Wash Hands to Prevent the Spread of Viruses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has proclaimed the 2017-2018 influenza season as "the worst influenza outbreak in the last 13 years." Halfway through this flu season, all 48 contiguous states are reporting elevated levels of influenza transmission, with the typical worst flu month - February.

As this flu season continues, it's an appropriate time for us to review how we can help combat the spread of influenza. A lot of resources are wasted every year with improper disinfection methods that have no effect in stopping the spread of the flu.

Removing Candle Wax from Upholstery, Carpets

Posted by Technical Service Department on Dec 14, 2017 4:12:44 PM

The holiday season is officially upon us! Homes will be lit by warming candles, while churches will be lit up with the soft flow of candle light services. However, the ambiance and comfort candles can offer to your home or gathering can quickly turn sour when candle wax is spilled onto your upholstery or carpet.

Don't panic if you find candle wax on your favorite couch or rug, just follow this procedure to resolve this holiday cleaning dilemma. 

Candle wax removal from upholstery and carpets can be accomplished by first letting the candle wax completely harden. Do not try to wipe the wax while it is still soft, this will only spread the spilled wax. 

Once the wax is dry, scrape or chip away at the wax using a bone knife or credit card to remove excess surface wax. Then use a vacuum to pick up the loose fragments of wax. If the wax is still soft, use Hillyard Quick & Clean Gum-Go to quickly harden the soft wax.

We've all heard of Spring Cleaning, but what about Fall Cleaning? The turn of the calendar to the fall season marks a time of the year we tend to spend more time indoors. So it makes perfect sense to clean up our environment this time of year to ensure good health in the upcoming months.

Nicer weather conditions in late spring and summer months means windows and doors tend to be open more often, which in turn equates to more outside pollutants finding their way to the indoors. Fall cleaning will help rid our facilities of these contaminates.
