CUSTODIAL SERVICES


Cleaning Schedules

The frequency with which the buildings are cleaned, combined with the types of cleaning required, are normally scheduled according to the availability of personnel and customer needs. In making assignments or responding to custodial service calls, Facilities Services' highest priorities are always based on considerations of safety and hygiene first, particularly in allocating resources to the scheduled maintenance of high-use restrooms, main entries, high-use hallways, classrooms, common areas, and offices. These schedules of routine and other maintenance are adjusted when special needs or emergencies arise. The department encourages all of its customers to report any problems they may encounter directly to the Work Control Center.

Our Custodians work in two shifts: a day shift and a night shift. This provides the best service we can deliver without interfering with the daily activities of the campus. Below is a list of our custodians' tasks and how often those tasks are done.

Off-Key Areas

  • Custodial services in off-key areas are provided when departments request service through the submission of an online Work Request form. The work request form must contain the date and time for the requested service. A member of the requesting department must be present to provide access to the area.

If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the Custodial Services Manager.
