If you thinking of owning a fashion business, and you want to be the person in charge of ensuring it looks right and operates well, we’ve got some tips on cleaning up after a long day’s work. Because retail stores can be some of the filthiest places on earth, and you’ll want to break the mould with your own little boutique!
And seeing as spring is coming along soon, you’ll want to get the spring cleaning checklist polished to perfection. So, feel free to read on if you’re in need of some inspiration.
Focus on Your Window Displays
Your window displays are what bring customers in, both old and new alike. They’re enticing and exciting, and show off the best you have to offer to the populace at large. And if you want to be sure they’re pulling in as much brand recognition and potential profit as you need them to, you’ll want to keep them clean.
Get a duster and some polish, and make sure you give the windows a once over once a week at the least. Mop up any dead insects as soon as you see them dropping down into your windows, and make sure the area is well lit too. The lighting especially helps to make an area look clean; the brighter and bluer, the better!
Pick Up All the Fluff, Dust and Debris on the Floor
At the end of the day, the floor in a retail store can look a real mess. It can be covered in all kinds of materials; fluff from the clothes, dust from outside (and those ceiling corners you can’t quite reach…), and any other debris brought in on customer shoes. You’ll want to focus on this amount of dirt and grime after cleaning everything else, to ensure you don’t add more dirt to your lovely clean floor!
And if you want an easier time of sweeping or mopping at the end of the day, you might want to invest in a commercial floor sweeper. They make doing the rounds a lot faster than usual, and you can just turn it on, move it around, and then empty it whenever the waste bag fills up a little too full.
Rearrange Your Clothing Rails
You should also think about rearranging your clothing rails at the end of the day too. This helps to make the racks and rails look a lot more coherent after a whole day of customers thumbing through them. Group them by colour groups, or by types of clothes. And if you can polish down the rails to help the clothes hangers move a little easier, take 5 minutes or so to do so!
A hard day’s work in a retail store doesn’t stop when the doors shut. There’s a lot of cleaning you’ll have to do afterwards too! Make sure you can move quickly through the store, and buy all kinds of cleaning tools and products to help minimize your cleaning process needs. Collaboration.
