No industry or area of the economy has been spared impact during this unprecedented outbreak of the novel coronavirus. Buildings with a high circulation of people and common use areas are especially susceptible to contamination and disease spread. Hospitals, schools and universities, hotels, commercial real estate, manufacturing centers and transit systems are being challenged as never before to implement rigorous cleaning procedures, reduce the operational and financial impacts of closures and work stoppages and protect the health and safety of employees, customers and communities.

Hygiene Monitoring and ATP Testing
Hygiene control is critical during the coronavirus outbreak. Even though a surface may look clean,
microorganisms and other biological residues that are not visible to the human eye may be present. Measuring for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – which is found in living cells – has long been used in the medical and food industries to evaluate the effectiveness of cleaning activities and help prevent the spread of viral contamination. TRC can instantly assess the cleanliness of various surfaces and indicate where immediate corrective action is needed. Our process minimizes the use of slower, labor intensive and expensive conventional testing methods. ATP testing can improve sanitation training, help optimize cleaning chemicals and equipment to maintain sanitation without waste and increase quality of work with less time spent on reactive cleaning. We perform cleaning and disinfection protocol peer review, contractor oversight and post-cleaning verification using both visual and ATP testing methods.

Cleaning Oversight and Management
In house cleaning crews are doing their best in these difficult times. But in the case of highly contagious pathogens, standard cleaning protocols are not enough. The best way to make sure surfaces are appropriately cleaned and safe for occupants is to utilize third party review and oversight to confirm the cleaning is effective and to implement cleaning procedures specifically tailored to adhere to CDC guidelines. Our team provides cleaning crew oversight, cleaning verification and develops and documents cleaning protocols in accordance with relevant guidelines and regulations.
