The Run up to Christmas (From a cleaning point of view)

The run up to Christmas is the busiest time of the year whether you are a business, home-owner or event organiser you are starting to think about that all-important day! However, maybe more important than the day itself is the preparation that must be done before hand to make it run as smooth as possible. Even though at Ideal we are Commercial and Industrial cleaners, we want to share our 70 years of wisdom with the rest of you.

So here are some tips on us…

#Tip 1:

Do not start too early! Just because this blog has been released early December, it doesn’t mean you need to start cleaning RIGHT NOW. You have to remember people still work/live in the area you want to get ready. It may seem too late to a lot of you, but it needs to be done just before the day or event. If you need to hire a team then this can be done even quicker then doing it by yourself but do allow yourself more time.

#Tip 2:

Do not stress. A lot of people will use the stress to get them into the cleaning mood and kick start themselves into action. This is not advised for your mental health or for time/preparation reasons. If you are stressing it normally shows you have left it until the last minute and you don’t think you can get the job done. In any business this is a big NO. We never think we can’t get the job done, therefore will always be ready and allow plenty of time.

#Tip 3:

Use good quality tools. We are not suggesting you run to the shop and spend a lot of money on all the newest, strongest and most powerful chemicals. What you have may be more then good enough already; just ensure you use it safely and plentiful. We also recommend using micro-fibre cloths and read the reviews on chemical cleaners. DO NOT just look at the name and think it is good; it’s often not the case. Our stores team will be happy to advise on any queries regarding products.

#Tip 4:

Accidents do happen. We all know that nothing in life runs smoothly. Things break, tools don’t work correctly and you just can’t figure out where that last screw came from. Therefore, it is important to give yourself an extra day on any project. Use that day for if anything goes wrong to implement any required corrections. Maybe, on the off chance it all works out well; it will be a well-deserved rest. So really, it’s a win- win situation.
