Your Belongings and Mold Damage

Why Your Kansas City Mold Damaged Belongings Are Important to Us

The entire family of SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa lives and works in the greater Kansas City area. We are one with our communities and understand the stress suffered by our neighbors when a mold infestation has damaged or destroyed personal possessions.

The Contents of a House are What Make it a Home

Our team can scrape off mold colonies and use air scrubbers to keep the air clear of mold spores and particulates during the cleanup and any necessary demolition. But let's preserve the essence of contents and possessions by relocating them during the remediation process.

• Keepsakes, intrinsic value not a factor, only the customers' sensitivities toward these cherished items
• Heirlooms and expensive pieces of art--moved out of harm's way, perhaps even to a curator for cleaning and safekeeping
• Home libraries containing books handed-down through generations, documents highlighting births, marriages, and more
• Photos and Memorabilia of family, friends, and events

We make this promise to our fellow Kansas City residents--we always strive to preserve the things that mean the most to your during any mold remediation service that our SERVPRO team executes on your behalf.

Our facility can transport and store in a climate-controlled environment your content. We can clean and disinfect items, piece by piece as needed with our advanced equipment and specially formulated cleaning and deodorizing.

Contents Restoration

SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley specializes in restoring contents damaged by fire, water, or mold. Our expertise and “restore” versus “replace” mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can’t be replaced. We pretest your contents to determine what items can be restored back to their condition before the water and mold damage. We utilize several methods of cleaning your contents, including:

  •  Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning.
  •  Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues.
  •  Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning.
  •  Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned.
  •  Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned. 
  •  Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product.


If your home requires extensive restoration or cleaning, SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa and SERVPRO of Blue Valley can conduct an organized, efficient move-out of the affected area. A move-out will provide several benefits, including:

  •  A quicker remodeling process
  •  Protecting items from potential damage
  •  Protecting contents from further on-site damage

When the restoration is completed, we will work with you to coordinate the move-in according to your needs. The services offered upon move-in may depend on your insurance coverage.

Electronic Cleanup

Water-damaged electronics can present a serious hazard. Do not attempt to turn on or operate any electrical device that you suspect has been damaged by water. We will coordinate the restoration of your electronics, including:

  •  Television sets 
  •  DVD players

  •  And more

The key to restoring electronics is taking prompt action to prevent further damage. We start by cleaning the exterior of electronic devices to help stop further corrosion and damage. Electronics will be cleaned and inspected by a qualified electronics technician.
