Safely Decorate the Office for the Holidays

December 5th, 2016 · No Comments

As the 2016 holiday season approaches, decoration in stores, homes and offices begin to transform these spaces into seasonal wonderlands. As you bring holiday cheer into your workplace by decorating per your company’s written policy on holiday decorations, keep the following safety guidelines in mind.

IFMA (the International Facilities Management Association) noted several safety guidelines when decorating the office. Follow these common-sense precautions: use flame retardant decorations, do not use lit candles and any lights used should be rated for indoor use. Also, be sure that decorations do not block exits or walkways and that cords do not cause a tripping hazard.

Here are just a few of our favorite office holiday touches: a dish of candy canes for clients, lights on an indoor office tree, decorated trees in the lobby area, a holiday toy or coat drive for the less fortunate, holiday music and of course a seasonal smell with scented soaps and air fresheners.

Contact ServiceMaster Commercial Services at 866-370-0737 before the holiday party, for a free, no-obligation quote on professionally cleaning your office space, freshen your restrooms and shine up your floors.
