CLEANING STANDARD LVS 1051
About LVS 1051
The standard LVS 1051 allows unambiguous determination of the required quality level of cleaning. The LVS 1051 model is identical to the standard and assessment model INSTA 800, commonly used in the Republic of Latvia. The LVS 1051 model is based on the basic principles of standard EN 13549, which is based on the QLT-100 assessment model.
The LVS 1051 model includes a complete quality control system for cleaning services. The main principles of the visual inspection of model LVS 1051 are:
Six different levels of cleaning quality: 0 is the lowest, and the 5th is the highest.
Rooms are divided into 4 groups of elements:
8 quality profiles:
- types of dirtiness or pollution are divided into 4 groups;
- pollution and dirtiness are inspected in accessible and complex places;
- inspection is carried out immediately after the cleaning of the premises;
- uses an acceptable quality limit (AQL) of 4%, however, different quality limits can be applied, too.
The cleaning of rooms or premises is accepted if the amount of accumulation of pollution in each group of objects is less than or equal to the permitted number of the appropriate quality level.
The standard LVS 1051 does not have the ability to assess the quality level of landscaping. The LVS 1051 system does not include measurement and control of the quality level of the cleaning related services, such as consumables and their replenishment, emptying of rubbish bins, waste management and other tasks related to cleaning.
As with the INSTA 800 or QLT-100, this evaluation model is focused on measuring the results of cleaning and the evaluation of the quality level.
The LVS 1051 system provides greater confidence and motivation for the cleaner, cleaning services company and customer. The standard focuses on the definition of the quality level and its continuous determination. In addition to external audits, the service provider and the customer must evaluate the daily quality of cleaning services at a specified frequency, as a minimum to the level determined in the assessment model LVS 1051.
Application, introduction, training and certification of the standard LVS 1051.
