“I have worked with Bare Metal Standard for approximately 15 years in multiple healthcare facilities. They have the Bare Metal Standard®, and they stand to their name. They help our processes in many more ways than just cleaning hoods as they ensure that we are completely code compliant . The team at Bare Metal Standard was able to rectify any problems we had in one visit and have stayed to that standard since that time.”
– Glen Roderick, Hospital Engineering Manager
