Event cleaning can be one aspect of party planning that often gets missed. You have the venue and all of the guest replies are in. You’ve sorted out catering and the DJ and it’s looking to be a great party. But in the run up to planning your corporate event, it can be easy to forget that very important detail – cleaning up when the party is finished. After party cleaning is a very stressful job. Follow these tips to help you get through the chore.
Use disposable dishes
Instead of creating a mountain of dishes, why not use disposable ones? You can get disposable plates and cutlery that looks professional and not cheap or tacky. This also reduces the risk of broken plates if someone has an accident. At the end of the night, you can simply throw it all away.
Clean as you go
Don’t leave everything until the end of the night. Try cleaning as you go. Pick up a few plates and bin any rubbish you spot lying around. If there is a spill, deal with it quickly now rather than suffer with a sticky, drying stain later.
Start cleaning as soon as possible
Although it can be tempting to head home after the party and deal with the mess tomorrow, try and get as much done as possible early on. Look at what can be tackled right away and deal with it then. For example, if you bin all of the rubbish and clear up any spills that night, the next day can be dedicated to vacuuming and wiping down all the surfaces.
Cleaning is a massive job and you won’t be able to do it on your own. Before the night, try to get a small team together of people who will stick around and help with the aftermath. The more people there are, the quicker the job will get done.
If you don’t want to spend your party trying to clean rather than having fun, a good idea is to hire a professional even cleaning service.
Minimise your stress levels
Planning a corporate event is a huge task and it can be extremely stressful. You have to find a venue, book a caterer, make sure the invitations are sent out, deal with the promotion and all of this on a budget. Do you really want to get to the end of the night and realise you still have to clean everything up to? Hiring a professional event cleaning service can seriously minimise your stress levels and free you up to enjoy your party.
Save yourself some time
After party cleaning is a seriously big job. You might not have the time to spend picking up bottles, clearing away food and mopping up spills. If there are a lot of people at your event, the mess will be even worse. After all of the time you have put into making sure your event is a hit, don’t saddle yourself with the clean-up as well! Event cleaners will save you the time consuming job of cleaning and let you get on with more important things.
Parties can be very messy
It can be tempting to think you can take the mess on yourself. How bad can it be? But parties are often very messy, no matter how hard we try to minimise that mess. Drinks will get spilled, food will be dropped and there will be a lot of rubbish to dispose of. You don’t want to get to the end of the party only to realise the mess is more than you can handle. Hiring a professional event cleaning service means having someone you can rely on, with experience in tackling serious messes like these.
Event cleaning companies know what they are doing
After party cleaners are experienced with handling the mess left behind after a party. When faced with such a huge mess, it can be difficult to know where to begin or how to dispose of the rubbish. Event cleaners take this stress away. They know exactly what to target first and how to clean in the most efficient but thorough way.
