Naples is most well known to visitors for its wealth of resorts and recreation options, including the Naples Botanical Garden on Bayshore Drive. These gardens are located on a 100-acre natural reserve. Guided tours of the grounds are offered from November through April each year.
For visitors and locals who are in the mood to enjoy coastal waters, the Naples Pier extends hundreds of feet into the Gulf of Mexico with a clear, unobstructed view of the horizon, which is perfect for watching the sunrise or sunset. The pier can be found along 12th Avenue. Fishing opportunities abound along the dock, as the waters contain a variety of game fish species.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is a natural marvel with over 10,000 acres to explore. While the sanctuary is about an hour away from the city proper, it is one of the best-preserved natural wonders along the Paradise Coast. Flora and fauna enthusiasts alike have a wealth of opportunities for photography, birdwatching, plein air painting, and many other hobbies.
The History of Naples, Florida
While Naples was initially developed in the 1880s for a winter resort evocative of its Italian namesake, the area’s history starts with indigenous Americans settling the land as far back as 10,000 years ago, with the most notable tribal presence being the Calusa people, whose lands were purported to extend from Tampa Bay to Lake Okeechobee.
Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who would later become the first governor of Puerto Rico, came across this coastal territory in the early 16th century. After an extensive conflict, much of the Calusa territory was lost.
In the 18th century, the Seminole tribes, which included Creek Indians, refugees of various backgrounds, and escaped African slaves, settled in the region. However, this settlement led to many conflicts and a long-running standoff with European settlers that eventually led the Seminole people to move into the Everglades. Big Cypress Swamp proved to be another reliable refuge for the Seminole.
The southwestern coast of Florida would not see new settlement efforts for almost another century. After the American Civil War, farmers moved south to establish themselves on new land as pioneers.
These early settlers’ livelihoods depended on the following:
• Fishing, hunting, and trapping
• Trading otter furs, exotic bird plumes, and alligator hides
• Farming and making charcoal
• Digging for clams
Mere decades later, the Naples Town Improvement Company formally established the resort town as a getaway for sportsmen, particularly those from up north. This effort began with investment and exploration efforts spearheaded by Democratic Kentucky Senator General John S. Williams and Walter Haldeman. Later, in the 1920s, Collier County was created, with much of the local wealth generated by the efforts of Tennessee millionaire Barron Gift Collier.
Hospitality in Naples
Naples got its start as a hotel and resort town and still has plenty to offer in hospitality and recreation to this day. Resorts in and near this portion of the Paradise Coast include:
• The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club
• Bellasera Resort
• Charter Club Resort of Naples Bay by Diamond Resorts
• Edgewater Beach Hotel
• The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort
In observation of current public safety measures, Naples’ resorts have implemented such measures as installing hand sanitizing stations, frequent sanitation with particular attention paid to high traffic areas and touchpoints, and mandatory face masks for staff. Like the Noble House LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort, some resorts have additional safety measures like the marking of social distancing guidelines in public areas for ease of adherence.
Contactless check-in and check-out are other safety features that allow guests to enjoy their stay as safe as possible. High-temperature washes kill bacteria in tandem with EPA-registered sanitizers. Some resorts implement a 24-hour minimum vacancy period between reservations to maximize safety during and after sanitation. Employees also undergo regular temperature checks and provide individually-wrapped toiletries for guest rooms.
Can SERVPRO’s Cleanup Methods Curb Water Damage Odors?
Water damage and odors go hand in hand in many cases. Worse still, the odors and staining characteristic of water damage can indicate mold growth that can quickly become a safety concern. SERVPRO’s empirical cleanup and measuring processes are crucial to performing water restoration for Naples businesses.
• SERVPRO’s moisture measurement tools include imaging technologies that can see inside and behind structures to detect moisture and sensors precisely calibrated for affected surfaces
• Accurate and comprehensive calculation of humidity and drying goals ensures that cleanup and restoration is performed to code
• Water extraction accelerates the drying process significantly and is hundreds of times faster than relying solely on air movers and dehumidifiers
• EPA-registered, OSHA-approved biocides, many of which are proprietary SERVPRO cleaners, can cut through odors and return a commercial facility to its preloss state
• Odor control technicians (OCTs) can use a variety of methods to address odors, including directly injecting affected carpeting and ultra-low volume (ULV) fogging for large spaces affected by water damage
SERVPRO OCTs receive extensive training and certification in Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards and guidelines to ensure that commercial facility odor control is performed to a consistently high standard with industrial-grade tools. 24/7 service and fast response times ensure that businesses can be returned to a preloss condition last at night, on weekends, and during holidays.
SERVPRO of East Naples provides commercial cleanup that is Faster to Any Size Disaster. Business owners in need can call (239) 352-8300 for IICRC-certified mitigation and restoration services.
