Goldcrest's Guide to Colour Coded Cleaning
One of the major risks to the transmission of infections is cross-contamination. To assist in the prevention of cross-contamination the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) developed a colour cleaning chart to standardise and simplify cleaning processes. These colours are then transferred and used as colour coding for cleaning equipment and supplies so that cross-contamination is easy to avoid.
The need for, and use of, colour coding is especially significant in high risk sites like hospitals and healthcare facilities where the risk of infection and cross-contamination is high. At Goldcrest we adopt these practices for all of our clients and our staff are trained to implement these high standards of cleaning.
Blue has been designated as a low-risk colour. These include areas like window ledges, hallways, desk tops in offices and classrooms, and for routine cleaning and polishing. These are places where bacterial infection is typically less of a problem than in other places, such bathrooms or kitchens. Cleaning supplies and tools with the colour blue can be utilised on a wider variety of low-risk areas.
Green is designated for use in food and drink preparation areas. These areas include kitchens, bars and food-processing facilities. Cross-contamination risk is increased significantly when raw meat and fish are exposed to surfaces and utensils. Therefore, it is crucial to control the usage of cleaning products and supplies in these locations.
Hazards are universally associated with the colour red. Washroom floors, urinals, and toilets all fall under this red colour designation. This is because certain locations, particularly in hospitals, are thought to provide a significant risk of bacterial contamination. The risk of contaminating regions outside of these is reduced by only cleaning them with tools that have a red code, such as cloths, mops, buckets, and gloves.
Clinical use is indicated by the colour yellow. But it has also been designated for use on all other bathroom surfaces such as sinks, mirrors, tiled walls, glass, and metal. Using two different colour cleaning products in high risk areas helps to further prevent the spread of illness. For instance using red products for toilets and urinals while using yellow products for taps and sinks.
