Qualifications of a Day Porter

Day porters are in charge of maintaining and cleaning the grounds of commercial buildings and centers, such as malls and shopping centers, among others. They make sure that the external appearance of a site or facility is in good condition, including:

  • Landscaping (trees, flowerbeds, shrubs)
  • Debris removal (sidewalks and parking lots)
  • Repairing chipped paint
  • Power washing walls
  • Trash removal (sidewalks and parking lots)

While different day porter jobs have different responsibilities and require different qualifications, some of the most common qualifications (and the ones our day porters possess) include physical stamina, interpersonal skills, mechanical skills, familiarity with cleaning tools as well as cleaning power tools, and attention to detail.

Cost of Hiring a Day Porter

EMS does not charge a flat fee for day porter duties because responsibilities vary from project to project.
