Showroom Cleaning Process

Make a list of what needs to be done and prioritize the tasks. Cleaning is not a one-time event, it should be regular and planned in order to avoid running out of time or becoming overwhelmed.

5. Dust all furniture surfaces

How often should I clean my showroom?

To maintain a showroom in top condition, it is recommended to clean it every day.

Scheduling Cleaning

Make a schedule and stick to it! Cleaning should be planned around the seasonal changes, not the other way around.

1. Clean the showrooms on a regular basis during the off-season in order to keep them looking their best for when customers come in.

2. Clean during the peak season to get people in and out as quickly as possible while still getting the job done properly.

3. Schedule cleaning around other important business activities so that it doesn’t interrupt your workflow and you can maintain customer satisfaction at all times.

An effective Facilities Management company will use scheduling software within a Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system.
