Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

Keeping Your Business' Carpeting In Pristine Condition

by Lee Porter

If you own your own business, and you just had carpeting inside inside the establishment where customers come to purchase wares or services, you will most likely want to keep it looking like new for as long as possible. There are several steps you can take to ensure your investments remains clean and pleasing to the eyes of all who come inside your building. Here are some tips you can use to fulfill this endeavor.

Use Protective Measures When Inclement Weather Is Present

When it rains or snows outside, your carpeting will be more at risk for becoming dirty by those who walk upon it. To help protect it from unnecessary wear, use clear, plastic runners to cover high-traffic areas so they are less likely to become muddy as a result. Another idea is to use carpeting remnants in these areas so the color scheme remains the same while your flooring stays safe and dry underneath them. Any extra pieces can be stored in a nearby closet at times they are not needed.

Alert Customers To Wipe Their Feet Upon Entry To Keep Carpet Clean

If you want to keep your carpeting clean, it will be necessary to limit its exposure to debris. Since people are walking in and out of your establishment daily, this debris can add up rather quickly. To minimize the amount of dirt that ends up on your carpeting, tactful hints can be given to customers coming into your building. Place a cloth mat right inside your entryway door. Many will instinctively wipe their feet when they see it. A sign can be placed on an easel with a whimsical sign asking those who come in to wipe their feel before proceeding through the building. Most people will be agreeable in this request, allowing your carpeting's appearance to remain clean as a result.

Hire A Nightly Cleaning Service To Keep Carpeting Looking Its Best

Cleaning your carpeting each day will keep it in the best of condition. Take the time to vacuum it at the end of each workday so dirt is not tracked through the fibers of the carpeting on the following day. If you do not have the time to do this on your own, enlist help from a cleaning service to tend to the task. They will also be able to use steam cleaning equipment to remove any stains from the carpeting if necessary.
