Ways Your Small Business Can Compete Against Big-Box Stores

disinfecting retail space

The retail world is a cutthroat industry, and business owners are constantly looking for new ways to get a leg up on their competitors. It’s hard enough competing against major brands like Amazon and Walmart. While it may seem impossible, your small business has a few significant advantages over these retail giants. Here are some tips to help you compete, presented by Complete Care Maintenance.

 

Make the Right Real Estate Decisions

 

If you operate out of a brick-and-mortar store, the location of your storefront will play a crucial role in your ability to attract customers. The perfect location for your business includes a good balance of visibility and affordability. Try not to give up one for the other! Evaluating an area for retail space is a complex process, so if you’re not sure where to start, it’s best to seek advice from a professional who’s done this before, whether you’re looking to lease, buy, or build your store.

 

Streamline Order Fulfillment

 

Big-box companies have so many customers that they can afford to lose a few to service issues and shipping delays. You can’t. Keeping your customers happy should be your top priority! You might even be able to attract some dissatisfied customers from those major retailers by offering a better shopping experience and faster order fulfillment.

 

Ensure your customers receive their orders quickly by developing an effective order fulfillment system. Your fulfillment strategy should include the use of collaborative tools to stay in touch with your suppliers and a good inventory management system to ensure you have the right products when and where you need them.

 

Streamline Payroll

 

Payroll is another major operational task that must be taken early on. It’s one of the most time-consuming items to check off on a frequent basis. A smart move is to automate with time tracking software, which allows for employees to check their schedules and clock in and out with a click. This software may also allow you to create, change and approve scheduling and track employee times from your smartphone, laptop or desktop. Last but not least, payroll software can help you file your payroll taxes, which is something all business owners need to pay close attention to (if you’re new to the world of payroll and payroll taxes, Zenbusiness offers a comprehensive guide for new business owners).

 

Delegate to Free Up Time

 

There’s only so much time in the day, and as a small business owner, you have to make the most of it. As Crowdspring points out, delegating mundane and specialty tasks to freelancers is a great way to free up time so you can work on bigger projects — including those that will help you compete against big brands. You can hire freelancers or agencies to handle all kinds of tasks, from data entry to bookkeeping to administrative tasks. For example, you can find virtual receptionist agencies through online job boards and vet candidates based on their experience and qualifications and how much they charge.

 

Boost Your Online Presence

 

The online visibility of your business is just as important as the location of your brick-and-mortar store. If customers can’t find your business online, there’s a good chance they’ll buy from one of your bigger competitors instead. Work on boosting your web presence so your company appears at the top of local search results. Most importantly, make sure your customers can find the information they’re looking for online, including your store hours, product availability, location, and contact information.

 

Include attractive images on your site that tell a story about what your business is about. Use an online remove background tool that allows you to place your images into a completely new design or environment.

 

Look Professional and Provide Great Service

 

Major retailers fall victim to common customer service issues that cost them many customers every day. For example, big companies often take too long to respond to customers, offer cookie-cutter answers to inquiries, or transfer customers from rep to rep without providing a clear solution to their issues. Due to your smaller size, you can spend more time catering to your customers’ needs, offering a stellar customer service approach that goes above and beyond that of your competitors. Research cited by Help Scout shows that the number one reason customers switch brands is feeling underappreciated.

 

Of course, customer service also extends to the way your business looks to the public. If your business is dirty or disorganized, customers won’t walk away feeling very good about your products or services. To ensure your business stays clean, work with a commercial cleaning company like Complete Care Maintenance that can keep you looking professional.

 

Small business owners often feel like their growth is limited by the presence of big box stores and e-commerce giants, but this is far from true. There are several ways to thrive as a small business owner, even if those major brands seem to be getting bigger every day. Take advantage of your small business strengths — as well as the digital tools and services available to you — and you’ll have more than a fighting chance!

Commercial Cleaning Services to Make Your Business Stand Out

As states throughout the U.S. ease Covid-19 restrictions, business owners are navigating the reopening process. While getting back to the workplace is a welcome change for many people, it presents many unique challenges. Hiring a commercial cleaning service may help your business overcome some of these challenges.

About 80% of small businesses in the U.S. have partially or fully reopened. Still, many expect the impacts of the pandemic to linger. According to a U.S. Chamber of Commerce poll, 55% of business owners believe it will be six to 12 months before the economic climate returns to normal.

One of the most notable impacts of the pandemic is customer expectations with regard to cleanliness. Customers today expect businesses to adhere to strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols and many will walk out if their standards are not met. This is why nearly half of small businesses surveyed in the aforementioned U.S. Chamber of Commerce poll said they plan to increase their cleaning and disinfecting protocols.

One way businesses can meet customer expectations for cleanliness is to hire commercial cleaning services to manage their facilitys’ cleaning needs. For most businesses the advantages of hiring professionals are clear.

How Commercial Cleaning Services Can Help

  • Trained and Dedicated Staff – Rather than absorbing the cost of hiring, training, and managing in-house cleaning crews, many businesses will hire commercial cleaning professionals. Qualified commercial cleaning companies already have trained staff that knows how to clean and disinfect. Properly trained professional cleaning crews follow strict protocols to ensure that surfaces are both clean and sanitized. Plus, their knowledge and experience allow them to hit the ground running.
  • Tools and Equipment – In order to increase cleaning protocols businesses will need to invest in cleaning chemicals, tools, equipment, and protective gear. By hiring a commercial cleaning company they can avoid the initial and ongoing costs associated with those tools and equipment.
  • A Deeper Clean – Well-organized and professional cleaning crews are very good at their jobs. They clean areas that most people would overlook. In addition, commercial cleaning crews are trained to clean properly. They know how to identify and disinfect high-touch surfaces. They understand the dangers of cross-contamination and are trained to mitigate it and they understand the cleaning and disinfecting process.
  • Consumer Perceptions – Most consumers believe that commercial cleaning crews are better at cleaning than a company’s regular staff and that perception is generally true. Even with a well-defined training program and dedicated staff, it is unlikely that your day-to-day employee will match the cleaning standards of a commercial cleaning crew.

Advertising Your Commitment to Cleanliness

Regardless if you opt to perform cleaning and disinfecting duties in-house or hire a commercial cleaning company, there are costs involved. It is important for businesses to ensure that those costs realize some return on investment. Here are some ways that you can advertise your commitment to cleanliness and help your business stand out:

  • Ask For or Purchase Signage – Many commercial cleaning companies will provide window stickers or signage that can help you promote your cleaning protocols. Adding a simple sign at the entrance to your establishment that reads “Cleaned and Sanitized by Complete Care Maintenance” can help your customers and staff to feel safer.
  • Hire Porter and Matron Services – Ask your commercial cleaning company if they offer porter and matron services. These services provide onsite cleaning staff to maintain your facility’s cleanliness during regular business hours. There is no better way to advertise your commitment to cleanliness than having cleaning staff actively working during business hours.
  • Provide PPE and Hand Sanitizer – Providing disposable face masks and well-marked hand sanitizing stations throughout your establishment lets customers know that you care about their well-being. Encourage your staff to utilize these facilities as well.

cutting costs

Cutting Costs To Improve Customer Experience

Cutting costs to improve customer experience sounds like an oxymoron. The reality for some businesses is that many of the expenses they incur through day-to-day operations can be slashed or even eliminated. The real trick to cutting costs is determining which expenses can be cut without negatively impacting the customers’ experience. Just as important is knowing which costs are essential to an excellent customer experience.

Cutting Costs – Areas To Address

Believe it or not, there are expenses incurred in everyday operations that you need not incur. And while finding them can be tricky, Complete Care Maintenance is here to help. We have put together a list of five areas of your business where you should look to start cutting costs.

Energy Usage

Energy costs represent a major expense for any business. Luckily, energy costs are also one of the easiest to reduce. While we understand that you need to keep the lights on, there are some fairly simple changes that you can make that will help reduce your energy costs and your environmental footprint.

  • Turn off the lights. Encourage your staff and customers to flip off the light switch when leaving an empty office, restroom, or breakroom. You’ll be surprised how much this simple measure can reduce your energy costs.
  • Shut down computers and other office equipment at night. Making a habit of shutting down office machines before leaving the office for the night can have a significant effect on your energy expenditures and can reduce wear and tear on your office machinery.
  • Switch to energy-efficient L.E.D. lightbulbs. L.E.D. lightbulbs are far more efficient than traditional bulbs. While they may cost more upfront, they last longer than traditional lightbulbs and represent one of the easiest ways of cutting costs.

Going Paperless

For many businesses, the idea of going ‘paperless’ is a little beyond their grasp. After all, there are some situations where paper is a necessary commodity but there are still ways that you can reduce your use of paper. Modern software is available that can manage payroll, customer relations, and other traditionally documented tasks. In addition to cutting costs, switching to computer-based processes can save time and improve productivity – not to mention reducing your environmental impact.

Purchasing Supplies

If you find yourself running to the Office Depot every time your ink pen goes dry, you can probably do a better job of purchasing supplies. Consider buying office supplies, cleaning supplies, and restroom and breakroom supplies in bulk. Bulk purchasing reduces the cost per unit and eliminates the time expended making trips to the store. Of course, buying in bulk also requires storage space and available cash flow, but it can be a valuable cost-cutting tool.

Areas To Avoid When Cutting Costs

When putting in place your cost-cutting strategy it is important to recognize that some areas of operation are just too important to your bottom line. In fact, as opposed to cutting costs in these areas, you may want to consider investing more in their optimization. Some areas to avoid when cutting costs are listed below.

Staffing and Training

Customer service is an essential ingredient for any successful business and cutting costs in staffing and employee training is a bad idea. In fact, it may make more sense to invest some of your cost-cutting savings in improved training programs for your staff. A well-trained and motivated staff can improve efficiency, customer relations, and your bottom line.

Cleaning and Sanitizing

At a time when the world is in year two of an ongoing pandemic protecting the health of your staff and customers is paramount. Today’s customers are hyper-vigilant about the cleanliness of businesses that they patronize. In fact, a whopping 92% of consumers surveyed said that the cleanliness of a business is a major factor in their decision to return. No business can afford to lose customers due to a lack of cleaning and sanitizing. Rather than cutting costs in this area, we believe you should invest in commercial cleaning services that will help protect you, your staff, and your clientele.

Commercial Cleaning In a Post-Pandemic World

If your business did not utilize commercial cleaning services pre-pandemic, changing consumer behaviors may have you rethinking your cleaning strategy. Consumers are wary about venturing out into public spaces even as Covid-19’s grip on our society loosens. The pandemic has opened people’s eyes as to how easily germs can be spread, especially in shared public spaces. This has necessitated much stricter cleaning and disinfecting protocols for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Commercial Cleaning Is The New Normal

It is no longer enough to tell consumers that you are following strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols, you have to show them that you are. In a post-pandemic world, consumers expect to see visible evidence of cleaning and disinfecting protocols being put into practice. In order for businesses to regain consumer trust, they will need to employ dedicated cleaning personnel to work during normal business hours.

Consumers want to see someone wiping down door handles, shopping carts, checkout counters, and other high-touch surfaces.  They want to see restrooms that are sparkling clean, hand sanitizers in place and being used, and onsite cleaning personnel visibly cleaning. Daily cleaning is no longer enough. Constant, visible cleaning is the new expectation, and businesses that fail in this regard may fail altogether.

Many businesses see this as an opportunity to attract more customers by providing a cleaner environment than their competitors. Many are hiring commercial cleaning services, janitorial services, and day porters to market their cleaning protocols as part of the customer experience.

Building Employee Trust

It’s not just consumers that have raised the standards when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene, employees are also changing the way they look at the workplace. With many employees working from home during the pandemic, the desire to go back to the office is tempered by the uncertainty of a post-pandemic world. Employees need to feel confident that their employers are doing everything within their power to provide a clean and sanitary workplace.

This means that in addition to employing visible cleaners during business hours, employers are also employing commercial cleaning services to deep clean their premises after hours. This helps to ease the anxiety that some employees may feel with regard to returning to the workplace. Knowing that when you arrive to work in the morning you will be entering a workplace that has been professionally cleaned and sanitized makes returning to work less stressful for everyone.

The Shift To Commercial Cleaning Brings Long-term Benefits

It is important to realize that the shift in people’s behavior with regard to cleanliness is not a bad thing. If there is a silver lining to the recent pandemic, it is that we now live in a much cleaner world. People are far more concerned about catching and spreading germs than ever before and that fear has translated into better cleaning and hygiene protocols for all of us.

The fact that the cleanliness of a business has taken a primary role in how businesses attract consumers is also a very good thing. The more businesses recognize the importance of operating a clean and sanitary establishment, the safer shared public spaces will become and that is better for everyone.

Office Cleaning: 5 Things Missing From Your Checklist

Whether you use an in-house office cleaning staff or outsource your cleaning to a professional office cleaning company, there are some areas in every office environment that often get overlooked. If you outsource your office cleaning and find that these areas are not being cleaned, it’s time to fire your commercial cleaning company. If you use in-house cleaning staff be sure to add these five areas to your office cleaning checklist.

Buttons, Switches, Knobs, and Handles

Take a moment to have a good look around your office building. Can you count the number of knobs, handles, buttons, and switches? Chances are that even the most meticulous office manager will miss a few of these ubiquitous items. There are the obvious ones like doorknobs and handles, light switches, and elevator buttons, but what about the buttons on the office phone, the fax machine, or the office printer. Then there are the microwave and refrigerator door handles, water cooler buttons, sink fixtures, drawer pulls, and countless others.

These items get touched multiple times throughout the day and by multiple individuals. They may not be obvious high-touch surfaces, but high-touch surfaces they are, and the average microwave door handle or fax machine button can harbor as many germs as the average toilet seat! Make sure you add these items to your office cleaning checklist.

Trash Cans

Surely your office cleaning staff regularly empties the trash receptacles throughout your office, but do they clean and disinfect them? Trash cans are another breeding ground for germs and bacteria that can cause foul odors and an unhealthy environment for you and your staff. Add trash cans to your office cleaning checklist to ensure that they get cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis. You will enjoy an odor-free office environment and your clients will appreciate the attention to detail.

Behind Appliances and Office Machines

The old saying goes: Out of sight, out of mind. This is especially true for these areas in your office. When was the last time you moved the microwave in the breakroom or looked behind the office printer? You might be surprised at how much dust and debris has accumulated over time. Breakroom and kitchen appliances can build up enough dirt, dust, and liquid to create a sticky, stinky sludge, that if left unchecked can lead to nasty odors and damaged floors. Electronic office equipment is highly susceptible to overheating when dust accumulates and this can significantly reduce its useful lifespan. Adding these hidden areas to your office checklist not only ensures a cleaner environment but can save you thousands in repair and replacement costs.

Ceiling Fans and Light Fixtures

If you can’t remember the last time you cleaned the ceiling fans and light fixtures in your office building, you are not alone. These are easily some of the most overlooked items when it comes to office cleaning. The fact is that like your kitchen appliances and office machines, the buildup of dust and dirt causes them to work harder and at higher operating temperatures. This shortens their useful lifespan and requires more frequent replacement. In addition, ceiling fans not only gather dust but also disperse it every time you turn on the fan, sending dust mites and allergens into the air. Putting these on your office cleaning checklist will result in cleaner air and longer-lasting fixtures.

Air Vents

Speaking of cleaner air, when was the last time you took a good look at the air vents in your office? For many of us, the answer to that question is ‘Umm, never’. The air vents in your office building should be dusted on a regular basis to avoid dispersing excess dust and allergens throughout the building. In addition, you should have your ductwork professionally cleaned at least semi-annually to avoid the buildup of harmful allergens and molds. It only takes a few seconds to dust an air vent and it can have a significant impact on the overall quality of air in your office.

Wondering What Else Is Missing From Your Office Cleaning Checklist?

If you are concerned about the health and safety of your staff and customers, it is important that you maintain a healthy office environment. In the post-pandemic world, your staff and customers expect nothing less. Complete Care Maintenance can help you build a comprehensive office cleaning checklist and can even provide professional office cleaning service at a reasonable cost.

cross-contamination

Avoid Cross-Contamination When Cleaning

Oftentimes the spread of germs is facilitated by cross-contamination. Cross-contamination is defined as the transfer of bacteria or other microorganisms from one substance to another. Surprisingly, cross-contamination often occurs as a result of cleaning. While this may sound counter-intuitive, poor cleaning practices are a major source of cross-contamination. Professional cleaning companies recognize this fact and put in place procedures and protocols that are designed to mitigate the risk of cross-contamination.

How To Avoid Cross-Contamination When Cleaning

Use Smart Cleaning Processes – Putting cleaning processes in place helps ensure that cleaning duties are performed in a consistent manner. Smart cleaning processes take into consideration the risk of cross-contamination and focuses on taking steps to prevent it.

  1. Always start with a clean pair of gloves and fresh cleaning equipment.
  2. Clean one area at a time.
  3. Always clean from top to bottom, wiping down surfaces with an effective cleaning solution.
  4. Spray disinfectant on all high-touch surfaces like desks, phones, doorknobs and push plates, elevator buttons, counters, railings, and all bathroom surfaces, following manufacturer recommendations for saturation and dwell time.
  5. Finally, clean the floor starting from an inside corner and working your way toward the exit.
  6. Place cleaning cloths, mop heads, and other used cleaning tools in a plastic bag and dispose of your gloves when you finish.
  7. Repeat this process for every area that you clean, never using the same cleaning cloths, mop heads, etc.

Color Code Your Cleaning Supplies – Color coding cleaning supplies is an excellent way to reduce cross-contamination. For instance, always having ample supplies of cleaning cloths in pre-defined colors can help cleaning crews avoid using the same cloth in two distinctly different areas. A simple color-coding system might look like this:

  • Red – Red cloths and equipment marked in red are designated for high-risk areas like toilets and urinals.
  • Yellow – Yellow cloths and equipment are designated for medium-risk surfaces like restroom sinks and countertops.
  • Green –  Green is designated for lower-risk areas such as office areas and non-prep food surfaces.
  • Blue – Blue cleaning supplies are reserved for low-risk surfaces like glass and mirrors.

With a color-coded system like this, you can avoid you can mitigate cross-contamination and more easily monitor workers to ensure they are following protocols.

Choose The Right Tools –  Choosing microfiber over traditional cloths and mop heads is a big step forward in reducing cost-contamination. Traditional cleaning cloths and mop heads are made from absorbent cotton fiber. One study conducted by the University of California Davis Medical Center in collaboration with the EPA that traditional wet loop mops reduced bacteria by 30%, while microfiber mop heads showed a 99% reduction in bacteria.

Microfiber traps bacteria in the fibers of the mop while wet loop mops capture bacteria in the water molecules. Every time a wet loop mop gets dunked in a body of water the bacteria are released, only to be redistributed on the surface being cleaned. Microfiber employs positively charged particles to trap dust particles which is where the bacteria hide. It is a much more effective method for removing bacteria from surfaces.

Like microfiber Hepa filters do a better job of trapping dust particles that harbor germs and bacteria. Traditional vacuums typically employ a cotton or polyester fiber filter that fails to hold the dust as well as the fiberglass and charcoal found in a Hepa filter. Selecting a Hepa filter vacuum will help reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

Segregate Cleaning Staff – Assigning designated staff members to areas throughout your facility is a great way to mitigate cross-contamination. Allowing the same individual to clean the restroom and the kitchen can easily create cross-contamination concerns.

People, whether they realize it or not can collect and carry germs and bacteria on their clothing, shoes, hands, and hair. Limiting cleaning crew staff to designated areas helps to reduce the risk of transmission.

Employ A Commercial Cleaning Company – A well-organized and well-managed commercial cleaning company will already have these protocols and procedures in place. They will be fully versed in the use of proper chemicals and equipment, and they understand how to clean and disinfect virtually any surface.

Evaluating Cleaning Company Performance

As a business owner or facility manager, it is easy to get caught up in the fast-talking promises of a cleaning company sales representative. After all, they are trying to sell you a service. They are not going to say anything negative about their cleaning services. And while it is important for you to listen to what they have to offer, ask questions, and ensure that their services align with your needs, it is just as important to monitor their performance over time.

Oftentimes, commercial cleaning companies will perform exceptionally well during the ‘honeymoon’ period of your relationship. As time wears on, many cleaning companies become complacent, turnover staff, or change management. This can result in a reduction in standards, untrustworthy cleaning crews, and less bang for your buck.

So, How Can You Tell If Your Cleaning Company Is Delivering On Their Promises?’

Time – If your cleaning crew is chronically late, something is not right. If your cleaning crews are leaving early, something is not right. If your cleaning crew is not putting in the time necessary to fully clean your facility, you are getting robbed. A well-managed cleaning crew will be on time every time, will take the time to do their job well, and will fulfill the hours they are contracted to work.

Preparedness –  A well-managed cleaning company will ensure that its cleaning crews are always well-prepared. They will bring with them all the necessary materials, safety equipment, and cleaning tools and products. You should never see a professional cleaning crew reusing cleaning cloths or mop heads.

Processes and Procedures – Does your cleaning crew follow a familiar process every time they clean? Can you predict which areas will get cleaned first, how long it will take, and what chemicals and cleaning tools will be used? That is a process or procedure being followed and all professional cleaning companies should have standardized processes and procedures in place.

Safety Is a Priority – A well-trained cleaning staff will follow prescribed safety protocols. You should never see wet floors without caution signs, cleaning crews horsing around, or any type of behavior that endangers, you, your staff, your customers, or the cleaning crew..

 Familiar Faces – Do you recognize the staff that cleans your facility? A smart commercial cleaning company is very good at retaining staff. They understand that it is far more costly to vet and train new staff than it is to retain tenured staff. If you recognize the people that come to clean your facility on a regular basis, your cleaning company is likely doing a great job.

Accountability – Does your cleaning crew have a leader, an individual that you have been introduced to and is available if there are issues or concerns. A quality commercial cleaning company will always assign a crew leader or manager who is willing to take responsibility for the actions of their crew.

Proactive Management – A customer-centric commercial cleaning company has a management staff that is proactive. They follow up with their customers on a regular basis to ensure that they are happy with the service, ask if there is anything more they can do, and make themselves available in the event that issues arise.

cleaning and disinfecting

Cleaning And Disinfecting: The New Normal

There is no denying it. The new normal demands that everyone steps up their cleaning and disinfecting protocols and procedures.

Let’s put all of our cards on the table and stop him-hawing around. There is no denying that the Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in a new normal for all of us and change is in the air. There is no longer time for a wait-and-see mentality. We have waited. We have seen. The elephant in the room can no longer be ignored.

We can not walk into a grocery store without noticing how Covid-19 has changed the world in which we live. Every interaction we have, every building we enter, every time we venture out in public, it is another environment we have been exposed to, another risk we have taken.  We have risked not just our own safety, but the safety of our family, friends, and neighbors. Everywhere we go, we are wary of the unseen danger.

People need to feel safe in these unprecedented times and as facility managers and business owners, we play a key role in adjusting to the new normal. We must help people to feel safe. It is both social responsibility and business imperative.

Cleaning And Disinfecting Makes People Feel Safe

The first step in making people feel safe in your facility is to create and implement a cleaning and disinfecting program that addresses peoples’ concerns. Your program should the latest safety, infection control, and cleaning protocols recommended in official guidance from the CDC, WHO, and OSHA. Your program should utilize EPA-recommended cleaning agents and disinfectants that are designated for use against Covid-19. You should also provide clear policies and procedures for cleaning and disinfecting your facility and include training for all employees on the proper handling, dwell times, and use of all cleaning chemicals and disinfectants.

That is a lot of work and it will take time and money to implement properly. There is the cost of chemicals and cleaning equipment, time spent researching and training staff on proper use, and safety protocols. And, of course, the time your staff will spend doing the actual cleaning and disinfecting – time they will not be spending doing the work you pay them to do.

If you do not have robust cleaning and disinfecting protocols already in place, starting from scratch may not be a viable option. You may find it more efficient and less costly to hire a reputable commercial cleaning company that has the equipment and know-how to hit the ground running.

Qualified commercial cleaning companies already have the trained staff, the proper procedures and protocols, and the right tools and chemicals, and the knowledge and experience to clean and disinfect your facility effectively. All this adds up to reduced costs for you, faster time to implementation, improved employee productivity, and favorable public perception for your business.

The new normal demands that business owners and facility managers make cleaning and disinfecting an integral part of the customer service offerings. Customers, business partners, and staff now consider health and safety a top priority and it is your job to make them feel safe. This shift in public perception is not likely to go away anytime soon and the sooner you put a rigorous cleaning and disinfecting program in place, the better.
