We get it. You’re busy running your business, and you don’t want to be bothered with worries about keeping your building clean. But I can tell you from firsthand experience that having a routine cleaning for your commercial building should be a priority. That’s because the benefits of regular cleanings go beyond a pretty exterior. Let me walk you through some of the positives you can expect if you make a routine cleaning part of your plan for keeping your business looking great:
better first impression for clients and customers.
A clean building creates a better first impression for clients and customers. Cleanliness is often associated with health, professionalism, trustworthiness, and success. When you walk into an office or facility that is clean, it shows that the company is well run. A dirty building can give off the opposite impression: unorganized, untrustworthy and unsuccessful.
prevents dirt and grime buildup on the exterior.
Regularly cleaning your building will keep the exterior of your commercial building looking clean and appealing to customers.
If dirt and grime buildup on the exterior of your commercial building is left unchecked, it could cause damage to the structure. For example, water stains from rain can form if not cleaned regularly. A buildup of dirt also increases heat absorption in summer months, resulting in increased energy costs for air conditioning units or other cooling systems required to prevent damage inside the structure due to excessive heat gain through windows and doors. Additionally, a dirty appearance can put off potential tenants or buyers when considering leasing or purchasing space within your business park or shopping center development project.
A clean business is a safer business.
Having a clean business is an important part of running a successful business. A clean building will not only look better, but it will also be safer for your employees and customers.
A clean business is:
Safer for employees and customers. A dirty building can make you more likely to slip and fall, which can result in injuries that could lead to broken bones or even death. It's also uncomfortable for people who have allergies triggered by dust and dirt particles floating around the air. These particles are easily spread through sneezes or coughs or shared by touching an object with them on it (e.g., door handles).
More sanitary because it lowers the risk of spreading germs through bacteria like Ecoli and Salmonella found on surfaces like floors and countertops due to improper cleaning methods such as using paper towels instead of rags/cloths soaked in disinfectant solution--which would allow these contaminants from one surface area another surface area during cleanup--or forgetting about germs altogether!
More hygienic since there are fewer places for germs to hide; plus if someone touches an item then touches their face immediately afterward without washing their hands first then they've just spread those germs onto their face without knowing it! Yuck! This could lead to getting sick if we don't wash our hands properly after using public restrooms especially when there's no soap dispensers nearby.".
Cleaning your storefront can increase its value.
A clean storefront is a much more attractive property to sell, lease or buy. While it may seem like a small detail, keeping your building looking nice will help you get the highest price possible when you want to sell or lease your commercial property. A dirty storefront can turn customers away and make it look like it isn't well-maintained or taken care of by the owner or business owner.
Cleanliness is one of the most important factors when looking at buying a new office space for your company. Cleaning up after yourself not only leaves a good impression on potential customers but also keeps them coming back! If they see that other people are cleaning up after themselves as well then there's no reason why they shouldn’t do so too!
Cleaning the exterior of your building can help prevent deterioration.
Cleaning the exterior of your building helps prevent deterioration, mold, mildew and rust. The sun’s UV rays can damage the paint on the outside of your building as well as cause it to fade over time. When exposed to moisture like rain or snow, your exterior coating will also wear out faster than it should if left untreated.
Corrosion is another form of damage that can occur when water gets into small cracks in the surface of a metal or wood structure; this causes rusting and corrosion which can lead to more serious issues such as leaks in windows or doors along with structural damage down the road.
