Sorry but the BS answer is "it depends".

 

Typically on food contact surfaces in high risk areas you'd want <100 TVC after cleaning, in some high care factories you would use enteros as your indicator organism.  For people you'd want <20 staph normally and absence of any other key pathogens you're swabbing for.
