Retail cleaning questions you should ask

Retail cleaning questions you should ask

Here at Daisyclean, we understand that retail cleaning can be a difficult thing to sort out. The first tough thing is never having any time. When you work long hours and the shop is busy with people for most of the day, how are you supposed to find a firm to clean everything? Add to that the fact that you need many types of retail cleaning solutions all at once – the kitchen for the staff, the changing rooms, the carpet and the delivery area out the back – and it’s easy to see why some shops get left behind. Write down your retail cleaning expectations Some people get into a trap. Believing that their retail cleaning wish-list is unfeasible and unrealistic, they choose the first cleaning company they find: a cheap one who are enthusiastic and always on-time, but not necessarily the most qualified for the job. This doesn’t have to be the way things are, though! Daisyclean can help, but before we do, it’d be a good idea for you to sit down and write out your list of needs. It might go something like this: I need the changing rooms cleaned every 3 days very well, so they don’t smell at all and the carpet is perfect. I need the front of the shop free of dust before every day starts. I need the delivery area free of rubbish and carpet debris. I need the windows clean and the kitchen constantly kept tidy and hygienic so that when the area manager comes in, it’s not an embarrassment! Now, why should that be asking too much? It...
Upholstery cleaning makes a difference!

Upholstery cleaning makes a difference!

Cleaning upholstery can be a tricky one – this can particularly be the case if you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing. There may be products out there which can get rid of the stains on sofas, chairs and furniture in a flash, but how do you know that you’re not just masking the smell and providing a short-term solution that will soon return to be a problem? Our upholstery cleaning service is designed to work alongside our comprehensive office cleaning solutions. What does this mean for you in 2014? It means that you can revitalise your furniture with a deep clean that’ll free it of the ghosts of office parties past. Clean upholstery can have a surprising effect Picture this scene: you’ve come to meet a potential new business partner at their HQ, you’ve just sat down, and you’ve found yourself seated on sticky furniture…worse, a strange aroma is emanating from it. This is bad enough, but when you get invited into the boss’s office, you discover a filthy carpet and notice that his chair has a large white mark on it! Ordinarily, you may have been able to let this go, but that sofa you sat on has worked its way into your brain and now there is no forgetting. These things concern you: clean upholstery is invisible and leaves a great impression. Dirty upholstery might point to something else – a lack of concern for business affairs, maybe? Either way, it’s never well received. Economical upholstery maintenance Going back to our first point, have you ever sat down and added-up how much cleaning materials actually cost?...
Quality floor care & cleaning matters

Quality floor care & cleaning matters

Floor care and cleaning isn’t just a case of putting a mop over the floor. While that’s a good start, it goes a lot further than that! Using the most up-to-date technology, Daisyclean specialise in ridding floors of dirt, dust and anything else that shouldn’t be there. It’s not simply a case of cleaning up mess once it’s there, either. Prevention is something we do a lot of. By ensuring that floors are clean and carpets are kept hygienic, we’re making floors last longer. Which is good news, because if you’ve ever needed to have the carpet replaced, you’ll know that that’s a lot of time spent with workmen where your employees should be. Specialist floor care and cleaning for all Got laminate flooring? Is it old or new? Reclaimed wood will need a certain approach, especially if it’s in a listed building. The application of chemicals needs to be carefully considered when it comes to floor cleaning, and while carpets can be cleaned with cheap materials, we like to do it the proper way. We don’t get down to business until we’ve worked out a few crucial things: for example, how the chemicals will affect your flooring and what process is best to keep your flooring looking good for as long as possible.

Daily office cleaning attracts better candidates

Daily office cleaning attracts better candidates

Daily office cleaning is one of those things that many companies promise they will do, but when it comes down to it, other things get in the way. We get that, but at the same time, we know what we’ve been told by those who have used our services. And one of those things may surprise you: daily office cleaning can have a genuine impact on the quality of individuals that your business attracts as employees. Picture the scene: you’ve just arrived at a company’s HQ for your interview. On the job description, it promised a job working for a company who know exactly what they are doing. Yet when you walk into the boss’s office, the bin is over-flowing and the carpet is heavily stained from years’ worth of abuse. You don’t want to form a bad first impression so you ignore it, putting it down to the firm simply being very busy. That’s until you get a tour of the office, where it soon becomes clear that the mess stretches far and wide. Being someone that likes things nice and tidy, this isn’t quite what you were hoping for… Daily office cleaning benefits everyone Then consider the opposite. A firm which benefits from Daisyclean’s fresh and proper daily office cleaning service…a firm whose carpet is clean and whose bins are emptied on a regular basis. On top of all this, the office smells fantastic, giving you a great feeling about who you’ll be working for. Better still, you’re not troubled by the sound of vacuum cleaners on your very first week, because while you’re all having lunch,...
The great benefits of professional carpet cleaning

The great benefits of professional carpet cleaning

Carpet cleaning is often the thing at the office that gets ignored – and with the wash-room and office rooms to worry about, it’s not hard to understand why. When you consider the sheer number of tasks that employees have to manage on a daily basis, it’s hardly surprising that the carpet gets so much abuse. Which brings us to another question: why call in professionals to clean the carpet when you can do it all yourself? Professional carpet cleaning is a long-term solution The answer to that question is simple. For one thing, professional carpet cleaning goes deep. While  more or less anyone can learn how to clean a carpet well, the best results are always had by combining experience with the best technology out there. That’s something we at Daisyclean make a habit of doing, and take very seriously. All our employees have experience with cleaning a range of different carpets and using the machines that are revolutionising this industry. This is important, because every carpet is different and requires a slightly different level of service. Knowing when to stop is important, because you don’t want to waste time. Equally, stop too soon and you won’t get that deep-clean-feel that’s so appreciated. Carpet cleaning at economical prices Value for money is also another big reason why people use our services, of course. It makes much more sense to hire us for a few hours than to purchase expensive equipment that you’re not sure how to handle. So, we’ve mentioned that with professional carpet cleaning, the carpet looks great. But what about the feel? The beauty of top-quality...
