It may be a tough decision initially, but you’ll have to decide whether to hire retail cleaning services for your retail store, or actually do the store cleaning yourself. Usually, store owners save time and money by hiring professionals, but if you don’t want to call for retail cleaning services, perhaps the following guidelines will help with keeping your retail shop spotlessly clean for your customers.
Consumers like to visit clean stores. If they use the restroom while they’re there, it had better be clean, because your good reputation can be tarnished that easily. From research, we know shoppers will complain to their friends or post online about poor experiences, much more than they communicate to others about good experiences, so don’t give them a reason for complaints.
Before your store opens, make them sparkling clean. Spray glass cleaner on the mirrors and wipe until streak-free. Wash sinks and hand fixtures with disinfectant spray cleaner, then dry them with a soft cloth or paper towel until they shine. Mop the floors with a good disinfectant soap with hot water. Toilets must be cleaned with anti-bacterial cleaners. While wearing your rubber gloves, clean the seat and rim, then scrub the bowl with a brush and flush the commode. Isn’t it good to know that if you aren’t okay with this type of dirty work, you can always hire retail cleaning services?
Declutter. Clean up the piles of clutter that accumulate during a busy shopping day so your shoppers don’t see piles or cluttered shelves that make the store feel unclean and disorganized. Dust every shelf and retail product. Store appearance means a lot to shoppers. Dressing rooms need attention throughout each day in order to be kept clean and inviting to each shopping guest. Never get backed up with piles of clothing, retail products, boxes or garbage that will make your store look messy
How clean are your floors? Will it be apparent to your customers that you took extra time and care to make them clean and shiny? If the answer is no, maybe retail cleaning services should be called. Get some help! Let the professionals remove scuff marks and buff the floor until it shines beautifully. Look for any carpet stains and use a stain remover. Consider replacing some of the floorings that look bad.
Lastly, welcome your shoppers with clean glass doors, and clear windows and display units holding retail products for their memorable and positive shopping experience.
