While summer is a relaxing time for some, it’s the busiest season for many facilities across industries. And now that the U.S. economy is on track to explode after a challenging year, businesses everywhere must be prepared to handle a highly active summer. Covering all your bases (i.e., cleaning, staffing, scheduling, landscaping, etc.) can be a major challenge if you lack the necessary resources. Partnering up with a reliable janitorial company like The Budd Group can be a major boon for your...

Person holding a personal air quality meter

While the air we breathe is all around us, we can’t see it with the naked eye. As a result, we don’t often think about the quality of the air inside our homes or workplaces. Just because we can’t get a visual on indoor air, however, doesn’t mean that it can't affect our health or well-being. Indeed, indoor air may be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air, especially if your property lacks proper ventilation -- these invisible pollutants can lead to respiratory issues and other ...

Person putting on reusable vinyl gloves

Disposable gloves can be immensely useful across industries and for a variety of tasks, preventing cross-contamination, protecting the skin from direct contact with viruses and bacteria, and more. However, the expendable nature of these gloves creates enormous amounts of waste, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic when PPE (personal protective equipment) usage is at an all-time high. Not only is this waste an environmental hazard -- it’s also a drain on any business’s bottom line. Sim...

Person disinfecting a doorknob for COVID-19

Keeping your employees and customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires a holistic approach to cleaning and disinfection. While airborne transmission remains the most potent avenue for COVID-19 transmission, the virus can also live on surfaces for several hours and potentially days and find new hosts this way as well. As such, your office reopening rollout must include a competent coronavirus disinfection strategy. Here’s how to provide the best surface disinfection for your of...

Person worshipping on Easter

Almost exactly one year ago, some public officials expressed optimism in the face of the sudden COVID-19 crisis, predicting that churches across the U.S. would have no issue hosting their Easter gatherings. While some churches indeed operated, as usual, others limited their congregations or canceled them altogether. Now, as Easter approaches once more, we’re looking at a different landscape -- effective vaccines are being distributed, case numbers are declining, and health experts have learned...

Coronavirus disinfection services

Recent developments in vaccines for COVID-19 and accelerated distribution have revealed something of a light at the end of the tunnel. However, it will still take time to fully move on from this pandemic. Even if we do approach what experts call “herd immunity,” some individuals will still be susceptible to contracting and/or transmitting the virus. As such, your office reopening strategy must include efforts to ensure the ongoing health and safety of your employees, guests, and customers. A...

Disinfection services

When the novel coronavirus rose to prominence one year ago, scientists scrambled to learn more about the nature of the virus and how it most easily spreads from one person to another. In those early months, many experts cautioned that the virus might be able to live on surfaces for extended periods of time. Since then, it has been discovered that surface transmission is not the primary method for the spread of COVID-19, but rather that respiratory droplets containing the virus posed the greatest...

We’re fast approaching the one-year mark since COVID-19 threw a wrench into all of our lives. Few of us expected things to go on for this long when the possibility of a pandemic first hit the public eye in early 2020 -- but now it seems like things are finally turning a corner. Last year saw a monumental global effort by leaders in the multiple medical industries to quickly create highly effective vaccines for COVID-19. And while vaccine distribution has hit some hurdles along the way, the U.S...

The recent development and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines have allowed society to see something of a light at the end of the tunnel after a long, difficult year. Despite this positive news, however, COVID-19 remains a risk in communities across the U.S. and the world. While many businesses have gradually regained their footing, an office reopening may be moments away from another shutdown if someone inside contracts COVID-19. Individuals and commercial entities need to remain vigilant and tak...

The Budd Group disinfecting a business from COVID-19

The past year has been an education on infectious diseases and how to mitigate their spread. The catalyst for this wake up call, of course, has been COVID-19, a novel coronavirus that has proven to be highly adaptable and transmissible, so much so that it managed to spread across the world in mere months following its emergence. Fortunately, the advent of effective vaccines provides a light at the end of this tunnel. Still, COVID-19 is here to stay for the time-being, so individuals and institut...
