Office Holiday Party Cleaning

Mess on a table after a party

Posted by ServiceMaster | December 19th, 2018 | Categories : Healthcare Facility Cleaning, Janitorial Services

The holiday season is a busy time of year in Little Rock, Arkansas. Office holiday parties are fun but require setup and cleanup. If your holiday party isn’t going to be too large, gather a committee that will take down decorations, vacuum and move furniture. Ensure the cleanup goes as smoothly as possible with pre-party preparation. Place trash cans throughout the party space, use throw rugs or mats in high traffic areas and protect your furniture with chair covers and table cloths. After the party ends, gather your cleanup committee and use our tips below to help everything run smoothly.

  1. Put Away Perishables

Before you start the cleaning process, make sure perishable items are out of the way and safely stored.

  1. Throw Away Large Trash

Pick up pieces of trash that you won’t be able to vacuum or sweep up later.

  1. Take Down Decorations

Pack up reusable decorations in an air tight container. Dispose of damaged pieces that can’t be reused.

  1. Wipe Down Surfaces

Start by clearing surfaces of any party items and wipe crumbs off tables, chairs and countertops. Next, disinfect these surfaces with spray or wipes.

  1. Vacuum & Mop

Vacuum slowly over high traffic party areas including food stations and hallways. Dirt and crumbs stick to carpet fibers if not removed properly. Mop hard flooring to remove spills, dirt and germs.

  1. Remove Stains

If you find stains on your carpets while vacuuming, treat it right away with a gentle stain remover. Once the stain remover has had a chance to soak into the stain, blot up with a clean cloth and let dry completely. Repeat process if needed.

  1. Move Furniture

Move furniture back to its original pre-party place. Lift heavy furniture carefully to avoid injury and scratches on your hard flooring. Invest in furniture guards to make this process easier.
