Why your venue NEEDS professional cleaners.

“I think we’re just going to hire our own cleaners for the bar.”

This is the most common statement I come up across when trying to sell JCS Cleaning NW Ltd to bars & clubs. It’s sometimes hard to explain just how important having professional cleaners in your venue can be but it’s essential. If your bar gets a reputation for grotty toilets or being a place where your feet stick to the floor then it doesn’t matter how many fancy cocktails you have on the menu, you’re not going to be projecting the image you want.

Prior to working for JCS, I spent many years working as a barmaid and a waitress. A fantastic waitress I may have been but I fail miserably as a cleaner. When I mopped up in a morning we would have to open half an hour late to allow the floor to dry as I had been a bit enthusiastic chucking water around. I’d be sent to Home & Bargain to pick up spray and other household cleaning products to tackle the toilets. No one minded that when I was sweeping up I was literally just sweeping stuff out sight. The bar I worked in may have appeared to be relatively clean at a glance but many a times I’d behind the bar and spot a cockroach run across the floor – not what you need on a busy Friday night shift.

With professional cleaning companies like JCS, you get fully trained and insured cleaners assigned to your venue, using scientifically designed cleaning products which ensure the best results for a sparkling finish. With many venues opening and spending thousands on their interior, such as marble flooring, it is vital owners have the right people in place to protect their investment. One of the most common thing we see is wooden floors being cleaned incorrectly. Inexperienced cleaners are sloshing hot soapy water across them and thinking it’s fine – it’s not. Within months, a black, sticky residue will appear and build up, eventually requiring the floor the be replaced. We know how to deal with every type of floor going – we help protect your investment for many years to go. It is a lot cheaper to maintain rather than refurbish.

From my experience in the leisure industry, the last thing you want as a bar manager is to be organising a cleaning rota, buying materials, worrying about staff sicknesses and holidays and checking to see if your venue is clean. That’s one of the main benefits of working with JCS Cleaning NW Ltd – we take care of everything and leave you to focus on you business.

After all, you wouldn’t want to have a cleaner, with no bar experience, pulling pints on a busy weekend shift, would you? So why not take the same approach to your cleaning.
