Holiday Party Cleaning Checklist

You made it through the maelstrom that was Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the new juggernaut Cyber Monday. But now, it’s nearly December and the real holiday frenzy is about to kick into 5th gear. The holidays are a time for family, friends, colleagues, and loved ones to spend quality time together i.e. holiday parties.


How can you ensure your energy stays geared towards the party and not worrying whether the bathrooms are clean and the rugs properly placed. The way to get the most out of The Best Time Of The Year, is to work from a checklist.


Here is a holiday party cleaning checklist for homes and offices:


The Week Before:



Stock liquid hand soap

Make hand towels visible and accessible

Stock toilet paper and feminine products



Deep-clean (preferably with a professional cleaning company like N&A Commercial)

Use rugs to protect hardwood or sensitive areas


Upholstered Furniture:

Vacuum fabric-covered furniture and wash removable upholstery

For best results, schedule a professional cleaning company ahead of time


Use tablecloths and covers to protect table surfaces

Stock coasters


Windows, Curtains, and Blinds:

Wash and dry windows with microfiber cloth

Clean and dust blinds, curtains, or drapery


The Day Before:


Spot check all rooms that will be accessible during the party

Dust (tip: use a dryer sheet, it picks up dust mites and prevents future dust buildup)

Pretreat tablecloths (stains are going to happen, accept it and be proactive)
