After Party Cleaning
You should have a committee in charge of cleanup if you opt to not have the professionals come and clean the post party clean up. In order to help expedite cleanup, below are some tasks to assign to each person.
Sanitizing. Using disinfects and sanitizing wipes from the chairs, tables, shelves, and desks as well as other surfaces, remove grease, sticky residues, and dust.
Any Spills are Spot Cleaned. Immediately attend to spills right away and if any spots are missed after the party, wipe the residues away.
Vacuum/Sweep Floors. Sweep or vacuum the floors in all high traffic areas as well as to get in the corners and the party areas.
Decorations Removed. The decorations can be forgotten up to weeks after the party. as you take down the decoration, place them in sandwich bags and label them if needed and be sure to keep all the small pieces together. You can simply toss them in the trash if you do not want to store them or send them home with an employee.
Hard Surfaces are Mopped. Even on hard floor varieties, a layer of stains and residues can quickly develop. With a mop, wash down the surfaces and mop up the floor with hot water and if necessary, some cleaning product.
Bathrooms are Deep Cleaned. To ensure it is ready for regular business hours, the bathroom is the most important room to clean after the party. Be sure to restock the paper towels, toilet paper, and soap dispenser in addition to disinfecting the toilets, sinks, doors, and appliances.
Trash Cleanup. When going through the party area to pick up plates, napkins, cups, party hats, and other large, disposable party items, take a large trash can or bag with you.
