Day Porter Services

Your facility deserves attention around the clock. At City Wide, we can provide day porter services to ensure your business creates a solid first impression. While night crews do a thorough cleaning outside of business hours, day porter services can oversee your building during the most important hours of business. These are times of high traffic that require extra attention. Additionally, having an individual dedicated to your building on a daily basis can have profound effects on business.

Day porter services can vary from facility to facility, and are largely dependent on the types of services businesses need in their day-to-day operations. A public, front-facing facility might require round-the-clock cleaning and upkeep in its lobbies and bathrooms, for example, while other businesses might benefit more from behind-the-scenes sanitation, handyman services or even maintaining and restocking paper products within an office.

What exactly day porter services can offer to your facility largely depends on your facility’s specific needs, so we encourage you to explore some of the many benefits day porters can provide below:

What Are Day Porter Services?

Day porters are people stationed within a facility who perform daily upkeep and cleaning services. While the specific duties of a day porter can vary, they usually involve the cleaning of public areas within a facility, including restrooms. While a janitorial staff may handle the big messes on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis, day porter services exist to keep patrons and employees safe and healthy moment-to-moment.

Many businesses are unaware of exactly what day porter services can do for them and their clients. In fact, day porter services include much more than what you would expect to get from a janitor or a handyman. Here are some of the duties and responsibilities a typical day porter oversees during the day:

  • Inspecting, cleaning, and disinfecting your restrooms
  • Vacuuming
  • Mopping, polishing, and general floor cleaning
  • Dusting surfaces
  • Keeping high traffic areas, such as lobbies, reception areas, dining areas, offices, and hallways clean
  • Cleaning appliances
  • Sanitizing surfaces
  • Washing windows
  • Blinds cleaning
  • Emptying trash cans, replacing trash can liners
  • Changing HVAC filters
  • Cleaning spills and drying wet floors
  • Cleaning parking lots
  • Snow and ice removal
  • Event set up and clean up
  • Indoor plant care
  • Graffiti removal
  • Replenishing paper products
  • Placing orders for supplies
  • Overall building maintenance

As you can see, day porter services can fit into just about any role in your facility’s day-to-day operations. Now that you understand exactly what a day porter can do for your business, let’s cover some of the potential benefits businesses can expect to see when they utilize one:

Employee Motivation

At City Wide, we oversee day porters who monitor the cleanliness and safety of your work environment. They are the eyes and ears of the building. A continuously clean environment helps boost employee productivity. The neatness of the space lends itself to creativity and innovation.

Properly utilizing day porter services in your facility allows your workers to focus on their jobs more effectively, without the constant need to switch gears and take time out of their schedules for the little accidents that make up daily life.


Day porter services are available when you need them, making them a great fit for businesses with unusual work hours, 24-hour businesses, or just for businesses that struggle with finding reliable help for their cleaning and sanitation needs.

Commitment To Quality

A day porter provides a constant clean in the areas where your business needs it the most – Lobbies, entrance areas, parking lots and other front-facing public areas.

Day porter services can help maintain building safety and keep the vital parts of your business clean and disinfected – So your visitors and staff feel confident they’re being well taken care of and given the kind of care they deserve.

Always Prepared

A day porter can help your facility be ready for business during the work week. While a night crew will prepare your building for the morning, a day porter gives extra support. Whether it’s restocking supplies in the bathrooms or keeping the halls clean, they’re always on the job. This is important for a company that may have last-minute meetings or clients arriving later in the day. Your business space will always be a positive reflection of your organization.

With City Wide, our clients have year-round access to more than 20 interior and exterior services. Whether you need general day porters service to maintain the day-to-day goings-on at your facility, or you’re looking for a more specialized service, we’re equipped to meet your needs and help you reach your goals. Some of the many services we offer to facilities just like yours on a daily basis include:

Most businesses can’t afford to waste time diverting their staff to every mess and spill that appears in their facility. Many facilities lack the type of constant, reliable cleaning that maintains a facility in proper working order and prevents larger issues from popping up down the road.
