Let’s look at actual ATP data from a hospital. This hospital is a small, well-regulated hospital with 6 people on the cleaning staff, meaning there is presumably better control over cleaning and a smaller level of cleaning variability compared to larger hospitals. These ATP levels are collected over a one-month period and are measured before the hospital’s daily clean and after the hospital’s daily clean to understand how the surfaces behave between cleanings. After each daily clean at the hospital, average ATP levels are in the acceptable zone which you can see represented by the green circles. Above those green circles, you’ll see a dotted line which is the positive standard deviation. These lines are small and still within the acceptable zone, which indicates a low level of variability in the data. If we add the ATP data from surfaces before they are cleaned for the day, we notice two things: 1) most of the ATP average levels are in the unacceptable zone which are represented by the red and green “X”s and 2) there is a lot of variability in these levels which you can see by referencing the large red/green dotted lines above the “X”s.
Cleaning inconsistencies along with microbial growth on surfaces can lead to unacceptable surface conditions.
Now we are going to take that same small hospital with six people on the cleaning staff and use XYLEX® Protect at the beginning of the month. On day 1, the surfaces are cleaned per usual hospital protocols and then XYLEX® Protect is applied once and allowed to dry. XYLEX® Protect is only applied that one time during the month but it creates that molecular barrier to make the surface smoother and makes it difficult for organic residue to adhere to the surface. The remainder of the month, standard cleaning protocols are used just like in the previous graph. ATP levels are still measured before the hospital’s daily clean and after the hospital’s daily clean. After each daily clean at the hospital, average ATP levels are once again in the acceptable zone which you can see represented by the blue circles this time. The dotted lines above the circles still display the positive standard deviation, showing low levels of variability in the data. Now, we’ll add the ATP data from surfaces before they are cleaned for the day, and we’ll again notice two things. 1) Most of the ATP average levels are in the acceptable zone this time which are represented by the blue “X”s. There are exceptions on day 1, before XYLEX®is applied to the surface, and on day 29, which is when we recommend reapplying XYLEX® Protect, at the end of the month. 2) You’ll also notice that the standard deviations (the dotted lines) are really small! This shows that there is very little variability even weeks after application.
Using XYLEX® Protect, these surfaces have stayed clean, preventing those ATP surges, despite any cleaning inconsistencies that exist.
