Custodial Services utilizes a zone and crew concept combined with station cleaning to perform general cleaning duties for all state supported facilities. Team Cleaning is still used at management’s discretion, depending on daily work load requirements. Routine daily services include cleaning, sanitizing, and restocking restrooms; vacuuming; dusting; spot cleaning and shampooing carpets; sweeping/mopping/stripping/waxing hard floors; cleaning white boards, trays and erasers; cleaning classroom tables and chairs; cleaning entryway glass doors; cleaning interior walls; cleaning and sanitizing drinking fountains; and emptying trash. Restrooms, common areas, and classrooms are serviced daily, but office (including trash removal) are serviced weekly. Under reduced cleaning, carpets are shampooed and hard floors are stripped and waxed once per year (additional cleaning can be requested at departmental expense). Other services include scheduling and coordinating annual exterior window cleaning (by departmental expense) and special event coverage/weekend cleaning. Faculty and Staff can submit a Facilities Work order request form for any services that they may need to have completed.
