Shawnee, KS Mold Damage Remediation
The Kansas River significantly impacts environmental conditions for Johnson County and Shawnee. Higher humidity and the possibilities of storm damage and flooding create ideal conditions for mold and microbial growth. Whether residential properties or commercial structures like the Shawnee Crossings Retail Center and Westbrooke Village, we can help.
Can Mold Inspections Help Remediation Be More Efficient?
Upon arrival, inspecting a property can give our SERVPRO team knowledge of the house conditions and the appropriate response. This initial job scoping phase can also show where reconstruction, demolition, content relocation, and cleaning are needed.
Are Remediation Options the Same for All Shawnee Residences
Because remediation processes are not the same for every residence, choosing the appropriate mold removal approach is important. We have many variables that play a part in determining the most cost-efficient and effective remediation strategy. In addition to general remediation, our experienced professionals can also help with:
- Damage repairs
- Odor removal
- Attic mold removal
- Controlled demolition
Are Repairs Needed After Shawnee Residential Mold Damage?
One of the underappreciated aspects of mold remediation and restoration is the repairs and reconstruction often needed to complete this process thoroughly. While others might ask home and business owners to pursue contractors to finish this work, we offer a general contractor license to complete build-back services and repairs your home might need.

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 - (913) 782-4693
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
To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Shawnee, KS home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems 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
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are 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.
