when faced with such disasters, and that is what a certified service provider like SERVPRO assists you to achieve. Restoration as a process is technical, and our technicians are trained to choose the most appropriate methods to use.

A substantial amount of water on your property may force us to use submersible pumps when extracting it. Typically, the amount of water on your property determines the technique we use. In some cases, we may heat your rooms to make the wet materials release the moisture into the surrounding air. However, more damage can result when the air ends up with additional moisture. At this point, we put in place dehumidifiers - devices that lower the relative humidity by removing the extra moisture from the air and either capturing the molecules or expelling them to the exterior.

Many cases may compel us into using air movers – devices that facilitate airflow and make wet surfaces lose moisture into the air. For instance, our SERVPRO technicians may put a carpet in position and place air movers under it to reduce its drying time. This is called "floating the carpet." If moisture is left unattended to, then conditions for mold growth can result and lead to possible health effects.

There is no need for alarm when your property suffers water damage since you can always rely on SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island for trusted services. Call us at (239) 302-5700 and be served by industry leaders.

Why SERVPRO of Naples? The Best Equipment and Crews for Water Removal and Restoration

Why SERVPRO’s Water Removal Services Deliver Premium Results in Naples

Residents of Naples hope to avoid the need for water mitigation in their homes. Unfortunately, circumstances sometimes conspire, a burst pipe or a window left open over a rainy weekend spreading water over your beautiful wood floors or soft, cozy carpeting. This kind of crisis does not quickly resolve with a DIY solution. The training and equipment a professional remediation company can bring to the task are why we offer our services.

It is not uncommon for water removal to be an immediate need in Naples. Water soaks into flooring as a natural course after a leak, spill, or another event exposes your home to significant amounts of moisture. The trick to getting the water out of your house is to match the tools and technique to the specifics of the problem. Our experience and commitment to updating our crew member’s certification in current water removal trends show why we are a solid choice when seeking water mitigation.

The first step we take when determining the proper approach to remove the water is a thorough inspection of the materials affected. Carpeting installed over non-hardwood or laminate floor responds well to in-place drying. The key is that the subfloor does not absorb or become distorted by the water. Our crew stops the migration of water using our truck-mounted extractors and then switches to weighted equipment to express as much of the water as possible. Professional experience is essential to prevent the carpet from delaminating, stretching, or tearing as we run the tools over the same area several times. This expertise is why SERVPRO delivers excellent results.

If hardwood is the primary or subfloor, we use pumps and extractors to remove the standing water. Then we choose from other professional techniques and tools to suction the residual moisture from the planks and the under flooring. Our use of drying mats accelerates the removal. Crew members place, secure, and move the mats as needed, employing negative pressure to draw the water from between and beneath the planks. The competence our employees demonstrate while using the mats proves why SERVPRO invests in this innovative and efficient equipment.

More efficiency during the final applied structural drying phase illustrates why  SERVPRO’s comprehensive water removal effort is needed. The faster we go from water-soaked to normal moisture levels translates into customer satisfaction for our superior outcomes. "Like it never even happened."

Call us at (239) 302-5700 to schedule an appointment. Let us prove why SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island provides the best water removal results.
