The condition of your business premises has a big impact on how well your business does. The exterior of your business is the first impression that potential customers get of what kind of a business owner you are. While it's important to keep the inside of your business place neat and clean, it's equally important to maintain all aspects of the business that will be seen from the outside. Here are some exterior maintenance tips to improve your business.

Remove Fingerprints

Even with a large handle, your glass business doors likely get many fingerprints on them throughout the day. Customers may avoid using the handles for fear of germs, or children may push the doors open with their unwashed hands. The result can be a grimy, dirty looking door that is unwelcoming.

Your staff will need to remove fingerprints from our glass doors repeatedly during business hours, but with this simple removal hack, it won't take up too much of their time. Just fill a spray bottle with equal parts vinegar and water. Shake well and spritz on the glass. Use a lint-free cloth to remove fingerprints and other spots. Use a clean lint-free cloth to buff to a high sheen.

Repair or Replace Glass

Business window glass is prone to all kinds of damage, including nicks, cracks, fogging and scratches. This can make your business look old and worn, and customers may get the impression that you are a neglectful business owner.

If your business windows look less than new, you can easily have the glass repaired or replaced. A professional window glass company can either repair your business glass or replace it entirely, often in the span of one afternoon. Be sure to specify when your preferred day and time is for the maintenance, since you don't want it to interfere with normal business operations.

Remove Graffiti

Unfortunately, graffiti literally pops up overnight. You may arrive to your business in the morning, only to find that someone has spray painted graffiti on the exterior of your business walls. Graffiti makes your business look unwelcoming and dirty, but you don't have to live with it.

Graffiti paint is hard to get rid of, but not impossible. If the side of your building is painted, you can simply spray paint over the graffiti with the same color as the background wall. If not, you will need to enlist the help of a graffiti removal company. After your call, it's likely they can come out the same day and get your building exterior looking as good as new.

These exterior maintenance tips will help to ensure that your business looks as inviting as possible, thereby bringing in more customers and sales.
