Members seeking their perfect gym have high expectations. More than anything else, they want a clean and sanitary environment to exercise in. The best way to give your members the cleanliness standards they desire without working overtime wiping down seats, lifting treadmills to vacuum dust, and spraying down bathroom mirrors is to hire a professional cleaning company.
Protect Against Illness
One of the best ways to show your members you care about their overall health is by prioritizing the cleanliness of your gym, lockers, and equipment. During flu and cold seasons, gym equipment can be a breeding ground for spreading germs and viruses from member to member.
Most gyms ask members to clean up before and after themselves when using equipment by offering disposable wipes or spray cleaners. The effectiveness of cleaners relies on the usage and not the solution. Inappropriate use can result in less than clean equipment, damage to equipment, and no protection against the spread of bacteria and viruses for the next user. Improper cleaners, like hand wipes, can leave behind the germs they’re meant to wipe away when used on equipment.
Protect Your Equipment
The sweat and oil left behind by enthusiastic exercisers, if not promptly wiped up and taken care of, can lead to deterioration of equipment and equipment padding. The cleaner you provide for your members also makes a difference. It you are concerned about the spread of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), choose a cleaner that indicates on the label that it protects against MRSA. Some gyms require that cleaning products be registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as antibacterial, others focus on combatting oil and grease and not bacteria, and others focus on whether or not a cleaner is eco-friendly or green.
Older alcohol and phenol based cleaners can be corrosive, do damage to equipment, lead to premature wear, and cause cracking in vinyl and plastic surfaces, so be sure to do your research. When hiring a professional cleaning service like Foreman Pro Cleaning, you can rest assured they will use the proper cleaning solution for your gym’s needs.
Protect Your Future
Regular maintenance takes a lot of time that you might not have. By hiring a professional cleaning service for your gym or fitness center, you can ensure your equipment and facility will last a long time. Besides spreading bacteria, sweat contains acids and salts that cause rust to form on equipment and consequently wear down faster. Dust gets trapped in machines every day and can cause you to shell out money for a new treadmill earlier than you expected. Dust underneath the belt causes friction on the wax and prevents the treadmill’s fan for cooling the equipment properly.
