The countdown has well and truly started with many of us rising to the challenge engaging all the project management, counselling, mindfulness and relaxation skills we can muster.
If your business closes completely or just for the Bank Holidays, you may want to make use of this time to carry out planned maintenance.
Whether the carpets need freshened up and stains removed or the hard floor surface needs cleaning and refinishing, this may be the ideal time to book it in.
Some cleaning companies are able to offer regular planned cleans and maintenance of hard floors as well as carpet cleans – all fully insured and carried out by trained operatives and this is already booked in with you. If not, there’s still time to raise this with them and book it in. Modern methods of cleaning and stripping hard floors should mean there is as little downtime and no unpleasant lingering smell.
If you are having your office party on the premises it may also be a good time to consider a deep office clean, so that your premises are ready for the return of the full team, relaxed and raring to go from their prolonged break…
We would suggest that even if you are not planning any maintenance or a deep clean, you at least warn your supplier of the party and consider if the tidy-up would incur any additional hours work.
A little extra planning now may save you time and inconvenience later on.
