Step 2: Select Your Quality
By setting your overall quality level, you establish a baseline quality for your cleaning program. PDM uses both
standard cleaning levels and a more detailed defect driven quality scale.
You will notice an estimated quality percentage next to each APPA level. Please pick from the APPA level standards below; you can also change this setting later.
← Lower Quality
Overall Quality Level: APPA Level
→ Higher Quality
Casual Inattention (~65% Quality)
Floors are swept or vacuumed clean, but upon close observation, there can be stains. A buildup of dirt and/or floor finish in corners and along walls can be seen. There are dull spots and/or matted carpet in walking lanes. There are streaks or splashes on base molding. All vertical and horizontal surfaces have obvious dust, dirt, marks, smudges, and fingerprints. Lamps all work and fixtures are clean. Trash containers and pencil sharpeners hold only daily waste and are clean and odor free.
