We’ve all been through some of the most trying times these last two years with the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the holiday season bearing down, it might seem like that stress has increased. Many businesses are preparing to celebrate the holidays with an office party, so it’s probably no surprise that thoroughly cleaning and organizing your office space would be a top priority. How can this be achieved to ensure everyone’s safety as we gather together this year? We’ve got some tips to help get you covered.
Cleaning High Touch Surfaces
Whether you have a large corporate office or a small business, there are always going to be high traffic areas in your space. Doorknobs and light switches are just some of the things in your office that can gather germs quickly. Wiping down these surfaces is just one small thing you can do that will ensure a thorough clean of your space. Some other techniques you can incorporate for a deep clean are:
- Dust and wipe down desks and other flat surfaces with disinfecting wipes, such as Clorox.
- Vacuum and mop floors to get rid of built up dirt and grime
- Thoroughly clean restrooms and keep them stocked with supplies for your holiday party
Considerations for Your Party-Goers
Before hosting an office party, it’s important to be up-to-date on the latest information regarding COVID-19 from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, having disposable masks on hand for guests, as well as hand sanitizer dispensers, can help your employees feel more comfortable when gathering for the holidays.
Clutter Be Gone
It’s no secret that shared spaces can get very disorganized, very fast. For many businesses, keeping a space organized can be a challenge, and throwing the holidays into the mix can make it seem even more daunting. Keeping small bins handy underneath desks for extra storage, as well as small on-desk organizers can help keep clutter at bay, and make your office space look organized. In addition to this, keeping waste bins underneath desks and around the office empty before your employees arrive can ensure added cleanliness and organization to the space.
Combine all of these tips and tricks, and your office will be ready for a safe holiday party in no time. Need a little help getting your space ready? We offer disinfecting and office cleaning services to give you that extra support while you prepare for the holidays.
