Why Porter Services Are Essential for Any Facility

Maintaining a professional appearance and upholding sanitation issues are daily challenges for commercial facilities. Day porter services are essential to maintaining the appearance of your entire facility including your lobby and offices. They perform invaluable, time-saving services and are an excellent way to control property maintenance costs.

Maintaining a professional appearance and preserving proper sanitation is an ongoing challenge for both small and large facilities. The health and safety of your customers and employees depends on the cleanliness of your office, lobby, facility and property.

Spotless Cleaning

Whether you manage a restaurant, retail shopping center, corporate building, school, park or new building site, on-site day porters ensure your property is well maintained and kept clean, down to the last detail.
Porters provide high touch commercial day services to complement other building maintenance services like high-tech sweeping services. Porters walk parking lots during the daytime hours to police areas for trash, scrape gum, remove cigarette butts from flower beds and wipe down trash cans.Additionally, these facility service individuals utilize a comprehensive porter service checklist which addresses the most common cleaning concerns. This checklist, of course, can be modified to meet the needs of the facility.

Customizable Porter Services

Some of the day porter services available and customizable according to the needs of your property are:
  • Litter Removal
  • Cleaning & Disinfection
  • Restroom Maintenance
  • Clean-up of Spills
  • Customer & Tenant Interaction
  • Trash Receptacle Wipe Down
  • Change &Reline Trash Receptacles
  • Graffiti Abatement
  • Cobweb Abatement
  • Window Washing
  • Dumpster Clean Up & Maintenance
  • Newspaper Stand Cleaning

Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly Rates

Porters can offer daily porter services on a flat hourly rate, daily, weekly or on a monthly basis.
When selecting a porter service for your commercial facility, be sure to find a company that recognizes that no two facilities are identical. A cookie-cutter service plan just won’t cut it for all businesses.

Your porter service should understand that all customers have specific needs and want tailor-made commercial building services. Enlisting the help of a property advisor at the porter service company should relieve the stress of facilities management by enabling you to work with one senior-level contact who will notify you of all site inspections via email, make frequent visits to your site, be proactive in managing any anomalies and ensure that your facilities needs are being met. Also, be sure to find a company that offers fast response times and 24-hour a day service, you will be glad you did.
