Is your current janitorial
company's idea of cleaning
your building simply taking
out the trash?

Do you need a building custodian/day porter but not sure what should you expect?

Day Porter/Custodians maintain your standards and expectations. Custodians work in buildings, hospitals, schools, apartment complexes, hotels and other industrial or commercial spaces. Day Porters work during the day when buildings are occupied and custodians work only at night so they don’t disturb business.

Day Porters usually report to the facility maintenance supervisor and assist in additional duties as necessary. Custodial work is a hands-on job and experience with tasks, tools and materials helps custodians become faster and more efficient at their jobs.

Day Porters should possess good communication and organizational skills. They also must be able to work alone and/or minimal direct supervision. Knowledge about the job, responsibility and efficiency are as important to be able to get the work done.
