Job Description for Night Cleaner
Night cleaners, who typically work in large office buildings and similar facilities, arrive nightly and help maintain their cleanliness and organization in a variety of ways, such as cleaning floors and emptying trash. They may be hired by the building's own management company, but may also work for dedicated cleaning businesses and as subcontractors to clean offices, retail spaces, and restaurants after hours.Read More...
Night cleaners typically perform general cleaning and upkeep duties, including vacuuming carpeted floors, sweeping/mopping tiled or hardwood floors, emptying wastebaskets, and cleaning bathrooms. Most also have light maintenance and restocking duties, such as changing out disposables in restrooms and replacing burnt-out light bulbs. They often have specific, specialized cleaning instructions for certain intervals of time, which can include extra dusting, applying floor polish or carpet shampoo, or working with metal polishes.
Educational requirements are not strict for this position; most night cleaners must simply have clean work histories and criminal records to pass the proper bonding and background checks required to work in buildings unsupervised and after-hours. Night cleaners generally work overnight hours in fairly quiet work environments.
