Qualifications for getting a job as an office cleaner include the ability to perform various cleaning tasks and knowing how to use cleaning products safely. Other qualifications include flexibility to deal with changing job requirements, the ability to finish tasks within a limited time period and good customer service skills.

Employers look for people with a positive attitude and professional demeanor, who take pride in their work. Experience with vacuuming, sweeping and bathroom maintenance and the ability to operate janitorial equipment are requirements for some jobs, while other employers may provide training in these skills. Formal education is not usually a requirement.
