Color Coding System

WHAT IS COLOR CODING?
Color Coding is a visual coding system which reduces language & literacy barrier when training different kind of people of the same institution in proper cleaning processes. It helps the operator in quick selection of the appropriate equipment to clean different areas.

WHY COLOR CODING?
Color Coding is very important while cleaning as it helps in preventing cross contamination, improves employee’s performance, increases safety of the property, reduces chemical use and mis-use, etc.

HOW TO FOLLOW COLOR CODING?
Color Coding is Defined by 4 Colors, i.e., Red, Blue, Green, Yellow

Color Coding 2

Red for High Risk Areas
Suitable for Sanitary Fittings & Washrooms Floors

Blue for General Low Risk Areas
Suitable for Rooms, Receptions, Lobby, Corridors

Green for Food Areas
Suitable for Food & Bar Areas, Restaurants, Kitchens, Cafes, Etc

Yellow for Medium Risk Areas
Suitable for Wash Basins & Washroom Surfaces, Tubs, Sinks

 
ADVANTAGES OF USE OF COLOR CODING

1. Enhances Building Safety – color coding reduces the risk of accidents arising from the misuse of tools or chemicals in the wrong area. For instance, by preventing the use of greasy kitchen mops on entryway floors, smart color can lower the incidence of potentially expensive “slip & fall” accidents.

2. Deters chemical misuse – color reduces the transfer of harmful substances by isolating potentially hazardous cleaning chemicals into their appropriate areas.

3. Simplifies supply management – by keeping cleaning tools in their proper areas, smart color allows custodial departments to keep better track of their equipment and supplies. Productivity increases when employees no longer have to search for misplaced tools or proper cleaning equipment.

4. Preserves facility assets – color protects valuable assets by reducing the risk of using proper chemicals or applications on floors and other surfaces. Floor finishing supplies can be color coded to eliminate confusion with floor stripping supplies to preserve the appearance of high priced specialty flooring.

5. Elevates employee performance – smart color enhances the professional appearance of employees and increases their efficiency by making it easy to organize the cleaning process. Ergonomic tool design also reduces fatigue and injury to boost productivity.

Microfiber System

DEFINATION & COMPOSITION
Microfiber is a new age cleaning. Microfiber is a very fine synthetic fibre composed of 2 polymers, polyester and polyamide (nylon) which combine in a single thread; usually the composition is 80 % / 20 % but 70% / 30 % is also common.

HUMAN HAIR V/s MICROFIBER
Wool is the most thick textile fibre existing in nature: size is 18-24 micron; Cotton has normally, a size of 13.5 micron; silk is the most thin natural Fibre existing in nature: size is 12 micron; a human hair has a size of 300 Micron; microfiber is 100 times finer than a human hair, size is 3-5 micron & sometimes even less.

Micron is the thousandth part of the millimetre and it is used as the unit of measurement of fibres diameter.

CHARACTERISTICS OF MICROFIBERS

  • Polyester has an electrostatic effect that captures and retains dust
  • Polyamide has an absorptive capacity that, when combined with water or cleaning solution, facilitates and allows the removal of dirt, grease and bacteria on any surface without leaving watermarks or stains
  • The result of the capillary effect created between polyester filaments and polyamide core is a very high absorbency
  • It can take various forms: non woven, woven, knitted
  • Less consumption of chemical
  • Can be used on all surfaces.
  •  
    ADVANTAGES OF MICROFIBERS

  • Labour Savings Up To 30%
  • Easier And Faster Than Conventional Mopping System
  • Minimum Training Required
  • Better Cleaning
  • Improved Dust Removal
  • Improved Cleaning Action
  • Improved Bacteria Removal (Up To 95%)
  • Reduces Cross Contamination
  • Easier To Use
  • Lighter Weight Than Conventional Mops
  • Better Control Of The Mop
  • Eliminates Lifting Of Heavy Mops And Cleaning Solutions
  • Eliminates Frequent Changing Of Solution (Less 80%)
  • Safer
  • Less Solution Left On The Floor(Because To The Fine Pores)
  • Scratch & Streak-Free Material
  • Product Saving
  • Microfiber Mops Outlast Conventional Mops
  • Can Be Laundered A Minimum Of 300 + Washings
  • Energy Saving
  • Cost Less To Wash And Dry Microfiber Mops Than Conventional Mops
  • Dry Without Heat
  • Microfiber

    LAUNDRY INSTRUCTIONS

  • Wash at high temperature 200°f/95°c
  • Wash with other microfiber products
  • For best results keep them separate from other textiles because the microfiber may pick up loose fibres
  • Do not use bleach as it may shorten fibres life
  • Do not use fabric softener as it tends to take away the positive charge. If, by mistake fabric softener was used wash again with water only
  • Do not use chlorine
  • Tumble dry

    WHAT IS GREEN MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY?
    This is a unique technology in producing microfiber yarn to skip dyeing process, thus minimizing pollution to environment. Most of our microfibers are produced under Green Manufacturing Technology.
