What are Day Porter services? These vital janitorial and support workers operate in the background and are a critical aspect of keeping businesses running smoothly for your team members and customers.
During business hours, they help to keep your workplace and facility clean and sanitized while keeping important supplies in stock.

Day Porters work hard so you can focus on what matters while having peace of mind that 'the little things' are being taken care of consistently and at a high level of quality.
During the warmer months of late spring and summer, commercial property owners begin to think about performing preventive and deferred maintenance on their buildings. There are many projects that can only be completed during this all-too-brief time period and it’s invaluable to have a maintenance checklist in place to guarantee you’re covering all of your bases.
A building owner’s top priorities are maintaining and increasing the value of the property and ensuring the safety and satisfaction of tenants. And while keeping up with the multitude of projects can be exhausting, neglect can lead to even more expensive repairs and unfortunate outcomes. Our simple facility maintenance checklists will help you remember important high-level tasks to help keep your building in great condition for years to come.
Spring is the perfect time to tackle your facility maintenance to-do list and address any issues with the exterior of your commercial building and property. Commercial building services companies book up quicky during spring and summer, so be sure to schedule your project a few months ahead of time. Building services experts will help you maximize the warmer months to get your building in great shape for seasons to come.
What should be included on a building maintenance to-do list?
In addition to servicing your building’s exterior, spring/summer is the perfect time to address any deferred maintenance or other concerns with your parking lot and walkways. As weather permits, make sure to inspect your fences and gates, exterior paint, signage, siding, and your building’s roof and gutters. Check your landscaping and sprinkler systems to ensure everything is in proper order. The more maintenance projects you can complete at once, the better.
A growing number of companies are recognizing the many benefits of a diverse workforce. Studies show that inclusion benefits the entire workplace with better morale, efficiency, and consumer reviews; and we know from over fifty-five years of first-hand experience that employing people with disabilities is good for business.
The strategies outlined below are designed to enhance inclusion in the workplace for people of all ages and all skill levels.
Natural Supports - Everyone Needs Them
Natural Supports may be environmental such as a digital clock, a posted schedule, or labels on items and locations. These items assist employees with learning their routines and not being dependent on others for help or information. The goal of any employment relationship is to have the employee as integrated into the environment as possible. This goal is no different with an employee who happens to have a disability.
As the weather begins to warm, now is the perfect time to think about scheduling your commercial pressure washing services before contractors book up for the season. Regular maintenance of your sidewalks, walkways, awning, signage, and other surfaces will ensure they remain safe and in good condition for years to come.
We offer a flexible service model and utilize top-of-the-line professional pressure washing equipment to deliver expert results. Various surfaces require different cleaning techniques and our experienced staff have the proper tools to get the job done correctly. Our professional team will remove oil, grease, mildew, dirt, and mold from around the exterior of your commercial property.
When was the last time the interior of your commercial building and office space got a fresh coat of paint? If you can’t quite remember, it’s most likely been too long. Over time, interior paint begins to discolor and look stale. It happens so gradually that it’s easy to overlook and ignore, but chances are your customers, tenants, and visitors have noticed.
Many commercial property owners put off the necessity of repainting their buildings until the bitter end, our commercial painting professionals make the work painless and plan ahead to minimize any needed downtime. Our carefully screened employees are trained and certified to perform any sized commercial paint job and we’re licensed, bonded, and insured to complete the work safely. From start to finish, we’ll partner with you every step of the way to ensure your painting project is completed successfully.

More than ever, it’s vital that your business and workspaces remain clean and in pristine condition. A properly sanitized facility helps to ensure the wellbeing of your customers and team members, while ultimately boosting your bottom line. Your spaces may seem fine at a glance, but it’s very likely important cleaning tasks are being missed or ignored entirely. The solution? Hire a professional cleaning and janitorial service provider.
Your reputation and brand are represented by your business's physical spaces and they should always look their best and make a great first impression. A professional cleaning company, like Northwest Center, will maintain your facility to the highest standards of quality.

It’s common to overlook the flooring and carpeting in your office, store, or facility, but it’s something all business owners, supervisors, and property managers need to pay attention to. Floorcare and general cleanliness in the workplace make a big impression on your customers and team members.
Professional floorcare specialists will keep your business sparkling and help you spot trouble areas. They can address problems early before they become expensive maintenance issues. With new COVID-19 CDC guidelines in place across the country, it’s more important than ever to focus on upkeep and proper sanitation.
You may assume that your staff or regular cleaning service is taking adequate care of your flooring, but that might not be the case. Great floorcare requires more than just vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping; when you work with a professional the results will speak for themselves.
