What does it take to have the skills for cleaners? That’s actually a pretty great question – lucky you have come to just the right place.

Working as a cleaner may involve tidying, scrubbing, wiping, washing, dusting, vacuuming, mopping or polishing furniture, work areas and machinery. Cleaners may be employed in a variety of areas such as within domestic, industrial, health, education and public settings. Cleaners may work irregular hours or split shifts, and may undertake work on a full-time, part-time or casual basis.

Depending on the role, cleaners may work outside (for example cleaning graffiti) or inside (for example cleaning offices). Many cleaners work for businesses, factories, hospitals or cleaning companies.

So what skills for cleaners do you need? Read below:

  • You need to have attention to detail to ensure you do not miss areas as you go through your cleaning checklist.
  • You need to be thorough yet efficient with all your tasks – from sweeping floors to disinfecting bathrooms – to ensure you are done by the time your shift is over.
  • Those who work independently need to be self-driven, while those who are part of a team should know how to collaborate with others and follow instructions from supervisors.
  • Time management skills are important to make sure that you complete your assigned tasks during your shift, and you need physical stamina to spend hours on your feet, pushing, pulling, and lifting cleaning equipment.
