Like a good pair of leather shoes, a business place can use a good shine-up once in a while. Even if you and your employees do a decent job with the daily cleaning tasks of floors and bathrooms, it is still a fact of life that buildings and businesses can get grubby over time.
If you were to take a close look at your place of business right now, can you honestly say that you would not find any details needing attention?
Given that your place of business is an important component of the impression made on your customers, it is a solid investment to keep the place as clean and inviting as possible.
In most cases, that means an occasional deep office cleaning, in addition to the daily tasks like sweeping up, cleaning bathrooms, and wiping fingerprints off the front door.
If you already engage a professional service for the day to day jobs, consider adding a “deep cleaning day” into the schedule. Dusty plants or dirty windows may not seem like big problems when you walk by them every day, but you will definitely notice the difference in your site’s overall appearance when all those details are addressed.
Even for businesses that are not regulated by entities like the health department, it is important for customers to feel confident in the competence and attention to detail that a business can provide.
Dusty plants in a travel agency or doctor’s office may not seem relevant to the services being offered, but they send a meta-message to clients that details don’t matter in this place of business. It’s easy to counter that impression, though, with a thorough clean-up!
