Building Caretaker Services – Duties and Responsibilities

Building caretaker services include an advanced level of janitorial services where day to day operation of the building is managed especially for large buildings and condominium communities. The building caretaker acts as the resident manager who is expected to be at location five days a week.

Building caretaker services include managing inventory of supplies, Programming entry fobs as necessary, Inform property manager of building deficiencies, Salting of entry points and minor snow removal, Minor repairs like painting, door handles, drywall etc., Monitoring the parking space, Emergency call outs, Oversee property lighting, Arrange elevator bookings etc.

For smaller buildings, a dedicated caretaker can take care of few tasks like coordinating access for trades and programming fobs. An economical alternative could be to hire a caretaker who can provide few of the building caretaker services along with janitorial services. This can be an incremental cost on top of the regular janitorial service, rather than hiring a dedicated individual for the caretaker services.
