School Flu Decontamination Case Study
After a flu outbreak that affected many students and teachers at a school, New Life Restorations was contacted to help decontaminate specific buildings of flu contagions.
Floors including vinyl and carpet
Fixtures and contents
4 teaching blocks
2 toilet blocks
Furniture - chairs and desks
24 A/C units
As part of the delivery of high quality cleaning service to the school in this scenario, New Life Restorations had implmented the use of ATP bioluminescence testing to monitor standards of cleaning. In accordance with Guidelines for Cleaning Methodologies, Applications and Equipment 2014, key cleaning principles were followed including - but not limited to - adequately trained cleaning staff, wearing suitable ppe, use of laundered, hygienic cleaning equipment such as re-usable microfibre cloths and mops, HEPA filter vacuum cleaningers and appropirate TGA approved detergent/disinfectant cleaning solution in required concentrations.
In order to scientifically measure cleanliness of surfaces ATP testing was conducted before and after the cleaning process. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is present in all living cells and can be used as an indicator of biological contamination on surfaces.
