Clean, Clean, Clean your Pub, Club, Bar or Cafe

Its’ that funny time of year when it’s sunny outside but not really warm enough to sit out and certainly when the sun goes down it still gets pretty chilly.  We’re all wondering what to wear and so when I wandered around town yesterday I was still in my boots and felt quite out of place next to a youngster in shorts and a vest top.

It’s the same when we’re thinking about what’s best to do in our pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants.  The garden needs attention and the garden furniture outside could do with renewing – but is it a bit early to start thinking about that yet?  Especially when indoors, the bright spring sunshine is showing up all the paint that needs touching up and the upholstery that’s seen better days.

My suggestion would be to have a blitz on your interior of your pub first, it’s still the place your customers will spend most of their time at the moment.  Throw open the windows and clean them. Ideally, windows should be washed twice a year in your pub, but it's a task most people don't look forward to. Part of what makes window washing such a chore is that homeowners insist on doing it with wadded-up paper towels or newspaper, spray cleaner, and a ton of elbow grease.

"All that rubbing isn't a good idea," says Brent Weingard, owner of Expert Window Cleaners in New York City. "You're just moving dirt around from one spot to another and putting a static charge on the glass, which attracts dust and dirt. As soon as you finish, the window looks dirty again."

As Weingard demonstrates, it's easier and more effective to clean glass like the pros do: with a squeegee and a few other readily available tools. The techniques aren't complicated, he says, and the results may surprise you.

"I don't know of anything that can transform living spaces so well. You don't know what you're missing until you do the windows," says Weingard. He also suggests that you customise your cleaning squeegee to the right size if you’ve got multiple small panes to wash – it will save you hours and hours in the long run.

Pull on the Marigolds and clean, clean clean! Vax the upholstered seat pads on your dining chairs and polish your pub dining tables.  Have a good old go at the carpet and perhaps buy some New Bar Stools  or Bar Chairs  (after all they’re the first things your customers see when they come in the door).
