Day Porter

Your facility deserves attention around the clock. At City Wide, we can provide day porter services to ensure your business creates a solid first impression. While night crews do a thorough cleaning outside of business hours, day porter services can oversee your building during the most important hours of business. These are times of high traffic that require extra attention. Additionally, having an individual dedicated to your building on a daily basis can have profound effects on business.

Day porter services can vary from facility to facility, and are largely dependent on the types of services businesses need in their day-to-day operations. A public, front-facing facility might require round-the-clock cleaning and upkeep in its lobbies and bathrooms, for example, while other businesses might benefit more from behind-the-scenes sanitation, handyman services or even maintaining and restocking paper products within an office.

What exactly day porter services can offer to your facility largely depends on your facility’s specific needs, so we encourage you to explore some of the many benefits day porters can provide below:

What Are Day Porter Services?

Day porters are people stationed within a facility who perform daily upkeep and cleaning services. While the specific duties of a day porter can vary, they usually involve the cleaning of public areas within a facility, including restrooms. While a janitorial staff may handle the big messes on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis, day porter services exist to keep patrons and employees safe and healthy moment-to-moment.

Many businesses are unaware of exactly what day porter services can do for them and their clients. In fact, day porter services include much more than what you would expect to get from a janitor or a handyman. Here are some of the duties and responsibilities a typical day porter oversees during the day:

  • Inspecting, cleaning, and disinfecting your restrooms
  • Vacuuming
  • Mopping, polishing, and general floor cleaning
  • Dusting surfaces
  • Keeping high traffic areas, such as lobbies, reception areas, dining areas, offices, and hallways clean
  • Cleaning appliances
  • Sanitizing surfaces
  • Washing windows
  • Blinds cleaning
  • Emptying trash cans, replacing trash can liners
  • Changing HVAC filters
  • Cleaning spills and drying wet floors
  • Cleaning parking lots
  • Snow and ice removal
  • Event set up and clean up
  • Indoor plant care
  • Graffiti removal
  • Replenishing paper products
  • Placing orders for supplies
  • Overall building maintenance

As you can see, day porter services can fit into just about any role in your facility’s day-to-day operations.
