Class code 9014 is used for employees that work for a janitorial service and who perform work related to cleaning. This would include routine tasks, such as window cleaning done from a ground level (both inside and outside), dusting, vacuuming, mopping, waxing or polishing floors, washing interior walls, emptying the trash, cleaning and sanitizing restrooms, and incidental minor repairs that may be required by the customer as well. Examples of repair work that is often performed by a janitorial service and that is allowed under this classification includes painting, changing light bulbs, replacing glass panes, cleaning carpets, clearing drains, and furniture placement assistance.

In addition, this class code would also be used for individuals who work for a residential swimming pool maintenance company, termite control employees (who use no poisonous gases), those employed by mobile pressure washing or power washing companies, as well as specialty contractors who perform residential boiler cleaning work or chimney cleaning (ground level only) using vacuum suction equipment.

Exclusions to class code 9014 would be anyone who works primarily as a maintenance employee, any professional contractor (such as a painter, plumber, electrician, carpenter, handyman, etc.) that should be otherwise classified, those employees who use heavy machinery or equipment, and anyone working above ground in any capacity.
