A bank has been a symbol of prosperity and riches for some, may it be in media, games, or the like, banks are known to be prestigious and posh. It should also have this trustworthy vibe that mostly relies on the furnishing as well as how clean the entire place is. Most of the clients are usually in the bank to deposit, get a loan, or for more established people, check the capitals and lenders. All business transactions in bank are always money related, so it should have the appearance of an establishment with integrity and trust.
But what does cleanliness have to do with the bank’s success?
Aside from making your bank stand out compared from the rest, it’s also an establishment wherein people critically judge your capabilities in running a bank. There’s also a belief that people make their impression as fast as 30 seconds upon stepping inside the building. One of the biggest factors would be cleanliness – no one would want to entrust their money in a seedy establishment filled with trash and dust.
Cleaning your bank gives your clients a peace of mind – it makes them think that you take your business seriously. Of course, it goes without saying that your service itself should be five stars as well. While it’s ideal that you have your own janitorial staff, it’s important to contact professional cleaning companies to give your building a proper deep cleaning service.
Locations you need to thoroughly clean:
- The Hallways. Hallways are mostly passed by employees, but some transactions are done in a special room wherein some special clients have to pass by these very halls. While their eyes aren’t really microscopic, it’s important to be detail-oriented to make sure that you don’t miss a spot. This includes waxing the floors, polishing the walls and surfaces, and cleaning the glass windows to make sure it’s free of smudges and prints. For carpeted floors, you need to vacuum the entire thing and even lint roll it to pick up the debris the vacuum couldn’t pick up. Make sure to water the plants and trim them so it wouldn’t get too big to manage.
- Restrooms. This is one of the vital areas for every establishment out there. Bathrooms should always be clean and presentable so it won’t disgust patrons whenever they need to take care of their ‘personal business’. Surfaces like the sink, toilets, and the cubicle doors should always be disinfected and santised throughout the day. The air should always be humidified and if possible, scented, to make sure the lingering smell won’t stay. Cleaning the exhaust fans also help – it will properly ventilate the room to make sure the mixed weird smells won’t stay. It should be cleaned three times a day to make sure the trash won’t heap and the mirrors are still spotless.
- Teller counters. This is probably what people call the ‘hot surface’ since it’s always touched by random people to do business. Here, cash, cheques, and the like pass through these surfaces, and it can also be awfully dirty. Make sure that the counter surface is sanitised and wiped properly as well as the tempered glass are stripped away of smudges and marks. What you can do is provide a sanitiser on each counter to make sure that their hands are clean before and after transaction. Disease spread easily in enclosed areas, so make sure you’re prepared to fend off the germs!
