Custodial Methods and Procedures Manual. Revised.
Lober, Irene M.
This manual presents practical methods and procedures to help school custodians ensure safe, functioning facilities and to reflect the district's standards. The guide begins with brief discussions of custodial organization, staff relationships, and maintenance staff. The section "Job Descriptions by Titles" lists functions of custodial positions. "Cleaning Procedures and "Cleaning Methods" are two sections devoted to effective times and techniques for cleaning building areas; problems common to most schools--for example, maintaining auditoriums and preparing wood floors for dancing--are addressed. After discussing custodial equipment storage and care, the manual touches on preventive maintenance, safety precautions, fire prevention, energy use guidelines, personnel forms, and policy statements.
