HOG 3 things visitors notice about your office
Do your clients enter your office and view your business as professional or do they leave feeling less than impressed? First impressions are everything when it comes to the perception of your office or business premises in the eyes of your customers. 

 

As soon as a customer enters your door the ambience they meet in your space determines how they perceive your business, and the impact this creates is just as important as the professionalism of your staff or the quality of your products. 

 

Not only is prioritizing office cleaning in a competitive environment like Lagos essential to generating more sales by keeping customers comfortable in your business premises, it can often be the difference between securing a lucrative long-term business deal and losing out on potential customers.

 

Maintaining a clean office sounds straightforward, however most business managers find it difficult to consistently maintain a high standard of cleanliness in the workplace while dealing with all other more pressing responsibilities. To help you ensure that a positive impression is created, here are the most commonly noticed problem spots that leave your customers with a lasting impression of your business.

Smell

Accumulated dust, sweat-stained furniture and poorly ventilated spaces tend to leave office spaces with a stale odor that although might not be noticed by the workers on the inside, are immediately picked up by a visitor stepping in from fresh air. This creates the impression of stagnation and poor maintenance culture. To prevent this from happening, it is essential that your cleaners stay on top of general cleaning with specific emphasis on timely furniture upholstery cleaning, cleaning sanitary areas – restrooms and break rooms and adding deodorizing air fresheners to their cleaning routine. Along with putting timely garbage disposal schedules in place, policies should also be put in place to discourage staff from eating at their desks and leaving unwashed dishes or stale food in the break rooms.

Floor

One of the first things a visitor notices when entering your premises is dirty and poorly maintained floors, which suggests a lack of professionalism and poor attention to detail. Whether you have fully carpeted floors or tiles, it is essential that you maintain a proper cleaning system that ensures that floors are dirt-free at all times. Ensure that cleaners have floor cleaning routines several times during the work day to ensure that dirt is removed almost immediately after it is created. Invest in a good quality vacuum cleaner, and use it daily to keep your rugs and carpets clean and fresh.

Clutter

Stacks of files, folders, old newspapers and other items scattered across the office tends to create the impression that your business is disorganized, while also contributing to the stale smells mentioned above. Regular cleaning and decluttering sessions should be scheduled to ensure that old paperwork and items not in use are properly disposed of or recycled. Staff should also setup proper filing and storage systems to help organize paperwork that comes in and out of the office, while also prioritizing paperless systems and cloud storage.

 

The benefits of a professional cleaning service can never be overemphasized when it comes to maintaining a clean and welcoming space for your business to thrive. Zero Dirt Cleaning Services has helped businesses across Lagos make the right first impression by developing custom cleaning and maintenance plans for their business premises. Arrange a deep cleaning session or request for a janitor and equipment to be assigned to your site for regular cleanings today.
