The prominence and sanctity of these religious buildings make cleanliness especially important.

Specific Cleaning Requirements for Religious Institutions
Churches and other religious buildings need janitorial services like any other commercial building. However, these institutions often require a more nuanced approach to maintenance for various reasons. The Budd Group pays close attention to the specific needs of its clients and will act accordingly.
Some religious buildings are small, perhaps a single room, while others can be quite large and multi-purpose. There may be just one or two restrooms in one synagogue, but several large restrooms in another. Janitorial services for these buildings should be optimized for the specific size and shape of the space.
Additionally, different religious institutions operate under varying schedules. Depending on the religion(s) practiced, the denomination, or special events, a building might be open a few days a week during certain hours or open to the public 24/7. The Budd Group’s building cleaning services will respect these hours of operation and schedule appropriately.
Of course, some religions with more orthodox beliefs might have additional requirements when it comes to the types of chemicals, water, or other materials that can be used. Janitorial services for religious institutions must also respect these practices and abide by them to the highest degree possible.
Religious Building Maintenance: Attention to Sanitation
Janitorial services should always focus on proper sanitation practices. In buildings used for religious purposes, several people come into contact with one another on a regular basis. Some religions encourage communal acts such as handshaking, hugging, or sharing food and drink. As a result, these spaces can become congregations for germs as well.
When it comes to building maintenance for churches, synagogues, and mosques, cleaning staff should frequently wipe down pews, tables, and other commonly touched surfaces. This will help keep the human congregation healthy, and the germ congregation at bay.
