Keeping the facility clean is one the biggest challenges athletic clubs, gyms, or fitness centers. Handling public and people who are sweating that traverse throughout establishment. The equipment, machines, showers, lockers, restrooms, along with the common areas, drinking fountains, and vending machines are all saturated in germs. Simply and better done by Baker Sandoval Cleaning, is maintaining the athletic club to keep it clean, sanitized, and presentable for your staff, clients, and potential members.
Cleaning Exercise Machines, Workout Equipment & Weights
Vital for killing the germs and bacteria that can thrive in such conditions is ensuring the exercise equipment, weights, and machines are periodically deep cleaned, at least once a week, but more often the better. Also, these surfaces should be wiped down with a disinfectant to minimize the germs being distributed around the facility multiple times day. During the walk through of the facility to avoid spreading the germs, be sure to include touch points like free weights, treadmill controls, and machine handles and handlebars. Use disinfectant wipes to avoid cross contamination or designated rags and cleaner at each equipment station.
Restrooms are rather complex to minimize the risk of cross-contamination for customer health and to manage a clean space for your customers and prospective members. Remove the buildup of grit and grime as your bathroom’s toilets, sinks, stalls, and floors are properly cleaned and disinfected. In between your professional cleaning services, be sure to have designated cleaning supplies for the bathrooms to avoid cross contamination. You do not want the reputation of your gym is where patrons can easily catch the flu, or the place looks like a dump.
Clean Locker Rooms & Showers
Locker and/or shower room is the perfect climate for mold and mildew to thrive, and though not every facility offers these elements, if applicable, disinfecting the room at the end of the day is important to not only combat the germs and bacteria members track in, but also combat the potential microbe growth. At the very least touched at the end of the day, the locker rooms and showers should ideally be wiped down and properly ventilated throughout the day. Included in the wipe down regiment, be sure to touch on the handles, floors, and curtains as well. Any surfaces that are constantly touched should be cleaned.
Cleaning Common Touch Points & Floors are Important
Just a few examples of common touch points in a gym are the paper towel dispensers, benches, computer screens, and exercise mats. Because the common touch points have the highest potential for germ transfer, they need to be cleaned often. Throughout the day, the surfaces staff and members make contact should be assured that they are cleaned and disinfected. Not only to maintain a neat and organized appearance, but the floors should be vacuumed and/or swept and touched mopped, at least at the end of the day so the facility is cleaned at the start of a new day, but throughout the day is optimal.
