what to do when a serviceman needs to come to repair that AC or fan of yours? Well, spray again !!
Before the man enters, ask him to take his shoes outside, spray the disinfectant on his clothes and skin ( HYDRUS is EU Certified Skin , hair and clothes safe disinfectant, proven to work againts Corona Virus) , if he is not wearing a mask ( Please do not let him enter ) - its always great to keep 2-3 surgical masks handy in such situation to give to them...
