There may be a difference in the job description for a cleaning team member at the company where you submit your application for employment.  However, the above outline is representative of the duties and obligations required by most house cleaning business employers.

Many companies work with teams of two or three people, in which case there are additional responsibilities for an individual who often holds the position of "team leader" or a similar designation.  Naturally, in the case  of employers who send out one person to clean a client's home, there is no team leader position.  In these instances the individual cleaner often reports to a field supervisor.
