We know that all retail spaces and restaurants are eager to open following lockdown. Lockdown has been a trying time for us all, but for restaurants and retail spaces, it has been an incredibly challenging time. The safe reopening of your business will mean that your life and livelihood can slowly start to get back to normal. However, when will you be able to safely open your shop or restaurant again? And how can you prepare for this reopening to be as safe as possible? Well, today, Cleaning Express is exploring the safe reopening of retail spaces and restaurants and how they can prepare to reopen after lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
When will non-essential shops be reopening?
The current government roadmap states that shops that are not essential could be opening their doors no earlier than 12th April. This is Step 2 of the Roadmap. This includes hairdressers, nail salons, pubs (although customers will have to eat and drink outside) and many other outdoor attractions. 12th April should be a date on every shop-owners calendar to look forward to. However, to safely reopen on this date, there are some very important things to consider that we will talk about below.
When will restaurants be reopening?
For restaurants, the restrictions are expected to be lifted no earlier than 17th May. If everything goes according to plan at this time, restaurants, hotels, and other indoor hospitality venues could open their doors with restrictions in place. These restrictions are laid out in the Covid-Secure guidelines. They must not cater to groups larger than the legal limit, for example. We know that restaurants and retail spaces are raring to open their doors and welcome their customers back. But what can you do to ensure that your space is safe for your customers?
How to prepare to reopen a restaurant or retail space
To safely reopen a restaurant or retail space after lockdown restrictions have been lifted, cleaning is crucial. You must ensure that your restaurant or shop is completely clean and safe. While we are sure that your shop is dust-free and your shelves look great, are you confident that your shop or restaurant is free of bacteria? If you aren’t, Cleaning Express has retail cleaning services, as well as restaurant cleaning that can help ensure that your retail space is safe and ready to reopen for your customers when the government gives you the green light.
Cleaning Express has offered many cleaning services to retail spaces and restaurants over the years. We offer excellent regular cleaning services. Our highly skilled cleaners can empty your bins, dust your shelves, hoover your dining rooms and a great deal more. We are still providing these cleaning services throughout lockdown and will continue to after reopening.
Cleaning Express provides deep cleaning services that are perfect if your shop or restaurant has been closed for some time. These cleaning services will bring your shop or restaurant back to life and ensure that is it dust-free and ready to invite your customers back.
