As businesses begin reopening, business owners must consider the health and safety of everyone who enters their building. Across the world, we all share a unanimous goal- staying healthy. And as the country gets back to work, business owners are taking additional safety measures to protect employee and visitor health. Now more than ever, it’s absolutely necessary to have disinfecting protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The trend among business owners who are taking these extra precautions is round-the-clock disinfection. In order to achieve this, regular nightly janitorial services are supplemented with a day porter to ensure constant cleaning coverage. If your business has employees or customers entering your facility, day porter disinfecting services are highly recommended.
When speaking with our customers, we’ve found that many people aren’t familiar with the short and long term benefits of a day porter. In this blog, we will explain what a day porter is and their value with combating COVID-19 in the workplace.
What is a Day Porter?
Day porters are often the unseen heroes of a facility. These valued team members clean, but they also help support the image of your facility and ensure that customers, employees, and tenants are satisfied. A day porter is defined as someone who is stationed within your workplace and assists in cleaning duties throughout the day. Working in conjunction with the nightly crew, day porters help to provide cross shift continuity. Instead of waiting for the nightly janitorial crew to do extensive cleanings, day porters provide ongoing support with cleaning and maintenance tasks to keep up with the level of traffic throughout the day. Day porters are an integral part of a fully managed facility service solution.
The Value of Day Porters During Pandemia
Day porters provide facility managers and business owners with an invaluable service – they keep your facility clean and sanitized but, most importantly, in this time of uncertainty, they provide visibility to customers and staff that the space they are in is safe and disinfected.
Day porters provide vital services to keep your employees & customers healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, including:
– Continuous sanitizing of high touch points throughout the day (Elevator buttons, door handles, light switches, restrooms fixtures, coffee machines, etc.)
– Frequent disinfecting of communal areas as they get used (Lobbies, elevators, kitchens, break rooms, restrooms, conference rooms, etc.)
– Replenishment of supplies such as soap, paper towels and hand sanitizers as frequent hand washing causes an increase in demand for these items
– Distribution of hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and other PPE as visitors enter your building
