Gross bathroom floorThink of a business you’ve visited that was dirty inside. I bet at least one jumps to mind right away. What is your overall feeling about that business? Do you like going there? Think about how in the last fifteen years bowling alleys, movie theaters, and gas stations have all been getting cleaner. Why? Because a lot of business owners are learning this fact:

People don’t like dirty places. In fact, people avoid places that are not clean. 

I live near Oklahoma City. There used to be a restaurant here that I loved. It had great food, but I could never understand why it was always empty or why the friends I took there thought it was “just OK.”

Now that I look back, it makes a lot more sense. The problem was simple: It was dirty! The baseboards were caked with grease and grime. The walls were gross. The carpet was dirty.

While I was willing to eat there despite the nastiness, others were not. People don’t like dirty places; they avoided this restaurant, and now it’s closed. It had a good product. But it’s still closed.

Is your workplace dirty? Have you lost customers because it’s not clean? You will lose customers and money if your workplace is dirty. This is something you should think about.
