Lately, we have received a lot of calls from our customers who were not sure whether they need to book a janitorial service or a cleaning service. This confusion came from the fact that they were simply not aware if there was any difference between a cleaner and a janitor. For this reason, today’s post is dedicated to outlining the differences and helping people towards making more informed service choices in the future.
What are the duties of a cleaner?
There are various types of cleaners but basically, they can be regular cleaners (also knows as house cleaning maids), heavy-duty one-off home cleaners, post construction cleaners, and office cleaners who are mainly doing commercial cleaning. A cleaner is normally responsible for hoovering or mopping the floors, cleaning the windows, wiping the dust from all the surfaces, and sometimes he may be even doing household chores like ironing, doing the laundry, changing the bed linen, feeding the pets, and washing the dishes.
What are the duties of a janitor?
Janitorial services are a bit broader than cleaning services since a janitor has more duties than a cleaner. Janitors are normally hired to clean and maintain an entire public building. This means that their duties include the duties of the regular house cleaner plus many extra duties like: removing the waste from all bins and baskets in the building or office space, loading sanitary materials into dispensers in the public restrooms, doing heavy-duty work as wall washing and carpet cleaning, checking if everything in the building is in orderly condition, etc. In some regions, janitors are also considered porters.
