New York Start-Up Company Uses Drones To Disinfect


SYRACUSE, New York (WBZ NewsRadio) — Syracuse-based start-up drone company EagleHawk had an idea born out of necessity.

"When a lot of the shutdowns started happening, we saw a lot of our regular business either get pushed out or delayed, or go away overnight," C.E.O. Patrick Walsh said.

The company realized they could provide a much needed service, sanitation, with an updated drones.

"We thought...how can we leverage our technology, our skillsets, to help in this pandemic. So we thought maybe we could do disinfection via drone," Walsh said.

They can efficiently scrub large spaces and venues completely through technology and business is booming for EagleHawk's sanitation services right now, according to Walsh.

"Our phone's been ringing off the hook," Walsh said. "We've been contacted by universities and colleges, corporate campuses, industrial complexes, NFL, NHL, Major League Baseball teams, Broadway theaters."

The cleaning solutions are EPA approved, according to Eagle Hawk.
