Duration

Guarantee of AL-TA’AKEEM’s effectiveness and duration related to the following fields of application

SPECIAL Applications
6 months

Hospitals, Clinics, Laboratories, Kitchens, Bathrooms and all locations where high level of hygiene is required or where treated surfaces are subject to significant abrasion.The 12 months duration of the treatment under standard conditions of application has been certified based on an accelerated weathering/ageing test according to ASTM G154/12a standard and subsequent testing according to BS EN 1276:2009 standard.

STANDARD Applications
12 months

All other cases of conventional application (offices, residences, factories, etc.) except special application cases.Our service will be also proven, for the client’s future reference, by a QR Code, which will provide all the useful information and images related to the application of our sanitizing procedure of that specific location.


Measurements

AL-TA’AKEEM’s effectiveness is monitored periodically for the entire duration of the warranty period


Frequency of tests

Tests to monitor the effectiveness of the TiO2 coating are conducted on a regular basis.

- Before the application
- After the application
- Every 3 months*


*more frequently for special cases ofapplication

Surface contamination negative tests

These tests are carried out with a professional ATP Monitoring System (bioluminometer). Adenosine Triphosphate, a.k.a. ATP, is the energy molecule found in all living and once-living organisms. With an ATP hygiene monitoring system, swab samples are taken from control surfaces and tested for ATP presence, measuring the level of organic contamination in seconds, allowing to verify that the TiO2 coating is effective and that organic contamination is below safe target values.

Surface contamination positive tests

Every client receives a white ceramic tile as a test sample, treated with the same product and at the same time of the other spaces. This sample is regularly contaminated with methylene blue (an organic stainer) or with a red organic ink and the effectiveness of the treatment can be visually verified, as the tile, covered in blue/red, will turn back to the original white color after exposure to direct sunlight if the coating is still effective.

Air contamination tests

These tests are carried out with a professional HCHO/VOCs air quality meter.Formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are the most dangerous substance groups with regard to indoor air exposure. Both concentrations are read simultaneously in real time during tests to ensure that the room air pollution is harmless and remains within safe target values.
