How to keep your Melbourne retail business clean

It’s important to keep your retail business in Melbourne clean with a professional commercial cleaner.

First impressions are everything when it comes to running a successful retail business in Melbourne. If your store appears dirty, chances are potential customers are not going to step inside your store. Spending time and effort in maintaining a clean retail store will help attract more customers.

We know that cleaning an entire store front can be overwhelming, so here’s a handy checklist:

  • Entrances and exits; a clean and tidy entrance will leave good impressions on potential customers and increase the amount of walk-ins to your Melbourne retail store.
    • Clean door and window glass
    • Clean door handles
    • Clean signages
    • Empty rubbish bin in front of the entrance
    • Remove cobwebs from the entryway
    • Vacuum or sweep entryway and doormats
  • Store areas often have the highest traffic with people interacting all the time. It’s important to keep the area clean and tidy not only to improve customers’ shopping experience but for the well-being of customers and staff as well.
    • Organise merchandise
    • Dust and clean shelves
    • Dust and clean furniture, fixtures, and decor
    • Clean all glass surfaces
    • Clean spots and stains on the walls, carpets and furnitures

    • Clean all sink surfaces, fixtures, and unclog drains
    • Clean mirrors and glass surfaces
    • Clean and disinfect all toilet and urinal surfaces

Most daily cleaning tasks are handled by employees; however, some stores might be too big for employees to do it by themselves. Even if the daily tasks are manageable, you’ll need to hire professional cleaners to deep clean your store regularly.
