Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Over the past three decades, MacFawn Fire and Flood Restoration has
worked closely with every major fire department in the Capital Region.
When the risk of fire has been eliminated by the fire department, the
property is released to the homeowner and work can begin immediately.
Cleaning up a fire site involves clearing ash & debris and salvaging
what can be saved. In most cases the cleaning and restoration process
reveals further water damage from extinguishing the fire, which leads to
a drying process and property restoration that involves repair of damaged
structure and content.
After survey and analysis to determine the appropriate cleaning and
restoration services, we clean and deodorize every area including:
carpets, drapes, upholstered furniture and contents. Limited smoke
damage is most often removed quickly on location. In most cases, fire
is extinguished with water, leading to a potential host of new problems.
MacFawn Fire and Flood Restoration provides board up services, smoke and
water damage restoration, contents removal & cleaning and restoration of
the property. Our professionals understand the personal nature of restoring
a home or business and work hard to return items to their original place
and condition while ensuring continuity of our customers’ lives and businesses.

What To Do If Your Property Has Been Damaged By A Fire
- Contact your insurance company and report the damage as soon as possible. Most insurance companies have help hotlines to report incidents.
- Do not wade through flood-water if the electricity is still on or there is a chance that the water is contaminated.
- Ventilate the house as much as possible by opening windows and doors.
- Remove saturated materials from the house to reduce the drying time of the building and inventory.
- Place aluminum foil, wood blocks or saucers between furniture and floor coverings (especially wet carpets that cannot be removed). This prevents the water from being absorbed by the furniture, causing further damage.
- Take inventory of the damaged areas to determine which items are salvageable and which need replacing. This will help the property damage specialists quickly start the restoration process once they arrive at the site.
