Post-Holiday Cleaning for Commercial Spaces

The period from Thanksgiving to New Year’s usually means lots of traffic for commercial spaces. There are more visitors, added decorations, and lots of wear and tear that can leave spaces looking cluttered and dirty by the end of the holiday season.

Because of this, you might need to spend some extra time getting your space clean and ready for the New Year ahead. Here are a few tasks that will help you get started.

1.   Clean Out the Community Fridge

If you have a shared refrigerator in your space, now is the time to clean it out. Between holiday parties and treats, it’s probably full and has plenty of food that is no longer good. Post a note on the door giving employees a warning that a full refrigerator cleaning is coming and that any items they want to keep should be removed by a specified date.

Once you’ve given proper notice, clean out everything in the refrigerator and freezer. Next, wipe down all shelves and drawers. A clean refrigerator with plenty of space for storage will make your space much more comfortable – and sanitary – to start out the new year.

2.   Dust All Surfaces

Once you’ve put away any holiday decor, lights, or trees, you’ll probably notice that your surfaces are dustier than usual. It’s not uncommon for an extra layer of dirt and grim to build up over the holiday season.

As a result, you’ll want to spend extra time dusting all surfaces including window sills, computers, and televisions/monitors. This will not only help to freshen up your spaces but will also get rid of any airborne allergens.

3.   Deep Clean Floors

The extra traffic over the holidays combined with winter weather means that floors have seen more wear and tear than usual. Plus, with this year’s winter weather around the holidays, there’s been snow, mud, and salt to add to the mix.

To keep your floors looking good and free of damage, it’s a good idea to professionally clean them after the holiday rush. This includes deep cleaning all carpets and rugs.

4.   Disinfect High Traffic Spots

As you get your commercial space ready for the winter months ahead, it’s important to work to keep it as germ-free as possible. This is especially true after having more people in your space over the holidays.

To reduce the risk of spreading illnesses, it’s important to disinfect all hot spots or places that are frequently touched. This includes light switches, door handles, elevator buttons, handrails, and shared computers and phones.

While this is something that should be a regular part of your cleaning routine, it’s particularly important to do after the holiday rush!
