The Budd Group cleaning services for COVID-19 and the flu
In a recent blog, we discussed what some are calling the 2020 “twindemic” in reference to the dual threat of seasonal influenza and this year’s novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). As ominous as this label and reality may be, however, there is somewhat of a silver lining -- namely, the past 9 months of dealing with COVID-19 has equipped many businesses and individuals to better face any and all of winter’s common contagious diseases, including the flu and this recent pandemic. Most of us have grown accustomed to wearing masks, socially distancing from others, and abiding by restrictions put forth by state mandates, however begrudgingly. These ongoing efforts are bound to reduce the spread not only of COVID-19 but also the seasonal flu this year. With all that said, businesses can and should do more to keep their employees, partners, and customers safe this winter and beyond. And hiring experienced, knowledgeable, capable cleaning services is a powerful way to keep various diseases at bay. Let’s discuss how The Budd Group’s CDC-compliant cleaning services can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the flu in your workplace.

How Cleaning Services Prevent COVID-19 & The Flu

We Offer a Range of Cleaning and Disinfection Services

Standard cleaning providers can make a workplace look and smell better, but cleaning alone does not eliminate the presence of harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. For this, you need a cleaning service that’s also equipped to thoroughly disinfect surfaces. Here at The Budd Group, we provide a range of disinfecting products and methods suited for different situations, including:
  • Antimicrobial barrier technology
  • Remediation disinfection and cleaning
  • Misting and electrostatic cleaning/disinfection
  • Deep disinfection
  • On-site disinfection technicians
  • UV-C light disinfection
  • ...and more
Following CDC guidelines, each of these services is designed to kill (or otherwise render useless) a wide range of harmful contaminants to keep your facility as safe as possible. Additionally, all of our offerings are tailor-made for each client to best suit their disinfection needs, budgets, scheduling necessities, and more.

We Maintain a Steady Supply of Health and Safety Supplies

Once it became clear that COVID-19 would become a real threat around the world, many supply chains underwent significant stress. Cleaning and disinfection products became particularly difficult to source as a result. While these supply chains have since largely recovered, some businesses may still struggle to purchase the necessary items to keep their people safe and healthy this winter. Fortunately, The Budd Group has worked hard to develop and maintain a strong supply chain for our operations and customers. Through our network of reliable distributors, suppliers, and manufacturers, we’ve established a supply chain of our own that can withstand market shocks. We make sure our clients have the cleaning, disinfection, and sanitation supplies they need to combat COVID-19, influenza, and more, such as:
  • Hand sanitizers and wipes
  • EPA registered disinfectants
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Infrared thermometers
  • Touchless technology (i.e. motion-sensor automated dispensers)
  • Electrostatic sprayers
  • Misting equipment
  • Microfiber cloths
  • ...and more

We Offer Flu Prevention Programs and Other Education and Training

Knowledge provides a powerful defense against contagious diseases like the flu and COVID-19 -- the more your employees know about how these diseases spread and operate, the better equipped they’ll be to avoid contracting or transmitting them. This is why The Budd Group makes a concerted effort to educate and train our employees in these matters and pass that knowledge and training onto the client. We also offer flu prevention programs for all facilities, which further disseminate key health and safety information and include specialized cleaning and disinfecting services (i.e. cafeterias and kitchens, water fountains, elevators, buses and other shared vehicles, break rooms, conference rooms, fitness centers, and other communal spaces). We carefully examine each facility, taking note of its most commonly used and shared spaces and surfaces. This allows our staff to make actionable suggestions to promote the ongoing health of all occupants.

Beat the Flu and COVID-19 This Season and Beyond

A new virus has entered human society this year, and it will live alongside the seasonal flu for the foreseeable future. While it’s not yet possible to completely eliminate the risk of catching or spreading these illnesses, The Budd Group is committed to helping you reduce this risk as much as possible. Whether you need reliable cleaning and disinfecting services, access to relevant health and safety supplies, and/or a team to educate and train your staff on flu/COVID-19 prevention, you can count on us.
