Cross Out Contamination- Color Code With Microfiber
Check out the April issue Cleaning and Maintenance Management Magazine for our article on using microfiber to prevent cross contamination in commercial cleaning applications. Below is an infographic that we created on the subject:
As you can see, there is a lot that goes into preventing cross contamination. It’s important to teach cleaning professionals why preventing cross contamination is important, in addition to how to actually do it. The colors are not set in stone, you can customize them to suit your needs, but again, as a guideline, here are the colors we recommend:
Red: Sanitary Appliances
Yellow: Other Restroom Fixtures
Green: Kitchen and Food Prep Areas
Blue: Low Risk Areas like offices, classrooms and common areas.
Remember, it’s also important to keep your equipment clean and mind how you handle the dirty and the clean microfiber!
