What Are Porter Services? Why Do I Need Them?

As a business owner with a business frequented by customers, you may find yourself in need of Porter Services. If you are unfamiliar with commercial services, you might find yourself asking questions like, “What are porter services, What will they do for my business, and do I really need these services?”

A good day porter company can become the silent heroes of your business. These professionals clean and support the daily mission of your business. Our day porters ensure that customers, employees, and others who visit your facility are satisfied by keeping your facility clean and in good repair. This is an invaluable service. As a business owner, your to-do list is ever growing, which is where a day porter can help. We do the work helping you cross some items off your list. A porter primarily functions as a day-time janitorial and light maintenance service, but with a few extra benefits. Some of the most common services performed by Asphalt Commercial Property Maintenance porters include:

  • Lobby maintenance
  • Restroom restocking and sanitation
  • Removing trash
  • Cleaning communal areas
  • Meeting setup/tear down
  • Litter pick-up
  • Wiping down of window sills, phone booths, trash cans, mailboxes, signs and door frames
  • Changing plastic trash can liners
  • Mopping
  • Gum removal
  • Graffiti removal
  • Landscape watering
  • Returning shopping carts to their appropriate stores
  • Spot Pressure-Washing Services
  • Window cleaning
  • Any specific service you request

The duties of a porter will depend on your facility needs. You provide a list of duties to perform each day, and a scheduled deadline to complete cleaning and maintenance tasks. Unlike a janitorial cleaning service that comes in after closing, a porter works directly alongside you, your employees, and customers, which helps you to present your facility in the best light possible. Porters can help with any task that comes up to help your business operations run more smoothly.

A day porter service can be very beneficial to any business by helping to keep your building clean, well maintained, and in good working order. If you are ready to explore the many ways your business could benefit from a day porter, contact Asphalt Commercial Property Maintenance today!
