Clean Up Your Act – Business Cleaning Tips for Increased Foot Traffic


Customers are the lifeblood of your business. Are you presenting the best possible image? Does your business make a good impression from the moment a customer walks through the door. Consider these tips to help your business shine.

Keep the Entry Area Clear and Uncluttered

A crowded, busy entryway will discourage customers from crossing your threshold. Make it easy for people to get to you. Your entry should be welcoming and tidy with plenty of space without any trip or bump hazards. And do not limit your attention to inside! Make sure the outdoor walking space that leads to your door is swept clean and checked for litter daily.

Don’t Forget the Dusting

During a busy day, it is easily overlooked, but your customers will notice dusty shelves and items. A layer of dust gives the appearance that your business is tired and out of date. Wipe down all dust collecting surfaces at least weekly. If you aren’t attending to that simple task, your customers may wonder what else you’ll overlook.

Address Stained Carpets and Ceiling Tiles

It’s been a while since you had that roof leak repaired but you haven’t quite gotten around to replacing those water stained ceiling tiles. A visitor spilled an extra-large coffee in the middle of the floor and while you cleaned it up as best you could at the time, there’s still a stain. People will notice. Replace the damaged tiles, and have a professional steam cleaner work on the carpet stain or hide it with an area rug. A business that is visibly in disrepair implies that the organization itself may be in need of some mending.

No Uninvited Guests

Ants along the baseboards? A flurry of moths when something is moved? Are those mouse droppings? Nothing will turn off potential foot traffic faster than evidence of pests of any sort. Keep your business free from crumbs of food or food related garbage that will attract pests, and minimize any piles of debris that might serve to shelter unwanted visitors. Consider having a pest control expert inspect your location to find and eradicate any undiscovered stowaways, and make recommendations for future pest prevention.
You might even consider the DIY route with this one as there are many locations that you can purchase products and take back your place of business right away. For example, Solutions Self Chem will help teach you how to use their products and give you the know-how to be able to manage any issues.
Your customers may not notice the care that you put into cleaning and maintenance, but they will notice right away if you neglect it. Perception of value starts at the door, make it count!
