Have a question about some aspect of working at NIH? Use our feedback form to post an anonymous query, and we'll try to provide an answer.
Feedback: Stairway rails and doors (especially around door bar) are disgustingly dirty in most buildings, especially 10 and 13. Is there any way they can be cleaned at least once every few months? For an Institute of Health, this sure goes against the grain.
Response from the Office of Research Facilities
Every effort is made to keep the hand rails and door knobs clean. With as many staff members and visitors on campus every day as NIH hosts, you can imagine the challenge. If you believe an aspect of a building’s interior is being missed during routine cleaning, don’t hesitate to contact the ORF Maintenance Line on (301) 435-8000 or https://58000.nih.gov and the issue will be addressed. This is the quickest and most effective route to have any facility maintenance issue resolved.
