For a deep and thorough cleaning, it is both worthwhile and strongly recommended that you call professional retail cleaning services to take care of the dirt and grime that your store has accumulated over the course of the winter. Most commercial cleaning services can be scheduled after hours. However, when it comes to small cleaning projects, you can tackle them yourself over the course of a few days. Here are a few tips on how to get through the arduous process of seasonal cleaning:
Create a To-Do List
Before you tackle your spring cleaning, create a to-do list of what needs to be done. That way, you have a written list of priorities. Find the items that need to be replaced or disposed of and note how long each task will take. The ones that will take the longest should be at the top of your list. Once you’ve completed these, work on the smaller items.
Ask for Help
In addition to professional retail cleaning services, it’s useful to get your staff to help out with spring cleaning. This includes dusting, mopping, vacuuming, and reorganizing. Your carpets are the first to come into contact with the harsh salts that road crews use. Thankfully, a quick vacuuming can greatly improve their appearance until you can have a professional and more thorough cleaning done.
Replace Cleaning Supplies
You may not have replenished your inventory of cleaning supplies since last fall. Before you tackle your retail store cleaning, it’s recommended that you visit a hardware store to stock up on supplies like mops, brooms, detergents, and other cleaning materials.
Throw Out the Old
While you’re cleaning and reorganizing your store, look for any old fixtures or inventory items that are out of date or that you no longer need. Once you’ve disposed of them, you’ll have the chance to purchase new stock and fixtures. That way, you’re improving the aesthetic of your store as well as its cleanliness.
Spring cleaning will also give you the chance to rearrange your store as you move racks and other items in order to clean. Changing up your store will refresh its look, which your customers will no doubt appreciate.
Have a Spring Sale
Now that your store has been cleaned, both by you and by commercial cleaning services, you can have a sale. With that, your customers can see how much cleaner the store is, as well as take advantage of the savings. Sending out a notice on social media is a cost-effective way to advertise your spring cleaning sale.
