Place mats in high traffic areas: To prevent carpet stains, place mats in high traffic areas.
Use Tablecloths: Protect the table with a festive decorative tablecloth.
After Office Party Clean Up
If you opt to not have the professionals come and clean the post party clean up, you should have a committee in charge of cleanup. Below are some tasks to assign to each person to help expedite cleanup.
Sanitize surfaces. Remove grease, sticky residues, and dust using disinfects and sanitizing wipes from the chairs, tables, shelves, and desks as well as other surfaces.
Spot clean spills. Attend to spills right away and if any spots are missed after the party, wipe the residues.
Vacuum carpets and sweep floors. In all high traffic areas as well as to get in the corners and the party areas, sweep or vacuum the floors.
Take down party decorations. Up to weeks after the party, the decorations can be forgotten. Make certain to keep all the small pieces together, place them in sandwich bags and label them if needed as you take down the decoration. If you do not want to store them or send them home with an employee, you can simply toss them in the trash.
Mop hard surfaces. A layer of stains and residues on hard floors can quickly develop. Using a mop to wash down the surfaces and mop up the floor with hot water and if necessary, some cleaning product.
Tidy bathrooms. The bathroom is the most important room to clean after the party to ensure it is ready for regular business hours. Make certain to disinfect the toilets, sinks, doors, sinks, and appliances and ensure to restock the paper towels, toilet paper, and soap dispenser.
Clean up trash. Take a large trash can or bag with you when going through the party area to pick up plates, napkins, cups, party hats, and other large, disposable party items.
