5 Tips to Not Get Sick This Cold and Flu Seasons

There’s usually a cold, bug or flu going around. That’s especially true in schools, and even more so during the notorious cold and flu seasons. Schools are quite germy, for lack of a better phrase; kids are often very close to one another, and they frequently touch each other, exchanging germs in the process.

Here at Mac’s Janitorial Service, we specialize in keeping schools and other facilities germ-free 12 […]

Office Cleaning Tips for Cold and Flu Season

For instance, some people have children – kids are notorious germ harbingers – and those playground germs might end up on the breakroom counter if a mother rests her purse there while she gets coffee. Or, let’s say a security guard works the night shift and he comes in right after a little league game. While he makes his rounds, the common cold jumps off […]
