If you have a large office building or commercial facility, you can always keep it clean with a day porter service. But what do day porters do when they arrive at your building? Let’s look at day porters’ duties and services to determine how they improve and maintain your building’s condition.
In this post, we will cover:
- What day porters are and what they do
- When day porters work
- Whether you can customize day porter services
- The benefits of day porter services
- What Brenner’s day porter services include
What Is a Day Porter?
A day porter is a cleaning professional who works for a third-party janitorial company. These porters are also called building porters. They arrive at an assigned client’s facility every day to perform a range of cleaning and maintenance tasks, which include:
- Cleaning and disinfecting common areas
- Checking areas for trash
- Cleaning windows and glass doors
- Cleaning, mopping, and polishing floors
- Setting up and breaking down events
- Replacing Lightbulbs
- Delivering packages
- Answering service calls
Day porters may also perform minor repairs to office equipment or provide deep cleaning services when necessary. Overall, day porters provide janitorial services to the same clients over and over again. That way, they learn their clients’ building operations so they can provide the commercial cleaning services the facilities need.
When Do Day Porters Work?
As their name implies, day porters work during the day, while their clients’ facilities are occupied. They ensure that clients’ commercial properties are healthy and safe places to work and visit. They also help businesses run smoothly by delivering packages and messages. Day porters ultimately function as daytime helpers who give clients peace of mind by taking care of all the little tasks that come with running a commercial office or facility.
Can You Customize Day Porter Services?
Yes. No two commercial facilities are alike, so day porters customize the services they provide to meet your building’s needs. For example, if your building has heavily used break rooms, your day porters can clean them a couple of times a day instead of once to limit the mess that occurs in those rooms. However, if you often deal with dirty floors, the day porters can focus on mopping and vacuuming every floor in your building. When you bring day porters into your office or facility, they personalize their services to meet your business and building requirements.

What Benefits Do Day Porter Services Provide?
Day porter services provide many benefits, especially in the way they ease the cleaning and maintenance burdens that facility managers deal with. A facility manager can give the day porters a list of tasks for each day when they arrive at the building or send the list to the cleaning company so the porters have it before they arrive.
Day porters take care of all the same tasks that an in-house cleaning crew would handle, but you wouldn’t have to build raises and other compensation components into your maintenance budget like you would for an in-house crew. Hiring day porters from a commercial cleaning company allows you to pay a flat fee for customizable services, which considerably lowers your maintenance costs.
