The holidays are a joyous time to enjoy festive cheer with family and friends, but they can also come with their own share of stressors. From hosting dinner to shopping for gifts, things can get quite hectic quickly, and menial tasks in the business like cleaning can sometimes fall to the wayside. Avoid the need for a major cleanup in the new year by being diligent over the holidays this year!
Keeping a Clean Environment
It doesn’t matter if you’re planning to host a company dinner for 30 people, or if you’re enjoying the company of a small few. Having a clean place to celebrate can make a big difference. You can prep your home for all the upcoming holiday activities with small and simple touch ups. When’s the last time you cleaned off the top of your fridge? Or wiped down your shower? Now is the perfect time to identify the nooks and crannies that haven’t seen the light of day for a long time. Who decided it had to be “spring” cleaning anyway? Celebrate the end of this decade with some “winter” cleaning!
Impress Your Guests
For those of us who will have the pleasure of clients walking through your office or retail location, you’ll want to give them a good impression of your business. An easy way to view it from the eyes of an outsider is to take a walk from your front entrance, as though you had just entered. What’s the first thing that catches your eye? Where is your attention focused to? This can help you identify areas that need a bit of a touchup or wipe. Better yet, recruit a friend and have them do this test for real!
For businesses that like to dress the place up for the holidays, everyone has some ingenious way of packing away and storing their holiday decorations and other paraphernalia. For most of us, this stuff will sit in storage for the next 11 months as an unorganized pile thrown together haphazardly. This year, when it’s time to put everything away, consider taking a few extra seconds with each item to store it properly and neatly. This will make things easier in future years, and can contribute towards a more streamlined and organized office as well.
The holidays are a time to relax and enjoy quality time with your loved ones, but that doesn’t mean they can’t also be productive. Taking some extra time to clean up your business before, during, and after the holidays sets you up to have an excellent start to the new year. Regency Cleaning wishes all our clients the happiest of holidays! You can reach us in the new year at 403-520-7788.
