How To Keep Your Reception Area Clean

A Clean Reception Area

The very first thing that people notice when they enter your business is your reception area. Therefore, it is critical that you keep it clean since it forms the first impression of your company.


Here are a couple of cleaning tips that will help you to keep your reception area clean.

Pay Attention to Your Floors

The reception area of your business is likely the one area that has the most foot traffic on a daily basis. As a result of this, the flooring will likely develop a great deal of wear and tear over time. So, when it is time to clean, you should pay more attention to your reception area’s floors and thoroughly clean them. This means doing floor stripping and waxing or even hiring a professional carpet cleaner.

Reduce Clutter

One thing that can cause your reception area to look bad is clutter. You should keep this area as clutter-free and clean as possible. So, avoid using it as a storage space and limit the number of magazines on your waiting room tables as well as other objects. In the waiting area, there should be a minimal amount of furniture as well as enough counter space for your customers.

Smell Check

You or another employee may not be bothered by cold coffee on the reception desk, but chances are that one of your customers won’t like it. Therefore, you should avoid bad odors in the reception area by reducing how much eating or drinking happens in this space. You should also place a couple of scent diffusers throughout the reception area to ensure it always smells good.


The reception area should have amenities that your customers may require in order to make their stay comfortable. For example, you should have a water dispenser so that they always have access to clean drinking water. It is also a good idea to have a trash bin so that your customers or other visitors can easily get rid of trash when necessary. This will reduce the chances of your customers or visitors littering in your reception area.
