Bacteria & Germ Testing Overview
On an average day, if a person sees something that looks clean, they assume it is clean. However, we know that a visual inspection is only the beginning. Our technicians at BioteamAZ perform ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) tests at the beginning and end of our cleanup service. The ATP test allows us to measure the presence of actively growing microorganisms (bacteria). This helps us assess the impact of viable bacteria and organic debris to the property. ATP tests have been used to evaluate the cleanliness of food preparation surfaces at restaurants for more than thirty years. They are now used by hospitals, restaurants, labs, airlines, and government agencies to measure bacteria and germs.
Professional Bacteria & Germ Testing
Although the national standard for Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning set forth by IICRC does not require ATP Testing as part of the protocol, we perform rapid testing to verify infection control. We shoot to reach the nationwide standard for department of health inspection at restaurants.
