Proper Outdoor Maintenance is Grounds for Success

A First Impression that Lasts

Outdoor spaces speak volumes about a business before a customer even steps through the door. Well-maintained exterior spaces set the stage for positive customer experiences by communicating a level of professionalism and care.

Successful cleaning programs understand the importance of outdoor maintenance in maintaining a professional image, keeping outdoor spaces safe and minimizing repair costs. So, where should you begin?

Start From the Ground Up

Hard surfaces like sidewalks and entranceways should be pressure washed at least once a year to clear away any mold, mildew or algae. If left untreated, they can become a potential slipping hazard or health concern for people with allergies.

For smaller outdoor spaces, a manual walk-behind sweeper is a cost-effective tool to efficiently clean excess dust and debris from sidewalks, courtyards and entranceways. For larger spaces like parking lots or garages, consider a ride-on sweeper or scrubber. They offer increased productivity over walk-behind models and their robust design handles even the toughest outdoor cleaning jobs.

Apart from aesthetic benefits, proper cleaning of hard outdoor surfaces extends their lifespan by minimizing wear-and-tear caused by built up dirt and grime, reducing the need for costly repairs.

Make a Clear Difference

Proper window cleaning offers a number of benefits for building occupants and the bottom line. Over time, dirt, dust and pollutants accumulate on glass and if left unchecked, can cause scratching or degradation. Regular cleaning ensures a professional appearance and maintains glass integrity to avoid expensive window replacements.

Clean windows also maximize the amount of natural light that’s let into a building. A North American survey found natural light as the most sought-after office perk, proven to improve employee well-being, increase productivity, and reduce eyestrain. Clear windows foster clear, productive minds, and that positively impacts the bottom line.

A properly maintained outdoor space not only creates a professional image, it improves employee morale and reduces long-term repair costs. Reach out to your Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene rep for the products, tools, and expertise to get the job done right!
