Stairways Cleaning Schedules

All stairways have a set schedule of what is cleaned weekly and monthly. Custodial offers additional services on a recharge basis. If you are interested, see services and rates here.

Weekly

  • All tiled stairs are swept; carpeted stairs are vacuumed.
  • Minor stains are spot-cleaned.
  • All rails and other level surfaces are dusted.

Monthly

  • All areas of the stairwell are dusted including HVAC vents, window sills, baseboards, and fixtures.
  • Cobwebs removed.

What to expect

  • Carpet and tile are clean but may be worn in high traffic areas. Certain carpet and/or tile stains will remain if we are not able to remove them with spot cleaning techniques. Between weekly and/or monthly surface cleanings, dust build-up and fingerprints may noticeable.
