DAVIS, CA — No matter the time, day or night, nearly 200 custodians work to ensure that both cleanliness and safety are continuously maintained throughout the entire UC Davis campus, according to The California Aggie.

From classrooms and lecture halls to laboratories and offices, the daily experience of custodians drastically differs based upon their stationed location, the article stated.

"Every day is different for custodians depending on where they work," said Remedios Sarabias, principal supervisor of custodial services.

"They are really good, hardworking people and it’s much more than just vacuuming and cleaning. The custodians make the environment friendly and they are a central part of this campus," said Bill Rumley, the director of custodial services.

According to the article, the presence of camaraderie and friendship is inherently apparent when attending a custodial meeting.

"It is important to work in a place with a nice environment. You don't want to work in a place where everyone is grumpy and no one smiles," said custodian Shafeena Shah.
