In addition, most of the highly utilised buildings also have daytime janitorial staff present to freshen up bathrooms and kitchens and restock supplies. They also undertake any emergency cleaning which arises. Sometimes these cleaners are shared between a few buildings, depending on the level of use.

Programmed cleaning at less frequent intervals also occurs, such as scrubbing and buffing floors, shampooing carpets and washing windows.
