Author Information

There are two primary classification codes used for janitorial businesses in the state of Florida:

9014 – This classification code is assigned to businesses primarily engaged in providing janitorial services for others that does not include window cleaning above ground level. Janitorial services are defined as keeping a building clean by routine dusting, mopping, vacuuming, waxing, or polishing of floors, emptying of trash, cleaning or washing of interior walls, and cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing of restrooms, and/or keeping a building clean and engaging in various types of maintenance or minor repair work for upkeep of a building. These maintenance or minor repair operations may include, but are not limited to, painting, cleaning windows, changing light bulbs, assisting occupants in the placement of furniture, replacing glass panes, clearing drains, and cleaning carpets. This classification code also includes the drivers of the business. The 2011 rate for the 9014 class code is $4.41 per $100 units of remuneration.

9170 – This classification code is assigned to businesses primarily engaged in providing janitorial services for others including window cleaning above ground level. Janitorial services are defined as keeping a building clean by routine dusting, vacuuming rugs, and emptying ashtrays, and/or keeping a building clean and engaging in various types of maintenance or minor repair work for upkeep of a building. Stated differently, a risk qualifies as a janitorial service if the risk engages exclusively in cleaning a building or performs maintenance or minor repair operations in addition to cleaning a building. This code also includes the drivers in the business. It also includes chimney cleaners and pressure washing businesses that conduct work above ground level. The 2011 rate for the 9170 class code is also $4.41 per $100 units of remuneration.
