Were you in the middle of a renovation project at your house when the COVID-19 lockdown struck – leaving you stranded at home, with no supplies or help to finish off the job? Welcome to 2020, where even though things may seem chaotic and unstable, the power of online shopping and YouTube mean that you can spend your new-found free time teaching yourself a fresh set of skills. Some cook, some drink wine and some focus on honing their home improvement skills – because being at home and having access to online tutorials as well the option to have materials and products delivered right to your doorstep for a contactless hand-off means there is no better time to get started.
Over the past few days, you might have noticed a statement we made circulate around the web and Facebook, about how we want to be “close with our clients, but remain at a safe distance.” The idea behind this is that while we want to provide you with on-site technical support, today’s newly-established safety conditions (COVID-19) simply won’t allow us to do so. However, thanks in a great part to smartphones and high-speed internet connected devices, we can work alongside you on your job-site and go step-by-step through the application process – without physically being there.
Let’s say you’re caulking up your shower cabin, you’ve seen the YouTube tutorial and ordered a cartridge of Sikaflex 11FC, but something still isn’t right – maybe the caulk isn’t drying fast enough or the sealant isn’t coming out evenly. With every online purchase you make with Protym you will receive a hotline number to one of our dedicated application specialists. By getting on the phone with them, they can troubleshoot any issue you might be having with your project. The hotline includes a WhatsApp number, which means that you can even make a video call if you wish, to show exactly what kind of issue you are trying to resolve. As with any project we tackle, the more information we have, the better our chances are of resolving it quickly, efficiently and safely together.
