Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to undertake regular or periodic cleaning of walls, ceiling surfaces and their fittings from ground level. It includes assessing the walls, ceilings and fittings to identify the type of soil present, and then selecting cleaning methods, equipment and cleaning agents. Walls, ceiling and fitting surfaces are cleaned using standard and extension equipment to ensure they are free from soil, cobwebs and dust.

Ceiling surfaces can be flat, suspended or raked, and made of hard or absorbent materials. Fittings include audiovisual equipment, cameras, ceiling fans, ceiling roses, cornices, lighting tracks, pendant lighting, recessed lights, skylights, sprinkler systems, vents and grilles.

This unit applies to cleaning industry personnel who work alone or in teams in commercial and domestic sites. They use a range of cognitive, technical and communication skills to select and apply a range of methods, tools, materials and information to complete routine cleaning activities and provide solutions to predictable and sometimes unpredictable problems.

All work must be carried out in accordance with relevant state/territory legislation and regulations, including work health and safety (WHS), and codes of practice as well as organisational procedures.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
