Certainly, the organism should be subjected to disinfectant efficacy testing.  From Parenteral Drug Association Technical Report No. 70, Fundamentals of Cleaning and Disinfection Programs for Aseptic Manufacturing Facilities: "Selection of organisms should be based on the type of environmental isolates recovered from the facility (environmental isolates are preferred); however, if facility isolates are not available ATCC cultures ... representing facility isolates are acceptable until facility isolates can be obtained."
