Pest Control

We share this world with a num­ber of oth­er crea­tures. Some of these beings are com­plete­ly harm­less to us, but oth­ers can become a seri­ous prob­lem. Species in this lat­ter cat­e­go­ry are known as pests, and they include a range of rodents, birds, gas­tropods, insects, plants, and more. If you own or man­age a prop­er­ty, it’s impor­tant to take pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures against pest infes­ta­tions and to remove pests when­ev­er they show up. Com­mer­cial clean­ing plays a big role in this effort, but more severe actions may be required as well. The Budd Group’s pest con­trol ser­vices help keep pests away from the grounds and inte­ri­ors of facil­i­ties to keep them safe, san­i­tary, and welcoming.

Why Pest Con­trol is So Important

Pests range from mere­ly annoy­ing to active­ly dan­ger­ous. That said, they should all be con­trolled or elim­i­nat­ed regard­less of threat lev­el, for a num­ber of rea­sons. First, even rel­a­tive­ly benign pests can harm a business’s rep­u­ta­tion, turn away cus­tomers, and deval­ue its prop­er­ty. Sec­ond, a small infes­ta­tion of pests can lead to a larg­er infes­ta­tion of more threat­en­ing actors. Cer­tain insects, for instance, are per­fect prey for larg­er insects and rodents. Addi­tion­al­ly, cer­tain weeds and plant species can harm a busi­ness’ bot­tom line by ruin­ing their agri­cul­tur­al prod­ucts. And final­ly, many pests, espe­cial­ly rodents, can car­ry a num­ber of dis­eases dan­ger­ous to humans. If left unchecked, these pests can put every­one inside or near the facil­i­ty at risk for illness.

What Pest Con­trol Entails

There are a num­ber of ways to con­trol and remove pests from the premis­es. The Budd Group’s pest con­trol ser­vices are all-encom­pass­ing, focused on both pre­ven­tion and elim­i­na­tion. Reg­u­lar build­ing main­te­nance and clean­ing help pre­vent infes­ta­tions by remov­ing food scraps, dirt, and oth­er bac­te­ria from sur­faces. Prop­er trash and debris removal is also a nec­es­sary com­po­nent of pest con­trol, as insects and rodents often seek food and shel­ter inside and near waste bins. Our land­scap­ing ser­vices will kill weeds using envi­ron­men­tal­ly-friend­ly prod­ucts that won’t harm your peo­ple or oth­er plants. We will also use meth­ods to tar­get spe­cif­ic pests if a facil­i­ty is under siege by par­tic­u­lar species. These may include the use of pheromones, bait, traps, insu­la­tion, poi­sons that are non-tox­ic to humans, ster­il­iza­tion, and more.

A facil­i­ty might be more sus­cep­ti­ble to cer­tain types of pests depend­ing on their oper­a­tions and loca­tion. There­fore, each facil­i­ty will require dif­fer­ent degrees and types of pest con­trol. Com­mer­cial kitchen clean­ing is a prime exam­ple, as restau­rants and food man­u­fac­tur­ing plants, demand sig­nif­i­cant pest con­trol solu­tions to ensure their prod­ucts are safe for con­sump­tion. No mat­ter your facility’s needs and chal­lenges, The Budd Group will do every­thing pos­si­ble to keep pests away.

Dane Slaughter, Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District

I have worked with The Budd Group since 2011, and I have been very pleased and impressed with their staff, account managers, and regional support they provide. They have been very prompt to respond if there is an issue with the janitorial services. They provide an exceptional service and understand the importance of greeting our passengers and guests to allow them to have a wonderful experience when traveling. I view their service as a partnership and count on them daily to deliver exceptional quality to our tenants, passengers, staff, and business partners.

Guy Harley, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The Budd Group provides exceptional custodial services for our campus. We are grateful for their service to our patients, families, visitors, staff and faculty for over 40 years. The Budd Group is very responsive to our requests and needs, and we truly believe in their loyalty and commitment to our success.

Billy D. Smith, Kershaw County School District

I personally have had the best experience and relationship with The Budd Group. From their owner all the way to their day porters, they take great pride in representing the company name, and doing the best job they can. During these unprecedented pandemic times The Budd Group has been flexible and responsive to the changing needs our district has had in every way. With every firm that we have used there have been issues, but no firm has ever been as responsive, and as quick to fix whatever the issue may be as The Budd Group!

Nick Mincey, Orange County Schools

The Budd Group has gone above and beyond in providing custodial services to our district. Following a lengthy RFP process, we as a committee selected them to help our district achieve a new and rejuvenating approach to campus cleaning and facility care. We asked them to take on a difficult task of staffing, and preparing schools for the start of our school year with only 6 weeks of transition time. We all knew it would be difficult at best. However, with the help of their Human Resources department and successful hiring strategies, we were up and running by the time our Staff members began to enter the campuses for the school year.

Blaise Winch, Capsugel

The Budd Group has been providing services to Capsugel for over 6 years. The service provided has been excellent and professional. They perform duties in multiple locations including a manufacturing plant, distribution center, office area, machine shop and fitness center. They clean all of the following types of areas at those various locations: office, bathroom, cafeteria, fitness center, locker room, shipping/receiving and CGMP production areas. As it relates to CGMP experience, they also created a sanitation program for the cGMP areas, maintain and created their own operating instructions, maintain document control and follow all cGMP guidelines for hygiene and documentation.

Susan A. Maddux, Presbyterian College

The Budd Group has become a true partner with Presbyterian College. They have taken the time to fully understand our mission and become a true part of the Blue Hose family. The housekeeping staff often pull off miracles when given very little time to clean a space on campus between events. They work long hours and respond 24/7 to emergencies on campus. The landscaping team has transformed the grounds of the campus such that the college regularly gets positive feedback from those who visit the campus. Before outsourcing to The Budd Group, the college performed these services in house. We have seen significant improvement in both housekeeping and grounds since The Budd Group took over.
