Hi,

Incorrect. "There" is an adverb of place. For example "Put it down over there."

The toilets receive their main thorough clean during the night shift.

Correct.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum Jambo. You might like to revisit the About Me section of your profile. It does not seem as if it can all be correct as it is currently written.
