HOW IT WORKS: DEMO BY CERTIFIED PARTNER SANISTAFF OF CLEANSCORE ADT REAL-TIME TESTING
Your Cleanscore is a proprietary aggregate of factors including before and after Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) testing and RLU measurements, the latest OSHA recommendations, as well as guidance from the CDC, the EPA/FDA, and others.
ATP monitoring is a rapid testing method used to quickly assess the cleanliness of surfaces. ATP is present in all organic material and is the universal unit of energy used in all living cells. The presence of ATP on a surface indicates improper cleaning and the presence of contamination, including food residue, allergens and bacteria. This implies a potential for the surface to harbor and support bacterial growth.
Using the ATP cleaning verification system, a Cleanscore technician will swab surfaces both before disinfection to identify areas of greatest need, and after the service to confirm and validate disinfection results. ATP readings can provide real time feedback on cleaning performance, vs the 24 to 48 hours required to obtain results via microbiological methods.
Hygiena luminometers (in conjunction with ATP swabs) use bioluminescence to detect residual ATP as an indicator of surface cleanliness. Relative Light Units (RLUs) are used for most luminescence measurements and indicate how soiled a surface is. The ideal rating for all surfaces is below 30 RLUs and all surfaces used for food prep and service should measure below 10 RLUs.
