These guys are by far the BEST in the area. I called them when I discovered my basement was full of water and they were at my house in Slingerlands in 35 minutes FLAT. Professional, courteous, knew what to do and did it quickly. After my basement was dried there were no visible signs of mold growth. They did an excellent job. I don’t think I’ve ever had a service call show up that quickly. I would highly recommend.
Literally life saving. After our home was infiltrated with toxic silica dust from a nearby construction project, MacFawn saved us. We discovered the mess after 7pm on a Friday. That night they reached out to cleaners, we had an on site quote Saturday and by sundown Sunday, our home was both clean and safe. Within a week the entire inside and outside were spotless after a window cleaning specialist came a few days after the interior clean up. The crews… [Keep Reading]
We were very happy with the work performed by MacFawn. The project manager was a huge help in the beginning, giving us information and assessing the issue. Then, the technician who performed the actual work was really friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. I could tell he actually cared about making sure this was all done the right way.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful MacFawn is. I had significant mold in my basement from a water runoff problem. CJ came very quickly, did a walk through, located the problem and told me step by step what could be done.

Great job. We had extensive insulation in the attic covered with thick dust from a very old roof replacement. Was impressed with the initial review of the problem and skill and professionalism of the staff. Also impressed with the respirators and PPE worn. The staff really took a lot of time to protect all our walls, furniture, and floors while carrying the many piles of very dusty insulation out of the home. Would definitely use this company again.
CJ was amazing in communicating with me on what it is that your company does and walking me through the entire process. Wonderful service, thank you!
