Job Description for Housecleaner
Simply put, the objective of a house-cleaner is to ensure the cleanliness and tidiness of a customer's home. House-cleaners are either hired independently through direct negotiation with customers, or by an employer who instructs him/her to work at given location while meeting several employer-mandated requirements, such as a valid driver's license and car insurance.Read More...
Applicants for the position should have at least a high school diploma, proficiency in English, and daytime work availability; in some cases, house-cleaners may be able to schedule their own shifts. Trust is a must-have quality, as the job may be necessary when the customer is not home for days or weeks at a time. Tools used on the job include vacuum cleaners, mops, broom, dustpans, dusters, rags, sponges, buckets, and microfiber cloths.
Every environment in which a house-cleaner works is a different experience; customers may require tasks such as feeding pets or not entering specific rooms. House-cleaners must be able to adapt to different situations within homes and be proactive problem-solvers when conflicts arise. Some house-cleaning jobs may not just be solo acts, as employers may call upon multiple house-cleaners to clean, so being a strong team-player is also important. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
