We’ve all been there, the day after a huge party that felt like it would never end, but you’ve woken up the next morning to find a spectacular mess in your house or garden that looks like it needs a team of professional cleaners to take care of it. Cleaning up after a party can be a nightmare, but there are simple things you can do to prevent the mess in the first place.
Provide Plenty of Rubbish Bins
A great way to ensure that your party doesn’t end up in rubbish heaps is to provide plenty of ways your guests can dispose of their rubbish themselves. Provide bins and baskets for your guests to use, and provide them with disposable glasses, cutlery and even paper plates if need be. At the end of the night, simply wrap up your disposable tablecloth and plates and take is straight to the bin for a trouble-free cleanup.
If you are having a party in your garden or at an outdoor function event, ensure bins are placed in easy to reach areas, and if you can, make sure the food and drinks you provide have as little wrapping, plastic packaging or items that can be dropped on the floor or the grass.
Have a beer opening station situated in a prominent location and place a bin underneath it to allow easier collection of beer bottle tops after your party.
Consider Hiring a Cleaning Service
After your party is over, even with the preventative measures you have taken, you still could find yourself facing a large mess you need to clean up. The party is over, now the hard work begins! If you are averse to cleaning up a huge mess, you could always hire a professional cleaning service to help you out, they offer a great service for reasonable prices and will save you a lot of time and effort in the long run.
Enlist a Friend, or Three!
If your party was of legendary status, you may have enough rubbish to require a skip bin to remove what is left over. If you have damaged furniture or household goods, don’t overlook the availability of a residential skip bin to help you out of a pickle. Get your friends to help you out loading the skip and then have the skip bin company simply take it away.
In the end, the party was probably worth all of the effort, and your preventative measures may have played a huge role in giving you less work to tackle after the party. But don’t forget to call in a friend or two to help with the clear up, so next time the party can be held at their place!
