It’s officially the season of gift-giving and family gatherings. As we near Christmas and New Year’s Eve, your business is most likely going to close for a few days to give yourself and your employees some much-needed family time. However, before you close, you must deep clean your business. Leaving your workspace dirty can attract bugs and potentially cause an infestation while everyone is gone. Additionally, a deep cleaning ensures that you and your employees will return to an organized and spotless work environment, which will promote productivity in time for the new year. To help you get started on your pre-holiday cleaning regimen, we listed our best pre-holiday cleaning tips.
Encourage employees to clean out their desks:
By the end of the year, there’s probably loads of paperwork and junk within your office’s desks that no longer serves a purpose. Therefore, to have a fresh start in 2022, we suggest encouraging your employees to clear out anything they no longer need from their workspace.
Even though you’re preparing to leave your office for some time, it’s still convenient to refill everything you and your employees use throughout the day. This gives you one less thing to do when you return to the office. Items to refill should include hand soap, toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, printer paper, and anything else that comes to mind.
Empty the fridge:
The last thing you’ll want to return to after your holiday break is a fridge filled with rotten food. Therefore, as a part of your pre-holiday cleaning, make sure to throw out or take home any of the food in your office fridge.
Clean inside the microwave:
We’ll take a wild guess that most of your employees bring microwavable foods for lunch. Therefore, your office microwave probably gets a lot of use, and in turn, gets really dirty. We suggest cleaning the inside of your microwave with a mixture of white vinegar and water to eliminate any food stains.
Take out all the trash:
Whatever you do, do not leave trash in your trash cans over the holidays. If there happens to be food in your garbage cans, it will stink up the whole office, especially if you’re planning on turning off your HVAC system. A quick trip to the dumpster is all you need to prevent coming back to a stinky office.
We hope this helped you see the importance of deep cleaning before you and your employees head out for the holidays. No one wants to return to a smelly, disorganized, or infested office.
