The Importance of Porters in Winter

Why Do You Need Porters in Winter?

Shopping centers are reliant on their image to maintain a regular flow of customers. As a result, the right porters can make or break them by ensuring that their premises are as clean and professional as they should be. However, this is particularly important in winter because a lack of cleanliness can have even more severe consequences than usual.

How Can a Lack of Cleanliness Cause Problems in Winter?

Here are some examples of how a lack of cleanliness in winter can cause serious problems for even the best shopping centers:

  • In colder temperatures, people keep their windows closed to keep the heat in, which leads right to poorer ventilation of the premises. As a result, shopping centers can be dustier than normal during the winter months, which can make breathing harder than it should be for a significant percentage of the population. Since people have an understandable aversion to breathing difficulties, bad air qualities can cut into expected profits.
  • Hard surfaces are no better than a softer surface such as carpets. In part, this is because snow as well as the salt in snow brought into the premises can wreak havoc on a wide range of flooring materials, including but not limited to tiles, wood, and stone. However, it is also important to note the possibility of hard surfaces becoming slippery as a result of them becoming wet. Slip and fall accidents are no joke. They can cause serious injuries, particularly for those who are most likely to fall in the first place. Worse, slip and fall victims can sue for compensation, which is particularly likely to be successful if shopping centers fail to keep their premises clean and pristine as they are supposed to.
