Four Summer Cleaning Tips for Companies
Winter (and a nasty spring) weather can damage your store and property in many ways. Heading into summer, welcome the warm weather with a clean store. Follow these four tips to clean up your business for summer.
Take One Problem at a Time
It can be extremely overwhelming looking at all the damage winter and spring weather caused. There may be cracks in the sidewalk outside your building, potholes in the parking lot, salt stains, and a variety of other problems caused by weather. Try to focus on one problem at a time. Start by just focusing on filling potholes in the parking lot without thinking about other issues. Once you finish that, move on to the next problem. This will keep you from becoming frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of work that you must do.
Determine Which Problems Will Need to Be Done Over Time
You won’t be able to fix all your issues in one effort. You will most likely have problems that need time to get fixed. Divide the problem into separate chunks and take on one at a time so that the thought of tackling the whole issue doesn’t overwhelm you.
Use a Third-Party Perspective
If you have spent days cleaning your store and property, it can blind you to the way things truly look. Bring in someone who has not been involved in the cleaning process so that they can give you a clearer view about how things look and what work you still need to do.
Think About Your Customer
As well as looking at the cleanliness of your property overall, think about how it will look from your customer’s perspective. Identify the areas in your store and on your property that you should prioritize and the aspects that will matter the most to a customer or client.
