The basic function of the custodial department is to maintain the appearance, cleanliness, and preservation of the facilities, but also includes event set-ups.
For last-minute changes to your event setup discovered within 1 hour of your event, please phone the main Facilities number at right. But if you discover a change needed with more time to spare, please contact the individual who scheduled your event room.
The custodial tasks include cleaning/sanitizing, trash/recycle removal, and floor and carpet care, and dusting as time permits. Each custodian has an assigned area to clean while also helping with coverage of the areas of custodians on leave, event set-ups, moving of boxes during office moves, and snow removal.
Scheduled tasks include floor scrubbing and waxing, carpet cleaning, window cleaning, and changing light tubes and lamps. Recycling is collected and taken to distribution sites. The majority of the custodial staff works 10:00 p.m.to 6:30 a.m.
