job description

Industrial Cleaner

Industrial cleaners are responsible for cleaning non-domestic properties such as warehouses, hospitals, prisons, schools, and corporate offices. They also ensure that work environments are healthy and safe for the other employees who work in the building. Industrial cleaners may work during the day, but most work after the bulk of the workforce has left the building, such as after 5:00 PM. This is a full-time, entry-level position that doesn't usually require any kind of formal education. These professionals may also work overtime hours as needed.


Industrial cleaners may work in a variety of different settings and will often clean multiple buildings of various types. Some industrial cleaners may need to be aware of hazards or cleaning standards in certain buildings. Regardless, most industrial cleaners perform these core responsibilities:

Clean the Building

Industrial cleaners are responsible for cleaning entire buildings or portions of buildings. This may include cleaning bathrooms, mopping tile, and vacuuming carpets, among other specific cleaning duties.

Empty Waste Receptacles

Industrial cleaners ensure all waste baskets are emptied before employees come in for the day. Once trash cans are emptied, industrial cleaners transport the trash bags to the building?s dumpster for trash collection.

Remove Graffiti and Other Vandalism

Sometimes, offices are vandalized with graffiti and other kinds of property damage. It is the industrial cleaner?s responsibility to remove the vandalism or report it so that it can be properly fixed in a timely manner.

Clean Building Exterior

Industrial cleaners are responsible for cleaning the exterior of the building. This typically involves picking up trash and washing ground floor windows.

Notify Employees of Hazards

During their shift, industrial cleaners may identify potential safety hazards for employees who work during the day. They may also clean in a way that leaves safety hazards. AS such, industrial cleaners are responsible for notifying employees of those hazards using warning signs such as wet floor signs.

Working hours: 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM


Attention to detail


Positive attitude

Good work ethic


Industrial Cleaner Skills and Qualifications

Successful industrial cleaners are tireless and can stand on their feet for extended periods of time. People who enjoy cleaning and organizing make great fits for this role. Employers look for industrial cleaners who are efficient and effective in everything they do. They also prefer to hire candidates who possess and demonstrate the following skills and qualifications:

Work without Supervision ? Industrial cleaners should be able to work under little to no supervision. They are often the only person working in an entire building and should have no problem doing so

Physical Fitness ? Cleaning non-domestic buildings can be physically demanding, and industrial cleaners should be able to handle the strenuous work. They should be able to lift, climb, and stand without any problem

Previous Cleaning Experience ? Employers like to hire industrial cleaners with previous cleaning experience so that they don?t have to train new employees as thoroughly

Personal Integrity ? Since industrial workers often work alone near sensitive materials, they hold a high level of personal integrity and can remain focused on the job at hand

Time Management ? Successful industrial cleaners are efficient and finish their work in a timely manner
