These are measures that The Budd Group’s cleaning and janitorial servi...

As we continue to monitor the spread, treatment, and systems changes during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, one question comes up again and again: is there anything we can do? Of course, no one can 100% guarantee that protective measures they’re taking will completely prevent coronavirus from spreading.  But for businesses that provide essential services and must stay open, microfiber cloths are an effective way to remove many pathogens (which may include some viruses, depending on...

More and more businesses are temporarily closing or imposing strict limits on services in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. But there are many businesses and industries that must maintain at least some operations to protect the public and prevent further economic downturn. If you’re still in business during this difficult time, building disinfection is paramount. Regular cleaning could save lives, and prevent further spread and proliferation of this dangerous virus throughout...

Healthcare facilities are designed to improve the lives and health of patients. That said, these facilities are, by their very nature, riddled with germs, some of which can be highly contagious. As such, nurses, doctors, and other staff members must do their best to steer clear of infections while still providing the best possible care for their patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare providers might be required to wash their hands up to 100 times ...

IAQ has the same impact on human health as does the outside environment. However, IAQ is typically two to five times more polluted, and in some dire cases 100+ times more polluted, than outdoor air. Schools have the added imperative to keep indoor air quality as pristine and healthy as possible because children, whose bodies are more susceptible to pollution for a number of reasons, spend the majority of their days inside them. This article will touch on the important steps we can help your sch...

Choosing the right janitorial provider for your business is no simple task. There are plenty of considerations that go into making such a decision, such as the scope of services you require, the provider’s hiring and training practices, their credentials and reputation, and more.

Here we’ll explore five major differences between local janitorial services and national pro...

If you turn on the news, you’re bound to hear countless claims of job losses and dying industries. While it’s true that the economy is always evolving and that automation and green initiatives have changed the working landscape, there is still a huge demand for quality janitorial services, and it looks to stay that way in Nashville, Tennessee and beyond. In order to fill these jobs, our society must battle against the lingering stigma of “dirty jobs” and/or “unskilled labor” as a who...

Many independent schools have wellness policies in place, or have begun the process of implementing one. In a 2015 NAIS survey, 21 percent of independent schools that responded reported that they had a health or well-being policy. Wellness is an integral piece of the health and prevention puzzle, but schools who only address student wellness miss an incredible opportunity to keep teachers and staff healthy, save money, reduce teacher burnout and improve student outcomes. Wellness is the ...
