Janitorial

The Building cleaning specifications require that your office space be cleaned nightly Monday through

Friday, with the exception of building holidays, and that all common areas and restroom facilities throughout the building be maintained to the highest standard of cleanliness. There is no janitorial service on the weekends unless special arrangements have been made thru the management office.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to request your assistance in maintaining the neat and clean appearance of the building. We would greatly appreciate it if you and your staff immediately reported any cleaning and maintenance problems such as carpet stains, graffiti and lights out in public areas or elevators to the management office.
