Our Professionals Discuss Hot Water Extraction Carpet Cleaning In Naples

Commercial Water Damage Experts From Naples Describe Hot Water Extraction Carpet Cleaning

If a pipe ever breaks inside your daycare facility in Naples, the moisture can spread throughout your building. Wet carpets often account for a major portion of any commercial water damage claim. When carpets get saturated, they can become delaminated and have to be replaced. Slightly damp carpeting materials can attract dirt, bacteria, and they can be a source for mildew-like aromas. When starting any moisture-related restoration project, our SERVPRO technicians extract carpets first.

Our primary goal when mitigating commercial water damage in your Naples daycare building is to dry out all of your building materials, including your carpets as quickly as possible. We start with extraction; then, we move to the applied structural drying or ASD phase. During ASD, your carpets can be floated by putting an air mover so that it pumps air underneath the carpet and dries out your flooring materials and subfloor.

After all of the moisture gets removed and your carpets are dry, there could still be issues that need to be addressed. Your carpets could be soiled from dust attaching to the wet fibers. The water also could have caused staining. Since our SERVPRO technician's goal is to always return your place of business to its preloss state, we often conduct carpet cleaning as a part of the final cleaning phase.

Since you are in the business of taking care of children, we know that your facility needs to have clean floors. Since you have kids' toys placed on your carpets and children running and crawling around on the floor, we know that your floors need to look clean and be sanitary. When dealing with light to medium soils, we often use hot water extraction to clean your floors.

When cleaning with this particular method, we utilize a portable or truck-mounted extractor. The extractor sprays heated water-based detergents and vacuums up the excess moisture at the same time. The operator also moves the carpet cleaning wand in a "V" motion to create agitation that helps remove dirt and stains.

Having clean carpets for your customers' children is vital when running a healthy daycare facility. In the event of a plumbing failure, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700. Once we are finished, your place of business will look exactly as it did before the leak, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Can Quickly Remediate Water Damage at Your Business Location

Restoring a business back to its original state has its own unique requirements. Different property absorbs water and deteriorates at different rates. Since paper is one of the first items to decay, a bookstore's primary concern is not going to be the carpet or the hardwood floors. It is going to be their inventory. In this case, lowering the moisture level will be their first concern and our first task. 

It will not be an easy one in Florida, but it can be accomplished. The inspector on our SERVPRO response team will use a commercial moisture meter to measure air content levels in every corner of every room. This allows us to determine the fastest plan to regularly reduce levels and restore commercial water damage in Marco Island. Our team will pump out any standing water as quickly as possible as the inspection begins. We need to do this to provide a safe working environment for our people and the store's employees. 

Technicians will set up commercial air movers as soon as it is safe. This begins the process of replacing the damp air with dry air. This lowers the moisture level and pushes air over the inventory, drying books, and other property. 

Once the air movers are set up, the response team members will assist the store owner in moving property out of the affected area. It is essential to isolate everything that should be thrown out to determine what can be saved and returned to inventory. Our IICRC trained team members can also assist in laying out salvageable books and other property on dry surfaces to help facilitate a faster restoration. 

Dehumidifiers will be installed in corners or small rooms where air movers cannot be used effectively. These devices can draw up to 30 gallons of moisture a day from the surrounding air. 

The weather forecast is good now, but rain is always in the forecast. Regardless of what business you may own or operate, SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is ready to help you recover and reopen your doors. Call us at (239) 302-5700 to get started.

Complete Mold Damage Remediation in Naples

10/8/2021 (Permalink)

"Got Mold? Call SERVPRO" SERVPRO will get to the root of your mold problem and work to eliminate and prevent further growth. Call us today for assistance.

Contact SERVPRO for Remediation in Your Business

Business properties can be susceptible to musty odors and damp spots. Sometimes these issues are benign and the result of older builds. However, in many cases, these issues are the symptoms of active mold growth. Mold is a living organism that can reproduce rapidly in the right conditions. Microorganisms like mold can also release spores, the reproductive element, into the indoor air, which can cause health effects. As the property manager of a business, it is vital to enlist a professional remediator when confronting mold on site. Remediators can help you to deal with:

  • Mold removal
  • Mold identification and assessment
  • Indoor air quality issues

It can be useful to bring in an indoor environmental specialist (IEQ) as part of your Naples business's commercial mold remediation team. IEQs use manometers to measure pollution in an indoor environment. Utilizing this equipment, they can monitor the effectiveness of remediation and confirm when an area is safe to work in or open for customers. SERVPRO is happy to work alongside an IEQ on site but can also provide value by removing physical barriers to mold infestation and providing certifiable quality remediation. Our own set of tools helps us identify and monitor problem areas at your business, which, in turn, helps return the premises to its preloss condition. 

  • Thermal hygrometers measure humidity levels in a property which can be central to the mold growth problem. 
  • Using air circulation equipment or dehumidification, we can reduce the indoor humidity to a level that prevents mold from reproducing at a normal rate. 
  • Our team is experts at safely removing and installing parts of the building assembly as well as performing HVAC cleaning and inspections. 

If mold affects your business, contact SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island for mold remediation at (239) 302-5700.

SERVPRO Is One of the Best Naples Water Removal Companies. 

Naples is a South Florida city known for, among other things, its diverse and highly-rated dining options. It has routinely appeared on popular rankings of top cities for unique restaurants and food offerings. In fact, recently, the community of just over 20,000 residents was on Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s “Best American Cities for Foodies” list. In the listing, travelers ranked Naples seventeenth in the nation, alongside big cosmopolitan cities like Boston, New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans, in terms of its restaurants’ quality and diversity of offerings. However, while highly praised and successful, local restaurants do face serious threats. Like establishments everywhere else, they are often at risk of leak-related water damage.

Naples’ Amazing Food Options

The abundance, sophistication, and quality of Naples’ dining establishments are astounding, given the community’s small size. There is a remarkable and varied array of meals from around the world to be had in this little city on Florida’s sleepy southwest coast. Some of the more notable restaurants to be found here are:

  • The Grill at the Ritz-Carlton, which specializes in exquisite steak, seafood, and vegetarian dishes
  • Bha! Bha! Persian Bistro, a restaurant serving exotic Iranian cuisine
  • The French Brasserie Rustique, where you can enjoy gourmet French folk food
  • Inca’s Kitchen, which serves fine Peruvian fare like the steak dish Lomo Panca Imperial
  • Osteria Tulia, an establishment with rustic charm that serves sophisticated Italian meals
  • Truluck’s Seafood, Steak & Crab House, a restaurant specializing in unique high-end surf & turf entrees

Common Sources of Water Damage for Local Restaurants

As noted earlier, operating a successful restaurant comes with its risks. One of these is the ever-present possibility of a business threatening water event. More often than not, when such an event occurs, it is the result of a leak coming from a malfunctioning appliance. The most common leaky appliance scenarios are:

  • A washing machine with a ruptured connecting pipe, worn-out hose, or loose fitting
  • Supply or drain line issues in an old dishwasher
  • Ruptured or damaged water supply line in a refrigerator
  • A water heater issue related to a corroded tank, burst pipe, or loose fitting
  • Improperly activated or defective fire extinguishing appliances

Any one of these scenarios could close a restaurant for some time and cost it considerably.

So, call SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 whenever you need prompt, commercial-grade water removal services.

What Can I Do to Facilitate Potential Water Removal Efforts at My Naples Business?

As a responsible Naples business owner, there are a few things you can do to aid potential water clean up and water damage remediation efforts at your restaurant. These measures, among other things, include:

  • Always having professionals handle your appliances’ water connections and maintenance needs
  • Turning off your restaurant’s water main to stop the flow of water
  • Disconnecting malfunctioning appliances from power sources
  • Quickly drying off impacted areas not requiring professional services
  • Relocating easily movable contents away from standing water to limit needed water damage repairs

With all this in mind, remember, when you need water removal help, call SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

SERVPRO Recommends Thorough Commercial Mold Remediation in Marco Island Properties

When visible mold gets discovered within a property, that is just a symptom of another problem that needs correction as rapidly as possible. Some of the most common reasons include a slow leak, poor ventilation, or drainage. The need for a fast resolution is particularly real in a business with public foot traffic, as exposure to mold can cause health effects in some individuals. 

After handling commercial mold remediation in Marco Island business properties, SERVPRO technicians look at the ventilation system. Because naturally-occurring mold spores are airborne, when an infestation occurs, it is not unusual for the ductwork throughout a building to have signs of mold damage along with dust and build-up from use. 

The technicians have specialized equipment to collect dirt and debris from the ducts and specially-formulated cleaning agents and antimicrobial solutions to ensure the surfaces get thoroughly cleaned. The benefits of a deep cleaning include: 

  • The HVAC operates at peak efficiency
  • Removal of musty odors
  • Inhibits the spread of spores 

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 performs commercial mold remediation of any size and type in local Marco Island properties.

Even Residents of Posh Resort Cities Like Naples Face Challenges 

The luxurious history of Naples began earnest in the 1880s when U.S. Senator John Stuart Williams of Kentucky became interested in developing a city in Southwest Florida.  In 1885, Williams partnered with Walter Haldeman, owner of the Louisville Courier-Journal, to explore the southwestern Florida coast and find a suitable community location.  The two would-be developers eventually found the perfect site where modern-day Naples stands today.  This “paradise coast” consisted of miles of sandy oceanfront beaches with a sizable bay behind them.  Haldeman and Williams formed the Naples Town Improvement Company in the Fall of 1886 to bring their envisioned town into existence.         

The Development of Naples

The new dream city on the Paradise Coast quickly emerged from the sandy shoreline.  It was named after Naples, Italy, because of its bay, position on the southwestern end of a peninsula, and sunny weather.  The centerpiece of the newly built community was a sixteen-room hotel, positioned on the narrowest piece of land between beach and bay, which opened in 1889.  The town’s other important early feature was its pier that was two blocks distant from the hotel.  As you can imagine, Naples soon became a thriving beach resort area where wealthy patrons attempted to escape the cold weather of their more northern residences.  As time progressed, the community became more accessible to outsiders.  Rail service arrived in 1927, and the Tamiami Trail, which passed through town and connected Miami to Tampa, was completed in 1928.            

A Mecca for the Rich and Famous

As with other small coastal Florida towns, Naples has attracted a lot of wealthy vacationers and homebuyers.  This magnetism started almost as soon as it was built.  The community’s developers, Williams and Haldeman, were both prominent men.  Rose Cleveland, sister of U.S. President Grover Cleveland, was Naples Hotel’s first guest when it opened in 1889.  Numerous other notable people soon followed in her footsteps.  Over the past 130 or so years, several celebrities have also made the picturesque seaside community their home.  Some of the more recent of these have been author Robin Cook, billionaire sports team owner Shahid Khan, Best Buy founder Richard Schulze, Judge Judy’s Judith Sheindlin, prolific narrator Peter Thomas, and a host of professional sports players.  

The Glittering Lure of Naples

So, what attracts affluent people to Naples?  Well, several obvious things make the resort town the perfect place for moneyed individuals.  First, the area offers them access to numerous luxurious leisure activities like:

  • Yachting:  there are several local yachting clubs and a multitude of fascinating seaside landscapes to explore nearby
  • Water sports:  with easy access to both the ocean and protected bays, water sports enthusiasts can enjoy such activities as swimming, parasailing, jet-skiing, and water skiing  
  • Golfing:  wherever guests or residents are in Naples, there is always a fine country club close by
  • Exploring nature:  the local area boasts several state and federal parks/forests/preserves/wildlife refuges like the Collier-Seminole State Park and the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge.     

High-end shopping and dining:  Naples is home to numerous luxury shopping and fine dining establishments

All of the above certainly entices well-heeled visitors and homebuyers alike to venture into our city.  However, access to these activities alone is not the community’s only draw.  Prosperous people seeking to relocate prefer this part of Southwest Florida for a second reason, namely the sheer number of opulent properties it has to offer potential buyers.  The most notable of these multimillion-dollar residences can be found on:  

  • Gordon Drive
  • Galleon Drive
  • Rum Row
  • Gulf Shore Boulevard
  • Admiralty Parade
  • Spyglass Lane

Potential Downsides to Living in Naples

While Naples is an attractive place to live for many reasons, there are some negatives and risks you face if you choose to live here.  These are mostly financial or weather-related and include such things as:

  • A poor job market
  • A high cost of living
  • Real estate scams and shoddily-constructed housing

Severe weather, including heavy rains, flooding, waterspouts, and hurricanes, during the region’s rainy season that lasts from mid-May through October.

If you can dodge the financial risks of locating in this pricy Southwest Florida community, you are still always subject to its sometimes troublesome weather.  Strong hurricane-force winds can easily damage or even blow the roof off your home.  These winds can also turn lawn furniture into destructive projectiles and cause trees/tree limbs to fall on your roof.  At the same time, heavy rains and storm surges could quickly inundate everything in sight.

With all that said, as your neighbors, the skilled technicians at SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island are always here to help you.  If your business is ever flooded because of a roof or appliance leak and you need water removal services.

How Can I Determine if My Business Has a Water-Related Issue?

As a Naples business owner, it is crucial that you locate and effectively deal with all water-related damage as soon as possible before it develops into something worse that could potentially threaten your operations.  This is especially true for operators of businesses like hotels and restaurants.  In order to catch water-related issues early, SERVPRO suggests that you have your business periodically inspected by professionals and watch out for the following signs of water damage:

  • Musty odors
  • Mold or mildew growths and surface discolorations
  • Disintegrating drywall or plaster
  • Dry rot
  • Wall or ceiling warping
  • Buckled floors and similar issues

If you notice any of these problems, you likely have a water leak.  This could be caused by several things, like a damaged roof, leaky pipe, a malfunctioning appliance, or corroded water container.

Your neighbors at SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island advise you to take all water-related issues seriously, regardless of their apparent severity.  We would also like to remind you that we are always here to help you with all your water removal needs.  Call us whenever you need us at (239) 302-5700.

    •    Tools and Equipment – Technicians use sponges to clean walls and floors, and long-handled squeegees for ceilings. If residues penetrated wood surfaces, they have the option to use powered agitators with a cleaning agent, sanders to remove top layers of beams and other support structures, and foggers that generate a cloud of cleaning particles that deeply penetrate surfaces to eliminate odor-causing particles.

What Does SERVPRO Do to Bring Back the Original Appearance?
To finish the restoration, our administration staff works with insurance companies and owners to get the most out of the policy to return the business to its pre-fire appearance. This includes sourcing the original paint color from photos and other sources to apply to ceilings and walls. If tables and chairs are restorable, technicians use air movers and special brushes to return each piece to its pre-fire appearance.

Even if your business has suffered only minor damage from smoke, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 today. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster and can help you quickly reopen your business.

How Can Soda Blasting Help With Mold Damage In My Naples Warehouse??

Naples Business Owners Need Effective Mold Damage Help

If your Naples business includes a warehouse, then that building is vital to your business operation. Whether you use your warehouse to pack food, produce car parts, or send out educational materials, you need the building to be safe and fit for purpose.

Mold damage to your Naples warehouse is frustrating. Mold looks and may smell terrible, and if you do not treat it effectively, it can quickly spread.

Why is mold hard to clean?
Mold is challenging to clean because:
    •    Not all mold damage is immediately visible
    •    Household cleaners (especially bleach) can make it worse
    •    Mold spores are microscopic and can quickly spread to other parts of your warehouse and start new colonies

What is soda blasting?
Soda blasting uses tiny baking soda particles (yes, the same thing used in making cakes!) to gently scrub surfaces. SERVPRO technicians aim the blasting machine nozzle at the surface, and the machine uses pressure to pelt the wood or brick or other surface with soda particles.? Soda blasting is a similar process to sandblasting, but the media we use is softer and less abrasive.

Why is soda blasting helpful for mold damage?
Soda blasting is ideal for mold damage because:
    •    The particles are soft enough that they do not damage the surface underneath
    •    Blasting takes less time than manual scrubbing, which means you can get back to business faster
    •    Soda blasting is an environmentally sensitive option
    •    Baking soda is a natural deodorizer, so it helps fight mold odors while we work

What happens after soda blasting?
Soda blasting is just one part of the mold remediation process. Our technicians will clean away all traces of the blast medium afterward and set up air scrubbers to further deodorize the premises and remove mold spores and traces of baking soda from the air.
We also monitor moisture levels before and after soda blasting to help us identify hidden mold damage or areas with the potential for further fungal growth. We dry those areas to reduce the risk of new colonies forming.

When we are finished, your business will be Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned. If you have mold in your warehouse, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700.

Naples Area Commercial Buildings Rely on SERVPRO for Mold Remediation

3/8/2020 (Permalink)

Remediation for Mold Growth in Your Naples Clinic

Pressing concerns exist when your Naples medical facility harbors mold colonies. Because of how severe these circumstances can be to the health of those directly exposed, it is critical to address these organisms where they are before the threat can spread. Migrating mold damage is a hazardous situation that could quickly engulf your building without the appropriate steps. Remediation by our SERVPRO professionals can help you to get back to helping your patients while we take care of the microbial presence.

You do not need to have an understanding of the remediation process to appreciate how mold damage in your Naples clinic is a bad combination. With experienced Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) available on our roster, we can offer a variety of services that can often help you to continue working while our technicians address the moisture, mold, and damages.


Containing the mold spores and the migrating colonies is a vital step in ensuring that mold growth does not entirely shut down your facility until remediation completes. The installation of a wood framework and thick plastic sheeting can limit the movement of mold spores and help our SERVPRO team to regulate airflow, temperature, and humidity in this damaged area.

Colony Removal

This containment is also essential when colony removal efforts get underway. From abrasive cleaning to controlled demolition, removing colonies can get spores and volatile organic compounds circulating in the containment zone. These barriers keep your patients from getting affected by these compounds and microorganisms while cleaning continues.


We have many effective practices to dry out the damaged areas of your office, even some specialty approaches designed to address moisture damage to documents and paperwork. Freeze-drying is a process that we can implement on-site, which can often prevent microbial growth from forming on hard copies of patient records.

No matter how moisture became a threat in your clinic, mold growth is often not far behind when the water is left unchallenged. Our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island remediators can help by removing active colonization and providing solutions to keep your facility dry. Give us a call today at (239) 302-5700.

Naples Shop Owners Love SERVPRO's Water Loss Cleanup Service

2/22/2020 (Permalink)

Commercial Water Removal from Your Naples Gift Shop

Imagine experiencing an after-hours leak from a sink in the back storage area of your Naples shop during the height of the tourist season. Your first thought may be frustration and concern about the potential loss of business due to the cleanup.

Commercial water removal in Naples does not necessarily mean that you have to close up shop for an indefinite amount of time. With the right amount of care and quick response, you may not need to shut down for very long, if at all.

The two main concerns to think about are the preservation of your merchandise and drying your shop quickly and discreetly so you can still run your business.

First, SERVPRO water restoration specialists lift anything touching the floor in impacted areas to keep the items undamaged and dry. If materials or displays are wet, technicians may bring them to a safe, dry spot within the shop, or offsite to dry. This may require a temporary display of your merchandise until your permanent fixtures are dry. Hopefully, no merchandise was at floor level and exposed to water; however, if any items got wet, you must inventory your merchandise, assessing the damage to report to your insurance company before attempting to dry them.
Second, you want to remain in business while you dry your shop. SERVPRO technicians facilitate this after they extract any remaining water through portable extraction wands, by placing air movers that produce high-velocity airflow, throughout your shop just above floor level. They work in conjunction with dehumidifiers to enhance evaporation by introducing airflow at the surface level, replacing the wet boundary layer with warmer drier air created by the dehumidifiers. The air movers circulate the drier air coming from the dehumidifiers as they pull moist air from the air, filtrating it and exhausting it back out.

SERVPRO IICRC certified techs understand the importance of keeping your business running during times of pressure and devises an individual plan to suit your needs.

The Ways We Can Remove Mold Colonies in a Naples Clinic

The development of mold colonization in your Naples clinic can be an alarming discovery for many reasons. Not only can this organism spread quickly throughout the facility and threaten many areas, but mold is also a potential health hazard to those exposed. With the patients coming into the clinic throughout the day with various ailments, an added risk of mold exposure can amplify the severity of certain chronic conditions. 

Addressing the presence of colonization and your need for mold removal in a Naples medical facility begins with proper containment procedures. The less we can permit this destructive organism to move around the building, the less staff, patients, and regions of the clinic that can become harmed by exposure. Physical barriers are still the premier choice in these scenarios, however, the deployment of secondary measures like air scrubbers and negative air machines can help prevent the circulation of spores. 

The removal of this active presence is not an insurmountable feat like clearing all mold spores from a building might be, and our SERVPRO team has unique and extensive training into remediation strategies that can gain control of these situations quickly. Among the first steps that we might take when light colonization exists is the application of antimicrobial agents to affected surfaces and structural elements. This approach can eliminate spores on contact and make a surface uninhabitable for future colonization while our professionals work on drying up the area. This approach would also be helpful on wooden furniture and fabrics in the waiting area.

Also, our SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) can use abrasive cleaning techniques like media blasting and sanding to remove surface colonization and help to reduce the pungent odor that accompanies colony development. These techniques happen within a physically contained remediation zone to reduce the exposure of your patients or staff to our mold damage cleaning. 

In worse cases, the only suitable solution is the calculated removal of the affected construction material or personal belonging. We have a team of licensed (#MRSR2994) contractors that can remove deteriorating drywall and other affected surfaces to remove active colonization, more effectively dry the damaged areas, and get your clinic back to business as usual. 

Mold damage does not have to be a dire circumstance when you trust our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team to help. Give us a call today at (239) 302-5700.

Keeping Your Business Operational During Commercial Mold Removal in Your Naples Gym

8/26/2019 (Permalink)

Two SERVPRO Naples box trucks in a parking lot. SERVPRO wants to insure your business is not in a state of shock, and goes back to normal after a mold issue.

We can keep your business up and running during mold remediation in Naples.

Mold can develop rapidly in your Naples gym if there is excess moisture in your premises. In a gym, moisture can accumulate from various sources including residue moisture left over from cleaning activities or steam as patrons take showers. Water loss incidents can also lead to mold growth. Regardless of the source, controlling the problem in time is crucial. However, you might be forced to close down your operations during the removal processes.

Understanding the Patterns of Mold Debris

To perform commercial mold removal in your Naples gym without closing down your daily operations requires deliberate steps to protect the people using the facility. Mold debris quickly dissipates into the air when disturbed and can cause health problems when inhaled. In a fitness center, the impact can be significant since people breathe in and out at a higher rate as they exercise, which can pile up the percentage of debris inhaled within a short while. Our SERVPRO technicians, therefore, follow approaches that minimize the debris released.

Targeted Identification

Mold removal is a multistep process, and each step must be carried out correctly to prevent a recurrence. The essential ones include:

  • Identifying Infested Areas
  • Cleaning Mold Colonies
  • Removing Affected Porous Materials
  • Drying Any Underlying Moisture Problems

Since most of the infestation is restricted to confined spaces, the identification phase can involve significant teardown, thus interrupting your normal operations. To avoid this, our SERVPRO technicians use targeted approaches such as checking for hidden moisture pockets using FLIR thermal cameras, thus eliminating the need to open up walls. We can also make test cuts on walls ensuring we only demolish affected areas during removal.

Use of Containment Barriers

Isolating affected areas before starting removal processes helps prevent the spread of debris. Establishing negative air pressure and running air filtration devices with HEPA filters in the contained areas can help ensure no contamination reaches the rest of your facility where customers exercise. Our SERVPRO technicians use plastic sheets to cover openings such as doors and zipper air-lock containment barriers for other areas.

Mold can interfere with the smooth operation of your fitness center. With help from SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island, you can keep operating during the remediation process. Call us at (239) 302-5700 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Content Management for Water-Damaged Items in Naples Office

7/14/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t panic with water damage, we will have you back to work in no time.

SERVPRO can and will help you with the items that have water damage in your business.

A considerable investment made in your company office in Naples is in the computers, servers, and other electronic devices that help the employees here to maintain their productivity and output. Even the investment made in the furniture and office fixtures can become costly to replace on a widespread scale. Even with an experienced custodial and maintenance staff, there is little that these individuals can do for devices that become damaged by direct water exposure or heightened humidity and moisture content level.  

We can work to address this water damage in Naples offices with the same fast response that we have for every emergency. Our contents department can appreciate how quickly moisture and dampness can cripple your electronic devices and distort office furniture. Because of the time-sensitive nature of this situation and the continued threat of water damage in your facility, our team must act quickly to face these concerns. 

Our SERVPRO team has a content management department that can assess which items in your facility continue to be at risk for devastating water damage. Electronics can get removed from the affected area to a dry location nearby until your compromised building gets restored fully. Relocation is only the beginning to what these items often need, however. Especially with office furniture like wooden desks and shelving, exposure to standing water and excessive moisture can cause deterioration and warping.  

With a prompt response to the situation, we can often address many of these water damage concerns on-site along with the drying and potential extraction needs that the building has. This situational management within the building can help to get your doors back open more quickly, having all of the same original furniture and fixtures restored and ready for use. 

We understand how important it is to get your office building back up and running again after a water loss incident. You can always depend on the advanced drying techniques and extensively trained contents department of our SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island team. Give us a call anytime at (239) 302-5700.

Stormy Weather, Floods in Naples, and SERVPRO to the Rescue

Don't Be Dogged by Closing Your Naples Spa due to Flooding--Call SERVPRO

Fixing Problems that Develop During Commercial Flood Damage in Naples Spas

When people visit spas, they expect a clean, serene environment where they can relax as they receive services. A single flooding incident can ruin your spa by dumping contaminants, soiling contents and causing other problems such as persistent bad odor. We offer professional flood mitigation services in Naples that can help you deal with a flooding incident "Like it never even happened."
Cases of flood damage in Naples spas are likely to involve widespread soiling because of the variety of fabrics available including bedspreads, privacy dividers, and draperies among others. Such materials trap soils easily whether the flooding happens through a roof breach or rising ground water from a local tropical disturbance. Our SERVPRO technicians spray EPA-registered disinfectants in the affected areas. We also use professional cleaning agents to remove soils, along with shovels and squeegees, whatever it takes!
Apart from affecting fabrics, floodwaters also soil materials used on floors and other surfaces. Cleaning such surfaces to regain their preloss sheen is essential to satisfy the expectations of your clients. Our SERVPRO technicians use different equipment to achieve the desired results. We use pressure washers or multi-surface scrubbers to remove soils efficiently.
The beautiful finishes on the floors of your spa are a big attraction for the clients. A flooding incident can ruin them through moisture action or staining. For example, wooden floors can warp, crown or rot when they absorb significant amounts of moisture. The water can also penetrate beneath tiled surfaces causing problems such as mold. Mold stains surfaces and causes bad odor, which can ruin the tranquility your clients expect. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters and sensors to check moisture levels in different materials affected by the incident. Depending on the results we take several steps including creating a closed drying system to restore the facility to its preloss state. All services include a closing deodorizing process to restore the desired ambiance to the facility.
To deal with flood-related problems in your Marco Island, Naples Manor or Old Marco Junction area spas, call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island to help. You can reach us at (239) 302-5700 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration for Your Naples Grocery Store

As an owner or manager of a grocery store in Naples, you understand that several factors are in play that makes your franchise location successful. Something you cannot forget is fire safety. You are responsible for the safety of your employees and customers from a fire. Once you learn about the fire hazards in a grocery store, it is easier to keep everyone safe and protected.

When fire and commercial fire damage in your Naples business is staring you in the face, you need to call the professionals at SERVPRO for help restoring your structure. As a remediation company, we have the knowledge, training, and experience needed to get your store back in working order as soon as possible. Our expertise and tools can make quick work of the repairs and restoration process.

Even if it was a small fire, SERVPRO techs need to deodorize your structure as well once we have made the necessary repairs. Smoke and soot can have lasting effects on the structure if they are not cleaned up quickly, but they also leave behind unpleasant odors that nobody wants to experience, especially around food. We clean up all the soot and smoke left from the fire and use special deodorizers to get rid of the lingering smell, even if we need to use various methods to do so.

There are some fire hazards which are specific to grocery stores which you should know. Cooking equipment is one of the biggest ones, as most stores have deli departments and bakeries where meat and bread are cooked. Cooking equipment is responsible for nineteen percent of property fires, making it high on the list for reasons your store could experience a fire and need fire damage restoration.

Light equipment and electrical systems can malfunction, especially since much power is needed for refrigeration and lighting. Heating equipment also accounts for a large percentage of fires in markets.

Sometimes, fires are intentionally set, so do not rule out arson as a possibility. You’d also be surprised that lit cigarettes are a common cause of fires in grocery stores since a lit cigarette disposed of improperly can quickly cause a big fire.

SERVPRO of Naples/Marco Island wants to help you restore your store in Miles City, Wagon Wheel, or Naples Manor after a fire. We understand that getting your business up and running entirely again is essential to your bottom line, so call us as soon as the fire is out at (239) 302-5700.

SERVPRO - Remediating Commercial Fire Damage To Marco Island Businesses

Fires in Marco Island businesses usually end quickly. The sprinklers kick in automatically and put out any open flames almost as rapidly as they formed in the first place. Most of the damage comes from the residues left behind by the smoke and soot that spread through the structure much further than the heat and flames.

The key to removing commercial fire damage from a Marco Island card and stationary supply store is to do it quickly before it becomes permanent. That is why SERVPRO maintains a 24-hour, response team to meet every requirement, even when the call comes in at three in the morning.

The moment our team arrives on-site, they start with a quick inspection of the facility. The inspector begins at the origin point of the fire and works their way out to determine how far it moved through the building. As they trace the smoke path, other team members determine what types of residues they have to clean and remove. Multiple types are common. Each one depends on the material how hot it burned.

As the team identifies the residues, they also determine the affected surfaces. While a lot of paper products can be damaged by the sprinklers, much of it can be cleaned and returned to inventory if the residue can be brushed or wiped away with no more moisture. Other surfaces require different cleaning methods. For fabric covered furniture, SERVPRO technicians may need a brush or other agitation device and a chemical cleaner to remove soot and smoke residues.

For most items, team members can use a variety of sponges or dry cloths wipe down the surfaces. They do this first to hopefully preclude further soaking items that already absorbed water from the sprinklers or efforts from firefighters. With very thick or sticky residues, they can use a mild cleaning agent to break them up for easier removal. If there is a concern about soaking the item, technicians have the option to use a vacuum to break them up and remove them.

Finally, team members dispose of all residues they cleaned and also dispose of property too damaged by the residues or water for restoration. Every disposal is in accordance with Florida and EPA regulations.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Our goal at SERVPRO of Naples / Marcos Island is to help you reopen your business to customers as quickly as we can bring it back to a clean and safe state. If you need us, we are here for you. Call us today at (239) 302-5700 to start the process.

Never Fear When You Find Mold In Your Business - SERVPRO Is Near!

9/27/2018 (Permalink)

Our team works hard to remediate all mold found in your warehouse so that business can resume with little interruption.

SERVPRO - Commercial Mold Damage Repair To Naples Businesses

When mold goes unchecked in a Naples business, it can grow rapidly throughout the structure. Once it is too late to prevent damage, the business owner needs to quickly repair and restore the building to begin supporting customers again.

Mold can penetrate the surface of many building materials if they have enough time to expand. In a multi-use warehouse operation, Naples commercial mold damage repair requires SERVPRO response teams to use multiple tools and methods to remove mold and repair materials where needed.

Storage areas use concrete blocks where there are chemicals stored that can burn through wood and other materials. Mold spores can expand through the nooks and cracks on the surfaces and cause further damage. Technicians stop minor damage by killing the active spores and then removing them with a wire brush or another agitation tool to dig them out for disposal.

They repair major damage with fresh concrete. First, technicians remove the mold and the crumbling material. After cleaning the empty gaps, they use a trowel to force the concrete into them and allow it to dry. If an adhesive is needed, they mix in a caulk with the concrete.

For wood support structures, there is less opportunity for repair. If the mold penetrated only slightly into the surface, SERVPRO team members can use hand or powered sanders to remove it along with the surrounding wood for a clean look. If the mold went deeper than the surface, there is a threat to the structural integrity. If our inspector determines this is the case, specialists remove the affected wood and replace it.

The same is true for building materials that make up office space in the warehouse. If the mold merely grows across the surface of ceiling tiles, drywall, and paneling, team members can clean them fairly easily. If the mold has barely penetrated the surface of a drywall panel, they can use a scraping tool to remove the affected material and fill in the gaps with a repair compound. Once it dries, technicians sand the surface smooth and then paint over it. If mold penetrated deeply past the surface, it is cheaper and more labor efficient to remove and replace affected panels.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Our goal at SERVPRO of Naples / Marcos Island is to repair a facility and restore to a functioning state so the owner can support its customers and employees. If you need us, call (239) 302-5700 today to schedule a visit and inspection.

From City Hall to a Naples Eatery--Rely on SERVPRO for Commercial Water Damage Removal and Restoration

Naples Business Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Water Loss Restoration

Running a business means that you have to be available to your customers whenever they expect you to be. You serve the community around you, and the last thing that you can afford is a damaging incident that can prevent you from being available to the customers that depend on you. This is the expectancy of any Naples retail location, and if your store deals with a water damage incident, getting it taken care of as quickly as possible is paramount.  
With your profits hinging on being available every day of the week, a water incident in your Naples store needs to get dealt with as efficiently as possible with water cleanup services from SERVPRO. As much as you might lean towards attempting to save money, rarely do business owners encounter a situation where they can clean up the damage and restore the effects from the water on their own. Doing this more often results in worsening conditions over a brief period leading to even costlier repairs and restoration from a professional company.  
Depending on the materials affected by the water and the source of this damage, the approach for our technicians varies. We work to assess the situation as promptly as possible to ensure that our professionals can get to work immediately on restoring the damages. The less time this takes, the less your customers get inconvenienced by the restoration process.  
From weighted extractions to carpeted areas and into controlled demolition to drywall to thoroughly dry out wall cavities, our experience and expertise can ensure that the process is done correctly and to the highest of standards. Our technicians get certified through the IICRC, which set the standards for industry work in our field.  
Water incidents in your retail store might seem simple enough to contend with on your own, but failures to do this adequately can lead to worsening conditions that cost more and take longer to restore. Trust our certified experts at SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island to respond quickly and keep your doors open to the customers you serve. Give us a call today at (239) 302-5700.

SERVPRO - Restoring Commercial Flood Damage To Marco Island Businesses

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island makes it a priority to work around the clock so that your property is restored back to preloss condition.

Our SERVPRO Team is Here to Help Marco Island Commercial Properties

Marco Island is a real gem, even on the beautiful, west coast of Florida. A smaller community like ours depends on every business, from grocery stores to rental agencies. With tourism, such a major part of the local economy, even pet clinics serve a dual function of helping not just residents, but hundreds of visitors every year.

Surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and other bodies like Barfield Bay, Marco Island is more isolated after a storm, so the need to remove the contaminants left by flooding and clean the effects of commercial flood damage is very important. SERVPRO understands that pets often need the same level of comfort and preventive care as their owners. Clinics, like many other businesses, need more than one level of cleaning to reopen their doors and support both residents and tourists.

SERVPRO restoration teams have two cleaning standard levels: Sanitary and Disinfected. Most commercial office areas only need Sanitary cleaning. It is the level of rooms and common areas not involved in processing food or pharmaceuticals but where there is still a concern for the general health of employees and customers. That includes waiting rooms and administrative offices. Once our technicians remove the water and contaminants, most of these areas can stay at this level with a semi-annual cleaning or when there is another disaster.

SERVPRO technicians clean the Disinfected level in areas for food or pharmaceutical processing. Our requirement is to remove 99 percent of all contaminants in the flooded areas. It is also the preferred level in areas for keeping animals, and their food. For example, examination rooms, kennels, operating rooms, and a post-operative, recovery room if the veterinarian keeps one separately. Our technicians follow a checklist created by the FDA for these areas to protect animals and the veterinarian staff.

SERVPRO - Commercial Mold Damage Repair For Naples Businesses

5/8/2018 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Naples / Marcos Island has got your back when mold damage strikes your business.

Learn About SERVPRO's Mold Remediation Process for Naples Businesses 

Mold, once it starts, can quickly infest and damage businesses in Naples. Owners need to quickly call in a professional service to stop the growth, remove it, and then repair or remove the affected property.

Commercial mold damage repair for Naples businesses is not a quick process, but SERVPRO restorations teams do everything they can to make it as painless for the owners as possible. For our technicians, the best method of repairing mold damaged property is to clean it thoroughly, so there is no future growth.

First, however, we have to find and stop the source of moisture. Mold spores remain inert until they come into contact with enough moisture to allow them to expand and begin seeking a food source. If the source is a pool of collected rainwater or a leaking pipe, our technicians spray it with an anti-fungal agent and then remove it with a water vacuum or a series of sponges. The technicians can repair minor damage like a loose pipe, but if there is something larger like a broken water line, we recommend the owner calls in a plumber or general contractor.

Many of the businesses we work in are a standard office setting, like an insurance agency. The primary source of damage is usually to the walls, ceilings, and carpeting. SERVPRO specialists can quickly determine what is salvageable and begin work.

For ceilings, technicians remove the affected tiles or panels. If the mold is dry, they begin by wiping off the mold with a dry sponge. If it does not remove everything, they spray them with an anti-fungal as we did with the contaminated water and then use a clean sponge to wipe them down. If the mold still resists, technicians remove the tile or panel for disposal. Other specialists use the same method on affected drywall and wood paneling.

When mold infests carpeting, our restoration team uses shampooer to apply a strong, anti-fungal cleaner that gets deep into the surface. Each team member is trained to effectively use this machine without causing physical damage to the nap of the carpet. They then use extraction wands to draw out the water, mold, and anti-fungal. Technicians finish the task with a vacuum and a HEPA filter designed to capture and hold mold spores.

Cleaning Ceiling and Walls After Fire Damage to Your Macro Island Store

Hats Off to SERVPRO for Fire & Smoke Cleanup and Restoration on Marco Island

SERVPRO Explains Methods for Cleaning Up Smoke Residue in Commercial Sites

Whether you own a clothing boutique, a bookstore or any other retail shop, the smoke and soot after a fire damage incidence can ruin the aesthetics of the place. Understandably, it can create a massive problem in your business. You can also see potential customers opting for other stores; not to mention the time and money required to clean up the mess.
Professional restorers can help you clean the smoke and soot from the walls and ceilings of your Macro Island store after a fire damage incidence. The IICRC certifies SERVPRO professionals can use plenty of techniques to remove the smoke residue from walls and ceilings in no time.

Cleaning walls and ceilings
Removing the smoke and soot residue from walls and ceilings from your store is crucial to avoid permanent damage or a large amount of repainting. If the film is not cleaned efficiently, it can cause staining that can create more problems. If the walls or ceiling is textured, the smoke particles can penetrate deeper into the small pores of the surface making it even harder to clean. Acoustical ceilings and popcorn type ceilings are particularly more challenging to clean; quite often it is more cost-effective to replace these fire-damaged materials.
The first and most common method the SERVPRO technicians can use is using a dry cleaning sponge. The method is particularly effective if the smoke and soot particles are non-greasy. The professionals often use this method as a pre-clean step before a more extensive technique can be used.

Wet cleaning is the next step that involves cleaning the residue with a detergent solution. The method is particularly useful if the residue is heavy or oily. It is employed to clean painted surfaces, metal and wood. As the method involves the use of a detergent solution, it might not be suitable for surfaces that can be damaged by liquids.

Active peroxide cleaning is yet another method that is used to clean acoustical ceilings and other porous surfaces. It is the excellent method if there is an excessive tar built-up on the surfaces. The Peroxide Active Ceiling cleaning uses a particular cleaning solution with an Ultimate Upholstery machine. The entire surface that needs to be cleaned is evenly wet with the solution. The method is excellent for highly porous material, although natural material such as wood should be protected from over spraying.

Getting Your Naples Clinic Up And Running After Water Damages

1/12/2018 (Permalink)

Our SERVPRO team can get your Naples clinic back up and running faster than you can say "Like it never even happened."

When Water Damage Strikes Your Clinic, SERVPRO Will Be There To Help

You can always expect a doctor’s office to be busy every day they are open. With appointments sometimes scheduled months in advance, your Naples office cannot afford an emergency situation that could require shutting your doors to the people who need you the most. Even with routine maintenance, the plumbing of your office building can sometimes rupture due to circumstances well out of your control.

When this happens, you can be dealing with substantial water damage to your Naples clinic. Especially if the line break occurs after regular operating hours, it could be a while before the problem gets discovered the following morning. With the equipment, records, and patients on their way, this is a mess that you need to have cleaned up quickly and correctly. Our professional SERVPRO team can be there quickly to adequately assess the damages and get to work on setting things right.

The first step in our overall restoration process is to locate the source of the damage and shut off the valve that is continuing to feed water to the broken pipe. While repairing this pipe is also a priority, shutting off the water ensures that the damages do not continue to get worse. Based on your input, our technicians focus on your areas of priority so that irreparable damage does not occur to sensitive records, electronics, or expensive equipment you might use in the office.

To extract the water, our SERVPRO professionals choose from a wide range of instruments. Depending on the severity of the water, submersible pumps could get used in conjunction with wet-vacs. Our technicians work to thoroughly dry the area, even inspecting using thermal imagery for further water damage within the walls and flooring that might get overlooked with the naked eye.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

Our ultimate goal is to mitigate your profit losses and rescheduling of appointments. To accomplish our commitment to restore the damage quickly, it is best to waste no time in calling SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island as soon as you recognize a water emergency. Our rapid responders can be reached anytime by calling (239) 302-5700.

Commercial Water Damage and Naples Area Bowling Alleys

11/10/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO is available 24/7/365 to restore your commercial property, no matter the scope or size.

SERVPRO Can Restore Your Naples Commercial Property From Water Damage "Like It Never Even Happened."

While cleanup from hurricane season continues across the area, Naples business owners often find that their cleanup efforts cannot remedy the situation every time. Many properties have extensive damages that require specialized technical expertise.

Whenever Naples business owners find that flooding left behind commercial water damage, SERVPRO can help. While many businesses have few different types of surfaces and materials within their doors, bowling alleys pose much more complicated environments than others. We take the development of skills and experience in our technicians seriously and provide internationally-recognized training.

Flooring, as one example, ranges from carpeting to tile or linoleum to hardwood lanes. Game rooms hold massive games and pool tables. Service areas and kitchens create other mini-environments. Cleaning of equipment must take place as quickly as possible. These include pool sticks, bowling shoes and balls, and also sale items. The professionals at SERVPRO quickly adapt their skills to each particular material, so the entire building receives the attention needed to make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Water damages almost every type of material used within a building, including concrete and brick. While these take a great deal longer to show signs of damage compared to other materials, they should also receive drying treatments. Doing so is beneficial because they release moisture back into the environment over a more extended period and can create future problems.

Our drying equipment is quite extensive and includes large air movers, heaters for many different purposes, desiccant machines, and pumps. Using these as the job requires saves our customers time and money. Done right the first time, our water damage restoration services help business owners reopen, so they stay open and engaged in business.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island is staffed by the professionals needed for complex jobs such as bowling alleys and other major entertainment venues. Call our local number when your business suffers from commercial water damage at (239) 302-5700. Getting you started toward recovery after any disaster starts with one call.

Our quick action can potentially save your printing equipment from being a total loss. Contact our staff and let us remediate the water damage.

Our Top Priority is to Dry Out Your Business in Order to Prevent Secondary Damages From Setting In

Water damage has an unmatched ability to bring your business to a standstill. Even a small leak can shut you down for a few days during the cleanup operation. Thankfully SERVPRO is available to get things cleaned up, dried off, and ready to resume business quickly – that is why We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
Safety is of paramount importance during commercial water damage remediation in your Marco Island print shop. There are many safety considerations, including structural damage, slip and fall hazards, and electronic equipment safety. We train our technicians in all aspects of site security in line with IICRC-certification and EPA recommendations, so you can rest assured that every step is carried out with safety in mind.
Electronic security is often a particular concern for print shops due to equipment such as printers, copiers, and laptops. Our teams use floor standing, and submersible pumps to extract as much water from the floor as possible. We unplug all electronic items and remove trip breakers, fuses and backup batteries before carefully wiping water from all electronics. We also liaise with specialist electronic vendors on your behalf to discuss the drying situation and offer the best chance of restoring equipment.
Our IICRC-certified staff is aware of all potential hazards in a wet environment. We check the structure of your print shop and ensure it is sound, and we look out for slip and fall hazards such as loose wires or tack strip. We post warning signs accordingly, so anyone nearby knows what is happening.
Another risk in water damage situations is potential mold growth. We assess the potential for mold growth and set up a drying regime as soon as we can because we know that the faster we get your print shop dried out, the less chance there is for the fungus to take hold. Our drying service includes working under carpets and inside walls to ensure there are no hidden corners of damp where mold can grow, or structural damage can continue unnoticed.
We assess the water that has entered your property to determine if the damage is from white, gray, or black water and take appropriate precautions depending upon the type of water that is present. We supply our staff with the full range of appropriate personal protective equipment for every situation.
Do not let water close your business down. Call SERVPRO of Naples / Marco Island at (239) 302-5700 today for help.
