Custom, clean-in-place matting systems offer a host of advantages over traditional “throw-down” mats, but what makes clean-in-place matting the smart business solution?

High-Touch Surface Disinfection - 3 Steps to Success

Posted by THE Cleaning Resource on Aug 25, 2017 9:09:58 AM

Keeping our students and staff healthy can be tough when they are in school. Schools and universities are hot spots for germs, and germs spread quickly when people are in close contact with each other.

“Most infectious diseases are transmitted by direct contact, either by touching an infected person or by touching surfaces contaminated with pathogens,” says Charles Gerba, environmental microbiologist and professor at the University of Arizona's Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science. "The crowded classrooms, cafeterias and gyms in schools can be a breeding ground for a variety of diseases including colds, influenza, norovirus and staph infections such as MSRA.” 

Here’s what you need to know about the high-touch areas, and the steps you should take as a facility manager to protect your students.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the Total Solar Eclipse is set to bring "once-in-a-lifetime" traffic to the St. Joseph, Missouri area, as people from around the globe descend upon the area. St. Joseph is one of the fifth largest cities along the path of totality, and the third best city for viewing the eclipse.

Wet or Dry Scrubbing - Which is Preferred When It Comes to Your Gym Floor?

Posted by Technical Service Department on Jul 17, 2017 10:48:11 AM

At Hillyard, summer months mean its gym floor season. Every year we receive one question in particular when it comes to gym floors: is it better to scrub a wood gym floor wet or dry? The quick and easy answer is that wet scrubbing is preferred because of the advantages it offers. When wet scrubbing a gym floor with Hillyard Pre-Game®, the floor will obtain an overall deeper level of clean; body oils and other contaminates that may remain after a dry scrubbing procedure are easily removed. The wet method also prevents dust from becoming airborne, which can resettle back onto the floor, getting into the finish at application.
