No matter what we do, Mother Nature will always have a leg-up on us. When you’re running a business, the weather can significantly impact your facility, sales, and customer satisfaction. One of the biggest struggles is maintaining a clean and beautiful business facility while the weather is pouring rain and kicking up mud and debris, all of which will eventually end up inside your building and all over your floors.
Every business should have anti-slip mats at their front door. These can help to keep the dirt, mud, and other debris from outside from tracking onto your floors. During the rainy season, these mats are more important than ever. They give staff and patrons a place to wipe off their shoes before they walk onto a slick floor that could cause them to slip and fall. In addition, they can clear off a lot of the gunk from outside before they step onto your bare floors. If possible, keep backup mats so that you can rotate them during a severe rainy season that brings extended periods of heavy rainfall. Once the mat is saturated, it won’t do much to keep your floors clean, and it won’t keep your staff and customers safe.
Clean the Floors
Anti-slip mats are going to do some of the heavy lifting, but they simply aren’t a miracle cure for keeping the filth of the rainy season off of your floors. During the rainy season, you will need to take extra good care of your floors. Deep clean any high-traffic areas that get especially dirty, and make sure you’re cleaning the floors every day. It’s a lot of work, but it’s essential for keeping your floors clean during this time of the year.
Wash the Windows
Windows get really gross during the rainy season, which can seem strange considering the fact that they’re being pelted by water. Unfortunately, stormy weather kicks up a lot of dirt, mud, and various debris. Windows can become opaque from dirt buildup, and they can become inundated with leaves, twigs, and other debris that has been tossed around by Mother Nature. During the rainy season, it’s important to keep an eye on your windows and wash them regularly to keep the buildup from becoming extensive. The longer you leave it, the harder it will be to clean them up and get them shiny and transparent again. Not only do the windows of your business provide an important first impression to potential customers, but they also give them an opportunity to look inside, which can foster interest and convince them to come in for a better look.
