Why Day Porter Services are Important to Have This Winter

Day Porters work to support the image of your facility, and they can assist with a variety of tasks around your building. These team members strive to keep your business clean, safe and operating smoothly.

With winter right around the corner, it is important to have assistance keeping your facility clear of ice, snow and the residual salt and water that can be tracked into our facilities as well.

Day Porters can help remove ice and snow from the walkways, as well as applying de-icing materials to reduce slip and fall accidents or trip hazards.

Common areas and lobbies need extra attention, especially during the winter months. Day Porters are there to clear messes as soon as they happen. They also mop, dry wet floors and vacuum rugs/carpets several times per day to clean up salt and dirt.
