LEED Certification is an increasingly important reputational tool that tells your tenants and potential tenants you care about sustainability. More importantly, it actively indicates you are doing something about it. DCS Global completes custodial effectiveness APPA audits for LEED certification, professionally, quickly, seamlessly, and cost-effectively, with full LEED points awarded. At DCS Global our third-party APPA/LEED audit process exceeds LEED requirements, inspecting 5 percent more space than required, while remaining highly cost-effective.
Assessments are completed based on the APPA 1-5 measurement standards: Level 1 orderly spotlessness, Level 2 ordinary tidiness, Level 3 casual inattention, Level 4 moderate dinginess, Level 5 unkept neglect. Once the inspection is complete, we prepare and present a report that captures: the methodology used to conduct the audit, an audit areas breakdown per APPA space category definitions, the score allocated to each space, and specific opportunities to improve cleaning practices. This report also includes a building-specific project description, a detailed area summary, specific inspection data, and recommendations.
