The cleaning color code

Colour coding is a basic system, to avoid contamination and to optimise cleaning we differentiate between cloths, wipes and scouring pads and various cleaning materials. We can use a large number of colours to identify, at a quick look, for which type of surface or area the material is being used. At LCM we generally use the following 4 colours.

Red or pink

Surfaces with high risk of biological contamination

Wc, Urinal, Bidet


Medium Biological Risk and frequent contact with water

Sanitary area, washbasin, shower


For matt furniture

Furniture, cash desk area, changing rooms, tables, stands


For polished surfaces

Glass, windows, mirrors
