Waterproofing the Dr. Fixit Way

As the lockdown enforced to combat the COVID-19 pandemic eases, monsoon is set to enter the country. While it will bring general relief, the ensuing rains could well worsen the leakage issues faced by consumers in their houses and cause damage to structures. This will impact the large numbers of people living in buildings and homes that need serious preventive waterproofing before the rains arrive. It is expected that 6-8 % of buildings and structures may need critical pre-monsoon repairs. The waterproofing contractors play a crucial role in ensuring the structural integrity of buildings and depend upon the pre-monsoon work for a big part of their earnings.

Waterproofing the Dr. Fixit Way

However, consumers have heightened health and safety concerns this year and may be wary of workers entering their homes. It is necessary to address these concerns as it may lead to reduced repair and waterproofing work and impacting incomes of the waterproofing community.

Keeping this in mind, we have rolled out multiple initiatives which will safeguard the livelihood of thousands of waterproofing contractors and benefit consumers who urgently need waterproofing of their homes. The program has been rolled out across 10 cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Indore, Ahmedabad, Surat, Kolkata and Nagpur, and addresses two objectives.

Waterproofing contractors are an extremely important spoke in our ecosystem as they help protect the integrity of buildings and homes. This initiative will equip them to assure customers of complete safety and to do their critical waterproofing jobs efficiently without losing out on the key business period

The first is to train and certify contractors on all safety aspects that they and their workers need to adopt while conducting site operations. Our full-fledged program imparts training and information about all precautions as per the guidelines of MHA and WHO. At the end of the course, participants take a detailed exam, with successful participants being duly certified. The training, conducted over video conferencing, has been helping contractors allay the fears of potential customers and enhance their prospects of finding fresh work. Moreover, Dr Fixit has complemented the training program with an audio visual that guides users on how to handle site work during the pandemic.

The second objective is to provide technical training to contractors /users on advanced waterproofing techniques so that they can be equipped to complete all jobs faster, with fewer workers, and as per stringent quality standards.

To this end, the Dr Fixit teams have been providing technical training on advanced waterproofing techniques, including the use of mechanized tools and devices that would help them speedily complete and deliver their jobs to the best quality. Dr Fixit has partnered with multiple companies that manufactures these mechanization equipments and has been training its users on these machines.

For the mental peace of their hardworking and safety-trained contractors and their teams, Dr Fixit has stepped up to also provide them with free COVID insurance cover.
