When your customers expect pristine facilities 24/7, you have two choices. You can either hire an employee for the specific purpose of meeting these cleanliness standards, and equip them with everything they’ll need to do the job, or you can choose a day porter service to meet your cleaning needs.
What is Day Porter Service?
Day Porter Service is when a local commercial cleaning company provides one or more team members to clean your facility during operating hours. The Day Porter removes trash, cleans floors, cleans the bathroom, cleans the windows, and other tasks as agreed to keep your facility looking fantastic.
What is the Advantage of Choosing a Day Porter Over Hiring an Employee to Clean?
There are several advantages to choosing a day porter over hiring an employee to clean. First is the speed with which you can get your cleaning needs met. Hiring anyone for any position involves a time consuming process of posting the job, screening applicants, choosing the right person – hoping that they’ve told the truth about their cleaning skills and work ethic, onboarding this individual, paperwork and payroll – whereas hiring a day porter starts with a 3 minute quote and ends with a trained professional cleaner available almost instantly.
You also save money by hiring a day porter. The costs of a day porter are limited to what the cleaning company charges. Hiring an employee, by contrast, includes payroll, benefits, and increases to your other costs such as workman’s comp and uninsurance. There’s also training and supervision costs with an employee that you don’t have to pay when you choose day porter service.
Choosing a day porter service provides companies with some degree of flexibility when needs change. If the need for day porter service diminishes, you simply call the commercial cleaning company to adjust your contract for fewer hours. If your need for cleaning increases during busy times, more day porters are available with just a simple call to the customer care center.
