Ever heard the expression, “from the ground up?” Most everyone has. Everything begins at ground level, with the floor. The floors in your facility, whether they are modern, polished concrete or traditional carpets, are the first thing anyone will see upon walking through your doors. While it’s unlikely that a customer isn’t going to make a purchase because they notice a smudge on the floor or that an interviewee is going to turn away a job offer because the carpets look a little dusty, these things are cumulative. In other words, a dirty office carpet might not encourage other cleanliness practices from your employees and a dirty retail floor space might not encourage customers to return.
Clean, well-maintained flooring sends a message to everyone inside your facility. First, employees are less likely to adopt unclean habits if they are in a clean environment already, particularly their workplace. By extension, clean floors improve the general mood in your space. When people feel better at work, they work harder.
Hook: Clean floors are key to creating a welcoming image for your overall brand. Whether you have customers and visitors regularly visiting your establishment or just a few regular employees, clean floors convey a sense of pride.
