Happy New Year! Twenty-twenty-one is full of opportunity to get to the next level in business, and this year our goal is to become a household name when it comes to cleaning/maintenance for big box grocery and retail stores.

Here are five reasons why Barmel is your go-to solution when it comes to grocery and retail store cleaning!



We Ensure a Pristine Aura

When it comes to grocery/retail shopping, it’s all about the customer experience. Imagine this for a second, you go to a store for the first time, and the floors are dirty, the lighting is dull, and there’s a terrible smell. Would you shop there? Probably not.

Your store is always giving off an impression, which is why we go to great lengths to ensure cleanliness and exceptional sanitization.


We Increase Your Floor’s Lifespan
It might seem a bit weird, but believe it or not, the first thing a person notices when they walk into a grocery or retail store is the floor. Especially during winter, there’s snow, slush, and salt that gets tracked in from heavy foot traffic, which can damage your flooring if not maintained regularly.

We offer the best floor waxing and cleaning service in the region to not only keep your floor free from harm, which can cost thousands to fix/replace, but also give your floor a shine that will make an impression as soon as customers walk in.


Sparking Windows 24/7
Clean windows are everything when it comes to the overall impression of your business. We provide extensive window cleaning that gives interior and exterior windows a streak-free shine on all display cases and any glass surfaces you may have in the store.

Grocery stores, especially in your deli, meat, and services area, rely on clean glass; otherwise, it gives the impression that your food or products are low quality.


We Eliminate the Spread of Germs!

Imagine if you had a customer come into your store that was sick, touched everything, and then got other people sick because you didn’t hire a cleaning company! It may seem like something that is a “cost,” but it’s actually one of the best investments that you can make as a business because if you’re known for getting people sick, it will cost you a lot more in the long run.

As a big box grocer or retailer, you welcome some of the most traffic out of anyone, which means more high traffic touch points and more risk of spreading unwanted germs/bacteria.

We properly sanitize those touch points so that you don’t have to worry about any issues down the line.


We Get the Job Done Right the First Time!

The reason why so many brands rely on us is for the simple fact that we get it done right the first time. Far too often, we see companies talk the talk and not walk the walk. As a leader in the cleaning industry, we’ve bolstered our reputation with our attention to detail, expertise, and solution-focused mentality to make no job too complex or big for us.


From all of us at Barmel, we hope you have a prosperous 2021 and can’t wait to share with you all of the big things coming.

Keeping Safe This Holiday Season

Keeping Safe this Holiday Season

With December here, it reminds us that holiday shopping is about to be in full swing, and this year as a business owner, it’s important to keep your employees safe during these unprecedented times. 

With COVID-19 hitting a new daily record in Alberta on November 30, 2020 with 1,733 cases, it’s imperative that you, as a business owner, property manager, or landlord, hire a cleaning company to properly disinfect your space. 

Residential, recreational, and business buildings have been the epicenters of contracting the novel virus, and it’s no longer a luxury to hire a cleaning service. Right now, it’s a must-have to ensure the health and well-being of your staff and customers. 

“But why do I need to hire a cleaning company? I can do it myself.” Great question. 

Of course, you can always clean yourself, but that has seemed to be what is causing the deadly spread, according to many local experts. Cross-contamination has become the primary way that COVID-19 has been spreading. 

Spraying a surface with a common cleaning solution, wiping it with a cloth, then using that same cloth to wipe another surface is the most common cross-contamination we see. When you hire us, we use a high-grade germicide that will eradicate any type of bacteria, and rather than a quick spray/wipe, we allow a proper dwell time for ten or more minutes to guarantee a 100% kill claim. 

Residential Buildings 

As a property manager, keeping your residents safe should be your number one priority because in some cases, there are thousands of people that walk through your doors a day, people who have come in from other places and have touched other surfaces. To flatten the curve, deep cleans needs to happen regularly; otherwise, your building could be the next story on the front of the newspaper. 

Unlike most cleaning companies, we go to great lengths to eliminate germs in high traffic areas and on surfaces where you’d least expect contamination. Common areas

like windows, walls, carpets, tiles, and furniture require just as much regular maintenance. 

Recreational Places Open During the Holidays 

If you are the owner of a recreational business and are fortunate enough to be open during this time, it’s imperative that you take extra precautions when cleaning; otherwise, your space could become a hot spot very fast. 

Cross-contamination is the most prominent in recreational facilities, so when you’re cleaning any sort of equipment, because there are so many touch points, focus and attention to detail is extremely important. 

It’s not easy to be the premier cleaning solution in the region, it takes unrelenting focus and careful execution to ensure safety with this extremely contagious virus. 

Think about it this way; would you rather invest in a cleaning solution that will allow your business/residence/building to stay operational, or would you rather “do it yourself” and then be forced to shut down because of an outbreak? 

We’ve been trusted by countless companies across the region for our ability to get it right the first time. Unlike other companies who gauge mediocre service, we give big results for affordable prices so you and yours can stay safe this holiday season. 

From all of us at Barmel, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and hope you all stay safe.
