When day cleaning, custodial staffs must be conscious to minimize office interruptions. In most cases, this is easily done through cooperation with building occupants.

Many facilities have experienced day cleaning success by limiting the amount of times custodial workers enter occupant cubes to empty trash. Instead, building occupants empty their own trash into a centralized receptacle at the end of the day and the cleaner removes it from the facility.

Cleaning around building occupants can be effective by training cleaners on how to interface with occupants, how to be minimally invasive in their office space and how to be empathetic and flexible when changes to the schedule occur.
