Workplace Hygiene Testing

North Property Advisors can provide Real Time ATP Swab Testing to measure hygiene levels in Corporate Settings. 

We’ve developed a unique technology to help you comply with stricter cleaning and safety policies. Now that the UK is resuming work and travel, it’s vital that organisations avoid liability for failing to act responsibly. Monitoring cleanliness can only be achieved through regular and consistent auditing.

What is APT testing?

Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is found in all organic matter – dead or alive. The ATP test is  a process of rapidly measuring microorganisims through detection of ATP on a surface.

ATP testing is the only method that combines quantitative data collection with scientific measurement, in real time. Our monitoring technology provides an accurate, consistent and reliable audit system. The tests can be carried out on specific touch-points and other areas throughout the premises.

Every audit is undertaken by one of our trained professionals, using 15-50 swabs depending on the size of the premises. Each swab and digital analysis takes under 1 minute.

The Process

Our auditors can arrive unannounced to test random areas within a workplace setting. Testing will then commence and typically takes up to 60 minutes depending on the size of the premises.

Using our cutting edge technology, digital results from each swab are available in less than 60 seconds. North Property Advisors can then alert your team to test fail points. All results will be uploaded to your online dashboard within 12 hours for comprehensive analysis and comparison.
