Fighting bacteria one bathroom at a time
While methods to clean and sanitise bathroom facilities vary, the need to measure the effectiveness of cleaning practices is becoming universal. And ATP testing – adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal unit of energy in all living cells – immediately determines if surfaces truly are clean.
That’s why cleaning supplier Spillz is working with Hygiena products to make ATP testing more cost-effective and affordable for facility managers. Facility managers will soon be able to hire the very latest ATP testing technology – a SystemSURE Plus luminometer with Ultrasnap ATP test swabs to assess just how much bacteria remains on their surfaces.
Developed primarily for medical facilities, Hygiena’s innovative ATP testing system is now proving extremely valuable for facility managers all around the world particularly across the food preparation sector.
“Just because bathrooms look clean doesn’t mean they are clean,” says Scott Rozendaal, Sales Director, Spillz. “In fact, bathrooms are widely recognised as the main transmission point of germs or bio-hazardous zone in any commercial building. Facility managers will be able to use our affordable ATP testing rental service to test their bathrooms, tools, employees or cleaners,” he says.
“With ATP testing, managers can make decisions based on fact. Hygiene and cleanliness are generally measured on a subjective basis. ATP makes it scientific,” he adds.
Spillz new ATP testing rental service will be launched in the new Smart Start Ups Zone at this year’s Total Facilities 2018 in Melbourne, Australia’s largest facilities management exhibition. Scott and his team will be giving several ATP testing demonstrations throughout the event on their stand, H18.
