First impressions count for a lot so it’s important to keep your business looking in tip-top shape all year round.
Whether it be a retail shop, an office, a hospital or a school, whatever the type of business premises may be, maintaining its look and overall level of cleanliness is imperative to ensuring your staff and customers not only feel comfortable but also stay safe.
So, with this in mind, we thought we would compile a quick maintenance checklist for your business, helping identify the key areas where we think you should invest your time and money.
From big tasks like cleaning the windows of a high-rise building to smaller jobs like keeping your workspaces clean, join us as we highlight how to keep your business well looked after over the long term.
Clean Your Windows
Whatever industry you work in, the chances are that your business premises will have windows on its exterior. Therefore, while you may think it’s more important to prioritise maintaining the interior, upkeeping your building’s exterior is arguably as important – if not more so.
One of the key ways to do this is by getting your windows cleaned on a monthly basis by a specialist team. This will not only help you maintain a positive reputation with your clients, but it will also improve and maintain the condition of your building, removing any dust and grime that has built up over time.
Keep Workspaces Tidy
If you work in an office, keeping your workspace clean and tidy is imperative – especially in light of the recent coronavirus pandemic.
Printers, phones, keyboards and mice are all massive hotspots for germs, raising the likelihood of staff absences through sickness when these items are left unattended for a long time. Therefore, if you don’t have a cleaner regularly coming to your office already, now could be the time to start looking for one in order to help keep both you and your staff protected.
Wash Away Moss & Lichen
Moss, lichen and algae can build up on the exterior of buildings, bringing down their appearance and making them appear a lot older than they really are. This, in turn, can have a knock-on effect on consumer opinion, ruining a potential client’s first impression before they’ve even entered the building.
Therefore, to prevent this from happening to you, if you notice moss, lichen or algae on the outside of your building, use a process called soft washing to clean and remove it on a regular basis.
Clear Your Gutters
While on the topic of maintaining the external appearance of your property, make sure you clear your gutters on a regular basis.
It may not be the most fun job in the world but, over the long term, it could prevent a wide variety of potentially costly issues – from flooding to blockages to drainage problems.
What’s more, it will also help maintain the structural integrity of your building’s roof, again minimising the need for expensive repairs in the future.
Here at Supreme Cleaning, we understand the value of maintaining building premises better than most. Therefore, if you have any further questions or queries on how to keep your building in tip-top condition, please do not hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience – we’d be more than happy to help.
