Regular cleaning is important, but going above and beyond routine service is necessary for facilities in many industries.
Retail commercial cleaning remains an important aspect for business, during the important holiday shopping season and all year round. Maintaining a clean, and safe, storefront or other retail space communicates to customers that you take pride in your business and support your employees in their efforts to serve consumers.
Cleanliness and hygiene have been all the rage in the post-pandemic world and they have never been more emphasized. With the ongoing holiday season and increased customer footfall, maintaining a clean and sanitized retail space or storefront is critical. We may be moving further away from the pandemic, but it has left behind a legacy of disinfection and sanitization, which retail stores now swear by. It is an expression of their contribution to safeguarding public health.
While e-commerce has certainly exploded in response to the pandemic, recent trends indicate the importance for retailers to improve the in-person experience for shoppers. This is evidenced by an ICSC Holiday Shopping Intentions Survey, which indicated that 81% of shoppers plan to spend more time in stores in the 2022 holiday season. Furthermore, the annual holiday survey showed consumers expect to spend 6.7% more during the holiday season this year.
Additionally, the Brick and Mortar retail report outlined how customers are more aware of their surroundings than ever:
- 69% of shoppers say that an unclean environment (dirty restrooms, floor spills, dusty shelves, grimy carts) leads them to not return to that store or choose a competitor.
- 4 out of 5 shoppers say they’d rather go to a store that prioritizes cleanliness and hygiene than the latest technology.
- 92% say a clean store environment increases the likelihood they will make a purchase.
Clearly, retail commercial cleaning services play a vital role as a differentiator for customers. From hospitals to arenas and everywhere in between. Jani-King of Cleveland services every business space imaginable.
Understand That Retail Commercial Cleaning Also Impacts Your Staff
The beneficiaries of regular cleaning and upkeep of your retail environment are not just your customers, but also your own team.
A cleaner workplace ensures a healthy environment. By commanding cleanliness around the premises, you prevent posing a health risk for your employees. Also, it encourages them to show up more often and feel safe, productive, and responsible in contributing to the maintenance of their workplace.
A cleaner, healthier workplace — one with good ventilation, excellent air quality, and organized workspaces — can reduce absenteeism and offer an incentive for businesses trying to engage or enforce return-to-work plans. Workplace hygiene is the right of every employee. If deprived of a clean, healthy environment, friction will likely result between employees and management which in turn will play a role in worker retention and productivity. Cleanliness plays a major role in fostering the kind of atmosphere that employees will enjoy.
