Despite the high level of automation in hygiene areas, there are use cases that require manual cleaning procedures. This is essential for the entire cleaning process, especially in terms of energy efficiency and time savings. PHT offers the appropriate cleaning materials such as brooms, brushes, scrapers, squeegees and handles for professional applications. The materials are color-coded and therefore offer the highest level of hygiene safety.
Manual cleaning needs are still essential in productions. Floors, floor drains, equipment, and other areas require manual cleaning using scrapers, brooms, squeegees, etc. Since cleaning equipment is in direct contact with possible sources of bacteria, hygienic design and storage is critical to minimize the risk of contamination. To ensure that the devices are only used for their intended purpose, PHT recommends color coding in the company, in which each area is assigned a specific color of the cleaning devices. This ensures easy assignment.
Cleaning supplies for manual cleaning include all equipment such as brooms, shovels, scrapers, squeegees, buckets and much more. What differentiates professional cleaning supplies from normal cleaning equipment? Hygiene is particularly important in production companies, which is why professional cleaning equipment must be particularly hygienic. Since they constantly come into contact with potential sources of bacteria, they are designed with a hygienic design . This means that the materials and design are designed for quick cleaning and drying of the devices, for example through specially arranged bristles or avoiding gaps.
A major issue in companies is that there is a risk of mixing up cleaning equipment between different hygiene areas such as production and warehouse or floor and facilities. The risk of contamination can be significantly reduced using a color system by assigning a color to each area. Let’s give an example: The cleaning needs in a production area for use on the floors are in the color red, the color blue is used for the cleaning equipment in the facilities. This means employees know exactly which devices are used where and the risk of contamination is reduced sustainably.
The topics of hygienic design and allocation are covered by the PHT cleaning requirements. What about storage? Storage is also particularly important, as cleaning devices can only remain hygienic and long-lasting if stored correctly. The PHT solution: Shadow walls on which holders are attached for cleaning needs. The shadow walls also have a hygienic design and depict the cleaning devices as shadows according to their respective color coding. This means you can always keep an overview and always have the devices to hand.
The PHT cleaning devices can generally be used anywhere, but are particularly suitable for hygiene-sensitive areas. Their use ensures hygiene in butcher shops, meat shops, bakeries, dairies and other hygiene-sensitive areas. To ensure operational hygiene in hygiene-sensitive areas, PHT recommends integrating a low-pressure foam cleaning system.
