Indianapolis professional cleaning teams know just how much mess holiday office parties can make (hint: It’s a lot!). Most business owners, on the other hand, are caught by surprise. Once the excitement of party planning takes over, they forget that what goes up inevitably must come down—including wall decorations, displays, and buffets. And let’s not even try to count the spills and crumbs that find their way onto the floor.
If your office is looking even worse for wear than your staff following a succession of holiday parties, you’ve come to the right place. Check out this ultimate holiday cleaning guide for office parties, according to our Indianapolis professional cleaning service.
What You’ll Need
Let’s start with a list of cleaning supplies to make your job easier.
- Extra-strong, large-size trash bags
- Rubber gloves
- An all-purpose cleaner (e.g., Mr. Clean).
- A glass cleaner (Windex)
- Stainless steel cleaner
- Cloths or rags
- A broom and vacuum
- A mop and mop bucket
- A duster
- A toilet bowl brush
Post-Party Office Cleaning, A Step-By-Step Guide
- Collect all of the trash and get it out of the office.
This will remove clutter from your path, making it easier to move around as you clean up. Don’t take all the trash out to the dumpster until you’re done cleaning the office. You’ll likely find a few more things that need throwing away as you clean.
- Dust and wipe surface areas.
You will want to dust the air vents, curtains, baseboards, tables, counters, bookshelves, window sills, etc. If you notice any dried spills (or other stuck-on dirt), wipe them away using your all-purpose cleaner and a damp rag or cloth.
- Check the carpet for spills and stains.
If there are spills, you should engage in spot cleaning as soon as possible. If the stains have already been set, you’ll need to call in an Indianapolis professional cleaning company for carpet cleaning. Never try scrubbing stubborn stains yourself, as you may damage the carpet.
- Clean the kitchen thoroughly.
If you’ve got some, here’s where you need your kitchen cleaning hacks to do the magic. Clean the counters, sinks, and appliances. Make sure to clean out the microwave and fridge (the last thing you want is rotten leftovers stinking up the office). Finally, sweep and mop the floor and leave it to dry.
- Clean out the restrooms.
Before cleaning the restrooms, get a new set of rags/cloths and mop heads. This prevents cross-contamination. Clean out the sink, wipe down the walls, the walls of the stalls, and clean out the toilets. You should also polish the mirror with glass cleaner. Mop the floor before you leave.
