Dec 13, 2021

With party season well and truly underway, it is inevitable that mess will be left behind. From confetti canons, rubbish, drinks spilled, and Christmas glitter everywhere. You need an event cleaning plan to ensure each, and every party leaves a positive lasting memory. Whether you are hosting a one-off event, or a seasoned professional here are some top tips to making your event memorable for all the right reasons.

Planning Ahead

Check you have all the basic cleaning supplies at hand. It will mean that cleaning during and following the event can occur immediately. Additionally, your events team is then prepared for any urgent accidents or incidents that may arise.

Supplies such as:

  • Bin bags
  • Paper towels
  • Gloves
  • Litter picking tools
  • Cleaning cloths

Encourage Guests

Having bins available encourages your guests to dispose of their rubbish properly. Furthermore, clear signage around where to put items once used also helps with the overall cleanliness of the event. This adds to and develops a clear plan and focus around where you want people to put things. Focussing on areas such as near food and drink both inside and out. Additionally, depending on your event type you could incentivise people to tidy up. For instance, having a reusable drinks cup that is charged for can incentivise them to return the item rather than leaving it lying around.

Organise Waste Removal

Although you might use your regular designated waste bins, you need to consider the extra waste your event is going to produce. It is vital you are prepared for this and speak to your local council collection.

Plan Focus Areas

It is easy to remember the obvious places to clean and the places that are right in front of you. However, toilets, smoking areas and car parks are also hot spots for your guests. Factor these all into your cleaning plans as first impressions really do mean everything.

Trust The Professionals

If you are running the event yourself, don’t just rely on your “regular” staff. Yes, they are able to run a clean cloth over surfaces, mop, and sweep however, they are not specialists. Hiring professional cleaners ensures the job is done faster, safer, and more efficiently using the correct equipment.
