Simple Tips for Keeping a Commercial Business Clean for Customers

Staying in budget for a small business can sometimes be difficult, so cutting costs is common. One common area that small business owners tend to cut costs in is also one of the most important and over-looked aspects of running a successful business: cleanliness and public health.

This duty of care simply requires a little information, and some tactical effort on your part, in order to be successful and within budget. Not only does a healthier, cleaner environment increase your company’s overall success, but you can expect better reviews, more repeat business, improved cost management, and a sense of liability protection you’ve never experienced before.

The Basic Standard of Office and Store Cleaning

It is inevitable that germs and bacteria will spread and be carried into your store. Now with flu season on horizon, COVID-19 is not the only transmissible disease of the season anymore. Fortunately, there are easy ways to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria in your place of business. With a basic understanding of common behaviors, you can better prevent contagious hot spots and environments. You see, every day that your business is open, consumers and staff enter your premise, touching everything from doorknobs and countertops, to retail items, pens, elevator buttons, railings, credit card machines, and much more. From there, many leave to run another errand somewhere else with plenty of tangible surface areas.

How many of these people have a cold or flu? How many have just sneezed and touched a doorknob that an employee then touches, causing them to call in sick the next week because they too now have a cold? These are common scenarios that lead to the spread of germs, bacteria, and ultimately, illness.

Basically, any and all areas that are repeatedly touched or handled require routine cleaning and sanitation. Depending on the area or system, cleaning and inspection schedules might be on a daily, weekly, monthly, bi-annual, or annual basis. Although these business cleaning and facility maintenance needs night seem like they are out of your budget, they are not. For daily and weekly cleaning, all you need are some quality supplies on hand, like micro-fiber cloths, clean rags, multi-purpose spray cleaners, store-bought floor cleaning solutions, dish soap, hand sanitizer, bleach, disposable sanitizing wipes, and clean water.

Use the disposable sanitizing wipes to periodically wipe off doorknobs, dressing rooms, chairs, countertops, registers, and other surfaces that may be contaminated with germs. Use the multi-purpose cleaner for glass and windows, dressing rooms, countertops, bathrooms, desks, and more for a more thorough clean once a day. Use wipes or sanitizer spray for touchscreens, light switches, and buttons. For floors, use the mop or floor cleaning solution on a daily basis to protect flooring and maintain safe walking environment for everyone. Bleach can also be used for floors and bathrooms, but remember to always dilute it with water.

For Larger-Scale Cleaning and Facility Maintenance Needs

It is highly recommended for businesses to outsource professional facility maintenance for large-scale inspection and service needs, such as electronic systems repair and maintenance, HVAC, roofing, machinery, lighting, technology applications, floor replacement, window and door replacement, painting, and similar commercial maintenance and renovation needs. As a small business owners yourself, these services are much more affordable than you think, especially if you use your commercial general contractor for facility maintenance service.
