Upkeep and maintenance

Upkeep and maintenance

Maintaining residence equipment, facilities and surroundings is indispensable to ensure a welcoming, comfortable and safe environment for those who live there. These tasks also represent significant items in our clients’ operating budgets.

Well-kept premises

Throughout the world, Sodexo adopts a comprehensive maintenance approach to prolong the lifespan of facilities, buildings and equipment and help administrators control costs. The key lies in regular maintenance, which makes it possible to anticipate problems before they arise. We owe our operational excellence in this field to the performance of our teams: Sodexo employees are all dedicated and trained to work in a health care environment.

Controlling energy consumption

Saving energy is a core commitment for Sodexo. We design tailor-made solutions to reduce energy consumption in retirement homes without disturbing – and in some cases by enhancing - facility efficiency and staff, resident and patient comfort.

In the United States, Sodexo has proved to be a strategic partner of Asbury Communities by helping to optimize operating costs at its eldercare facilities. In addition to delivering quality foodservices, cleaning and groundskeeping, we have enabled our client to reduce their total energy bill by 15.
