Post-Holiday Party Office Cleaning Tips From KleenSweep Cleaning Co.

Holiday office parties are a popular way to wind down the year, celebrate your company’s successes, reward your workers and set a positive tone for the year ahead. Once the party’s over, though, you might have quite a mess on your hands. Our Stow office cleaning professionals can help.

Cluttered desks, leftover food languishing in the office fridge, sticky spills and unsightly bathroom messes are bad for employee morale and customer confidence. They could even pose illness hazards or liability risks.

For small office holiday gatherings, you may be capable of handling the post-party office cleaning on your own. For bigger bashes, it’s probably wise to hire a professional to do the dirty work.

Pre-Holiday Party Tips

You’ll make your post-party office cleaning much easier if you prepare ahead of time. Some pointers to keep in mind:

  • Situate large trash cans in common areas where most people will be gathered.
  • Lay down mats to protect carpeting from stains and limit slip-and-fall risks.
  • Use disposable/recycled tablecloths to make cleanup of food service areas a cinch.

If you know you’re going to need a bit more help to restore your office to business-ready condition, call a Stow office cleaning company several days or weeks in advance to arrange.

After Party Clean-Up

If you aren’t hiring a pro for clean-up, designating a small group of individuals to help after the party is over can make the task easier. You don’t want one person to be stuck handling it all on their own (can easily sap one of goodwill holiday spirit). Give each person a specific task so you can be sure to get the office back in order as quickly as possible.

Some jobs to assign:

  • Trash pickup. Have someone walk around with a large trash bag and collect any garbage like cups, plates, hats and other large disposable items.
  • Remove decorations. If you want to hang onto them for next year, set out a container large enough to hold them all that will make for easy storage.
  • Sanitize. Disinfect all surfaces – desks, chairs, counters and any other surface that was used during the course of the party.
  • Spot treat any spills or stains. Clean spills right away. This is important not only to reduce the risk of staining, but also the potential for a slip-and-fall accident.
  • Mop. Any hard floor or tiled areas should be swept and mopped, especially if it had a lot of foot traffic during the party.
  • Don’t forget the bathrooms! Sanitize and disinfect the restroom – all surfaces. Refill the soap, paper towels and toilet paper so you won’t need to worry about it when employees return ready for work.
