Isn’t it a complete treat coming back home to a clean environment? Or going in to work and finding that your office is dusted and everything is in its place? Well, you have your office or home cleaner to thank for that! And what better way to thank him / her than by writing a rocking reference letter for them!
Reference letters written for cleaner positions need to be “all about praise”. You would want the person who has looked after your cleaning needs for so long, to be able to find a good job if he is thinking of switching and the best way to go about it is to write a glowing reference letter for him / her. When you write a reference letter, you do not necessarily need to get into the details of each job that the person did however, you must identify the skills that helped him / her do it. Since you want the person to be considered a perfect fit for a new job, you need to highlight all that he / she is capable of. You can also mention an incident through which the cleaner proved his worth to augment the information you provide in the reference letter.
Once you have figured out what you need to write, you can refer to the following sample of reference letter for cleaner position:

To Whom It May Concern
I am writing this letter to recommend Jemima Hans who has worked as a house cleaner for me since I moved to Billings, MT in 2006. The past nine years, I have come home to a clean environment, a feat that I could not possibly have done due to working long hours at Macy’s.
Jemima is a complete pleasure to have – she knows her work inside out and has never given me cause for complaint. Her punctuality is her greatest virtue in my opinion – I have to hand over the house to her before I leave for work at 7 am and she has never been late. She is efficient when it comes to her work. She knows what type of surface requires which kind of cleaning materials and is thorough in all cleaning activities that she performs.
Since Jemima has worked as a full time cleaner for me, she has taken on added responsibilities including dish washing and laundry as well. She is energetic and responsible and despite the fact that she has to carry out mundane tasks every day, she is never short of a smile.
Unfortunately, I will be moving to Columbus at the end of next month and Jemima will not be able to continue working for me. I truly believe that she is capable of becoming a significant addition to any household owing to her reliability and conscientiousness. I can be reached at (555) 555-5555 if you need any more information.
