When thinking about how to boost your business’ sales, what comes to mind first? We’ll bet that it’s not your windows, but here’s why it should be.
You may consider reviewing your marketing plan, retraining your customer service team, or mixing-up your product line.
But in fact, the answer could be a lot simpler than that. It may be that all you need to do is spruce up your shopfront.
The truth is that when it comes to your shopfront, appearance does matter. You could have the most life-changing products and first class customer service team, but if your shopfront isn’t tempting people in then they’ll never know.
Here’s how a clean and well-maintained shopfront could be the simple solution to increasing sales.
Being a business located in a city centre has many benefits but can take its toll on your windows.
Businesses in the city are likely to require more frequent window cleaning than those in more rural areas due to the activities going on around them.
Why do city windows get dirtier quicker?
Cities are big and busy places, and whilst it can be great to be right in the thick of all the action, city-life can also be a bit noisy, smelly and dirty.
Just some of the factors that cause windows in the city to get dirty quicker than those in quieter areas include pollution, construction, roadworks, and those pesky pigeons.
Cities usually experience high levels of traffic, causing high levels of pollutants, dirt and dust in the air, all of which will cling to your property’s windows.
At Archer Window Cleaning, we are always proud of the high-quality services our staff deliver on the projects they work on. We also find that our staff go above and beyond to help protect and support those around them and they deserve to be acknowledged for their courage and bravery. Two of our window cleaners demonstrated their bravery and courage by intervening in an attack in Liverpool.
You can read the full story from The Bolton News below:
Two heroic Bolton window cleaners rushed to the aid of a woman being attacked.
John Stephens, 38, and a colleague were working on a job in a Liverpool back street when they heard screaming.
“At first I thought it was just students messing around, but the second scream was blood-curdling and we knew it was something serious,” said Mr Stephens, of Great Lever.
Without a thought for their own safety, they rushed to see what the noise was and found a man attacking a woman who was on her way to work.

Our dedication to delivering excellence was recognised in 2013 when we were awarded ‘UK Window Cleaning Company of the Year 2013’ at The Cleaning Show, held by The Federation of Window Cleaners.
Whilst our success has meant that we have grown and expanded beyond Manchester, the heart of our business still lies in this city. We have clients based all over the city, from Ancoats to Trafford, from Sale to Central Manchester.
Whilst dirty windows may not directly influence your business’ success, they could be having more of an impact than you realise.
First impressions count; and at Archer Window Cleaning we help businesses to make a sparkling first impression, to give them the best chance of success.
Whilst the cleanliness of your windows may seem like a trivial detail and not feature prominently on your to-do list, a build-up of dirt and grimy streaks can have a psychological impact on both employees working inside your building and potential customers viewing your business from outside.
Just a few of the presumptions people may make about your business if your premises have dirty windows include:
- You’re not very professional.
- You don’t have the budget to get them cleaned.
- You don’t look after your property.
- You’re not bothered what customers or clients think.
- You’re not bothered about your employees’ wellbeing.
