Colour Coded Cleaning Equipment
In order to ensure the most thorough hygiene standards are maintained, it is important to follow the colour coded cleaning system. Using this system, cleaning areas are designated a colour in order to segregate cleaning equipment in order to reduce cross contamination. Follow the guide below that shows you which colour is suited to which area, and some examples to those types of cleaning.
This simple system is an important step that help to organise your cleaning systems and whilst it is not a legal requirement, it is good practice, especially in commercial environments.
