Optima Guardian Antibacterial microfibre cloths have been treated with an antibacterial agent that will inhibit the growth of bacteria within the structure of the cloths, keeping them fresher and cleaner for longer. Best used damp and available in 4 colour coded options to prevent against cross contamination.

Microfiber excels at cleaning due to the thinness of its fibers. The spaces and holes in the weave pattern of the fiber catch and hold dirt. The more spaces and grooves, the more dirt the fabric can hold. This is excellent for removing bacteria from a surface and what makes microfibre the ultimate cleaning fabric.

However if the cloths are not laundered immediately after use, then this trapped bacteria can become a breeding ground for microorganisms. Increasing the risk of cross contamination and reducing the life of the product.

What is Microfibre?

Fibre can be described as microfibre when it weighs less than 1 gram per 10km of length. For most microfibres, this equates to a diameter of less than 0.12 denier. To give you an idea, this is 100 times thinner than a human hair. Microfibre is made from a mixture of polyester and polyamide bi-component fibre. It is split into many micro-segments by special physical & chemical treatments.

    General Purpose Cleaning

    Microfibre is very versatile and although it performs best when damp it can also be used dry for dusting surfaces.

Guide to Colour Coding

Colour coded cleaning, the process in which colours are paired with cleaning equipment for certain locations. This helps in reducing the spread of germs across areas as well as increasing hygiene throughout a business or home.

For example using a single mop to clean every floor in a restaurant, can spread bacteria from the washrooms and toilets to kitchen and also food preparation areas. This carries a risk of cross contamination and therefore illness. Applying a colour coded system to set apart sensitive areas from one-another is the most efficient and effective way of reducing the risk of cross contamination.

Developed by the BICSc is a universal colour code chart which is recommended for use within the cleaning industry.

Red - Sanitary Appliances & Washroom Floors

Red is assigned to areas such as urinals, toilets and washroom floors. As these areas are universally regarded to have a high-risk of bacterial contamination. By using only red-coded cleaning products such as cloths, mops, buckets and also gloves to clean them, the risk of spreading bacteria outside of these areas are reduced.

Yellow - Clinical & Healthcare

Yellow is assigned to clinical areas, however yellow is often used outside of the care industry as a colour assigned to the cleaning of all other washroom surfaces, including sinks, mirrors, cubicles, tiled walls, glass and also metal. Having two different colour codes for wash rooms ensures that the same cleaning products are not used on toilet seats or urinals as on sinks and taps. This helps to further contain the spread of infection.

Green - General Food and Bar Use

Green has been assigned to food and drink preparation areas, including kitchens and bar areas. Food preparation areas pose a high risk of cross-contamination particularly from uncooked meat and fish. Therefore it’s crucial to control the use of cleaning products in these areas.

Blue - General Lower Risk Areas (Excluding Food Areas)

Blue has been coded for low-risk areas, such as offices and hallways, as well as for general dusting or polishing. As there is usually a lower degree of bacterial contamination in these areas compared to other areas, blue coded cleaning products can be used across a wider range of surfaces.
