Monday, June 10, 2019

Working in hotel maintenance, you are responsible for keeping the hotel maintained and fixing any errors that are needed. This can include putting in new carpets in guest rooms, repairing holes in walls, changing settings on cooling and heating equipment, putting new light bulbs in the hotel's outdoor lamps and performing general cleaning tasks inside and outside the hotel's building.

Other hotel maintenance duties and responsibilities include repainting walls, fixing broken furniture, fixing minor electrical issues and making faucets stop leaking. You can expect physically demanding work that includes using tools and equipment and moving around much of the day, including having to climb ladders, lift heavy items and crawl in tight spaces when necessary.

Education Requirements A high school education with classes in repair and maintenance can prepare you to be a hotel maintenance professional. These courses should give you a well-rounded background in topics like plumbing, electricity, air conditioning and heating systems, wall repair, carpentry and cleaning. The hotel that employs you may also provide job shadowing and training to teach you common maintenance tasks. Depending on what type of hotel maintenance tasks you do, tour state may require you to pursue additional certification or license.
