The Highest Paid Cleaning Jobs in History

You won't complain about cleaning your home once you read this!!
Guest post by Paul Smith

Working as a cleaner may seem like a humble pastime but there is a lucrative side to this line of employment that is rarely talked about. Here are some areas of this sector where you literally can – clean up…

Refuse Collector
As a starting point, it’s useful to look at the salary earned by a refuse collector and it may not be as low as many people think. In exchange for collecting your garbage on a weekly basis, operatives can expect to start on wages in the region of £20,000 per annum.
With time and training, this figure could rise to £27,000 and when you consider the weather conditions, the smell and the type of waste that’s being dealt with, maybe that isn’t such a bad reward.

  Portable Toilet Cleaner

This is arguably the worst cleaning role of all as it deals with a combination of the worst possible jobs around. The person employed in this job is playing the part of cleaner and refuse collector as they deal with the worst excesses of human waste.
Some cleaners are employed to deal with up to 60 toilets a day but once again, the remuneration is higher than you might expect and annual salary could increase to around £35,000.
       Sewer Cleaner

Take all the human waste and garbage from a portable toilet and then multiply that by several hundred and you might just have something approaching the scenario that faces a sewer inspector every day.
These people literally dive into the end product in order to check for cracks and blockages in the system. Alongside all the human outpourings are a wide range of nasties from the animal world including spiders, other insects and, of course rats. However, it’s not unknown for sewage workers to stumble across dead bodies as they go about their work.
They have to go through all of this and as their reward, a top sewage inspector can expect to earn around £40,000 per annum before tax.
High Rise Window Cleaner

As a self-employed window cleaner your wages are never likely to be the same from month to month. If you work for a contractor however, you might expect to earn an average of around £17,500 a year for cleaning ‘standard’ properties.
Window Cleaners for high rise buildings are in huge demand however and the risks involved mean that they can command much higher wages. Special certification is also required for working over a certain height and although sources vary in regard to their estimates, it’s generally claimed that anyone cleaning the tallest skyscrapers can expect to earn at least £40,000 a year.
     Crime Scene Cleaner
Imagine having to clean up after a murder and the sights and smells that greet you. Someone has to do it and once all the evidence has been taken away it’s up to the cleaner to get rid of blood, hair and other unspeakable remains.
Needless to say, this is a highly skilled task that also needs professional training but the rewards are there for those that persevere. This is generally accepted as being the highest paid of the cleaning jobs and if you can be flexible with your working hours, salaries of around £60,000 a year are quite common.

    Even celebrity names can be monetized through Amazon as you can include your Amazon affiliate links to their work whether that be a movie
    or television show on DVD, or some of their records.
    My favorite way of testing products is actually testing products.
    So keep in mind that learning Internet marketing can be extremely deep, and don't be surprised if it overwhelms you.
