The exterior of your commercial building is the first impression that everyone has of your business or brand. Not surprisingly, people will be a lot more attracted to buildings that have a clean and welcoming exterior than one with a dirty, neglected exterior. Whether to benefit visitors or staff, there are many reasons why it is so important to keep the exterior of commercial buildings clean, using a professional cleaning service.
1. Create a Great First Impression
If you have visitors who are not familiar with your business, the first impression is everything. If your building has streaky windows or grimy stonework, this doesn’t give an impression of a professional, organized business; it gives an impression of a business that doesn’t really care.
In fact, according to Forbes magazine, you have just 7 seconds to make a good impression – and for many customers, that’s going to be based on the exterior of your business. This is just one reason why it is so important to create the best possible first impression for every new visitor by regularly using a professional commercial cleaning service.
2. Create the Best Space for Your Employees
The happiness of your employees is essential to keep up high levels of productivity during the workday. When windows become too dirty, it causes natural light to be blocked out and morale is lowered. Dark or artificially lit workspaces make it harder for employees to focus and remain motivated throughout the day.
With beautifully clean windows, natural light is allowed to flood in, ensuring your employees remain happy and productive throughout the day.
3. Protect and Preserve Your Building
Aside from aesthetic reasons, professional outdoor cleaning will protect and preserve your commercial building for much longer. The build-up of grime and dirt over time will work to clog ventilation systems and bird droppings can have a corrosive effect on many types of building material.
Glass can also be affected by dirt and can actually degrade if it is not looked after properly. If you leave a lot of time between cleanings, windows can actually start to look permanently dusty even if they have just been cleaned, and microorganisms such as algae can build up around window edges, leading to components that are more fragile.
Having your building cleaned regularly ensures that mechanical systems work as they should, building materials are protected, and glass remains looking good as new for as long as possible. Not only this, but you will save money in the long term as a regular professional cleaning service costs a lot less than paying to have parts of your building’s structure completely replaced.
4. Maintain a Good Reputation
Another reason to keep a clean a clean building exterior is to maintain a good reputation with your neighbouring businesses. If your business is on a street with many others, having an unattractive building could make other business owners feel negatively towards you and your relationship with your fellow business owners could be jeopardized.
When you have a highly attractive business exterior, it reflects the positive impact that you have within the business world and shows that you really care about the way in which your brand is perceived.
We also can’t avoid the fact that if an exterior of a business is in disrepair, we assume it’s not doing well financially. Most people do not want to be associated with a failing business. You don’t need to be ultramodern, you just need to be clean.
