retail center cleaning

There’s nothing better than a sparkling, clean floor, especially if you’re a retail complex or a large shopping mall. Fortunately for you, your property mainly has tile flooring which is easier to maintain and isn’t susceptible to wear and tear like hardwood and carpeting. However, considering that you have a high rate of daily footfall and thousands of square metres to clean, keeping your floors in tip-top condition is easier said than done. Whilst it lasts longer, tiled flooring comes with its own challenges such as dirt and grime stuck between the cracks, spills, and scuff marks.

Customers value clean floors

Did you know that customers place a high importance on cleanliness? No matter how excellent your service is, customers will not want to shop at your establishment if the environment is dirty. A previous survey commissioned by The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association (ISSA) found that 95 percent of shoppers purchasing decisions are influenced by dirty restrooms and unpleasant smells as well as dirty floors, spills or stains, dirty shopping carts, among others. “Shoppers want to feel comfortable when visiting a retail environment and ensuring that a store is clean and healthy is a crucial part,” Dan Wagner, ISSA’s Director of Facility Service Programs, commented on the survey’s results.

What’s your cleaning strategy?

Dirty floors in over utilised areas such as toilets and food courts are breeding grounds for germs. Restrooms can get wet or damp pretty easily whilst food debris can get caught in the linings of the tiles. All of this aren’t only displeasing to the eye but can pose a health and safety risk to customers.

Continuous cleaning is needed to keep mall floors spotless and hygienically clean.  And, using only a mop and bucket alone is no longer effective. Washing, drying, and polishing malls floors is a time consuming and labour-intensive process that requires a cleaning crew, specialist equipment and deep cleaning services to efficiently eliminate dirt, grime and debris in entryways, walkways, and seating areas.

Due to sheer size of flooring that needs to be cleaned, every retail centre requires a cleaning plan and schedule that results in a quicker, proper overall clean. All areas of the mall need to be cleaned frequently throughout the day. Cleaning staff must be on standby to attend to accidental food and drink spills to avoid slips and accidents. Mall entryways, where mats capture dirt and sand from visitors’ shoes before they spread them to the flooring, must be monitored and vacuumed regularly to ensure they do a proper job.
