Hi, can you please upload your save file as well. It can tell us more. Also just a side note: If the floor is not part of any room or it belongs to department with no janitors, it will not be cleaned. Can you please double check if that is not the case? Thank you

Thank you for the save file. And it is as I mentioned before. You have 8 janitors for General Surgery department. You need to have janitors on other departments too for the floors on other departments to be cleaned as well. Adding them to their departments will solve this. Have a great day

I don't think you actually run the save file and see what is happening.  From what I observe, the game's AI for custodians are not department specific and start from the closest dirtiest tile and perform cleaning (some time that calculate from the time they get the cleaning cart and some times they don't) and will travel to other floors / department when no other tiles require cleaning.  Also all department custodians will clean bloodied tiles since all department have the possibility of patient in shock or blood loss in surgery.

Because of that it makes no sense that in my current save the 5 custodians during the day will clean all dirty tiles in all department but not the blood tiles, I cannot diagnose if that's a graphical bug or AI bug.  The custodians will literally clean the tile next to the blood but not the bloodied one.  I've even change the department that the cleaning closet belongs to (from general surgery to ER) and the blood tiles will still not be mopped.

Hi, it looks like you're both right - there was a bug, but the solution Ondrej suggested and tested on your map (janitors on all departments) also works of course, at least as a workaround.
The problem with blood outside of janitor's department will be fixed in the next patch - and this is how janitors (will) prioritize their work:

- Blood on their department
- Dirt on their department
- Blood outside their department (the threshold for how bloody a tile needed to be to be cleaned was too high, causing the issue)
- Dirt outside their department

Cheers!
