Keeping the Showroom Tidy in Between Cleanings
Providing a clean workplace benefits both your employees and the impression you leave on clients that visit your showroom. Cleanliness makes workers more productive, happier and less likely to become ill. It also puts clients at ease and makes you look very professional. If your auto showroom is being commercially cleaned, but not every day, there are ways to help keep the showroom tidy in between cleanings.
Provide a designated break area and discourage eating at employee desks
Eating at a desk usually used for work can lead to messy surfaces, food stained paperwork and crumbs that attract bugs. Discourage employees from keeping or eating food at their desk and provide a proper break room instead.
Keep Clutter to a Minimum with Organized Paperwork
It’s easier to clean surfaces when they aren’t covered with paperwork. Furthermore, cluttered paperwork and boxes of files lying about make your office look disorganized. Have a file storage system in place and use off-site storage if a lot of paperwork must be kept. One of the easiest ways to cut down on office paperwork is to digitize documents and use an online file storage system.
Disinfect Showroom Vehicles
With potentially hundreds of people touching the showroom vehicles each day, viruses can easily spread, especially on the door handles, steering wheel, and truck latch. Wipe each surface down with a mild disinfectant each day. This will keep your work area germ free and will also freshen the smell of the area at the same time.
Empty Trash and Recycle Bins
Make sure to empty the trash and recycle bins each night. This will take away smells and make the office look less cluttered. If you had a daily cleaning service they would empty all the bins everyday so make sure you do the same. Don’t forget any small wastebaskets in the common areas and the trash in the bathrooms.
Keep the Work Area Clean
With employees touching just about ever car that rolls through, it’s important to ensure they are sanitizing as well. This entails frequent washing of hands, dusting off clothing, and keeping their tools clean.
