Cleaning Jobs

Cleaning Job Overview

People who work in cleaning jobs keep indoor and exterior premises tidy. Some may work in hotels or extended-stay apartments, while others might primarily be employed by schools, hospitals, businesses and government buildings. Typical responsibilities include:
  • Sweeping floors
  • Cleaning bathrooms
  • Making beds
  • Disposing of garbage
  • Vacuuming
  • Restocking toiletry items
Cleaners who work outdoors are usually required to keep the premises safe and free of hazards by doing tasks like clearing walkways, shoveling snow and mowing lawns. Some cleaners work night and weekend hours, especially if they work for businesses and cannot start tasks until buildings are empty. If you're a night owl, you might be very happy in an evening office cleaning job. Cleaners usually must handle physical labor and spend extended periods on their feet.

Cleaning Job Education Requirements

Because much of a cleaner's training happens on the job, a person seeking entry-level job as a cleaner usually is not required to have a high school degree. However, individuals who want to work as Maintenance Managers in positions requiring them to oversee a large number of cleaners and repairmen will likely be expected to have at least a high school diploma and may be required to take management classes. Additionally, cleaners who work in hazardous environments where exposure to bodily fluids is common may need to get certified through a program that teaches how to stay safe from blood-borne pathogens.

Cleaning Job Market

Job prospects for maids and housekeepers are projected to increase by 13 percent from 2012 to 2022, and there's a similar increase expected for janitors. Overall job opportunities are favorable, especially for people who have experience and training. Cleaners can often be used for multiple jobs around a business, such as being a painter, if they are willing to take on more roles.

Because the cleaning industry has a high turnover rate, there are consistent openings across the country as people leave the workforce. Some cleaners only work seasonally, so it may be easier for people to find available work in popular vacation destinations that have a lot of hotels or resorts.

Cleaning Job Salary Information

In May 2012, the median annual wage for housekeepers and maids was $19,570. However, the wage increased to slightly under $23,000 for people employed at hospitals. Janitors, on the other hand, earned an average of $22,690 per year although those positions often included a building maintenance component that went beyond keeping premises tidy.
