Your 6 Step Guide to Cleaning
Six step Hygiene guide
- Deep Clean
- Remove Excess Water & Dry
2. PRE-CLEAN:Then we need to remove all heavy debris either by hand, brush, brooms, scrapers, squeegees, etc.
3. DEEP CLEANING:
Then apply Klenzite to the surface or equipment to be cleaned in the appropriate way.
This can be done by foaming, spraying or brushing on. It is important when foaming to start from the bottom and work up.
For best results use Klenzite with hot water and allow time to penetrate dirt, if necessary use a brush or scouring pad to agitate. It is important to allow Klenzite cleaning solution time to penetrate the dirt and then scrub the surface if needed. Never allow the Cleaning solution Klenzite to dry on the surface before rinsing, if this happens it will need to be applied again.
4. RINSE DOWN
Once we have cleaned down
with Klenzite it is important to rinse all areas thoroughly. When rinsing always
start at the top and work down. We have to remove any soiling or chemical
traces at this stage.
After rinsing check all traces of grease and debris have been removed from the cleaned surface. If necessary repeat steps 3 and 4 before sanitising.
It is important to note sanitizers are only effective on surfaces that have
been thoroughly cleaned. Any residual soiling can chemically or
physically impair the efficacy of sanitizers. This is due to the soiling shielding
microorganisms from direct contact with the sanitiser.
Once we have rinsed down you can now apply Terminator (recommended for small areas) a ready to use solution or Concentrated Anti Bac Sanitiser for larger areas. Both products are EN 1276 manufactured and certified for use in food processing facilities.
Always leave Sanitiser in contact with the surface for the manufacturers recommended contact time.
6. REMOVE EXCESS WATER & DRY
It is important that
areas where water has pooled that they be dried using a floor squeegee. As pooled
water may act as a medium for bacteria growth and should be dried. Clean,
disposable paper towels may be used to dry other surfaces, especially equipment
that has the potential to rust.
If necessary use fresh clean water to rinse away excess sanitiser.
If possible allow to dry naturally. Do not under any circumstances dry with a cloth or towel, as this may spread germs.
The frequency usage of the 6 step procedure will depend on the risk of cross contamination associated with the surface. Clean as you go may be adequate throughout the day to prevent the spread of germs. .
