Cleaning Duties

Hotel housemen help members of the hotel’s housekeeping staff clean and maintain rooms. They may flip mattresses, separate soiled linens, stock housekeeping supplies and help clean bathrooms and other guest areas. Housemen also clean lobby furniture, elevator doors and frames and empty ashtrays, in areas where the hotel allows smoking. Hotel housemen may also handle a hotel’s lost and found.


Hotel housemen maintenance duties begin when something breaks or needs a good cleaning. From painting walls and deep-cleaning carpets in the hotel or in any of its rooms, hotel housemen must become jacks of all trades. Their duties can also include replacing HVAC filters and cleaning HVAC on a scheduled basis.

Customer Service

Sometimes, housemen respond to guest requests, such as when a light isn't working in a room or when the hallway ice machine isn't working. Because housemen will interact with guests, most hotels require their housemen to know company policies. Hotel housemen should know how to resolve basic and standard problems, respond to requests and help make sure that guests enjoy their stays.


Since most hotels never close, hotel housemen must be flexible in the hours they can work, sometimes working long hours when necessary. Hotel housemen must also be able to lift and carry up to 50 pounds. Appearance counts in a hotel and some hotels require housemen to wear a uniform and follow company appearance standards.
