Germ Detection – Keeping Your Home Safe with Testing and Disinfection

What would it be like if you could have peace of mind and know that your home or business was free of germs, viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens?

What if you could receive an accurate analysis of the cleanliness of your home? And not just how clean your house looks to the human eye, but how clean your home is on a microscopic level? And if you own a business or rental property, what if you could guarantee your customers and renters that your business or rental property was clean and germ-free?

Germ Testing Services

B.D.D.S. offers a specialty testing service that can give you all of this and more. We use a special device made by Hygiena. This is called the Hygiena EnSURE Touch. This device is a miraculous, medical-grade testing tool that allows us to determine if an environment contains potentially harmful germs.

This device uses the incredible power of bacteria swab test technology and is held in the palm of the hand! And we are happy to share this technology with you!

What is a Bacteria Swab Test?

Also called a bacteria culture test, a bacteria test is a specialized method for discovering the existence of specific organisms in a given environment. Historically, bacteria tests referred to medical tests done on the human body to test for germs, microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens that may pose a risk to the patient.

A New Medical Advance

Thanks to advances in science and technology, we can now test an environment outside of the human body! As one can imagine, there are significant benefits to this. With modern bacteria swab tests, we can quite literally determine if a home, restaurant, rental property, school, public building, office space, manufacturing facility, or any type of environment is contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria!

We Service Columbia, Charleston, Savannah, Myrtle Beach, Beaufort, Florence, Hilton Head, Orangeburg, West Columbia, Conway, Lexington, Mount Pleasant, Summerville, and neighboring cities in South Carolina.

This has the Technical Name of ATP Testing

ATP is a special molecule that you don’t want too much of.

The particular test used to examine a surface for the presence of germs and bacteria is a method called “ATP testing.” ATP testing devices examine an area for a molecule called, you guessed it, ATP! ATP is a telltale molecule found in and around many living organisms. ATP is a unique molecule in that it is present in just about every type of microorganism that could be harmful to humans.

Very Low Levels of ATP are not Harmful to your Health.

However, if a surface is contaminated with high ATP levels, that surface could be germ-rich and could spread germs to someone if a person came into close contact with that surface.

How is ATP Testing Used?

An excellent example of ATP testing in use is in restaurants and other food service facilities. Anywhere food is stored, prepared, and served is going to be a place that must adhere to stringent health and cleanliness requirements. However, no environment can ever be 100% contaminant-free. ATP testing is used to take swab samples of surfaces within, say, a restaurant’s kitchen to determine if that surface has contaminants that exceed health protocols.

How Does this Form of Testing Work?

A test for bacterial infection is an effective method for determining if an environment is safe for residents or customers. Hygiena, a company specializing in ATP testing, is the industry leader for designing and manufacturing devices that can test for germs, bacteria, and other potentially harmful organisms.

Hygiena’s EnSURE Touch device can perform both dry surface tests and liquid tests. The surface test includes a user-friendly ATP sampling swab. To perform an analysis, one takes the swab and rubs it across a surface. The swab is sticky, allowing it to pick up any contaminants that might be on the surface. (For best results, it's advised to swab multiple areas within an environment to obtain comprehensive results). After one has swabbed an area, the swab is inserted into the Hygiena ATP testing device. The device analyzes the sample to determine the presence of ATP.

Are you interested in a test for bacterial infection? Ready to have your home, rental property, or workplace tested for germs and infective substances?

Call B.D.D.S. at 1-800-704-4654 to schedule your appointment.

The Hygiena EnSURE Test also Tests Liquids for Germs

A different type of swab is used for liquid applications, but the testing process is more or less the same. The liquid test feature is particularly helpful when one would like to test drinking water, a restaurant’s ice machine, or wash water.

The Hygiena ATP Meter in Action

Want to see some videos of the device in action? Hygiena has a YouTube channel with several short videos of the meter being used in the field, as well as other helpful videos showing how the EnSURE Touch works.

What Germs, Bacteria, Viruses, and Pathogens Does the Hygiena EnSURE Touch Test?

Remember, rather than testing for specific organisms, the Hygiena EnSURE Touch tests for ATP, a universal molecule found in all potentially harmful microorganisms. The EnSURE Touch offers a comprehensive testing approach in which the device tests surfaces or liquids for all potentially harmful critters.

B.D.D.S. can utilize the EnSURE Touch to examine an area for:


Bacteria refers to a large family of unicellular organisms. Some bacteria are harmful and can cause disease. Hygiena's germ test technology effectively analyzes surfaces and liquids for bacteria.


Viruses are infective critters, usually appearing in the form of microscopic organisms. Hygiena EnSURE Touch tests for viruses by discovering the telltale ATP molecules present in those viruses.


Pathogens are microscopic organisms that can cause infection. Since pathogens carry ATP, and Hygiena EnSURE Touch can detect their presence.


Germs simply refer to any type of microorganism that can carry disease. Because germs have ATP as part of their molecular structure, the Hygiena EnSURE Touch can detect such organisms.

Ready to have your home, rental property, or workplace tested for germs and infective substances? Call B.D.D.S. at 1-800-704-4654 to get started.
