We would like to thank the management and staff of this Apple Store for their time and cooperation and assistance given during this inspection allowing us to compile this report.


    This report was undertaken in accordance with our internal work instructions. Our purpose has been to review the cleaning standards in store, to view compliance documentation and where appropriate to provide advice and guidance to assist in identifying non-compliance and delivering improvements

    This report has been carried out primarily by means of:

    * Announced visit to the Apple Store, giving 24hrs notice to the Store Manager
    * Informal meeting with the Store Manager / Duty Manager
    * Inspection of cleaning standards being delivered against the cleaning specification
    * Inspection of the on-site procedures, documentation and recording
    * Inspection of the cleaning equipment, chemicals and consumables

    This report concentrates on the 'Contracted' cleaning standards in the store and includes all of the sales floor area, back of house and external areas where appropriate.

    Helistrat uses expertise and innovation to develop 'service solutions' to deliver long term objectives on behalf of Apple. This will add long term value to the business and the relationship, by acting as a subject expert and strategic service partner of choice, working in collaboration with passion and trust with your best interest in mind.
