Cleaning Your Office Before the Christmas Break
Before going away for the Christmas break, businesses often give their offices a deep clean, so that when the New Year comes, they are off to a positive start with a clean, tidy and organised office.
Deep Clean during the Christmas Break
To achieve these desired results, and to show your employees that you mean business, you should ask your commercial cleaning company to carry out the following key tasks:
- Give desks a deep clean: keeping a clean and tidy office can help to reduce the likelihood of disease and infections spreading and contributes towards good hygiene practices. The average desk is a prime breeding ground for infections and can have up to 10,000,000 of bacteria. Bacteria and viruses can multiply on hard surfaces, remaining infectious for up to 24 hours. So, before offices are closed, it is important these surfaces are thoroughly cleaned.
- Office equipment: other office equipment such as phones also need to be cleaned. Although this may look dirt free, studies have found as many as 25,000 germs per square inch on an office telephone. Many workers tend to forget about cleaning their phones despite using them regularly!
- Fridge: emptying food in the fridge is often overlooked and may not be part of your cleaning company’s normal routine. Nothing should be in the refrigerator past its expiration date and they should take out all of the shelves and clean these as well as door handles and door seals since these come into regular contact with hands.
- Washrooms: coming back to grotty washrooms after the Christmas break is not a welcome sight. In addition to cleaning the toilets and sinks, ensure your cleaning company is cleaning doors and handles as well as any ventilation units. It’s also a good idea to ensure that hand towels, hand soaps and toilet tissues are topped up.
Commercial Carpet Cleaning
Between Christmas and the New Year is also the ideal time to get your office floors and carpets thoroughly cleaned. It’s not always easy to keep on top of floor cleaning when employees and visitors, are constantly in and out.
Without proper cleaning, office carpets can become home to a range of parasites, including fleas, lice and mites. A professional commercial cleaning service can guarantee the deep clean necessary to restore your carpets to pristine condition to impress employees and visitors alike.
