The Increasing Importance of Cleaning Fitness Facilities
People spend time at your fitness center so that they’ll be healthier, but health and fitness centers offer bacteria and germs ideal places to thrive – warm, moist places like saunas, shower stalls and locker rooms. So, while your members work out – they also may be fighting off a host of bacteria that could cause an unexpected illness.
While many patrons will use disinfectant wipes and sprays on treadmills and cardio machines, other high-touch items — like dumbbells, free weights, and balls used in close-contact sports — are often neglected. Computer keyboards, for example, can harbor up to 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat and need to be cleaned. Phones, door handles, drinking fountains and even the magazines that are shared from one person to the next are notorious for hosting germs.
Coverall Franchisees provide commercial cleaning services to fitness centers, health clubs, spas, gyms, and other related facilities. With Coverall’s Health-Based Cleaning System Program, your business will not only look clean and smell clean, it will actually be a cleaner, healthier place to get fit.
How Gyms and Fitness Facilities are Cleaned
Since MRSA and many other organisms can be spread by touching contaminated surfaces, Coverall Franchisees disinfect all critical control point surfaces nightly, especially those in the locker room. Also, while many gyms now emphasize the cleaning of equipment and mats, it’s important to also disinfect all high-touch surfaces such as handrails, tables, keyboards, phones, drinking fountains and other commonly overlooked surfaces that can have an increased risk for transmitting infection. The Coverall Program also uses color-coded microfiber cloth to avoid cross-contamination, rather than using the same cloths and mops in multiple areas.
On behalf of its franchisees, Coverall will walk through your facility to identify hot spots and customize a cleaning schedule based on your needs and budget. We will ask good questions to understand what is most important to you so that the cleaning consistently meets your expectations.
