The company said services will be provided by well-trained and equipped professionals permitted by local authorities. The service partners will be wearing a full-body protective suit to ensure the safety of customers as well as their own.
Abhiraj Bhal, Co-founder, Urban Company, said, âDisinfection services are the need of the hour. We have been getting a lot of requests from our customers and are happy to launch these services in our endeavour to keep them safe. Further, we felt it was necessary to include commercial spaces to provide people with a safe and healthy environment.â
For disinfection service, the company will use Virex 256 chemical, which is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, to kill the coronavirus. The service will also ensure sanitisation of high-touch points such as doors, handles, switchboards, and taps. For residential spaces, the service is available at Rs 1,700 onwards and its duration may vary from one to two hours, depending on the size of the house. For commercial spaces, the price depends on the size of the facility.Â
