TUCSON, AZ — Custodial and maintenance crews at the University of Arizona utilize winter break to prepare residence halls for new and returning students, according to the Arizona Daily Wildcat.

The students might have been on vacation, but residence halls were being fixed and deep cleaned, the article stated.

"When the students are here, you are basically picking up after them," said June Barile, a Residence Life Facilities custodian for the last five years.

"But, when they are gone, we can close off areas and get to work," Barile added.

According to the article, during the two-week break, all residence halls undergo an extensive and thorough cleaning and repair schedule to evaluate aspects of the facilities that cannot be taken care of when students reside in the buildings.

The list of projects includes scrubbing and disinfecting all community surfaces, cleaning floors, replacing damaged items like broken handles or doors and checking out vacant dorm rooms, the article noted.
