  6. Safety and Security: You may be responsible for ensuring that the premises are secure after hours, including locking doors and windows. You may also report any safety hazards or security concerns they encounter during their shift.
  7. Specialized Cleaning: Depending on the setting, you may need to perform specialized cleaning tasks. For example, in a healthcare facility, you might need to follow specific protocols for disinfecting surfaces to prevent the spread of infections.
  8. Teamwork and Communication: You may often work as part of a team, coordinating with colleagues and supervisors to ensure that all cleaning tasks are completed efficiently and according to schedule. Good communication skills are important for this aspect of the job.
  9. Flexibility: You may need to adapt to changing priorities or unexpected situations, such as spills or accidents, during your shift.

Overall, the role of a cleaning technician/janitor is essential for maintaining a clean, safe, and comfortable environment for the occupants of the buildings we serve.
