In This short guide will go over all of the different things a day porter can do.

Keeping your building looking professional and clean between your regularly scheduled cleaning services can be a challenge. So many little things can arise, like mud from a rainy day in your lobby or a flickering light bulb near the second floor elevators.

You need to maintain a high level of appearance in your building. That’s why a day porter can be an invaluable help to the busy facility manager or business owner.

Day Porter Responsibilities

A day porter is responsible for making sure your building looks clean, presentable, and inviting at all times – especially between routine cleaning maintenance activities. They also ensure the building is safe for all occupants if any unexpected incidents arise, like slippery floors or broken glass.

Discreetly and without intruding on the day-to-day activities in your building, a day porter will operate in the background to ensure everything is taken care of to your standards.

Here are some of the duties a day porter would perform, depending on your needs:

  • Keep lobbies clean

  • Keep common areas clean

  • Keep washrooms clean

  • Restock supplies in washrooms as necessary

  • Perform minor maintenance, such as replacing burnt out light bulbs

  • Clean and prepare kitchen, cafeteria, and/or break rooms (particularly before and after busy times)

  • Clean and prepare conference rooms before VIP visitors and after meetings

  • Perform continuous cleaning to reduce the spread of illness by eliminating bacteria and germs

  • Respond to spills and other cleaning emergencies

  • Remove or warn of safety hazards, such as objects in the way of pedestrians or wet floors

  • Remove litter and debris from entrances and parking lots

  • Superintendent coverage

A day porter can perform all of these duties, some of these duties, or additional agreed-upon duties – whatever you require. If you're located in the Orange County, Los Angeles County or San Diego County area give us a call or click here to schedule a free quote.
