Delhi-NCR | 15th April 2020: Further supporting the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Droom, India’s largest and pioneering online automobile transactional marketplace, has expanded the purview of its Germ-Shield service to facilities including hospitals, offices, school, day care residential complex, retail spaces, elevators, and ATMs. Earlier used only for deep sanitization of automobiles, Droom is now ramping up its tech-driven service to protect sensitive areas of physical facilities.
Germ-shield, a technology launched under Droom Health, is an antimicrobial surface protection shield. Proven to be effective against SARS and other droplet-based viruses for up to 3 months, it guards surfaces against harmful microbes by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, yeast, mold, and mildew. The technology polymerizes (bonds) to any surface resulting in a strong, durable, invisible and effective shield with a 99.99% microbial reduction rate.
As part of the initiative, Droom’s Germ-Shield team will primarily conduct a Digital Swab test to check the contamination level of the facility. Based on the germ-risk threat perception, these areas will be divided into red ‘high risk’, orange ‘medium risk’, yellow ‘low risk’ and green ‘no risk’ zones. While the ‘high risk’ and ‘medium risk’ zones will be treated with the Germ-Shield technology, other low-risk areas will also be thoroughly sanitized using other effective cleaning solutions.
Commenting on the initiative, Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder & CEO, Droom said, “At Droom, we are striving to create tech and data driven solutions that can contain the spread of COVID-19 and help the country safely survive this pandemic. In line with this vision, we have expanded the reach of our Germ-Shield technology beyond the Automobile category. It is an effective solution to keep sensitive physical spaces deeply sanitized, clean and disinfected, thus ensuring utmost hygiene and protection against the fast-growing contagion.”
Germ Shield costing would be as follows:
· Schools, hospitals – ranging from INR 8 to INR 15 per square feet area.
· Elevators – INR 799 for small, INR 999 for medium and INR 1499 for large elevators.
· ATM – INR 1499.
Droom has aleady delivered Germ Shield for facility for elevators, residential complexes, pharmacies and health care providers in NCR.
Beyond this Droom is offering Bi-annual and Annual subscriptions also thus enabling users to choose according to their needs. Currently, Germ Shield is available in NCR with the plan to expand into all meteors in near future.
