Traditional facility cleaning is an “out of sight, out of mind” process. The cleaners show up at night, clean the building, and are gone by the next morning. But a different approach to facility cleaning -- cleaning during daytime hours -- offers substantial financial and non-financial benefits for facility managers and building owners.

Day cleaning is not typical night cleaning performed during the day. Our Healthy High Performance Day Cleaning (HHPC), program consist of: sustainable cleaning practices, tools, equipment and chemicals with the addition of specific customer service techniques and a customized cleaning approach developed specifically for a daytime environment. The HHPC Day program produces several direct and indirect benefits.
Day cleaning can reduce the amount of electricity needed to light the building as the crews are now working mostly during daylight hours. In turn reduced electrical consumption lowers the amount of money spent on energy bills for the facility, decreasing operating costs. Staffing can occasionally be reduced by redundancies that are created with the overlap of day porter and night janitors now cleaning during daylight hours . This in turn reduces janitorial costs. Further, the use of water-based technology can potentially reduce a facility’s chemical procurement costs, resulting in an improved bottom line.
Day cleaning increases building occupants’ perception of cleaning as they witness the process. This results in more satisfied building occupants who have far fewer concerns about cleaning in the workplace. Day cleaning is also a socially responsible program giving more dignity to works and allowing them to spend time at home with their families in the evenings rather than working through the night.
