The Importance of Cleanliness in Business



When it comes to running a business, first impressions count. And these impressions are formed the moment your clients and customers walk through your door—literally.  A clean front entrance, crystal clear windows, and even a well-maintained welcome mat can draw people in and make them feel comfortable in your space. But the impressions don’t stop there. From the waiting room, to the bathroom, to the conference room—never underestimate the importance of cleanliness in business.

Cleanliness and Customer Comfort


Your customers can tell how well your space is maintained almost immediately upon entering, and it affects their overall comfort level. Our senses are keen to certain details, whether consciously or subconsciously. Our eyes pick up on whether or not the carpet is clean and the shelves have been dusted. Our noses can detect how recently something has been vacuumed or if there’s been any deep cleaning in the restroom.


While employees might become accustomed to the way an office or building is maintained, a customer’s fresh set of senses hasn’t gotten used to your space. Ask yourself, If I were a new customer here, would I feel welcome and comfortable? What detail—good or bad—would you detect? Start there to determine whether your level of cleanliness is affecting your customers’ comfort.


Cleanliness and Employee Health


Keeping your building clean isn’t just about making a good impression on customers; your employees need a clean working space to remain healthy. Sometimes the little things we so easily overlook cause the biggest issues. Consider the spaces that tend to be the most frequently used and contaminated:

  • vending machine buttons

  • door handles

  • bathrooms

  • sinks

  • break room refrigerator handles

Cleanliness and Employee Productivity


A clean work environment helps employees be more productive by:

  • reducing the number of sick days

  • improving employee well-being

  • enhancing overall employee satisfaction with the workplace

And happy, healthy employees will have a positive effect on customers.
