To see this website’s blog entries on varied janitorial topics on this website, click on the BLOG link at the side of this page. It’s contains all the posts…scroll like mad! 🙂 To check individual topics see lower down on the side bar where they are listed as chapters. Enjoy!

This site is a resource place for those in the custodial, janitorial, cleaning and facility maintenance line of work, whether you work as a cleaning support staff in a school or run your own cleaning business…

Some suggestions for issues to “chew on”: Do you call yourself Janitor, Custodian, Maid, Public Building Domestic Maintenance Engineer, Residential Cleaner? What do you like about your job? What cleaning chemicals and equipment do you like to use? Do you feel that your cleaning chemicals are safe, or do body parts fall off? Are shift hours steady? Are you treated with respect and are your ideas honestly considered? Have problems with vandalism? Got any good advice on cleaning, repairing and preventing vandalism and littering? How about recycling, hazardous materials, safety and injury issues? Job hunting? Needing advice on applying for these types of jobs? Need advice or have information to share? Besides the information found on this site we also set up a Facebook Group page here. Lots of wonderful folk there all sharing, and caring.


What do you know about Green Cleaning? Do you like team cleaning? Use micro fiber? Do you do hazardous cleanups? Do you set up bleachers? Have back issues with lunch table set ups? When more tasks are added to your shift are you given more time to complete these tasks or not? Were your hours cut but workload remained the same? Have you any humorous on the job stories? Wish to share sage advice on getting along with co-workers, staff, students? Have any great safety tips? Do you have a “best” way to do a job or handy hints? Are your co-workers just out and out strange? Let it all out on our group Facebook page… share your pain!
