A Day porter is different from the nightly cleaning crew.
They’re both cleaning crews but they provide different services. When your facility is open, a day porter keeps up with emptying trash cans, sweeping the floors and most importantly a day porter can make note of items that need fixing or replacing, and report those to your property manager.
In the course of your tenants using the building many little things can come up, like mud from a rainy day in your lobby or a flickering light bulb near an entrance.
A day porter is type of janitor/ custodian who is responsible for making sure your building looks clean, presentable, and inviting at all times – especially between night-time cleaning maintenance. 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 daily use from your tenants in your building, a day porter will operate in the background to ensure everything is taken care of to your standards.
