It’s common for most places of work have some kind of public area, whether it’s a reception area or meeting room.
For example, when you think of estate agents, doctors surgery or financial advisors, all of these companies will have a public area. Furthermore, 9 out of 10 times this area will be the first space your visitors and clients will see and base their judgements upon. This is why it is so important to keep on top of your office cleaning and ensure that these areas create a positive long-lasting first impression of the business. One way you can achieve this is by having a clean public area.
Keeping your public areas clean and tidy in your workplace can sometimes be easier said than done. Obviously, this is always easier with the help of a professional cleaning service. This area is usually the area in which the visitor will wait for their appointment or see a member of staff, so they have a lot of time to look over the small details, from dusty shelves to fingerprints on windows.
But, don’t get too focused on your reception area and forget the other important areas. When clients or customers come to a new place they tend to take everything, so be sure not to stop at the reception room. Ensure you pay extra attention to all public areas such as the bathroom and meeting rooms etc… Regular cleaning and tidying will have a long-lasting effect on your prospective clients and will make existing clients want to return.
Cleaning aside, a couple of points you may want to consider when trying to make a last impression on your clients:
- Add personal touch like potted plants or flowers, which also have cleaning benefits as they keep the air within the office clean and fresh.
- Also, consider some bright cushions for extra comfort and to add a pop of colour.
- If you want to put some reading material such as company literature or magazine, make sure they’re up-to-date and not falling apart. There’s nothing worse than picking up a magazine from 2 years ago!
