Car dealerships keep their cars meticulously clean, but what about the rest of their environment? Customers come looking for a car, but that’s not all they see. Hopefully they do not see doors and windows with fingerprints, or dirty floors or bathrooms. No matter what type of business you run, you will be judged on your cleanliness, so make sure your car dealership is in tip-top shape with BearCom dealership cleaning services.
Dealerships generally have a lot of glass in their buildings, and it needs to be kept clean. Weekends are an especially busy time for many dealerships, and customers come in with their little kids who run off and press their noses and sticky hands against the windows as soon as the adults start talking business. Many doors and windows in offices can be kept clean by simply wiping down the bottom four feet of glass each day.
Car dealerships also see a lot of foot traffic, especially on weekends. It’s inevitable that dirt and sand will be tracked inside onto carpets and floors. On a rainy day, add in leaves and other debris, and you have a first-class mess on your hands. Frequent vacuuming, sweeping and mopping is your only defense.
With lots of customers comes lots of bathroom use. Keeping bathrooms clean is imperative. Customers will not forget a bathroom with dirty or clogged sinks or toilets, or one that’s out of toilet paper, soap or paper towels. Constant attention to bathroom cleanliness is a necessity.
Many dealerships have waiting rooms for buyers who are waiting for their cars to be ready for transfer. Often these rooms have free coffee available. Anyone who has ever worked in an office or been to a 7-11 knows that just one person can leave behind the remains of a torn sugar packet, drips from the stirrer, a ring from the cup, splashes or milk and granules of sugar, so when you consider the number of patrons at a dealership, you can have one huge mess on your hands. At least ashes, ashtrays and cigarette butts are a thing of the past.
Although the offices of individual salespeople see less traffic than the main showrooms, they still need to look (and smell) professional. Keeping desks and other furniture free of clutter is the first step. It’s hard to clean surfaces you can’t see! If you have carpet in your offices, it should be vacuumed at least daily, and if you have bare floors they must be swept, perhaps more frequently than once a day. And never neglect the keyboard and computer monitor. Stained keys or monitors that are dusty or splattered with beverages do not project a professional image.
