Selling a commercial property comes with many of the same inherent issues, challenges and niggles associated with the selling of a residential one. When you and your business are contemplating moving locations, whatever the reason, it is absolutely essential to clean the property thoroughly so as to make it as appealing as possible; and to showcase the very best of what the building has to offer.
So, with that in mind, here are the four keys areas that need to be given a thorough clean-up to give your commercial property the best chance of selling quickly.
1. All public spaces
These tend to be the first areas in a commercial property that are seen by visitors and so will go a long way to dictating their first impression. As well as this, it will also paint your business in a very positive light and will immediately showcase that you are a company focused on cleanliness and hygiene. When the public areas are clean and pristine, the estate agent showing the property will be far better placed to promote the building’s benefits. Remember that many people will first view through a street-level window before arranging a viewing, so make sure these are spotless and that the area immediately visible is tidy.
2. Vents, systems and internal equipment
While it is essential to clean the parts of a property that will be viewed by all clients, it is also vital to dedicate time to freshening up areas that are rarely seen by human eyes. Vents and heating systems, for example, accumulate dust and dirt over time, and if left for an extended period, could result in them working inefficiently, and could ultimately lead to people becoming ill. This is especially true in buildings that have housed manufacturing processes of any kind.
It should really go without saying that bathrooms need to be cleaned. Industrial cleaners can make the floors, walls, mirrors and toilets themselves sparkle, and can also make these areas – that can so often harbour unpleasant smells – a pleasant space.
Something that can often fly under the radar is the importance of giving all of the building’s carpets a deep clean. This will ensure not only that all dirt is removed and the original colour of the carpet restored, but will truly reinvigorate the look and feel of the property.
