A trend that we have noticed in recent years is the shift towards daytime cleaning for office environments. Some workplaces choose staggered programs, using both day and evening cleaners to keep their building looking its best, while others prefer to rely solely on day porters and matrons.
Whatever arrangement is ideal for your office, incorporating day porter or matron services into your cleaning routine can be an effective way to ensure energy savings, tenant satisfaction, and consistent results.
Keep reading to explore a few advantages of using day porter or matron services to keep your office clean and tidy:
1. Reduced Office Complaints
The number one cleaning complaint among office-building tenants is that washroom facilities are unclean. Because cleaning personnel typically clean during the nightshift, instead of operating continuously over the course of the business day, washrooms can quickly become soiled from regular use.
Switching to day porter services means washrooms, break areas, kitchens, meeting rooms, and other high-traffic zones will be constantly supervised and touched up to maintain high cleaning standards.
Ultimately day porter and matron services can be good for both the environment and your bottom line.
3. Improved Employee Health and Accountability
Relying on the same day porter (or day porter and matron crew) to look after your office space enables tenants to develop trusted working relationships with the cleaning staff. Your employees become more comfortable in approaching cleaners with on-the-spot issues and feel more satisfied with the quality of the service provided.
Daytime cleaning is often also better for cleaners themselves. Working alone without much regular, healthy interaction with other people makes for dispiriting work conditions and can lead to higher rates of turnover among overnight cleaners.
Cleaning staff tend to be happier and work more productively during regular business hours when they can interact with other people and be more accountable for their work as they are visible to all.
