What is a floor tech?


According to the Goodman Group, floor technicians maintain a clean and safe environment in a facility by performing tasks from mopping floors to stocking supplies. In facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes, a floor tech complies with all federal, state and local regulations, especially with regard to sanitation or environmentally dangerous substances. A floor tech is required to make independent decisions and to follow instructions.

In the business environment, most floor techs work nights. However, in facilities that are open 24 hours, a floor tech is expected to communicate effectively and tactfully with personnel, residents and their families, visitors, and the general public. Floor techs are expected to manage equipment and tools in work areas and ensure that its placement effectively eliminates safety hazards, such as tripping.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, or BLS, some floor techs work part of their workday outside sweeping walkways, clearing snow and maintaining the grounds. The work is physically demanding and occasionally messy and disagreeable. Formal education is not a requirement, and most floor tech skills are learned through on-the-job training. The 2012 median hourly salary is reported as $10.73 per hour or approximately $22,300 a year. The BLS projects a 12 percent growth in the field between 2012 and 2022, which is about average when compared to other occupations.
