Post-Holiday/New Year Office Cleaning Tips

Trending Post

The workplace could get somewhat chaotic after winter holiday gatherings. Once the holidays have passed and the chaos has subsided, you’ll be able to take a deep breath and figure out what needs cleaning.

Restoring order to your workspace is a great way to kick off the new year. A few pointers to get you started on the workplace cleaning that is necessary for the new year and the aftermath of the holidays:

Remove All The Holiday Décor

Take down all of the holiday decorations as soon as the season ends. Before the new year begins, it’s a good idea to pack up your belongings so you can start the year with less stress and more clarity. For next year, make sure to properly dispose of the Christmas tree, wreaths, and garlands in an eco-friendly manner.

Don’t forget to pack up all of the ornaments, lights, and seasonal decor.  Check for and remove any dust, dirt, or debris that may have fallen during the cleanup process once everything is packed away.

Clean The Kitchen/Lunchroom

The kitchen and lunchroom will need to be cleaned very well because of all the holiday parties and food that gets brought to work. Do not forget to:

  • Clean and germ-free everything.
  • Clean the fridge and freezer on the inside and outside.
  • Get rid of any food that’s left over.
  • Clean the microwaves inside and outside.
  • Clean the sink and the area under it.
  • Clean up the inside and outside of cabinets and drawers
  • Sweep, mop, or vacuum the floor.

Make the office kitchen/lunchroom clean and ready for the new year. Wipe appliances and surfaces with a disinfecting cleaner or vinegar and water with a microfiber cloth. There are also natural cleansers that help clean and deodorize your office kitchen/lunchroom.

Make The Toilets Clean

When cleaning the bathrooms in the office, make sure you use the right cleaners to get rid of dirt and grime that looks bad and germs that could be there. For a complete commercial cleaning, you should:

  • Clean and sanitize all high-touch areas, like toilets, urinals, sinks, dispensers, door handles, and more.
  • Clear out the toilet and urinals of any trash that is in or near them. A multi-purpose cleaner or cleaner/disinfectant can get rid of all the dirt you can see.
  • Clean bathroom walls and stalls in spots to get rid of dirt that you can see. Apply the cleaner or disinfectant to throwaway microfiber cloths, then sweep and mop the floors.
  • Bring back things like soap, hand towels, and toilet paper.
  • Clean out all of the trash cans.

Clean The Floors

The winter months make it more likely for people to bring water, mud, and other stuff into the office. This can stain, darken, and wear down some types of floors faster. In addition to making your office look bad, this can also put your employees and guests in danger.

 Following a full-service approach that is tailored to your unique flooring needs is the best way to take care of your floors and do mold remediation after the holidays and all through the winter. When you hire a professional cleaning company to do regular cleaning, this service is something you might want to think about.
