The lobby of an office is a place that any customer or client will walk in and see first thing. It is really your way of making a good impression right off the bath. That is why it is important to have your lobby decorated nicely and invitingly but it is also just important that it is kept immaculately clean. It may be an area that is not full of people or used often but needs to be a main focus of your office cleaning service. There are several areas that need to be addressed to ensure your lobby is looking its best.
Baker Sandoval Cleaning Lists Focus Areas to Help Keep Your Lobby Clean & Inviting
Clean the Windows: The windows are the first thing that you see when you walk up and something that you look out while waiting for your appointment. If they are covered in dust, dirt and debris you are looking at a mess rather that the scenery, which can be distracting and off putting. The dirt also blocks lots of the natural sunlight that helps to make a space look and feel more inviting. The windows and glass doors need to be given special attention. Customers are happier and want to spend time in places that are in good clean condition.
Dust Everything: It can be easy to forget about the dust that is naturally building up in the lobby area. You most likely are going in the area to pick up a client or to walk out of the building. If you have decorated your lobby then you likely have plants, shelves and tables that are slowly collecting dust. You never want a customer to walk in and not want to set down their bag because of the dust on the table. They should look around and not need to worry about it. Be sure that you dust the lobby well and don’t leave any area left out. Some people wander and pace while waiting for an appointment or meeting and can look over all the surfaces in the room to kill some time.
Use Entry Mats & Runners in High Traffic Areas: You want to make sure that as people walk in and out of the office there is something there that will collect the majority of the dirt and dust. A great way to trap the dirt and stop it from being tracked all over the floor is to have a mat at the entrance to the building. A mat is made to help remove the dirt that is on peoples shoes so that it won’t get dragged onto the other parts of the building. It will help to eliminate a lot of the dirt that you might find at the end of a day. The mats needs to be cleaned and replaced often so they can do their job.
Leave It Smelling Good: One way to have a room smelling pleasant is to make sure it is clean. The dirt and dust can cause a musty odor so removing it is a great start. You can also use oils or scented wax as an additional way to add a nice aroma to the lobby.
