Being so close to the Gulf Coast, Vineyards and the Greater Naples area has always contended with higher-than-normal humidity levels versus the rest of the country. Most consider it a tradeoff for the otherwise favorable weather conditions. However, intense storms can happen, damaging homes and businesses such as Fountainhead or the Ave Maria School of Law. Any lingering moisture in these situations can ultimately lead to the development of mold and microbial threats.
Remediation Solutions for Vineyards Homes
From your property's crawl space to an unused attic, areas that you do not see often can develop mold threats without your knowledge. In either of these areas, the organism would have to spread a considerable distance to begin impacting the direct living spaces. To prevent unnecessary health effects or the degradation of exposed structural elements, remediation is required. We have experienced technicians extensively trained to offer a wide range of colony removal services like controlled demolition, antimicrobial abrasive cleaning, or mold inhibitors.
Removing Lingering Odors from your Vineyards Property
Among the most considerable threats to play home after mold damage occurs is a lingering odor. The harsh musty scent emitted by active mold colonization can be overwhelming for properties and make it challenging for families to continue living in the home until deodorization occurs. There are multiple avenues to neutralize harsh smells, including:
- Thermal fogging
- Hydroxyl generators
- Ozone machines
- Air scrubbers
- Odor counteractant beads/granules

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (239) 352-8300
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
