‘Tis the season to eat food and celebrate with friends, family and even your colleagues.

Christmas parties are a great tradition and give your employees the chance to let loose and enjoy the festive season away from their desk.

It can be stressful to organise an office Christmas party, and the cleaning up afterwards can be even more overwhelming.

To help ease those nerves of having to clean up after the office party, we’ve compiled a list of tips so you can enjoy the celebrations stress-free!


The aftermath you’ll be faced with of the Christmas party can be overwhelming.

We advise you begin with decluttering any waste and freeing up surfaces to be wiped down. Have separate bin bags at the ready to sort through while you are decluttering.

Plan ahead

Preparing yourself for the clean up before the party might sound boring but it will help immensely.

By placing bins in convenient places around the office and some trays for used paper plates to go on will ensure a lot of the mess is conveniently stacked when you have to clean it up.

Left over drinks

If there are several bottles of wine left over that are half full, a great way to ensure they don’t go to waste is to freeze the wine in ice cube trays. The cubes can be used in the future for recipes that require wine.

Air fresheners

Wiping down surfaces and mopping up spills is easy, but the smell of alcohol can linger. Be sure to dot some air fresheners around the room to combat the odours with a crisp, fresh smell.

Call in the professionals

The best way to ensure your office is cleaned up properly and no evidence of the party remains is to call in a professional office cleaning company. ACME Cleaning services are tailored to meet the needs of your company which will suit your budget and requirements.
