Aspen Maintenance can provide day porter services for as little as two hours a day all the way up to full-time. Our day porters can perform a variety of tasks that will keep your property not only looking professional but will also help control property maintenance costs. They can perform both interior and exterior janitorial and maintenance functions. Our day porters report to work with both uniforms and badges to project that professional image.
While janitors typically clean your facilities outside of your business hours, day porters operate during your workday in order to help your business maintain a professional appearance. Day porters can help to fill the gap between janitorial services and are always available to help with cleaning issues that may come up during the day.
Cleaning During The Workday
Day porters operate during workday to help your business maintain a professional appearance. They work while building is occupied while janitors may perform their work after business hours. While janitors are great, they are not always available. A day porter is, and as such, can clean mud and the like as needed.
Day porters work in conjunction with night cleaning team to help keep the facility in good repair. Most deep cleaning is only performed after hours, as you wouldn’t want cleaning that creates strong odors, generates a lot of noise, or would be in the way done during the workday.
However, cleaning and sanitizing during business hours important too. This is especially true if you run a business that caters to a lot of customers throughout the day, where there are many meetings or conferences, or where it is simply important that the building stay sanitary and looking its best at all times.
Day porters help ensure your business says clean, day in and day out. This is invaluable for employee and customer satisfaction
What Do Day Porters Do?
Day porters’ responsibilities are what you require. They vary depending on the needs of your facility. Typically, they are maintenance tasks, with a schedule the client assigns to perform them. Day porter services limit downtime with preventative maintenance and reduce potential liability by preventing accidents. They improve employee morale and customer satisfaction by helping you maintain a clean, pleasant workplace.
Day porter services typically include the following:
- Lobby maintenance
- Cleaning/maintaining common areas
- Cleaning/preparing conference rooms
- Minor maintenance, like replacing light bulbs
- Policing entrances for messes, etc
- Monitoring/servicing restrooms
- Removing trash/debris
- Restocking restrooms
- Meeting setup/teardown

Day porters typically have routine daily tasks and respond to unforeseen issues. They identify things that need repair and can identify and report security issues, like graffiti. They clean high-touch areas, like door handles, frequently and stock bathrooms. They can quickly respond to issues like roof leaks and can identify potential repair needs, even if they do not have the training to conduct said repairs.
Day porters can even run a package upstairs or help an employee move offices.
Do You Need A Day Porter?
Whether or not you need day porter services depends on the type and size of your business. Larger businesses and businesses that must maintain a sanitary environment typically require day porter services in addition to janitorial services.
For example, the CDC recommends cleaning objects in lobby/reception areas more frequently, like elevator buttons and door handles. This is especially important in highly trafficked areas or areas where sick people go in and out.
Day porters improve your facility’s appearance by helping keep it clean at all times. This also makes it safer and healthier by keeping it sanitized. They can improve employee satisfaction and customer experiences by ensuring a clean workplace. They can also help decrease liability by cleaning up spills and messes that could lead to slip and fall accidents, as well as picking up anything out of place.
