  • Start the audit with a walk around the property.
    Observe what the surrounding conditions and what
    they present to the occupants of the building.
    Remember that the goal of the audit is to
    discover the condition of not only the building
    but the condition of the buildings surrounding,
    including the air (ambient air).

18
  • Here is depiction of an area adjacent to the
    building and near the dumpster area where carts
    are improperly stored and there is enough debris
    to house pests. The sidewalk is in good shape but
    landscaping uses are varied and more attention to
    cleaning the landscape area is necessary.

19
  • Entryway matting systems are very important as
    they will trap up to 80 of the dirt and
    contaminants entering the building. Check to see
    if the matting system has the usual three types
    of mats scraper outside, wiper/scraper in
    between the doors and wiper mat inside the
    building. Suggest good quality mats as that will
    drive down the cost to maintain floors inside the
    building. Unseen dirt particulates scrape away at
    the floor finish and degrade the hardest of
    finishes.

20
  • Check all entrances and ensure that glass is
    clean, not cracked or broken and doors are sealed
    and working properly.

21
  • Look to see if waste containers have been
    emptied and that end user is using properly sized
    trash can liners (suggest color coding).
    Cafeteria and kitchen containers should have lids.

22
  • Garbage chutes are usually located inside hall
    closets and are frequently overlooked but they
    require frequent cleaning and contribute to poor
    indoor air quality. Enzyme base cleaners are
    effective along with degreasers.

23
  • Be sure to check all hallway floors as they can
    be of different materials in different parts of
    the building and the audit should reflect what
    part of the building has what type of flooring.
    Include the floor program for each type of
    flooring VCT, marble, carpet, terrazzo, etc.

24
  • An audit should always include an inspection of
    the boiler area for water treatment chemicals and
    cooling tower chemicals. These are hazardous
    chemicals and need to be handled with extreme
    care. MSDS sheets should be readily available and
    chemicals should be blocked and diked. Check for
    shelf life on these chemicals as the old vendor
    typically leaves behind his old chemicals if his
    company is replaced and does not haul them away.
    Special disposal costs are involved.

25
  • Inspect floor drains that they are working
    properly and liquid is moving thru them at least
    once weekly to reduce odors. Also check floor
    sinks as these usually collect mop strands and
    become blocked.

26
  • Audits should always include moving away boxes
    and other stored items to reveal evidence of
    insects or rodents. These areas are hiding and
    nesting areas and all items should be removed and
    store properly. Suggest an Integrated Pest
    Management program.

27
  • Educate building and cleaning staff where insect
    and rodent problems exist and develop a plan to
    monitor activity and prevent pests from entering
    the building.

28
  • Inspect areas around loading docks and garages
    to reveal evidence of rodents, insect, birds.
    Ensure that dumpsters are not located under
    outside air intakes.

29
  • Storage areas should be neat and tidy. Items
    stored should be listed in MSDS binders and kept
    up to date. Paints should be store separately
    from cleaning chemicals.

30
  • Check condition of janitorial equipment. Check
    for working order, filters clean and changed in a
    timely manner. Check for log of preventive
    maintenance program. Inquire if all staff on
    cross trained on equipment.

31
  • Inventory of all stock should be recorded along
    with purchasing date. Managed inventory is a plus
    for customers. Suggest combining purchase orders
    to reduce overordering, duplicate ordering and
    reduction of cost of ordering. Develop velocity
    report based on historical ordering methods.

32
  • Audits will reveal fire hazards which can be
    resolved by proper storage procedures.

33
  • All stairways should be kept free and clear of
    debris. All stairs and landings should be clean
    and dry. Posted wet floor signs should be used
    when cleaning stairways. Storage underneath
    staircases are typical fire hazards and should be
    addressed.

34
  • It is important to observe what density level is
    present in the office areas. Clutter will present
    problems like undusted/cleaned surfaces which can
    trigger respiratory issues. Improperly store
    materials invite pests, insects. Unattended
    plants affect indoor air quality. Inquire about
    carpet maintenance programs and frequency of
    vacuuming, shampooing, etc.

35
  • Check all ceiling tiles for water damage.
    Stained tiles indicate that a leak exists or has
    existed and effects are mold and/or moisture
    concerns. Suggest replacement of tiles.

36
  • Give particular attention to food and food prep
    areas where a high risk of rodents,pests and
    insects will occur. Suggest an IPM program.
    Also, oftentimes kitchen personnel bring in their
    own cleaning supplies which may not be in
    accordance with the objectives of a green
    cleaning program.

37
  • Restroom areas should involve an audit of the
    type of soap, towel and tissue being used. Follow
    Green Seal standards for compliance
    www.greenseal.org . Suggest a total green
    cleaning program from current product line.

38
  • Pictures of janitorial closets normally will
    reveal the level of commitment the building and
    staff have toward a viable, cleaning for health
    pathway.

39
  • Roofs
  • Building Audits are meant to cover the whole
    building and as such you should begin with the
    roof. You are looking for a high albedo which
    means that the sunlight is reflected a lot when
    it strikes the surface of the roof. The benefit
    is that the cooling load is reduced because you
    addressed the problem of Heat Island as mentioned
    in the LEED rating system. Cooling loads can be
    reduced as much as 30 or more. The albedo rate
    is measured thru the Solar Reflectance Index
    which goes from 0- 100. A minimum of 29 on the
    SRI scale is necessary to qualify the roof under
    LEED rating.

40
  • Inspect roof areas for standing water, storage
    of tools and high SRI values which reflect
    sunlight and reduce cooling loads

41
  • Check vents and drains to ensure that they are
    working and in good repair. Check that vents are
    free and clear of debris. Look for stack
    ventilation to be free and clear to allow for
    proper airflow in or out of building.
