Cross-contamination is one of the highest risks in the spread of infection. By pairing each color with a different area within a facility prevents the transfer of bacteria between rooms, significantly reducing the spread of infection. To most effectively reduce this risk, AcoStar Cleaning apply the color-code system with the 4 different colors highlighting to employees which equipment should be used where.
What is Color-Coded System?

Why is it important?
Color-coding is our first line of defense in protecting the hygiene standards of any commercial location.
How do we prevent cross-contamination?
Use a specific mop for each room. Unlike traditional cotton mops, microfiber flat mops take up little space and can be stacked so you may use a mop for every room. Never take the mop that we just used in the restroom and bring those germs out into the general areas and hallways. Clean the bathroom, take off the mop, put it in your laundry bag, and start fresh with a new mop as we move into a new area. This will make sure whatever the germs are in a particular area are contained.
