When entering your facility, one of the first things that clients and employees will notice is your floor. This is why hiring the right commercial floor cleaning company is crucial. Keeping your floors clean can help visitors to have a more positive first impression of your building, and ultimately your organization.

But what exactly do people notice? Studies have found that “distinctiveness of image,” or DOI, plays an important role in our perception of flooring cleanliness.

DOI means how clear an image is when reflected from a surface. For example, if you are able to read the text of a sign that’s reflected in your flooring after your NJ commercial cleaning company has done its job, the floor has a high DOI. If reflection of objects is blurry, then the floor has a low DOI.

Of course, not all flooring surfaces are able to provide the same DOI. A glossy surface will reflect better than a dull one. And the state of the flooring is important; dings and scratches can also negatively impact DOI. But these are things that your commercial cleaning company can also help with.

In order to maintain the highest DOI possible, it’s important to maintain regular maintenance of your floor, using cleaning products designed to not just improve gloss but also to protect the flooring surface itself. Many businesses are surprised by the results they can achieve with the right commercial cleaning partner.

Focusing on protecting your cleaning surface, not just cleaning it, can improve perceptions of your facility – and also help your flooring to last longer. Talk to your New Jersey commercial cleaning company to find out if your plan is achieving these goals for your organization.

We often don’t put much thought into the continual updates that engineers apply to everyday products. Yet, the individuals responsible for making these products more energy efficient has had a large impact on reducing our impact on the environment and its resources. One such technology is something we’ve all used hundreds of times since our childhood… The electric hand dryer. 

moder-hand-dryer-(1).jpg

 

Invented in 1948 by George Clemens, this device aims to eliminate paper towel waste from restrooms and landfills while simultaneously reducing the number of trees that need to be cut down in order to be turned into paper products. Early hand dryers were tremendously inefficient as they took a long time to dry ones hands. It took so long, in fact, that many people continued to use paper towels instead! 

 

This problem does not exist with modern designs. Most feature high powered jets that dry hands in much less time - and with a lot less energy - than older designs. This is due to the fact that most newer designs make do without heating elements; the sheer velocity of the air, often in excess of 300 mph handles all the drying responsibilities.

 

When a business owner decides to utilize equipment such as modern hand dryers it means that individual has made a commitment to help protect the environment and its precious resources. Going one step further by hiring eco friendly cleaning services such as those offered by Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ), means that individual knows they only want to work with one of the best janitorial services companies in NJ

Clients who request Eagle BMJ’s eco-friendly cleaning services trust that our use of natural cleaners means they’ve been derived solely from sources that would have been commonly used 120 years ago. Vinegar comes to mind; it’s safe, non-toxic, and quite effective as a cleaning agent

natural-cleaners.jpeg

 

Due to a variety of factors, “natural” means something altogether different with respect to modern cleaning products.


Consider that the chemicals used to create surfactants (a cleaning products primary cleaning compound) are technically found in nature, making them natural by definition. They are categorized as petroleum-based (petrochemicals) or lipid-based (oleochemicals). However, few examples of each exist as stand-alone compounds; in other words, both require further processing in order to obtain the properties which will allow them to perform their desired role as cleaning agents. Thus, the word "natural" is often a misnomer; the distinction being that petrochemical-sourced cleaners are considered synthetic, while oleochemical-based surfactants are considered natural.

The Honesty of Little Children

If there’s one thing we learn as adults, especially if we’re parents, is that little children, up to the age of four, are brutally honest. Bad haircut? They’ll tell you. Outfit doesn’t fit like it used to? Yes, you’ll hear about it. Yet, this honesty also pays its dividends when questioning them about something that occurred, at least until they inevitably begin to lie. Asking questions like, “Who ate the last cookie?” or “Where did you put your shoes?” more often than not results in the truth, especially if someone else was at fault (i.e. siblings)!

Point-Source vs. Nonpoint-Source Pollution

The ability of younger children to tell the truth typically makes it easier to correct problems that arise amongst them. The same holds true with adults, and, in particular, certain businesses adults create and operate. As the title implies, this topic revolves around protecting the environment; and in this instance it will be through identifying what is known as Point-Source Pollution vs. Nonpoint-Source Pollution. The analogy about young children helps people understand Point-Source Pollution, which refers to pollutants entering the environment directly from easily identifiable sources, such as smokestacks, pipes, or even a large shipwreck (remember the Exxon Valdez disaster?) This would be akin to the four year old proudly pointing and shouting, “He did it! He ate the last cookie!” Such obvious sources of pollution makes it easier for agencies like the EPA or DEP to monitor the discharge,then enforce laws or levy fines as needed.

Conversely, Nonpoint Source Pollution means the pollutant is nearly impossible to source since there are no easily traceable paths, such as the aforementioned pipes. Think of all the oil spots you see in the parking lot of the local mall. Whose vehicles did they come from? Nobody knows, yet those pollutants harm the environment just as much as oil oozing from a gaping hole in a supertanker. Most residential and commercial pollutants are categorized as such, and choosing the right products can ensure harmful discharge into the environment is mitigated or eliminated overall.

Eagle BMJ Believes in Protecting Our Environment


We at Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) are proud to say that we utilize many green products when servicing all of our clients, however, we also offer exclusively green cleaning services.

Through the use of green products and procedures, this equates to a healthier environment for a better tomorrow… Starting today.

For quite some time, eco-friendly cleaning services were thought to be prohibitively expensive despite being better for you and the environment. Yet, like the environmental movement itself, incremental, yet important, changes occur over time that make it both noticeable & cost effective!

eco-friendly-cleaning-services.jpg

 

The first step is to assess the “greenness” of your current janitorial methods. Consult with your professional green cleaning services provider to analyze what works and what could be improved upon. Small details that are easily overlooked often make noticeable differences when put into practice. An example of this is took place in a Missouri school district whereby their new custodial director was tasked with making the district greener and to do so for less money. He noticed the garbage cans came in five different sizes, each requiring its own specific bag, throughout the district. The director switched to a standardized size, saving the district money and reducing its environmental impact.

 

It is important to remember that every building has an opportunity to save money, even those that have yet to adopt a green program. In addition to analyzing spending, analyze new products and best practices in the field to ensure you’re remaining ahead of the curve.

 

Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) offers green cleaning services to our customers. We understand the importance a green program has on the real and perceived image portrayed by customers and employees alike. In fact, Eagle BMJ offers a wide range of professional cleaning services performed by trained professionals who will properly clean and care for your facility. 

 

Therefore, making the decision about who cleans your business doesn’t have to be difficult, and we’ll gladly prove it to you. Contact Eagle BMJ today at (888) 730-1123 to arrange for a FREE, no obligation, on-site consultation. Allow us to show you how we can help your facility be cleaner, greener, and more productive by doing what we do best so you can do what you do best!

You read that title correctly... Flu season is right around the corner! In preparation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a page on their website dedicated to the 2015-2016 flu season. There are many news reports annually telling us how our fellow Americans work too much and forego time off to continue working, thinking it protects their jobs or pleases management. Yet, when it comes to the flu, time off from work must be taken to allow for recuperation and to prevent the spread of the virus to others. Nevertheless, we all know of “that person” who comes to work, even when they’re sick, which doesn’t help matters. But just how potent is the flu each year? A staggering 111 million sick days are used at a cost of $7 billion in lost wages and productivity annually, proving that the flu is a real threat that must be taken seriously.
 
 
Although most, if not all, of the major pharmacy chains offer free or deeply discounted flu vaccinations, not everyone takes advantage of them. In fact, another CDC report shows that less than 45% of American adults got vaccinated between 2009-2015. Thankfully, people are a little better at getting their children vaccinated, with just under 60% getting vaccinated in the same time period.
 
 
With respect to the workplace, the best way to prevent fellow employees from getting sick is to try and prevent the spread of the flu virus, and other germs, in the first place. This can be accomplished, in part, by simply keeping the working environment clean. In many instances, personal hygiene - and common sense - can go a long way towards preventing the flu. As uncomfortable as it sounds, not everyone washes their hands after using the restroom, nor do they cover their mouths and noses with their elbows when sneezing or coughing, if at all. Worse still, how many times have we all come across used tissues on countertops or tables! As gross as these examples sound, we all know they happen, and not always by accident.
 

While you can’t control the hygienic habits of others, control what you can by choosing a professional office cleaning service that will keep your office clean and sanitized. 


Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) has provided clients throughout NJ, NY, and PA with high-quality, custom-tailored cleaning options for almost 20 years. One of our services includes an on-going commercial cleaning program, making us the perfect choice for ensuring year-round cleanliness.

Our cleaning experts are well-trained and well-equipped to clean almost any facility or situation with ease.

  • Air Vent Cleaning
  • Breakroom, Kitchen, and Cafeteria Cleaning
  • Carpet Cleaning & Hard Surface Floor Care
  • Dusting and Damp Wiping
  • Emptying of Trash Receptacles
  • Restroom Sanitizing and Disinfecting

 
 
Eagle BMJ understands the importance of keeping any facility (along with our own homes) clean, especially during flu season. While the physical appearance of your facility is very important to us, the health of all those who enter the building matters more. Still, almost 200,000 people are hospitalized annually for the flu or flu-related ailments, according to the CDC. Help keep that number from getting bigger by choosing Eagle BMJ as your professional cleaning service. As with the other services we offer, this is something we take very seriously, reinforcing why we have become one of the best full-service office cleaning companies in NJ.

It’s easy to overlook certain things in our lives that we should pay more attention to... Remember those air filters you meant to have replaced back in the fall? We thought so. No doubt about it, it’s easy to forget that the filters in our HVAC systems need to be changed every three months. Think of it this way, have them changed with the seasons. 

hvac-air-filter.JPG

 

Air filters are made of different types of media, including fiberglass, pleated cotton, pleated paper, or polyester allowing some to work more efficiently than others. An air filter’s efficiency is measured in units called MERVs (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values) which is a scale created by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. A particular filter’s MERV rating is based primarily on the filter material being used and ranges from 1-20. The higher the MERV, the more effective the filter is at cleaning the air entering the HVAC system and emerging at the registers. 

 

This is an important fact to consider because while almost all air filters are designed to trap dust & lint, only more efficient filters will also trap allergens, mold, pollen, and dander. Certain filters even have the ability to trap bacteria and viruses in an effort to improve the overall indoor air quality of your business.
 

When used in conjunction with professional green cleaning services, such as those offered by Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ), it’s easy to see how your entire business can be cleaner & greener for everyone!

Everyone appreciates the benefits of carpeting... It insulates, it feels great to walk on, and with many different styles, patterns, and colors available, it can really complement a room! However, it’s not without its drawbacks; namely, it can trap dirt, bacteria and other allergens that adversely affects the health of a building’s occupants. Carpeting can also develop unsightly wear patterns over time. While vacuuming is the most obvious cleaning method, it’s not as effective as people think. Indeed, carpets require specialized care to keep them as clean as possible.

When it comes to eco friendly cleaning services, a lot of cleaning companies make a pledge to do right by the environment. Some do an outstanding job while others never quite fulfill those promises. Among the key reasons why some are more successful than others lies in the details. For example, Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) selects paper products that is made from recycled paper. These are typically labeled as Pre-Consumer Content, meaning it consists of paper that has not been previously used by the consumer; and Post-Consumer Content, meaning it consists of paper that has been previously used by the consumer. Additionally, such paper is typically unbleached and free of inks & dyes used to print patterns.

 

Eagle BMJ Recognizes That We Must Be Responsible Stewards of the Earth 

Consequently, we have committed ourselves to utilizing products that are certified as green either by their manufacturer or by a third-party organization. We only use green products that have been labeled as "Designed for Environment" (DFE), meaning the product has been approved by the U.S. NJ green cleaning services for offices and commercial spaceEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA), thereby following strict guidelines towards reducing chemical exposure to both cleaning company workers & building occupants alike.

As we have seen all too often in the news as of late, the human mind can be “brainwashed”, that is, systematically reprogrammed to make someone adopt radically different beliefs relative to societal norms. While we’re not talking politics or religion in this case, we are referencing the environmental movement. Specifically, we are talking about how people could get “greenwashed”.

green-cleaning.jpg

 

By now, popular marketing buzzwords featuring the words green & sustainable are used quite interchangeably; however, to environmental scientists they remain separate entities. Thus, with respect to eco-friendly cleaning services, a reputable company will properly promote sustainable practices, utilize green products, and purchase the equipment necessary to make a difference for those looking to reduce their respective impact on the environment. Unfortunately, a certain amount of confusion exists regarding these concepts which can propagate a false sense of environmental responsibility, leading to the aforementioned “greenwashing” of a client. Like whitewashing, greenwashing occurs when claims of eco-friendliness and sustainability are made, but amount to little more than marketing spin designed to make customers feel good, or even pay more for, green products or services without offering any legitimate environmental benefits.

 

Green cleaning practices and sustainable facility maintenance have never been more crucial than they are now. Thankfully, Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) understands the importance of proudly offering all green janitorial services to those clients who want to do right for the environment and their employees on multiple fronts.

green cleaning janitorial servicesThe modern environmental movement began on April 22, 1970 thanks to the efforts of a Wisconsin senator named Gaylord Nelson. For on that day, Sen. Nelson proposed that Americans throughout the country be given a voice to speak out against the seemingly unchecked environmental damage being inflicted upon the nation’s natural resources as a result of rampant industrialization and population growth. Over 20 million people responded, garnering the attention of other members of Congress who, up to that point, had largely ignored Sen. Nelson’s pleas for environmental action.

 

That day became known as Earth Day.

 

Earth Day has since provided countless people around the world with the inspiration to become advocates for our planet. Indeed, one of Earth Day’s most endearing outcomes in the 45+ years since its origin has been that we can all make a difference, no matter how insignificant that action may seem, because every little bit helps. 

 

Eagle Building Maintenance and Janitorial Services (Eagle BMJ) proudly offers green janitorial services in lieu of its more traditional janitorial services.


The benefits of using a local NJ green cleaning service includes the reduction of potentially harmful organic or synthetic (inorganic) chemicals being introduced into the ground and/or water resources. Another benefit is the reduction or elimination of harsh chemicals and the residues they can leave behind on surfaces, possibly impacting someone’s health. Eagle BMJ only uses green products that have been labeled as "Designed for Environment" (DFE), meaning the product has been approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for following strict guidelines to reduce chemical exposure to both cleaning workers and building occupants.
