What is colour coded cleaning and why is it important?

Commercial colour coded cleaning is a simple and effective hygiene approach that more and more companies are using. In colour coded cleaning, every work area has its own colour-coded commercial cleaning equipment which isn’t supposed to be used in other areas of a facility. The aim of commercial colour coded cleaning is to avoid cross-contamination between different work areas.   What do the different colours mean? A system of colour codes was developed by The British Institute of Cleaning (BICSc) – a leading commercial cleaning body – in the 1990s. In the BICSc system, every major work area has a designated colour code. The 5 colour codes are red, yellow, blue, green and white. Code Red – red is for toilets and bathrooms Code Yellow – yellow is for infectious areas e.g. hospitals or medical centres Code Blue – blue is for general areas and general cleaning Code Green – green is for kitchen and food prep Code White – white is for operating theatres A good starting point for commercial colour coded cleaning is the mop and bucket: use a red-coloured mop and bucket to clean the toilets; and a yellow-coloured mop and bucket to clean the kitchen. It’s...

The Importance of pH in Commercial Cleaning (How to Choose the Right Product & Avoid Costly Mistakes)

Understanding the pH of cleaning products is vitally important in the commercial cleaning industry. Choose the wrong product at home, and you could damage a spot on your carpet, or tarnish a surface, but choose the wrong product while at work, and you could cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damages – and possibly lose your contract. So to avoid any nasty mistakes, let’s take a look at how pH is measured and what you need to know. The suitability of your commercial cleaning products is largely based on their pH levels. You’ve probably seen the coloured acid-alkaline charts like the one above, where the scale goes between 0 and 14, with zero being the most acidic, 14 the most alkaline and 7 being neutral. Now, pH is generally understood to mean the “potential of hydrogen” and is a measurement of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance when dissolved in water. Although pH is a measurement, it differs from temperature measurement, for example, which is measured in degrees, as pH is measured logarithmically. On a logarithmic scale, each number is 10 times more (or less) powerful than the last. For example, the pH of 3 is 10 times...
