Sanitary maintenance quality controls, or audits, are an essential component to include in your contract management or employee management. In fact, it is the only way to objectively assess whether the service rendered is in accordance with the estimate or the given job description. Since the quality of sanitary maintenance is an unstable result that can vary greatly over time, it is important to continually monitor it. Visual inspections should be done on a regular basis throughout the year. Anyone can walk through a building and give an impression of the cleanliness of the premises according to their own standards. But a proper audit, a thorough evaluation of the premises' cleanliness, according to established and measurable criteria, must be performed by a certified and experienced auditor, which relies on a matrix or a properly structured software to achieve a quantitative rather than a subjective evaluation.

To carry out our quality controls, we use a state-of-the-art software system on a handheld device. This allows for more data to be collected and recorded by the hour. From this data, we can generate conclusive statistics per building because the information we dispose of is highly relevant and accurate. This turns a subjective notion into an objective and measurable one.

An expert auditor, accredited by the Mouvement Québécois de la Qualité, will be assigned to your project. He will then collect the information on site, compile and translate it into a report to be submitted with our findings about your building. With the results in hand, you will be able to know exactly what the state of cleanliness of your building is, so that you can make the necessary corrections.

In short, the sanitary maintenance audit is a snapshot of the actual quality and services provided. It is an excellent starting point for managing continuous improvement in sanitation. It provides valuable evidence to negotiate a contract, improve work routes, plan training sessions, purchase new tools, or simply to prove to your board of directors that everything is under control and that the money invested is turning out to be valuable for everyone!
