Cleaning Job Titles
What job titles do other companies use for their cleaning employees? "Cleaner" certainly doesn't invoke a sense of worth or value in an employee, what are some better options that you have experimented with?

"Sanitization Technician"? "Soiling Removal Specialist"? "Facility Health Agent"? "Building Improvement Expert"?

These are mainly from a commercial cleaning perspective, but I'd like to hear from residential/carpet cleaning service providers as well. Very curious to see your ideas. :yes:

I call them about everything.... worker... cleaner... employee and sometimes a few words I shouldn't use on here :censored:

My thing is that I treat everyone just as though they are equal to me. Yeah, I tell you what to do, when to do it and how it needs to be done.... but that's only because I have to. I don't mind when someone that works for me tells me that I did something wrong. I love that... it shows me that they care.

Back in the day I had the 2 girls that hated me, but I treated them just as nice as I did everyone else. And when it came time to give 'vacation' time off (we didn't offer vacation, we just tried to do it when we could) I gave them just as much time off as everyone one else. They even told me they didn't think they would get time off because I didn't like them. I said, "I like you... as a matter of fact, I love you. You make me money every day". They didn't really know how I meant it, and neither did I :laughing: but things seemed just a little better for awhile. Or maybe I was just imagining things were better...... :huh:

So call them what you want as long as you treat the right.

How about "Dirtbuster" ? :)

I know what you mean, cleaner doesn't exactly make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, but where would you use the term that makes you concerned about what to call it? The only time I have had to think about what to call employees was when I was setting up payroll categories - and there they are called cleaners. Other than that they are 'the girls' or 'my employees'. When having conversation with customers I usually use the employees names ex: 'Jen will be the lead of the team that comes to clean your home'

I used to always wonder why people had such a hard time getting customers and running their business..... after reading a lot of the answers on here the last few years.... I now see why.....
