Non-Routine Carpet Cleaning

To schedule carpet cleaning , please contact Janet Vigil at 970-491-5650. You will be contacted by the custodial supervisor for your building. They will provide you a fixed cost and work with you to schedule the work to be performed. If you are not satisfied with our work, please contact Janet immediately.

Outside Window Cleaning

Due to many factors, (special equipment needed, high risk to employees in some areas, weather limitations forcing the work to be performed in a short time) we provide window cleaning services only for the outside lower levels of selected buildings. We can, however, provide these services through a contractor at your department's expense.

If you would like to have the outside of your windows cleaned, please contact us at 970-491-0077 and we will arrange for a window cleaning contractor who has been approved by our Purchasing Department to contact you, provide an estimate, and schedule the work to be performed. If you are not satisfied with the work of the contractor, please contact us immediately.

Window Blind Cleaning

We will, as part of our normal maintenance services, dust your window blinds once per year. We will also be the first to tell you that this is not nearly frequently enough to create a clean appearance or healthy environment. However, the cost to actually remove and ultrasonically clean all of our window blinds on campus would be in the range of $100,000 annually. For this reason, we have chosen not to use our resources to provide this service. We have elected to provide this service, upon request, through a private contractor and at your expense.

If you would like to have your window blinds cleaned, please contact us at 970-491-0077. We will then contact a window blind cleaning contractor who has been approved by our Purchasing Department to provide services on campus. The contractor will then contact you, provide an estimate, and schedule the work to be performed. Charges for horizontal blinds will range from $7 to $14 per blind. Vertical blinds will be in the $1 per slat range.

If you are not satisfied with the work of the contractor, please contact us immediately. Please do not contact a contractor on your own. The contractor must be approved through the Purchasing Department and meet all of the necessary insurance and bonding requirements.

Locking and Unlocking Doors

The individual building custodian is responsible for unlocking and locking all building entries on the main campus, as well as select classrooms within the building. Buildings are unlocked by 7:00 AM Monday through Friday. On weekends and holidays, only those buildings scheduled through the campus scheduling office will be unlocked. Actual building lock-up time is agreed to depending on the individual building usage and need. Schedules are worked out between the Facilities Management Customer Service Center (970-491-0107) and the building proctor.

Our custodial staff will not unlock and provide access to buildings after hours when they are normally secured. The custodial staff will not unlock individual offices for faculty or staff members who have forgotten their keys. This is not our attempt to deny services, it is our attempt to protect the assets of the University.

Pest Control - Indoors

This service is provided by Building Services Custodial Section, at our expense, through a private contractor. If you have a need for this service, please call 970-491-0077, and a time will be scheduled to perform the service.
