Your holiday office cleaning needs are probably not top of mind as the winter holiday season approaches. But they should be! Depending on your business model, this is one of the busiest times of year. According the National Retail Federation, estimated sales activities for the next two months are a staggering $616.9 billion. From high customer foot traffic to seasonal celebrations, your business’ cleaning needs may change. Here are some recommended areas to bear in mind:
Increased cleaning for more customers
During the holidays, many of our clients in retail and service professions step up their cleaning schedules. More customers means that supplies run out faster, bathrooms need more attention, and general detail cleaning needs become more aggressive. Stores that typically receive a visit at the end of the day may have someone on site throughout the day to sweep, clean bathrooms, and attend to small messes. Evaluate your foot traffic patterns and discuss any necessary schedule changes with your commercial cleaning company now to ensure that you have the support to keep your facility looking its best during each of these critical sales days.
Holiday event support
Companies celebrate the holidays in a number of ways. It could be an end of the year celebration, a winter seasonal party, or a New Year’s Eve bash. Whether you’re using your own facility or renting one, working with your own event cleaners ensures that set up and breakdown will be stress-free. Clients and employees deserve the best, and your cleaning company can provide a deep cleaning in anticipation of the event. They can assist with steps such as day porting, any necessary snow removal, and advanced ordering of communal supplies to accommodate many guests. Cleaners can be on hand to help with issues during the party, and standing at the ready to whisk everything away so you’re ready for business as usual the next day.
Switching to greener products
Switching to greener products should be on your agenda at this time of year. As we move into the colder season and buildings are closed up, it’s more important than ever that your cleaning choices be environmentally responsible and sensitive to people’s health. Gentler green products lighten your footprint while ensuring that your customers and team remain healthy throughout the year. They’re effective at disinfecting while triggering fewer allergies or environmental chemical sensitivities. It’s also a great way to get a jump on your New Year’s health resolutions.
