North Captiva Island, Florida was a quiet tropical Island paradise prior to the devastating effects of two hurricane hits only weeks apart. Over two months after the last hurricane, power was still not restored to the Island. Hurricane related water damage and the hot, humid tropical environment created unhealthy conditions in a number of homes. A new process that kills mold, bacteria and viral hazards without chemicals is being used to disinfect these homes. The process utilizes clean, dry, odorless heat to disinfect buildings in much the same way heat is used to pasteurize milk and to kill bacteria in wine.
SFCS Environmental, Inc., a Fort Lauderdale, Florida based mold remediation Contractor is responsible for bringing this exciting new technology to Florida. The process, ThermaPureHeatÂ won the Best New Product in the nation by The Society of Professional Engineers. Over 20,000 projects have been completed with this process including the Capitol Building in Sacramento and numerous schools throughout California. Jerry Gillman, president of SFCS Environmental stated,Â The ThermaPureHeatÂ process has been effectively used in California with great success, however the process is relatively unknown in Florida.
Florida, with its high humidity levels is the ideal environment for mold related issues. With traditional mold remediation methods, the cost for remediation of a 2000 square foot structure averages over $40,000. If that isnÂt bad enough, occupants can be displaced for weeks or even months while traditional methods are completed. Our process can be completed in a day for a fraction of the cost for most structures.Â
The Company hopes to interest Florida Public School Boards in the Technology. Gillman stated,Â Mold in Schools is costing Florida Taxpayers millions of dollars. Add in the cost of closing Schools and displacing students, liability lawsuits, workers compensation claims and concerns over student health makes this technology a safe and cost effective tool in the fight against mold related health issues.Â
