4-Color Coding system

4-Color Coding system

The basic thinking behind Colour Coded Cleaning: Use colours to segregate the different types of tasks you have to carry on areas you have to clean to avoid cross contamination of bacteria, germs and viruses.
This easy system is an established cleaning standard in professional environments like hospitals and restaurants where cross contamination will lead to illness. There you would not want to clean the surfaces of a kitchen with a cloth that has been previously used to clean the toilet bowl (bathroom tiles). The best practice in a hospital should be good enough for your home.
 

Colour coding can be broken down into 4 areas

For this system to work you will need to assign different colours of cleaning cloths to each area, making it easily identifiable. This hygienic cleaning system can be applied to any cleaning equipment used in each area: e.g. microfiber cloths to scouring sponges.

Regular change of refills

Regular change of refills

As bacteria, viruses and germs multiply particularly well in a moist environment it is important to let the cleaning equipment dry well and change or wash cleaning cloths frequently.

All Vileda cloths and scouring sponges are very durable and can be washed at a temperature of at least 60° C or higher.

Sustainable cleaning and washing begins by using several refills at home and washing them all together.

Many infectious diseases are spread via our hands. Therefore it´s important to keep your hands clean and protect them.

How Gloves Help: Wearing disposable gloves helps during cleaning because it makes you aware of what you are doing with your hands and you are less likely to touch your face with gloved hands. This means that germs that stick to surfaces and thus get onto our hands cannot reach mouth, eyes or other sensitive areas of your body.

The usage of disposable gloves are the best choice for cleaning delicate areas (e.g. toilets) or removing infectious or unpleasant soiling (e.g. vomit or dog feces).

Disposable gloves should then be thrown away directly after use.

The VILEDA Turbo/Ultramax Turbo/Spin&Clean (country needs to define local hero) bucket systems allow for a handless wringing.

Your hands stay clean and dry always.

Just a quick wipe or just dusting? That's yesterday's cleaning!

Just a quick wipe or just dusting? That's yesterday's cleaning!

VILEDA mop pads are made with microfibres, which consist of millions of tiny synthetic fibers. While you wet-clean your floor, all of these tiny fibers loosen the dirt and physically pick it up – and also remove up to 99% of bacteria without the use of harsh cleaning chemicals.

For an even more hygienic home you can use for sure any cleaning solution of your choice when cleaning with a VILEDA mop:

1 cap of detergent (30ml) is enough for 5 liters of water

If you use a detergent with alcohol (e.g. disinfection), better use cold water. The alcohol would evaporate in hot water.

VILEDA microfiber mop heads are very durable and can be washed up to 60° C

Sustainable cleaning and wash begins using several mop refills for backup at home. It is best to swap refills frequently and wash all cleaning equipment together. 
*Research by an independent, accredited institute for microbiology & immunology.

Special tip: To disinfect large areas simply pour disinfectant directly into the tank of the Vileda SprayMop 1-2 Spray. Its spray head easily accesses and disinfects hard to reach and bacteria-prone areas - e.g. under the toilet.

In order to catch all particles towards the centre of the room and to avoid just moving the dirt from one corner to another move the mop in an eliptical movement, just like a horizontal 8.

The right way of cleaning – everywhere

Bacteria especially love moist environments and like to multiply where we don't expect them to. However how to clean? First the floor, then the shelves, or the other way around? Our hygiene concept will not only save you time, but will keep your home 99 % bacteria-free from top to bottom. And here's the first secret of the concept: "top to bottom" is in itself the perfect cleaning system: Start with ceilings. Then tackle work surfaces, tables and drawers. Vertical cleaning.

BATHROOM

BATHROOM

Use separate cleaning cloths for the sanitary area – shower, washbasin, tiles.

Bacteria love to multiply in wet rooms. To prevent this wipe or squeeze the surfaces dry with separate cleaning cloths or a squeegee right after showering or washing.

Toilet

Toilet

Wash out your cleaning cloths and clean the toilet seat well on both sides.

Use gloves to protect your hands

Scrub the toilet rim and interior with the toilet brush or separate scouring sponge.

Home office

Home office

In the current worls climate more and more people are moving into their own four walls for mobile work or home office. Whether this is short-term or long-term: bacteria multiply on frequently touched hardware: the desk, laptop or keyboard.

Use separate cleaning cloths for work surfaces and hardware

Remove crumbs and coarse dirt carefully from your computer or laptop keyboard with a vacuum cleaner. Gently wipe gaps with cotton swabs, a toothbrush or even toothpicks.

Deep clean the mouse or keyboard with a damp microfiber cloth. Remove stubborn dirt with a damp, but thoroughly wringed cloth.

Remove dust from the monitor with a soft microfiber cloth and wipe grease fingers etc. with a damp microfiber cloth.
