Cleaning is not a very attractive job but Sweden tried to make it attractive by legislating some years ago that clearers should be well paid and have great pleasure doing what they do.

But things have changed especially since 2004 when the Eastern European started flooding the sector in Sweden.


The Swedish Work Environment Authority has made supervisory visits to over 500 cleaning companies and most of them provide some of the worst working environment ever seen in the sector.
According to report from the Work Environment Authority, close to 1400 companies have been called to effect improvements in their work environment after a visit to the Stockholm’s business area.

The administration's oversight has been made in Stockholm, Uppsala and the Island of Gotland. Many companies lack, according to the Work Environment Authority, a basic knowledge of how to prevent risks.
