Office Holiday Clean-Up: What You Can Do Before The Clean-Up Crew

by Dora Lowe

Hiring a cleaning service to take care of your office space during the holiday season is always a good idea. Whether you are planning on throwing an office holiday party or you plan on shutting down for the holiday season, a professional cleaning service can help keep the space spic and span. However, there are a few things you can do to help the holiday cleaning crew.

Ask Your Workers to Organize

Professional cleaning crews are often asked to clean on and around desks. However, they are told not to disturb any of the items found on the desk. Therefore, a lot of clutter can make it hard for the janitorial crew to clean up your desks. Ask your employees to de-clutter and organize their desks before they head out for the holidays.

Put Up a Notice for Massive Fridge Clean Up

Make sure you put up notices around the office and remind your employees to clean their belonging out of the fridge before they leave to enjoy holiday festivities. If your workers are going to be gone for the holidays, leftover foods in the fridge can quickly sour and create a health hazard. Janitorial workers will wipe down the inside and outside of the fridge, but they often want to avoid throwing away something they shouldn't.

Place Plenty of Trash Bins Around the Office

If you plan on throwing a holiday party, you know the janitorial crew will have their work cut out for them the day after. You can make things a bit easier on them by placing plenty of trash bins throughout the space and ensuring your employees throw away their messes. Therefore, the crew can easily come in, grab the trash bags, and discard them. It is impolite to leave cups, plates, and other trash everywhere for the crew to clean.

Leave Detailed Instructions for the Cleaning Crew

If you know the office is going to be empty for the holiday season, it would be a good time to consider a deep cleaning service. Make sure you help the cleaning crew out by leaving a detailed list of instructions. The more detailed you are, the more likely it will be that the janitorial crew can ensure your wants and needs are met.

Contact a professional janitorial service near you to arrange holiday cleaning for your office space. A clean office space promotes health and improved productivity, so it is a worthwhile investment for you and your employees.

Starting Your First Business

There are a lot of things you can do to turn a profit, but none are so rewarding as starting your own business. When you start a business, you can successfully break ground on a new hobby, help a team of people, and do what you can to reach out to others in a positive and uplifting way. I began thinking more seriuosly about business when one of my brothers got into it, and it was really interesting to see how well he did. Although I am not a business owner, I believe you can create a great company if you try hard. Check out these posts to learn why.
