Job Description for Housekeeper

The primary duties of a housekeeper are to clean and maintain their designated work area. This work area will vary from employer to employer; housekeepers commonly work in hotels, private homes, and assisted living facilities. At a large hotel, a housekeeper may be expected to clean several floors' worth of rooms; at a private residence, a housekeeper may be expected to clean a relatively small area. Regardless of location, housekeepers can be expected to clean bathrooms, dust furniture, replenish supplies of soap and paper products, clean doors and windows, replace light bulbs, change and launder bed sheets and towels, and other activities that contribute to ensuring their assigned areas are clean and welcoming. Much of a housekeeper's daily work is autonomous; housekeepers are given their assigned area and are expected to complete their work in a set amount of time. Housekeepers should also expect to have their work evaluated on a regular basis and will most likely be held to a cleanliness standard set by their employer.
