Whether you own a small shop or manage a large department store you will know how important it is to keep your premises clean and tidy. Because a customer’s confidence in a retail brand is built on their first impressions and the cleanliness of the store goes a long way to making that important, ‘good first impression’.
Hire a Professional Cleaning Company
One of the best ways to keep your retail shop looking its best is to hire a professional cleaning company like us to come in on a regular basis. We already clean for many retail shops including Aldi supermarkets, Mercedes car showrooms and high street chain Specsavers and pride ourselves in delivering our clients with consistently high levels of cleanliness to support their brands and ensure their customers have a positive experience.
Our Cleaning Team
Our experienced, locally based cleaning teams are thorough and detailed in their cleaning and work around your shop opening hours to minimise disruption and noise to your staff and customers. They are also educated in the special sanitising requirements needed in retail to ensure your customers get the safest customer experience each time they walk through your doors.
Shining floors, sparkling windows and dust free shelves are the key factors in creating an enjoyable shopping experience for customers and so here are the top 6 ways we will keep your retail stop clean all year round.
Reception areas, door handles, countertops and tabletops are all touched and used throughout the day and so require wiping with sanitiser and a streak-free cleaner to make sure they are kept clean and free of smudges, fingerprints, and marks that might get in the way of a positive first impression from your customers.
When you have customers coming and going each day, it can be easy for dust to accumulate on shelves but by dusting shelves and the products on your displays regularly we can help keep the focus on your products.
Dirty windows create a poor first impression on your customers. They not only obstruct from the view into your shop, but they also don’t allow natural light to enter inside the building.
Whether you have laminate, carpet or hardwood in your shop, the conditions of your floor greatly contribute to the customers’ first impression of your retail space. So, keeping your floors mopped or vacuumed daily always makes your shop look more polished and helps ensure you start each day of business looking fresh.
(If you have carpet, make sure you are scheduling regular carpet cleaning every six months to keep your carpet’s looking like new. For hardwood floors, look into stripping and re-waxing every year).
Cleaning Customer Toilets
A key indicator of the overall cleanliness of any shop is the condition of the toilets. If the toilets are unhygienic, customers will not only be unimpressed but are less likely to return. But we can not only make sure that the floors are clean, mirrors are spot-free, and the sinks, hand-dryers, and toilets are well-maintained, but can also ensure that supplies like hand soap, toilet paper and paper towels are always stocked.
Cleaning Staff Rooms
Keeping your retail space clean is not only important for your customers, but also your employees too. So, it’s important to remember to clean the staff room, staff kitchen area, hallways and exits because keeping these areas clean on a daily or weekly schedule makes a happy work environment and helps build staff morale.
