ATP testing is a service that Relkogroup provide to those who have been affected by flooding or serious water damage. This is a vital service because even when the flood waters recede, they continue to cause damage in the form of microbial contamination which occurs on the dampened surfaces.
Traditional laboratory based methods of testing can prove costly, with fees running into the hundreds. Often, to obtain the most accurate results, these methods can only be carried out several days after the cleaning operation has been completed.
This can lead to significant time delays if additional cleaning is required and the process has to start all over again. These delays are likely to translate into a significant loss of time and money for affected businesses, as well as added expense for homeowners in need of alternative accommodation.
ATP testing is the most common method used for the real-time monitoring of the cleaning process' performance. This technique is popular the world over because of its sensitivity, efficiency and convenience.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is present in all animals, vegetables, bacteria, yeast and mould cells; the detection of ATP indicates contamination by any one of these sources. The tests used by Relkogroup can provide clear results in seconds, avoiding inappropriate delays and identifying the problem in a safe and timely fashion.
