Tests show effects of aqueous ozone in cleaning


Omaha, NE — Recently released ATP test results using an aqueous ozone cleaning system to clean five different surfaces show the powerful effectiveness of this cleaning technology, according to a press release.

The tests were conducted using aqueous ozone cleaning machines manufactured by CleanCore Technology.

Matt Montag, national director of sales for CleanCore, says these particular surfaces were selected because they are often considered disease transmission points. Scientists, adds Montag, have known about the cleaning and sanitizing benefits of aqueous ozone for more than a century.

“It has long been considered a very efficient ‘broad spectrum’ antimicrobial cleaning agent…used to kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other pathogens.” Montag explained. “However, what is ‘news’ [about this technology] is that these systems are now more cost effective and easier to use, making them a new and effective cleaning arsenal for the professional cleaning industry.”

The tests revealed the following:

  • Toilet Seat, before cleaning using aqueous ozone had an ATP rating of 1,645; after cleaning 1
  • Over-the-bed tray, before 50; after 0
  • Door handle, before 212; after 2
  • Computer keyboard, before 40; after 3
  • Wheelchair handle, before 39; after 0

“When ATP is present on a surface it does not mean specifically that harmful pathogens are present,” Montag explains.  “It just means that they may be present and should be removed to protect human health.”

These ATP tests seem to validate recent studies conducted by the University of Nebraska.  Those studies found a “statistically significant decrease in E.coli and Listeria,” both forms of bacteria that can negatively impact health, after an area was cleaned using a CleanCore aqueous ozone cleaning system, according to Montag.

“What all these tests indicate is that the professional cleaning industry now has new ways to keep surfaces clean and people healthy, which is the ultimate goal of professional cleaning.”
