Cleaner Courses

A Cleaner performs various cleaning tasks for clients in a range of settings. You might work in private homes, for commercial offices or in other settings such as schools or hospitals. Cleaners may specialise in a particular type of cleaning such as exterior cleans or carpet cleaning or you may provide more generalised services including vacuuming or mopping floors, wiping down surface areas and disposing of rubbish.

Cleaners should be able to manage their time and work to a cleaning schedule. You may have to prioritise your tasks and work well in a team environment. Cleaners should have excellent attention to detail and a strong focus on customer service. Depending on your role, you may have to work irregular hours including nights and weekends.
