Retail Store Cleaning Tips for Black Friday
Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. Customers flood retail stores, eager to take advantage of holiday sales and promotions. An influx of customers means more human traffic into stores which means a bigger mess to clean. However with a little preparation you can protect your retail store from the flood of customers and get more business. Here are five retail store cleaning tips for Black Friday!
Window Cleaning: First impressions are everything. If a potential customer is driving or walking past you store they have only a few seconds to get an impression. Window cleaning is a great way to increase visibility for your retail store. Clean windows also let in more ambient light which increase positive attitudes amongst your customers.
Entrance Mats: Keep dirt and moisture out of your retail store with an entrance mat. Entrance mats are a first line of defense for your businesses floors. During black Friday the increase in foot traffic can make your floors extremely dirty. An entrance mat will protect you and save you money spent on floor cleaning services.
Disinfect: It is cold and flu season which means germs are everywhere. It is important to prevent your customers from getting sick as well as your employees. You should disinfect touch points and areas such as your entrance doors, railings, checkout counter and bathroom. You should also leave a bottle of hand sanitizer at your registers for customers and employees to use.
Trash Cans: If people cannot find a place to throw their garbage it can become your mess to clean up later. On black Friday you should place garbage cans strategically around your store so people can find a place to throw out things like coffee cups or food. You should also double line your trash cans in case a liner breaks to prevent a spill.
Be Prepared for Anything: Incase an accident happens it is best to be prepared. We recommend having simple cleaning tools like paper towels or a stain remover on hand. You should also keep the number of a profession commercial cleaning company on hand in case of an emergency.
