Standard janitorial services are provided five (5) days per week (Monday - Friday), except for certain Building holidays. Standard nightly service includes cleaning common area restrooms, the removal of trash and recycling materials, vacuuming, dusting, the cleaning of surfaces in tenant kitchens including mopping and buffing tile floors, entry door glass and spot carpet cleaning.
It does not include the washing of dishes, glasses, coffeepots, utensils, or the cleaning of refrigerators, microwaves, restrooms and showers within the tenant’s Leased Premises. These are above-standard services and are available through the Property Management Office for an additional charge.
Tenants shall not employ any janitorial service or other person to clean the Leased Premises, other than the janitorial service of the Building, without the express written permission of the Property Management Office, unless otherwise specified in the Lease.
Disposal of any item that will not fit into the usual trash receptacles should be coordinated through the Property Management Office during office hours. The Property Management Office will generate a work ticket to have the trash removed. Important papers, boxes, maps, plans, and the like, should not be left on or near waste baskets and recycling bins, for fear that they will be mistaken for trash.
Cardboard boxes intended for disposal must be flattened and stacked within the Leased Premises and clearly marked "trash" or “basura” (Spanish for “trash”) in order for them to be removed. To have these removed during the day, call the Property Management Office. A member of the Housekeeping staff will be dispatched to assist you.
