First impressions really do count

We all know that cleaning is essential and can be the very first impression of your business. If you manage a car showroom or dealership you will understand that image counts for a lot. Whether you’re selling high end sports cars or quality second hand vehicles, keeping the service desk, tea/coffee area, reception, restrooms and showroom floors in pristine condition can mean the difference between landing that sale or not.

    Show off your stock in a clean showroom.

    Buying a brand new or second hand car is a large investment for most people. Keeping your showroom clean is an important way to say:

    • That you care and look after your surroundings and cars.
    • Are professional in your outlook and value your customers.
    • That you are a reliable and trusted provider, of cars, financing and ongoing services.

    If your clientele are offered a coffee in an area that looks unkept, and unloved they are going to wonder if the service areas are also as haphazard in their care. Well stocked coffee machines and clean tables with comfortable seating for your client pondering that sale, or keep a service customer comfortable while they await their car service is eesential.

    When a buyer walks into your showroom, you want their eyes falling on the cars, not unkempt surrounding areas. Unclean floors and chaotic desks can take their attention away from the products on show. That can happen just as much when they’re passing by in the street. If your windows look a little murky and inside appears untidy, they may well pass by and go search somewhere else.

    • Can my sales team see the lot without obstruction?
    • Is the servicing area clean?
    • Do my customers have clear routes to the service area and the workshop?
    • Are the customer bathrooms pristine?

    The Importance of Professional Cleaning

    Professional car showroom cleaning has a number of advantages:

    • You ensure that areas like windows and other surfaces all look great. Customers coming and going can leave traces such as fingerprints as they browse your cars. A professional team make sure these are taken care of.
    • Then there’s the floors. Showrooms generally have hard floors with gleaming tiles and shining these up can have a huge impact on the look and feel of the area around your cars.
    • If you have carpeting in the service or reception area, keeping that clean as everyone comes and go can be difficult. A deep clean once in a while can make a huge difference.
    • Then there are all the other areas that you often forget about on busy days such as the toilets and the coffee station which really need to be kept hygienically clean.

    The good news is that a professional cleaning service will be able to work with you, assess your premises and tailor a solution to your exact needs.

    That means you don’t have to worry about what your customers think about your showroom when they walk through the doors. Your team can concentrate on the sales and service while we ensure your showroom is sparkling.

    What our clients say


    We have worked with staff from Archway Facilities Ltd during our busy vacation season and recently in term-time, overall we are very pleased with the work undertaken by the team. The team are always polite and work hard to get the job done. The whole process, from day-to-day task allocation, through to liaising with Snezana is easy and each member of their team is professional in their approach. We will certainly continue to work with Archway Facilities Ltd in the future.

    Mark Williams

    We have found Archway Facilities very professional and the cleaning has improved to a very high standard. The Client Account Manager is always on hand to manage the cleaners wherever needed and also to ensure holiday and sickness are always covered. I would highly recommend Archway facilities to any potential client, as they always do what they say they are going to do. We are extremely pleased with the services offered and glad we appointed them.

    Helen Batson

    Archway are responsible for the entire building, which we believe is the best testament to their ability to consistently meet our high standards. Having managed an extremely busy Mercedes-Benz Retailer, we understand there will always be problems when housekeeping is held to a high standard.

    One of Archway Facilities’ strengths is their ability to keep problems to an absolute minimum and act quickly to resolve any problems that do come up. In our experience, Archway Facilities is always determined to meet or exceed our high expectations. At this point, we are enjoying an almost “worry-free” relationship, one that is producing for us the high standard of cleaning services we expect in our building.

    Steve Johnson, Service Manager – Mercedez Benz of Exeter

    Steve Johnson, Service Manager

    I have found Archway Facilities to be a very efficient, hard-working team who provide a very high standard of cleaning.

    Archway Facilities are our daily cleaning contractor for our 50,000 square foot office and their high standards are maintained throughout their team of Cleaning Operatives, Supervisors and Management.

    I have also used them for a number of individual projects, for example, end of tenancy property cleans, floor tile grout stripping & sealing and residential cleans. I would be happy to recommend them for any cleaning project small or large.

    Andy Heard, Facilities Manager

    We’ve used Archway facilities as our cleaning contractor for many years and have always been impressed with their level of customer service; they are easy to contact, very responsive and the quality of the cleaning has always been excellent. Our cleaner is clearly committed to doing a good job for us, she is punctual, polite and a pleasure to have on site. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other companies.

    Gerrard Clapp

    I am especially for the way this work was coordinated and organised. I met with (Archway) before and after the work was carried out and witnessed first-hand how hard everyone was working. Archway Facilities conducted a deep clean of the entire house leaving the house in immaculate condition throughout.

    This work needed to be done before the house was sold. Subsequently, it came as no surprise when we managed to find our client a buyer within the first week of marketing the property leaving everyone feeling extremely satisfied and happy at the end result. Had the house not been cleaned to such a high standard it would not have sold so quickly or for such a good price.

    I will have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Archway Facilities on future projects and therefore look forward to working with you again; it was a pleasure working with you all, demonstrating such a positive “can and will do approach” throughout.

    John Burgoyne, Managing Director

    Archway Facilities has supported 3 sites for the last 18 months on behalf of Collegiate. These sites are luxury student accommodation in prime locations of the city. They have very successfully supported us in offering an exceptional standard of cleanliness throughout all sites not only in the common areas but also within the apartments themselves. Their staff is punctual and proactive and very appropriate in front of tenants. I would highly recommend them to any prospective/new client. I would also include the office staff as very professional.

    Angela Kelly, Accommodation Manager

    We have been working with Archway Facilities for several years and they have proven to be both professional and reliable. The management team take extra care to listen to our needs and always deal promptly with any queries. The cleaning staff are friendly, helpful and have a very keen eye for detail that makes them stand out from the rest. We are extremely pleased with the quality of service they provide and would highly recommend.

    Robert Warner

    I have had an excellent experience using Archway Facilities and I would not hesitate to recommend them. They provide a consistently professional cleaning service and our dedicated cleaners are extremely thorough, conscientious and committed to cleaning to the very highest standards. The team always arrive promptly, in smart uniform and take great care to follow all H & S rules while on-site.

    Overall an excellent service that went above our expectations

    James Mullins

    Archway cleaning has provided us an excellent cleaning service for 4 years. In that time the standard of cleaning, consistency, reliability and the flexibility provided by the company have been exceptional. I recall on the occasion of an inspection, I requested that the surgery had a deep clean. This was delivered with the minimum of fuss, at a reasonable price and to a high standard. The cleaners who are supplied are well trained, accommodating and flexible in their approach.
    All health and safety regulations are provided by the company; staff insurance, COSHH assessments, and monthly cleaning audits. I have no hesitation in recommendation ARCHWAY cleaning.

    Gillian Champion

    We have used Archway Facilities for several of our rental properties and they are always professional, pleasant to deal with and do a great job every time! Using a locally based company was an important factor for us when selecting a contract cleaning team and Archway Facilities have proven to be reliable, honest and dedicated. They take the time to listen and understand our requirements, always arrive on time and are available at short notice when the need arises. So, we would definitely be happy to recommend Archway Facilities to other local businesses. 

    Cara Khadaroo

    “Since launching Grow Coffee House on South Street, Exeter (and moving our publishing team into the same premises), we have been using Archway Facilities for our regular window cleaning. A big factor in the success of a Coffee House is people walking by, looking in and seeing a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. The regular and high-quality job that the guys from Archway do for us is an important factor in the environment that we have created. Thank you!”

    Joff Alexander-Frye Owner / Director / Editor

    We have had Archway service our building since February 2015. At their suggestion, we started with a deep-clean – an exercise I would thoroughly recommend as it lays the foundation and basis for both sides to move forward.. They have provided us with excellent service ever since. They typically clean our building during the afternoons – however, there is always flexibility on both sides.

    During this short time, any issues have been addressed immediately in a professional, friendly manner. On the occasions our ‘regular’ cleaner is absent, the alternative cover is provided, whereby we do not have the headache of ‘not being cleaned’. Telephone calls and e-mails are always responded to in a timely manner. Frequent visits are made to our facility to guarantee quality service and ensure our needs are being met – this is a small, friendly, professional company – I would highly recommend Archway for any of your needs

    Karen Davies

    We are extremely pleased with the service that Archway Facilities have provided for us over the last few years. Their communication is excellent, responding to queries and addressing any issues promptly and in a professional manner.

    Their office staff and employees are very friendly and deliver exceptional standards all year round. I would highly recommend them.

    Adele Chapman - HR & Facilities Co-ordinator

    Archway Facilities has been cleaning our office for a number of years and we have found them to be extremely reliable and helpful. They are always willing to go that extra mile to help with any situation that arises and if there are any problems they are dealt with immediately. We find that the cleaners are very efficient, punctual and friendly and It’s always such a treat to come into a sparkling office. We would not hesitate to refer them to anyone looking for a professional service.

    Eva Gombos-Boda

    Archway have been contracted to clean our Exeter office from its inception in 2013. Prior to this Snezana cleaned our office herself from 2010 until she formed the company in 2013.
    Our long term relationship is proof that the service provided is quite exceptional. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.

    Jessica Knee, Office Manager

    We used Archway Facilities to clean three of our properties at very short notice.  We felt they offered a competitive price and found  them to be very organised, professional & courteous.  We found their staff to be pleasant and trustworthy and all arrived on time.  They worked very hard to give a thorough clean throughout.  We would definitely recommend this company

    Louise Down - NHS

    We have found Archways Facilities to be professional and consistently provide a great standard of cleaning and value. We have been very pleased with the cleaning services by their team. Their team members are punctual, courteous and efficient.
