Retail Cleaning Checklist

Shopping is more like a favorite pastime for a lot of people. The cleaner the vibe and the fresher space, the better will be the experience that your customers will have at your store. This right here is why retail cleaning is something you should take seriously. Since there’s too much ground to cover and a lot of aisles and products to clean, it is important that you follow a standard retail cleaning checklist that covers every part of your premise.

On an overall note, these are what your everyday retail cleaning should revolve around

  • Scrubbing and maintenance of floors
  • Cleaning all your public conveniences and restrooms
  • Mirrors, doors, glasses, and window cleaning
  • Cleaning and stain removal of carpets
  • Ventilation and air ducts cleaning
  • Concourse cleaning
  • Scrubbing, dusting, and organizing your products or merchandise
  • High touch-points disinfection and sanitization

But if you were to ask a professional like JBN Cleaning, we would want you to ideally break down your routines into smaller portions and checking every basic thing off of those lists.

Our cleaners typically go for a four-part cleaning routine.

  1. Entrance, exit, and reception areas
  2. Product showcase area
  3. Breakrooms or restrooms
  4. Stairways, lifts, or escalators
  5. Billing counter

1. Entrance, exit, and reception areas

These areas count the most for your first impression and it gives the first push for the customer to walk in and take a look around. Ensure that you cover the following major routines every day.

  • Vacuum and sweep any litter
  • Dust cobwebs and remove surface dirt from the floor, walls, and furniture
  • Cleaning of doormats if any
  • Use glass cleaner for any smooth glassy surface to clear away handprints and other dirt particles
  • A dusting of the banner or sign of the brand at the doorway
  • Dust, wipe and polish the tables, desks, light fixtures, or electronic gadgets
  • Sanitise the overall area especially the high touch surfaces like the handles
  • Make sure your décor looks on point along with neatly arranged coffee tables and magazines if any
  • Mop and clean the hard flooring with disinfectant
  • Empty the trash bins and replace liners wherever necessary

2. Store area with the product showcase

Here comes the most crucial part. This is the make or break space for your business. The more attractive the way you place and showcase your products, the better will be your chances of making a sale happen.

  • Proper dusting and cleaning of shelves and aisles
  • Wiping of both the interior and exterior of glass display units
  • Cleaning of the partitions between the shopping aisles along with any mirror surfaces
  • Ensuring the window, window sills, décor articles, furniture are all kept presentable
  • Spots and stains off the carpet, floor, or walls should be paid attention to every day so as to not let them accumulate over a period of time
  • All the soft furnishing should be vacuumed
  • Mop and clean the hard flooring with disinfectant
  • Empty the trash bins and replace liners wherever necessary
  • Also, clean the air vents regularly to prevent blockages

3. Restroom areas

Give your customers a fresh vibe in all your remote corners including your restroom by going for an impeccable retail cleaning service. Here’s a retail cleaning checklist of things for you to implement in the restroom on your daily cleaning.

  • Cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitization of toilet bowls, washbasins, seats, and the rim
  • Disinfection of high touch-points including flush handles, doorknobs, tissue dispensers, etc
  • Replenish the soap and tissue dispensers after wiping their respective surfaces
  • Mop and clean the hard flooring with disinfectant
  • Empty the trash bins and replace liners wherever necessary

4. Stairways, lifts, or escalator structures

They help commute between different parts of your retail store and hence, you should ensure that you maintain this space clean too.

  • Mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping the stairs and landings
  • Dusting and proper polishing of the ledges, railings, fixtures, and banisters
  • Cleaning of handles, elevator buttons, and the mirror or glass surface till they shine perfectly
  • Disinfecting high touch prone surfaces

5. Billing counter

And there comes the final area where you make your sale happen. Combining an impeccable mastery of cleaning along with a keen vision of marketing, you can make your customers buy more than what they originally came here for.

  • Dust, clean, wipe and disinfect checkout stands
  • Disinfect high touch points like the railings if any along with the buttons of card machines
  • Clean off product placement space at the checkout
  • Organize highly marketable products at the checkout for added returns
  • Mop and clean the hard flooring with disinfectant
  • Empty the trash bins and replace liners wherever necessary

Why will a professional be your better option than hiring a janitor?

Being an SME in the extremely competitive arena of retail, you’ll have to ideally be focussing all your energy on branding, marketing, franchise expansion & development of your business. Having to overlook cleaning at all your corners would only be an added burden on your retail cleaning checklist. The entire process of hiring, training, screening and processing payrolls can be draining your operational expenses.

It is thus comparatively easy to hire professional retail cleaning services who will take increased accountability in everything they do for you. Since their business depends on your satisfaction, they’ll be extra cautious to leave no corner unattended.

In addition, the supplies utilized for cleaning are very expensive. Not two floors are the same and neither are any two places within the same building. The demands of each surface vary from one another and you’d have to search for all of those if you want your janitor to do a good job. And there comes equipment that keeps upgrading with time.

A company like JBN Cleaning will help you cover this with ease. We come with our own supplies and all the latest equipment on the market. Since we are eco-conscious and only stick to green cleaning routines, we use carefully hand-picked organic supplies that pose no risks of allergies, pungent smells, or respiratory problems for you shoppers.
