SARATOGA SPRINGS — As first responders rush into homes and areas they have no idea could contain COVID-19, Kennedy Property Management (KPM) Restoration is disinfecting firehouses to help keep them safe. 

Each week, owner James Kennedy works with three different crews to head out to disinfect local firehouses at no cost. Kennedy said the company is covering all of Saratoga, Mechanicville, Ballston-Spa, North Greenfield, Glens Falls, Corinth and Schuylerville.

“We’re doing as much as we can to give back to the community. We wanted to give back to our community and our small little town,” Kennedy said. 

KPM uses a fogging product in addition to hospital grade sanitizing and disinfectant. Kennedy said as soon as the crew arrives at the firehouse, they first wipe everything down. They then use a fogging disinfection system, which distributes aerosol disinfection using a fogging machine. The crew then finishes by wiping everything down again. 

“Every week we’re going to do that for them for a little bit,” Kennedy said. 

Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, Kennedy said he received a shipment worth $75,000 of materials they are now using for firehouses as well as reported COVID-19 cases they are called to clean. 

Kennedy said the company’s main focus is water restoration and mold remediation, but said it felt good to give back to the community in this way.

“It feels good that I’m giving back,” Kennedy said.
