Janitor Jobs

Janitor Job Overview

Janitors, also known as Building Cleaners or Custodians, are the workers responsible for the general upkeep and maintenance of a property. They clean spills, mop the floors, wash windows and perform other cleaning tasks on the interior of a building. Janitors often handle the cleaning of the outside of a building as well. They need to understand how to use different types of tools and equipment, including snow blowers and pressure washers. Building Cleaners must keep the property safe for those who work there and any visitors. Other tasks associated with the job include ordering new supplies when needed, performing minor repairs and locking all doors at night.

Janitor Job Education Requirements

While most janitorial positions only require a high school diploma or its equivalent, the job does require that workers have some strong math skills, familiarity with different cleaning supplies and equipment, and the ability to read and comprehend the English language. Mixing chemicals and cleaning supplies is a routine part of the job, and Janitors must know which supplies they can and cannot mix. Several organizations offer certification for those hoping to make more money or demonstrate proficiency in the field.

Janitor Job Market

Though the job outlook for Janitors isn't high, it will grow at the same rate as other maintenance and related industries. Between 2012 and 2022, approximately 280,000 new building cleaning jobs will become available, which indicates a growth rate of 12 percent. Airport Maintenance jobs will likely increase at a similar rate, and these jobs have many of the same requirements as Janitor jobs. Those willing to go through some on-the-job training can make more money as a Pest Control Specialist.
