One of the fundamental rules of running a restaurant, hotel, retail store, or other commercial enterprise? A clean business is a successful business. Keeping your business premises clean and tidy is crucial for attracting customers and ensuring the health and wellness of customers and employees both.
The condition of your business space is a strong indicator for customers as to the quality of your products and services. The key to making a good impression is fresh and inviting presentation. Here are a few tips to help you keep your business clean and customers happy!
Designate one area for employees to eat and drink.
If you can condense the falling of crumbs and spilling of liquids to one main area, it’ll be much easier to perform a quick, thorough cleanup. Have employees eat their snacks and meals and drink beverages other than water in a specified breakroom or section of the store or office. Ask them to dispose of their food waste in the trashcans in this area as well.
Split up routine cleaning tasks among your team.
Working together to keep your space clean for customers and each other will be more efficient than assigning the responsibility to just one or two people. While major cleaning projects should be left to janitorial staff or a professional service, daily tasks must still be performed in order to keep your business space in good shape. Divide the smaller jobs—sweeping, vacuuming, wiping down surfaces, cleaning appliances, etc.—between your employees equally or on a rotating schedule.
Perform quick daily cleaning inspections.
Doing a quick walkthrough of the premises each night can save you a lot of headache in the future. Before you close up shop, have someone do a general sweep of the property to check for any big messes or missed spots that could attract pests or damage merchandise if left overnight. It’s also a good idea to note cleaning tasks that should be done soon during these daily inspections.
Hire a commercial cleaning company.
While daily measures are important for keeping your business in optimal condition, it’s also important to have your space cleaned professionally on a regular basis. A commercial cleaning service will have tools and skills that you don’t to get those hard-to-reach (often forgotten) places and areas that are easily missed. They will also disinfect your space with advanced sanitation measures to ensure a clean, healthy environment for you and your customers.
