Monthly Preventative Maintenance Work Underway at Edison Ford

FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 13, 2016) -- Cyclical preventative maintenance work at Edison & Ford Winter Estates is underway on the buildings along Larchmont Avenue. This maintenance includes pest inspection and regular preventative measures. These buildings are not Edison or Ford historic structures and are used for offices and storage space. The maintenance work will not affect the winter estate homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford and the estates will remain open during the work. 

Orkin Pest Control in Fort Myers is providing the pest control services. For more information, call 239-334-7419 or visit
