Job Description for Custodian

Custodians are responsible for keeping buildings clean by picking up trash, sweeping, and mopping, as well as cleaning bathrooms and ensuring they are fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, and soap. Custodians also complete a number of other functions, such as cleaning windows, vacuuming, dusting, and emptying trash.

Custodians typically work in an indoor setting, although some may have outdoor duties such as shoveling snow, tending to a garden, raking leaves, and mowing grass. They work in a number of environments, which may include schools, churches, office buildings, stores and other businesses. Custodians work alongside other custodians and perform duties for anyone in the business that needs their service. They may work part time or full time, and the hours can range very widely; Some custodians can work as little as 15 hours in a week, and others work over 40 hours. The times at which the custodians work also varies, with some custodians working day shifts and others working night shifts.

There are no educational requirements for custodian positions, although some employers may prefer a high school diploma or equivalent.
