Cleaning Tips for the Holidays
With the winter holidays coming up, offices are getting busier with co-workers and clients getting into the holiday spirit. In the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s easy to forget about the cleanliness of the office. Make sure to keep up appearances so that your work place remains clean and safe this winter. Here are a few places to focus on during your holiday clean-up:
Restrooms are typically used by everyone in the office, so with all the holiday traffic, special attention needs to be paid here. All surfaces should have a thorough clean before the rush of the season. This means everything from floors to toilets, sinks to countertops. By sanitizing these areas you are preventing the spread of germs and infections.
Common areas such as offices, break rooms and lobbies will be getting much more foot traffic than usual. With all the holiday festivities that take place in most offices, there are no small chores. Keep everything sanitized and cleaned to make sure your staff and clients stay healthy and happy. Flooring should be thoroughly cleaned as well as countertops, tables, and chairs. Deep cleaning and routine upkeep will make these areas create a positive first impression with clients.
Decorating is a simple and fun way to fill your office with holiday cheer. Just make sure to keep those decorations safe so they can be enjoyed by everyone. Follow these easy tips when you’re decking the halls:
- Keep ladders and decorations away from power sources. Ensure the ladder is securely placed on the ground before climbing.
- Instead of hammering tacks or nails to hang decorations, use removable clips for safe and easy installation.
- If using lights in your holiday display, reduce fire hazards and save power by using a timer or turning off lights after office hours.
- Prevent tripping by placing cords and decorations in low-traffic areas where they won’t be walked on. Avoid twisting, kinking or crushing cords.
Don’t forget about keeping your office space clean when the holidays arrive. Make sure to keep a routine so that cleaning duties don’t stack up unnecessarily. Stay festive and safe this winter season at your office. From all of us here at Rocky Mountain Manpower, Happy Holidays!
