Clean up after Christmas and the New Year

Cleaning is not always the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to the holiday season. Some businesses are open for Christmas and the New Year, while others have a busy few weeks leading up to their closure. There are always lots of fun activities and Christmas parties to enjoy.

Many business owners hire commercial cleaning services during this time to handle the extra cleaning requirements. Here are some more handy tips to help you manage the Christmas and New Year clean-up.

Prepare and plan

It is always wise to prepare ahead of time. It is important to plan Christmas and New Year’s activities. Also, the staff roster should be in place well in advance. You will know when events are taking place and who is available to clean up.

You might consider hiring a commercial cleaning service to do the cleanup after your Christmas party. You can also inform your regular cleaning staff about the additional work that will be created.

It would be best if you also had air fresheners and odor neutralizers handy for cleaning up after the party. Alcohol and food smells may linger in the office, especially if it is closed over the holiday break. We recommend using natural, eco-friendly air cleaners and odor eliminators that are not harmful to the environment. Be sure to have enough bins or bags for recycling and rubbish before the party.

During this period, you may also see some changes in your schedule for rubbish and recycling collections. Check if public holidays will affect your curbside service if you have a business or an office that uses it. You should dispose of all rubbish and recyclables if your business will be closed during the holidays. This will prevent odors or attract flies. It’s not something you want to see when the new year comes around!

While everyone is on vacation, you might plan to do some maintenance. You might want to do some recarpeting or repainting. It’s important to combine all maintenance work into a big cleanup at the end of the year.

Keep clutter under control.

If you are in the hospitality industry and have to remain open during the holidays, it may only be a few short days that you can spend cleaning and organizing. Keep clutter and mess under control throughout the year and, in particular, the months before the busy holiday season.

By reducing clutter and mess, you can make the holiday cleaning easier. Effective storage solutions ensure that your workspaces are not covered in paper, utensils, tools, or stationery. It is much easier to clean the surfaces, as they will be free of clutter.

Working as a Team

You might have to gather your employees to assist you if a commercial cleaning team is not within everyone’s budget. Have your staff tidy up and clean their desks or workspaces before they leave. The communal areas can be cleaned if all work areas have been cleaned.

Most people will not volunteer to do the cleaning at the end of the year or after Christmas. A cleaning schedule for these areas ensures that all the work gets done. Many hands make light work! Staff members who help with cleaning can be motivated by a morning tea or a coffee shout!

Call the professionals

It can be a big job to clean up after Christmas or at the end of the year, especially if your building is large. Cleaning services can be very helpful during this season since they do most of the work. You can then focus on preparing your business for the busy season.
