If you use an office cleaner's services, here are some tips to follow around Christmastime.
Consider the effect certain office Christmas decorations will have on your cleaner's workload
Many office owners like to decorate their premises during the festive period. If you'll be doing this, you should consider the impact that certain types of Christmas décor might have on your cleaner's workload. For example, if you put up a large, real Christmas tree in your office's foyer, your cleaner may have to vacuum this area of the premises more often, due to the many pine needles that this tree will shed during the month of December. Similarly, if you hang tinsel around your office desks or across the reception desk, this will probably result in quite a lot of tinsel strands falling to the ground, which your cleaner will then have to vacuum up.
Likewise, if you decorate the windows of the office or any of its glass or acrylic signage with 'snow-in-a-can' spray, you'll need to keep in mind that your cleaner will have to spend quite some time removing this from these surfaces when Christmas is over. As such, it's worth having a discussion with the office cleaner about their current workload before you decorate so that you can find out if they'll be able to do a bit of overtime throughout December. If they're too busy, then it might be best to opt for different decorations that will create less mess (such as a faux Christmas tree instead of a real one, some Christmas-themed bunting instead of tinsel and some cotton-ball snow garlands instead of snow spray) so that your cleaner can continue to maintain the office's current level of cleanliness and tidiness during the festivities.
Consider hiring an extra cleaner or two if you'll be having a big office Christmas party
If you're planning to treat your employees to a big office Christmas party, it might be sensible to hire a few extra office cleaners to temporarily help out your permanent office cleaning staff the day after this event. Whilst your current office cleaners might be able to do the clean-up, handling it without any extra help, in addition to doing their normal cleaning routine, might be quite exhausting and might result in them having to finish a few of their usual cleaning tasks a couple of days after the party.
By ensuring they have one or two extra pairs of hands helping them out when clearing away the party buffet leftovers, the beer bottles, plastic drinking glasses and party décor, you then won't have to be concerned about them falling behind with their other essential office cleaning work and they'll be less exhausted as a result of doing this job.
