About us

We cannot achieve our client relationship philosophy without honest, reliable, dedicated, and hardworking employees. We train our staff both ‘in-house’ and at professional schools nationwide. In fact, we are the very best in the cleaning and restoration industry because we provide our neighbors with exceptional service no matter where they are located in Kansas.

We realize that our services are only as good as the people that perform them, and have assembled an amazing team of professionals! As a company, we have received Value Added Service Training (VAST) to improve service to our customers. Our team members often attend industry-specific training, such as Strategies for Success (SFS). We’re also proud to have numerous certifications, memberships and awards. This training helps us to dramatically exceed our customer’s expectations. We want every one of our customers to be a cheerleader for Lamunyon Restoration!

He’d like to say to our clients: “We’re here to serve your needs and make life better through times of disaster.”
