What Are Commercial Cleaning Duties and Responsibilities - Clearwater, Palm Harbor & Tampa, Florida

Commercial Cleaning Duties 101

Commercial housekeepers ensure a commercial establishment is clean, sanitized and presentable.

Almost all commercial establishments require some form of professional cleaning to keep their establishment clean and presentable to the general public. Commercial cleaners provide these services. These professionals may work for an established commercial cleaning company or they may work directly for the commercial establishment. As of 2010, CBSalary listed a national average salary of $23,922 per year for this occupation.

Daily Cleaning

Larger corporations perform their cleaning services on daily basis. Daily responsibilities include trash removal, bathroom sanitization, horizontal dusting, floor care, break room and appliance cleaning, spot cleaning for finger prints and other general cleaning duties. Depending on the contract between the company and cleaning vendor, other responsibilities may include restocking of bathroom supplies, patrolling the grounds of the commercial establishment to pick up trash and making sure the entranceway to the establishment is clean and presentable.

Weekly Cleaning

Most small to mid size businesses will rely on a weekly cleaning service. This type of service will include most of the services included in a daily service but will also include extra services such as high and low dusting, base board cleaning, cleaning window sills,  dusting blinds, polishing desks and other housekeeping duties as needed. Not all of these services are performed each week, such as dusting overhead fans or the base of chairs. The cleaners will usually rotate certain functions like high dusting one week, low dusting the next, detailed vacuuming in hard to reach place another week and  base board cleaning the following week. Using the proper rotation ensures all functions get done at least one a month and keep the establishment looking clean and presentable.
