Office Cleaning tips for the New Year 2018
8th January 2018
Your work life can get hectic during the holidays season but one easy thing that should can be managed is your office cleaning service. Not all offices run the same, so you need to be very open with your commercial cleaning company to make sure you’re on the same page. That way, this integral part of your Corporate Cleaning office cleaning services will continue as normal. You’ll be able to make sure that the office remains in a clean and healthy state to keep you productive during the hectic season or have a break while it is closed. This is also an excellent time to get extra services completed that are too difficult to organise when you have an office full of staff such as carpet cleaning and window cleaning.

Every office and their cleaning requirements are different. Some are open 365 days a year no matter what, while other offices are closed for two weeks during the Christmas/New Year holiday period. There’s no way for Corporate Cleaning Services to know that information unless it has been provided to us.
Your holiday schedule could affect the current schedule you have in place with us, your commercial cleaning company. This could not only affect the days that your cleaners are coming in, but also the tasks that they are doing. If you work with Corporate Cleaning Services and speak openly about your holiday hours and what services you expect during that time, it will benefit both parties. This with ensure that you’ll be coming into the clean office that you expect.
Office Cleaning Task Corporate Cleaning Services recommends before closing the office
What’s in your office fridge? Is it just everyone’s lunch for the day or does there tend to be food left in there? If there’s food left in the fridge often, take a look for anything perishable. If your office is going to be closed for 2 weeks, are you going to want to leave a tuna sandwich, cut cucumbers or half an avocado in there?
Make sure this is something that you and your staff are looking after, or if you would prefer that Corporate Cleaning Services are responsible for your fridges, make sure this has been included in your cleaning schedule. Your employee fridge is one of the most important things to keep clean as that directly affects the health of your staff. Take it upon yourself to make sure your perishables are out of the fridge, that way everyone can do their part before they leave on holidays.
Another piece of your office that can be easily overlooked are the garbage bins. If your office is open during the holiday season, your garbage should continue to be taken out at normal intervals. Again, this is something you should be speaking to Corporate Cleaning Services about. But, if your office is closed for any length of time, emptying the garbage bins is something to be conscious of before everyone leaves.
To make sure this is being taken care of, you’ll want to make sure your cleaners are coming in shortly after you’ve shut down for the season. Again, communication is key. You don’t want the garbage from the office the sit the entire time everyone is on holidays. You will come back to a nasty surprise!
Although the holidays are hectic, make sure you’re taking care of your health by taking care of the cleaning services your office will need during the holidays. A short conversation, phone call or email can coordinate your cleaning for the holidays and make sure your office is kept up to a standard you expect. Whether you’re open 365 days a year or shut down during the holidays, communication is key.
The team at Corporate Cleaning Services would like to wish all their current and new customers a happy and prosperous new year.
