You want to show off your goods in a clean and inviting environment while ensuring you are also presenting your business as reputable and respected. The cleanliness of your retail suite is central to your customers’ experiences. It’s important to you that your clientele is comfortable and happy when they are shopping in your store, and having a clean shop will provide that pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere. A retail shop’s appearance goes a long way to making your guests feel comfortable and interested in browsing.

How to Clean a Retail Space

Dusting

When you consider areas in your retail store that you want to maintain and clean on a regular basis, the first one that comes to mind is dusting. Dusting shelves and display cases high and low is key to keeping your flat surfaces tidy and the products on your displays looking their best. From your shelving and display cases, to lights and wall structures, shoppers expect areas to be dust free and organized, making them easy to look at and browse.

Sanitizing

When reviewing your cleaning procedures, you also want to remember to sanitize and shine areas that get touched and used throughout the day: door handles, countertops and tabletops. Make sure to also clean  reception areas and dressing rooms as well as behind your register and order areas. These areas will require wet wiping and polishing, but also tidying up and organizing to make sure the whole shop looks presentable and orderly.

Glass & Mirrors

Speaking of shining, remember to keep mirrors, glass doors, and cases looking their best with daily wiping and polishing. When these areas look their best, they remind your clientele that you provide the best and are on top of your game. Shoppers love to shop in a clean and tidy store.

Floors and Carpets

Of course, you’ll want to address your floors on a daily basis, too. Whether you have tile, carpet or hardwood in your retail suite, addressing any dirt and debris that comes up during the day will keep your shop looking attractive and clean. And remember to do a thorough clean up in the evening as well. A daily approach to floor cleaning always makes your retail establishment look professional and polished, and helps your floors to stay in better shape for more years.

Staff Areas

While the front of your retail store is a must for your cleaning schedule, you’ll also want to remember the back staff areas: restrooms, kitchen and lounge areas, hallways and exits. These areas shouldn’t be left until they look rough and unappealing. Keeping them on a daily or weekly schedule helps ensure good health and makes for a happy work environment.

Deep Cleaning

A last cleaning approach to consider is ‘spring cleaning’ and larger projects like deep tile and hard surface floor cleaning, large or tall window areas, and carpet shampooing. Making time for these on a seasonal or a least yearly basis will really keep your shop looking its best throughout the year.
