You may be aware of the difference curb appeal can make when buying or selling a home – expanses of green lawn, eye catching flowers and a welcoming entrance can be a real draw when looking at a home. The same goes for showing off your business to its best advantage. Below are a few tips for making the most of your company’s appearance.
Keep it Clean
Make sure you have arrangements in place to keep loose trash picked up and out of site. Provide trashcans in convenient places such as employee courtyards or in parking areas so that people have a place to deposit trash. Keep the lot plowed for accessibility in the winter and hire the quality parking lot sweeper business Washington depends on to keep the lot clean in the summer months.
Fix it Up
Allowing a sagging rain gutter, flaking paint, or other elements to remain in disrepair sends up a red flag to customers or clients that your business is not that important to you. Make necessary repairs, paint and fix up any areas that appear shabby or are in disrepair
Clear and Stylish Signage
Make sure signage is highly visible and in good repair. Any lettering should be large enough to see easily and lettering should be against a contrasting background so it can be read clearly. You might consider lighting the sign as well for added visibility at night. If it has been ten years or more since you got your sign, consider having a new, updated one made.
Curb appeal is as important to a business as to a homeowner. Keep any lawns well manicured and weed free. Trees should be trimmed and not block signs or overhang the entrance or walkways. Potted or hanging flowers can also add a touch of color and texture.
Your income depends, to a degree on the impression you give on-site customers. Present your business professionally and it can pay off in the long run.
