Now that we’re getting into the holiday months and Christmas is on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what needs to be tidied before everyone leaves for their break. Whether you are a business that operates with no staff over the holidays or a limited team with less hours, it is best that you prepare a safe and healthy environment beforehand.
Coming back in 2022 to a dirty, smelly office is a terrible way to start the year, so South West Cleaning has compiled a few Christmas cleaning tips to make sure you return to a fresh office that is safe and promotes productivity for your workers.

Remove Waste and Food Products
A terrible surprise for some business owners and employees happens when they return to the workplace in January or February, only to realise that there is mouldy, smelly food scraps or waste festering in their office. This can also be a safety risk if left unattended, and the best way to avoid this situation is to empty bins, fridges and desks before you leave for the holidays.
Fridges can contain many food products that may go off, so you need to remove anything that is perishable. Then take a moment to wipe out the fridges as well, and clean them thoroughly so that there is no risk of bad smells or mould. Do the same with your bins and desks for each employee to encourage cleanliness in the office space and save yourself a lot of trouble.
Take Stock of Cleaning Supplies
Have you checked wherever you keep your cleaning supplies recently? Making sure you are well-stocked before you leave for the holidays is an excellent idea that makes sure you are prepared and ensures you won’t return in 2022 without your handy bottle of sanitiser.
If you have run out of something, this is the best time to take note and then figure out what should be ordered in the months to come. Look for things like:
- Paper Towel
- Toilet Paper
- Dish Washing Supplies
Hire a Cleaning Service
If you and your employees are already dreading the end-of-year clean and want to simply get their work done and enjoy Christmas, why not look at hiring a cleaning service to take care of it for you?
Professional and affordable cleaning services are a great way to keep up employee morale and make sure that you are not paying your workers for time spent sweeping or wiping when they could be doing the work you hired them for. At the end of the year, it’s nice to be able to take a break, and a cleaning service can offer you that break when it comes to making sure your workplace is healthy and safe environment for employees.
