Quick Response Restoration in Round Lake is offering a free disinfecting service for all first responder vehicles used during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vince Laurenzo, Jr., CEO, said “given the nature of our business, we work with first responders quite a bit already … All first responders that want to bring their vehicle to our headquarters in Round Lake from 2-5 p.m. every day, we’re going to have our guys out there kind of like a carwash, but a disinfection carwash. We have them line up in a row, drive through, get out and we’ll spray down the cab and whatever else needs to be disinfected for the day,” said Laurenzo.
“We have a large property and the infrastructure for proper distancing to easily and efficiently do this,” said Laurenzo.
Disinfecting services are also available on a paid-for basis for customers who are not first responders.
The company recently received attention for providing pizza to over 240 employees at Glens Falls Hospital.
“We know how much hospital workers are getting inundated, and usually without proper protective equipment. We know it’s very stressful. We wanted to give something back to them, and make them feel a little better,” he said.
“Secondarily, we wanted to place orders at local pizza places and restaurants, as they’re all financially distraught right now.”
Quick Response Restoration is a family-owned, family-run fire company. Fire and mold remediation are their core business. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, they have extended cleaning and disinfecting services to all commercial buildings, including offices, schools and grocery stores.
Quick Response offers preventative or post-exposure disinfecting with electrostatic sprayers using green-based products.
“Our sprayers are state-of-the-art and cover anything in a room with a magnetic force field around objects. It leaves no wet residue on a room after you spray it. It’s clean, safe, quick and it’s not messy,” said Laurenzo.
The products used are EPA approved IRC benchmark product disinfectants.
