Hire a Custodian

 

Custodial work is crucial in the maintenance and functionality of schools, hospitals, businesses, and other institutions. Custodians are individuals who maintain a facility, keeping it clean and organized at all times. They work in various institutions on a full-time or part-time basis. Custodians generally work daytime hours. However, some facilities may require custodians to work evenings and on weekends as necessary. 

 

A job description allows hiring managers to attract a qualified pool of candidates. A detailed and complete job description encourages applicants to apply for a custodian position. It is best for hiring managers to highlight the importance of the position and say something about the company’s values and work environment. Include any benefits that custodians will enjoy at the company. Doing so can set your job description apart from other listings. 

 

Responsibilities of a Custodian

 

The goal of a custodian is to maintain the cleanliness of a work environment at all times. They ensure that the trash is taken out at regular intervals and replace the linings. Cleaning, mopping, vacuuming floors, carpets, and other surfaces are common tasks of custodians. They dust, polish, and return furniture to its place. Custodians wash sinks, scrub toilets, and sanitize bathroom and kitchen fixtures. They wipe and clean windows and mirrors as well. 

 

Custodians decide on the cleaning agents, chemicals, and solutions to use for each surface. They ensure that the property will not be damaged during the cleaning process. Custodians also use different cleaning tools and equipment as necessary. Depending on the need, custodians perform basic maintenance repairs like fixing door handles or minor leaks. If the repairs need further work, custodians are responsible for reporting to the manager or building supervisor.

 

At times, custodians maintain a facility’s grounds and outer premises. They mow lawns, water plants, sweep driveways, or shovel snow as needed. Lastly, custodians work according to safety standards. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Custodian

 

To qualify as a custodian, a high school diploma or GED may be required. On-the-job training is commonly provided by the hiring organization. However, previous work experience in the same role is an advantage for the position. The ideal candidate can work independently with minimal supervision, has good time management skills, and has excellent problem-solving and communication skills. 

 

Working knowledge of cleaning tools, equipment, and materials are necessary. Additionally, the ability to conduct basic maintenance work and repairs is helpful. Lastly, candidates must have the physical stamina to stand for extended periods, have manual dexterity, and lift heavy objects if needed. Candidates for the positions may be required to work in the evenings and on weekends.
