Restoring Safety and Comfort at Orangewood Condominium

In November 2022, the residents of Orangewood Condominium in Port Charlotte faced a significant crisis. 

Heavy rainfall combined with unidentified roof damage led to a severe water intrusion event, affecting all 36 units spread across the condominium’s five buildings. 

Water seeped through the tiles, damaging ceilings and drywall, and posing a long-term risk of mold growth.

The immediate concern for residents was extensive water damage. However, the potential for mold growth posed a greater threat to their health and well-being as mold thrives in moist environments and can spread rapidly. We were notified and were able to promptly step in to manage the crisis. 

The first step was to conduct a thorough water mitigation process, drying out the units to prevent further damage and reduce mold growth. 

Specialized equipment was used to ensure that all moisture was effectively removed from the affected areas.

Once the units were dry, comprehensive mold testing was conducted by an external mold assessment company to assess the extent of mold contamination across the condominium.

The results varied: some units had visible mold, while others tested positive despite appearing unaffected. 

This variability highlighted the complexity of mold issues, which can thrive in hidden spaces.


For the units that tested positive for mold, we implemented a meticulous mold remediation process. This involved the removal of all affected materials, such as drywall and insulation, which could not be salvaged. To prevent the spread of mold spores during the remediation, containment areas were established. 

The process undertaken by us at Everpro Restoration not only addressed the immediate water and mold issues but also restored a sense of safety and security for the residents of Orangewood Condominium. 

This incident highlights the importance of proper building maintenance and quick intervention in water damage situations.

Thankfully, the residents of Orangewood were able to once again enjoy their homes without the looming threat of mold and water damage.
