Have you ever wondered how a mall or a public building always looks so clean despite the fact that you hardly see anyone cleaning it? And with so much people traffic? Well, the mall is clean because a day porter has seen to it. Day porters are part of the custodial staff of commercial buildings where they are expected to clean and maintain areas of public use. This may include cleaning bathrooms, floors and waste management.

The following cover letter sample lets you customize your own cover letter in accordance to the day porter job that you are applying for.

Mr. Thomas Ashton
Manager HR
Building Values
34 Ohe Street
Waimanalo, HI 90414


Dear Mr. Ashton:

I am interested in working at Building Values as a Day Porter. Cleanliness is my passion and I take pride in doing it with precision and hard work. You may have visited The Eastside Mall in Waimanalo which is where I work as a Day Porter and you must have seen the absolute pristine condition it is in. I have played a huge part in it looking the way it does!

I presently hold a supervisory position which allows me to both practice cleaning activities and ensuring that the work of others under my wing is done appropriately. Maintaining acute standards of cleaning is all in a day’s work for me and I take safe cleaning practices very seriously. I have finely tuned knowledge of maintaining and cleaning offices, recreation areas, parking lots, lobbies and even pools. In most cases, I am invisible as I understand that a person in this position need not be seen so I work around visitors. My knowledge of electrical cleaning tools is advanced and I can use hand tools just as well.

My resume is enclosed with this letter and I may be contacted at (444) 444-4444 if you need further information or reference that will help augment my claims here.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Bill Yates
