What is a Day Porter?
You may never have heard the term “Porter”, but in any commercial facility, their duties are a crucial part of keeping a commercial facility clean and running smoothly. A Porter, sometimes called Day Porter, is someone on site at a commercial space or facility who’s job is to clean, maintain and watch out for overall cleanliness. While a janitorial service or cleaning staff may clean from top to bottom at night, a porter is there during the day, to make sure a space stays tidy while it’s in use.
There a few reasons to consider adding a day porter service to your facility maintenance solutions. Porters are great for keeping a positive appearance at your facility or commercial space, and they’re versatile. Whether you’re a school, office or industrial space, day porters can be a great way to manage the day to day details of keeping a facility safe and healthy.
To give you an even clearer picture of these services, we’ve outlined three industries where day porters can make a huge impact. For each scenario, we’ll cover the value they bring, the duties they fulfill and the soft skills needed for someone in this role.
