As with any mate­r­i­al, con­crete will expand and con­tract as the tem­per­a­ture ris­es and falls. The length of the move­ment depends upon the sever­i­ty of tem­per­a­ture change and the coef­fi­cient of ther­mal expan­sion of the con­crete. The coef­fi­cient of ther­mal expan­sion of con­crete is influ­enced large­ly by the coef­fi­cient of ther­mal expan­sion of the aggre­gates, since the aggre­gate occu­pies 70 – 80% of the vol­ume of the con­crete. This means that if the room in which you’re lay­ing down con­crete in your ware­house or com­mer­cial facil­i­ty isn’t cli­mate-con­trolled with prop­er ven­ti­la­tion to avoid mois­ture issues, there will be con­se­quences with mold and mildew growth, the cement’s struc­tur­al integri­ty, and the aggre­gates in the cement, which affect compaction. 

At The Budd Group, we under­stand the sever­i­ty of these issues as well as the impor­tance of prop­er con­crete instal­la­tion and main­te­nance. With the use of Poly­gon machines in addi­tion to our expe­ri­enced team, we will pro­vide new floor­ing with sus­tain­able longevity. 

How Will The Budd Group Dif­fer­ence Work for My Business

The use of Poly­gon machines makes sure the room is tem­per­a­ture-con­trolled, prop­er­ly ven­ti­lat­ed, offers ade­quate drainage, con­trols leaks, main­tains water under the con­crete slab, and more upon appli­ca­tion and cur­ing. This makes a huge dif­fer­ence in the out­come of your floor­ing for years to come. 

When com­pres­sive strengths are low­ered, the seg­re­ga­tion of the con­crete mix under cer­tain con­di­tions results in vari­able qual­i­ty through­out the con­crete mass. Unpre­dictable qual­i­ty is unac­cept­able, espe­cial­ly when it comes to the safe­ty and effi­cien­cy of your team and business. 

How Mois­ture Mit­i­ga­tion Sys­tems Affect My Building

Water is often a destruc­tive force in the con­crete appli­ca­tion if used exces­sive­ly. If the amount of water in the con­crete isn’t mon­i­tored, there can be end­less issues with the out­come of your flooring. 

These issues can include:

  • Cracks — Too much moisture/​water will cause your con­crete to have low­er ten­sile strength and a ten­den­cy toward high shrink­age and sub­se­quent crack­ing. This is espe­cial­ly appar­ent in build­ings locat­ed in areas that have cold and hot climates.

  • Leaks — Once the cracks start in the con­crete, more and more water is able to enter over time. This can dis­rupt the build­ing as a whole if not remedied. 

  • Poor spac­ing between con­crete slabs or greater spac­ing between aggre­gates in cement — This affects com­paction of the slabs, which weak­ens the integri­ty of the floor­ing itself. Espe­cial­ly with heavy equip­ment and high-traf­fic ware­house floors, this is imme­di­ate­ly detrimental.

How Con­crete Tem­per­a­ture Con­trol Meth­ods Affect Your Building

A con­crete struc­ture is sub­ject­ed to high tem­per­a­tures, and it will fail in many dif­fer­ent ways if the tem­per­a­ture isn’t controlled.

These fail­ures may include:

  • Poor col­or­ing sur­face appear­ance of the con­crete: This can make your facil­i­ty floor­ing look unkempt, unpro­fes­sion­al, and dirty, even when it’s not.

  • Lack of com­pres­sive strength — This will hurt the integri­ty of the floor­ing, caus­ing cracks and leaks from equip­ment and dai­ly wear and tear. 

  • Reduced elas­tic­i­ty and con­crete den­si­ty — Your floor­ing will strug­gle to keep up with the expan­sion and con­trac­tion rit­u­als of the sea­sons, mak­ing it weak­er and forced to crack.

How Prop­er Con­crete Instal­la­tion Ser­vices Reduce Micro­bial and Struc­tur­al Integri­ty Issues

With­out cracks, leaks, and oth­er struc­tur­al integri­ty issues in your floor­ing, you can bet­ter ensure a cohe­sive floor with the prop­er main­te­nance and instal­la­tion tech­niques. Because water and heat often lead to mold, mildew, and oth­er aller­gens, not tak­ing these steps will result in employ­ee health issues, an unhy­gien­ic ware­house, code vio­la­tions, and more.

Testimonials

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.
