Keeping spaces safely disinfected has never been so important. London-based GoFogIt continues to enable peace of mind as patrons and businesses alike experience the uncertainty that accompanies rising COVID-19 cases.
It’s this mentality that led Duncan Harwood Custom Homes, a part of the Kevlar Development Group in Dorchester to introduce the Recovery & Rebuilding the Region Design Challenge recipient’s disinfectant fogging for all of their current homes, open houses and closings for the foreseeable future.
Kevlar Development Group will harness the benefits and convenience of fogging on their active development sites between trades, and also oﬀer it to tenants as an additional layer of protection within their businesses during the pandemic. They also continue to increase internal precautions to maintain staff safety, including fogging their shop, company trucks and equipment.
“Our goal is to keep businesses open and to make it easier for people to know how to do that in a safe, eﬃcient and eﬀective way. For a developer like Kevlar to disinfect manually between every open house, it would take them hours, this way the house can be ready for the next showing in only an hour, and know they are keeping people safe at the same time,” explains Melissa Maloney, Vice President of Operations at GoFogIt.
The company was started in March of 2020 to help local businesses disinfect spaces through environmentally-friendly techniques and eﬀective solutions. The venture has since grown outside of Southwestern Ontario to serve cross-Canada and through the United States.
“When we compare common cleaning products that have a reputation to be eﬀective, they are often harsh and even harmful to not only surfaces, but the people using them. We’ve become obsessed with oﬀering an environmentally-friendly alternative, which has the added beneﬁt of being safer and healthier for the front line workers that continue to keep these businesses open.”
