Custodial Services Provided: 

  • Restrooms
  • Classrooms
  • Laboratories
  • Walkways
  • Snow/Ice mitigation etc...

Note: Custodians are responsible for hand snow shoveling walkways around their assigned buildings. This additional duty takes them away from their interior duties. During inclement weather our staff performs the following duties in the following order: Snow shoveling, restroom cleaning, classroom cleaning, public area cleaning, and if time allows then they start on laboratories and finally offices. This may mean that these latter space types are skipped for the week.
