What is a Color Coded Microfiber System?

A color coded microfiber system assigns specific colors to different cleaning tasks or areas within a facility. Each color represents a designated use, such as cleaning restrooms, handling food preparation areas, or wiping down desks and surfaces. This method helps prevent cross contamination by ensuring that the same cloth or mop is not used in multiple areas, thereby reducing the spread of bacteria and viruses.

Benefits of a Color Coded Microfiber System:

  1. Enhanced Hygiene: Avoid inadvertently spreading germs from one area to another - this is crucial in environments where hygiene is paramount, such as hospitals, restaurants, and schools.

  2. Simplified Training: Instead of memorizing complex cleaning protocols, staff can quickly learn which color corresponds to which task, making onboarding faster and more effective.

  3. Reduced Risk of Contamination: Each area gets a dedicated set of microfiber cloths or mops, minimizing the risk of cross contamination.

  4. Improved Efficiency: This streamlined approach allows staff to focus on thorough cleaning without interruption.

Implementing a Color Coded System

To implement a color coded microfiber system effectively:

  • Choose colors based on your facility’s needs and cleaning protocols.
  • Provide training to staff on the importance of using the designated colors correctly.
  • Regularly inspect and replace microfiber cloths and mops as needed to maintain effectiveness.
  • Ask the Great Western Supply team for instructional material and training.
