Cleaning by Colors: How Color Coded Cleaning Affects You

Color coded microfiber cloths and flat mops reduce cross contamination for the healthiest commercial cleaning.Color coded microfiber cloths and flat mops reduce cross contamination for the healthiest commercial cleaning.

Have you ever watched a janitor wipe down your desk, a smudge on the floor, and then the table in the break rooms with the same dirty rag? Have you wondered what germs were traveling on that old cloth?

Cross contamination is a hot topic in the food and cleaning industries for good reason. Who would want to eat off a surface that was cleaned with the same cloth that cleaned the grimy bathroom?

If you clean or manage daycare centers, restaurants, medical facilities, fitness centers, or nursing homes, you know that cross contamination is preventable, but requires a little extra care.

Coverall led an industry trend to color code our microfiber cleaning cloths and mop heads according to their designated function and area of use. This practice helps eliminate mistakes and promotes safety and training – particularly in germy hot spots or environments that must be sterile. The end result of a properly color coded, best practice cleaning system is a healthier environment.
