What Is A Day Porter? (And Do I Need One?)

Mon, 03/26/2018 - 14:13 -- Laura M. Pulliam

Most of us have learned not to judge a book by its cover. But I'd venture a guess that we still judge a business by its appearance. I know I've been skeptical of a doctor’s office with a messy lobby and I’ve even walked out of a restaurant with an unkept restroom. If the curb appeal isn't, well, appealing then I'm going to take my business elsewhere!

At Sonlight Cleaning Service, we truly believe that “First Impressions Count.” We can probably all agree that it is important to keep our workplaces clean. Not only does this benefit our would-be guests and clients, but it benefits our employees as well. When a workplace looks well cared for, those who work there can take pride in their role in that place. A tidy environment can actually increase team morale!

What we sometimes forget however, is that for high traffic areas, sometimes a once-a-day clean after hours simply isn't enough. To what areas am I referring? High-traffic areas may include entryways, lobbies, restrooms, break rooms, offices, laboratories, classrooms, etc. This is where a Day Porter service comes to the rescue. We can provide day porter services 8 hours a day in addition to your regular janitorial services to cover your needs.

When we hear the word porter, most of us think of a person in a hotel or airport who might help us carry luggage or other heavy loads. Think of your Sonlight Cleaning Service Day Porter as someone who carries the “appearance load” for your business! They take it upon themselves to ensure that those high-traffic areas have a consistently immaculate appearance throughout the day by emptying trash cans, restocking necessities in restrooms or break rooms, and cleaning frequently-used areas. And the best part? You can tailor these services to meet your specific needs.

Think about your place of business. Here are a few questions you may ask yourself to see if a Day Porter might be a good investment for you:

  • Which rooms or areas get the most traffic?
  • How do these spaces look by mid-day?
  • Do these spaces get used on some days more than others?
  • Have I ever noticed an overfilled trash can in a high-traffic area?
  • Do I sometimes see paper towels or toilet paper on the floor in the restroom?
  • Do we sometimes host special events that put more strain on our facilities (such as corporate parties, meetings, or public events)?

When it comes to the cleanliness of your facilities, first impressions count. Let a Sonlight Cleaning Services Day Porter carry the appearance load for you!
