How to become a Housekeeper?

Nearly all building cleaning workers, with the exception of supervisors, have a high school degree or a lesser educational qualification and for the most part learn their skills with on the job training. There are a few who will attend some informal training sessions organized by their employers. Supervisors usually have at least a high school diploma and often some college qualification.

There really is no special education required for most entry-level janitorial or cleaning jobs. Workers should be good at following instructions and have the ability to learn quickly.

For example a housekeeper in a hotel may be required to not only clean but to deliver other items such as ironing boards, cribs or more towels to a guest's room. While in a hospital, housekeeping personnel may be required to clean bed frames, make beds and disinfect cleaning implements. Other businesses may have requirements that include the use of electric floor polishing machines or special cleaning solutions.

However, workers are required to learn the proper use of their equipment and chemical cleaners to avoid causing harm to floors, fixtures, the occupants of the building and indeed themselves.
